Lord & Taylor

If the idea of swimwear shopping conjures feelings usually reserved for the dentist’s office, fret not: Lord & Taylor’s selection should soothe even the most reluctant buyer. Make a beeline for the first floor, where you’ll find Trina Turk bikinis and anything-but-boring Diesel men’s board shorts.
