I want to start off by saying I know not everyone is in a position to shop at the moment, but should you want to peek through my faves, here they are! Some of these suits are in my swimwear drawer and some are on my wishlist. So…what’s in a swimsuit? When shopping for swim, I like to consider the 3 Fs – fit, function, and fashion! Here’s a round up of my favorite pieces that are not only on-trend for this summer but also practical and durable enough to pack for your TBD getaway.
Must Have Bikinis
This red-ribbed bikini is the perfect pop of color for your summer style. With a high-waist and flattering cut, these Brazilian bottoms are jusssst cheeky enough.
Back to Black
Everyone has a staple black ‘kini that goes everywhere with you. This VIX suit is timeless and tasteful with subtle ruffled details that won’t clash if you want to mix and match bottoms.
For my active babes, let this pairing take you from swim to beach yoga to SUP paddle boarding and anywhere else the day may lead. This versatile towel can go from sunbathing to yoga mat in one sandy shake.
The seamless construction, medium coverage and *gorgeous* color blocking makes this suit flattering for every body type.
This bright bikini is trending for Summer 2020! We love the flattering high-waist and bold side detail of this swimsuit. Add a little sunshine to your swimsuit drawer with this cutie!
Calling all active babes! From sweat to swim, sport to sand – this baby does it all. The tie back and adjustable straps can meet you at any activity.
This max coverage, medium support top paired with the retro high wasted bottom makes for a subtle but sexy option. Did someone say 4th of July backyard BBQ?
Versatile One Pieces
I don’t know about y’all, but I am so glad that one pieces are here to stay – not just for the days when I’d rather cover up, but because one piece bathing suits are so versatile! Throw on a skirt, hat and sunnies and *bam* you’re ready for a sunset drink.
Can we say sexy back? I adore all the feminine touches here. The ruffle detail and stretchy fit make this the perfect fun-in-the-sun suit or pair it with jeans shorts to make a cute outfit. Note that sizes can sell out fast with this retailer.
Pink is always a good idea in my book. The adjustable back tie closure and ribbed satin fabric make this both functional and fashionable. Psst…it’s also avail in white.
Celebrate summer in this confetti Sidestroke one-piece from Summersalt. *Bonus* there are matching suits for all the littles in your life!
I can’t help but to wanna sell sea shells by the sea shore when I look at this suit. The pearl and shell accents with the knit fabric have me mind traveling to the south of France right about now. Note that sizes can sell out fast with this retailer.
Every item in my digital cart is white these days. I am *willing* summer to permanently take up residency already. This sexy suit entails a sensual cut-out design making it sexy and honeymoon ready.
Kimonos are the best kept secret. I always pack at least two when I’m traveling somewhere warm. From yoga studio to the beach, these pieces can amplify an outfit or serve as a cover up.
I often get asked by readers, “How do you pack so many outfits in one 50 pound suitcase?” It’s all about the pieces to the puzzle y’all. Skirts, t-shirts, and crops come in handy when creating new outfits. My newest trend is tying up a cute tee over a summer dress. Favorite pieces are below!
Sundresses will always be my go to summer outfit. This bright and light midi dress is perfect for a travel day, but can also be worn on date night. Mini, midi, maxi- I love em all. A round up of my favorite summer dresses are below.
Beach Bag Necessitates
A well packed beach bag is so underrated. First things first, you grab 1. the cute but versatile summer tote 2. the beach cooler with a speaker for a long and and relaxing beach day or 3. the classic and roomy woven beach bag.
Now for the fun stuff – hair accessories, lux (but protective) sun care, sunnies, and beyond. All of my current faves are below!
Last, but certainly not least I have to feature the Guppyfriend Washing Bag. This will protect your favorite delicate garments while reducing the amount of microfibers that may enter rivers and oceans from washing. Plus, it doubles as a pouch to pack all your favorite suits when traveling. Win-win!
