While SI Swimsuit certainly leads the pack with the latest swimwear trends, many of our models are full-blown fashionistas. Hunter McGrady has her own size-inclusive clothing line All Worthy. Olivia Culpo (and her sisters) collaborated with Macy’s on a range of drool-worthy pieces. Camille Kostek has her own travel inspired line with Dune Jewelry. But sometimes, we want to dig a little into the world of fashion, and there's no better way to do that than by listening to one of the many style-focused podcasts. Here are five of the top ones you need to hear.
In Charge with DVF
Diane von Furstenberg is an idol in the fashion industry who has also successfully positioned herself as a cultural icon with her TV appearances and film production efforts. Last year she joined the podcasting world by releasing In Charge with DVF, a Spotify podcast which highlights hardworking women. In each episode she talks about her history with fashion and interviews other successful female figures like Kris Jenner and Priyanka Chopra.
REVOLVE, one of the biggest online retailers for trendy duds, created a podcast covering topics that relate to the brand's lifestyle ethos. Think travel inspiration and behind-the-scenes info about the brand's epic celeb-packed parties. And speaking of celebrities, you can expect interviews with plenty of them like supermodel Miranda Kerr, Olympic gold medalist Nastia Liukin and hairstylist-to-the-stars Jen Atkin.
Leave Your Mark
There's no doubt SI Swimsuit models have left their mark on the world and built incredible personal brands (we're looking at you, Kathy Ireland!). But wouldn't you love to know how to stand out in your chosen career path? Best-selling author and marketing executive Aliza Licht hosts Leave Your Mark, where she interviews many fashion industry guests to get their advice on succeeding in the working world.
Blamo! | Exploring Fashion with the People Who Shape It
It's not just designers and models that shape the world of fashion. Today, actors, athletes, chefs and creative directors all have a say in the future of fashion. And those are guests founder Jeremy Kirkland speaks to on Blamo! | Exploring Fashion with the People Who Shape It. Each episode highlights these fascinating figures' careers and journeys to find out how they got here and where the industry is going.
Dressed: The History of Fashion
Many of history's pivotal moments were marked by fashion, and a particular style always highlights entire decades. That's what podcast Dressed: The History of Fashion covers in its episodes. You'll learn about things like the Japanese origin of the flip-flop and details about historic turn-of-the-century balls. Of course, there are several episodes dedicated to the history of swimwear.
