Swimwear season

Yes, it’s still warm, summer, and beach weather, and we all need to make the most of it on the sand and by the pool before the cooler days arrive! Even if I’m not on vacation, somehow acquiring a great set of swimwear makes me feel just a bit tropical. So for anyone working on their tan (isn’t everyone?), there’s an awesome set of designers out there that are taking lycra to new

territories. There was a lot of excitement at the recent Miami Swim Show, and here is my take on that.

Australians do everything these days, and Camilla with Love is a fun, colorful brand on my radar. They have lots of fun prints, and their one-pieces have a nice boosted cup up top that enhances shape. The Brazilians do it all too…and Calzedonia has a nice assortment with great prices. Then there’s brands like For Love and Lemons, who master lingerie and swim, and the others whose style, fit and overall look are just instant winners.

Also, body chains are somewhat of the cherry on top in the bikini world. If you can throw in a little jewelry action, why not? My personal go-to for the bod is Elodie K, I think it adds a nice touch. I’ve added some good body chain inspiration to get you going!
