Heading as far east as you could possibly bike, jog or scoot your Segway, no matter which latitude in the Chicago area, you're likely to run into one of Chicago's 33 sandy beaches. Yes, the beaches will be boppin' this summer, as they were last year, which is why we're bringing you some of the best selections of swimwear in the city. Sure there's Scoop on Rush, American Apparel, J Crew, or Benetton but we wanted to give a special focus to the four newcomers to the swimwear game and our four standby shops with large and luxe selections.
