summer and the city

Wear a Sexy One-Piece Swimsuit to Lounge on Your Roof

It shouldn’t come as a surprise, but every July, all you can think about is how hot you are — sweating-from-every-pore, craving-the-ice-cold-relief-of-an-air-conditioner, please-take-all-the-clothes-off-my-body hot. Going to the beach helps, but not everyone lives near the ocean. If you’re one of those city-dwellers who happen to be landlocked, there’s the next best thing — your apartment building’s rooftop. With a towel, some sunscreen, and a sexy one-piece suit you can create a makeshift summer escape.

With that in mind we asked Cut contributor Shiona Turini to gather up some girls and throw a little rooftop beach party in the season’s most sultry one-piece swimsuits. Because who doesn’t want to be a hot child in the city? Scroll ahead to check out their day in the sun.
