Arrested Fashion: Swimwear

When one lives a life of leisure in Newport Beach, sunglasses are not the only outdoor essential. Fashionable swimwear is also important. Here's a look at the Bluths' aquatic highlights, plus, as always, some pieces you can make your own.

"These guys are real dancers, they've never done any 'hot' policing."
ASOS: Diesel Tailored Swim Shorts
One hot sea-man.

After the jump suits from Lucille, Buster, Tobias and Lindsay Bluth!


Lucille brings her same love of pattern and color that she brings to her everyday dressing to her swimsuits for aqua aerobics. 

Anthropologie: Pops Of Print Maillot
Gottex Printed Bandeau
Water Splatter Maillot

The beach is a challenging place for a never nude. Here are a few Tobias approved styles, plus some more mainstream looks as well.

Do these effectively hide my thunder?

Insight trompe d'œil denim board shorts

American Apparel: Nylon Tricot Swim Brief
All kidding aside, swim briefs are best left to the never nudes, Europeans, or in athletic competition. That being said, there are other more attractive options out there for guys who want to reject the board-shorts hegemony and show a little leg.
ASOS: Orlebar Brown Swim Short
American Apaprel: Nylon Swim Trunk
"Body chocolate?"
Michael: "This is not going to be a day at the beach" Buster: "It's okay, Mom packed a change of clothes."
ASOS: Fred Perry
"Mom, I can't get down!"
Land's End: 9" Floral Volley Shorts
My last Buster suggestion isn't inspired by any particular pair he wears, I just think the whales are neat and a fun play on Buster's tumultuous relationship with sea life.
ASOS: Vilebrequin Whales Swim Shorts
"OH, C'MON!" Never sacrifice water safety for style.
The jets proved too powerful for Uncle Jack's tiny legs.
Women with small busts like Lindsay Bluth/Portia de Rossi look great in most types of bikini tops. One exception would be a a simple string top which may not give enough shape and accentuate a flatter chest. Here are a couple tops with the same keyhole styling which adds just a bit of interest to basic black.

Athleta String Bikini Bottom
