With the Summer Solstice arriving, that means it’s officially shorts, bathing suits, and sandals weather. Specifically, though, I’m focusing on bathing suites. And adorable ones. I’m throwing caution to the wind with budget this time and instead, looking fully at fun patterns, unique shapes, and beautiful pieces.
First up? Kate Spade. Bathing suits are a relatively new item to this boutique shop. But man, do they know how to design suits for their brand. We’re talking bow shaped bikini tops; pleated skirt cover ups; and flamingo patterned one pieces. One of my favorites is their Georgica Beach Bandeau Maillot suit for (yes, bare with me) $151. The simple black suit is classy, with a bow at the bust and a classic/Hollywood glam silhouette. Another favorite? Their Georgica Beach Stripe cover-up skirt in geranium. It’s flouncy; it’s flirty; and it’s pink. Need I say more? It’s also priced at $160, but paired with one of their bandeau tops or pulled over a sleek suit, it’s a statement you’ll want to make this summer.
Next is Anthropologie. Just like all of their items, their bathing suits are made with unique patterns, etherial details, and feminine silhouettes. I’m loving their one piece scalloped suit ($98). It’s got adjustable/removable straps (wear it as a halter or without) and a scalloped bust-line and comes in beautiful patterns. Their cover-ups too are as etherial as they come. Boho chic at the beach? Check. Flowy and colorful? Check and check. From breezy kimonos to chic pull-overs, Anthropologie has got your coverups well, covered. My favorite is their Costa Cover-Up in blue motif. Yes, it’s $198, but it’s a piece that’ll take you from the beach to the resort effortlessly. Plus, Anthro’s two-pieces come in some of the most fun patterns—bright neons; classic stripes; graphic shapes; feminine florals; and a variety of shapes—bandeau; deep v; halter; bustier; etc.
Remember we mentioned Patagonia a few months ago? They sell bathing suits too. Look here for my post on them.
