It’s spring break time already and packing essentials include the perfect swimwear. These six stylish options from bikinis to caftans will help make your next vacation to the beach a fashionable one.
Vulcan Top, inamorata ($80). inamorataswim.com
Ruffles and off-the-shoulder styles are still all the rage, and the trendy Inamorata doesn’t disappoint. The Vulcan bikini top comes in black, gold, maroon, and a flashier leopard print. Its off-the-shoulder style makes it sexy enough for a beach date but simple enough to still go for a dip without worrying whether or not it will fall off.
Velvet Hailey Maillot A/B/C Cup, Malia Mills ($380). 7609 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles, 323-879-9815
This shop on Beverly Boulevard is home to gorgeous swimsuits in lots of bright colors. Their tops and bottoms are perfect for mixing and matching depending on cut and style. There are unique choices, like a royal blue velvet one-piece or a three-quarter sleeved tank suit. Newlyweds can even have the option to personalize their bikini bottoms to say things like “Just married” or “Mrs. Jones.” Best of all, Malia Mill’s website is full of models of all ages, shapes and sizes—plus size, gray haired, with no airbrushing.
Full-Cup Triangle Bikini Top and Thin Bikini Briefs, Eres (approximately $505). 9566 Dayton Way, Beverly Hills, 310-246-1008
In 1968, Iréne Leroux broke tradition of summer-only swim collections and offered choices all year ‘round. The French designer ended up positioning Eres as a fashion label, creating swimwear that fit like a second skin. The beautiful designer suits by Eres are perfect for lounging poolside with a drink in hand and a floppy hat on your head. Eres’ tank suits are a standout. The deep V-necks are show-stoppers, as are their halter styles and one-shoulders with gorgeous embellishments. Beach cover-ups are classy and sophisticated too, in pretty fuchsias and elegant yellows.
Cayo Bikini Bottom, Reformation ($68). 8000 Melrose Ave., Los Angeles, 855-756-0560
Reformation’s motto is “high standards, low maintenance.” Their smart, simple and affordable swimsuits are perfect for a lazy day by the pool or in the sand. The little details make Reformation’s suits a great casual and fun choice—there are polka dots on a high-waisted navy bikini and a little red bow on a cutout one piece. Reformation sources beautiful, sustainable fabrics. Over half of their styles are made with materials like Tencel, Viscose and recycled materials.
Tresor Istante Bikini Top, Versace ($375). 8500 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles
With the success of American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace, it’s hard not to peek at the fashion house’s summer offerings. The vibrant “Trésor Istante Bikini Top” is a spectacular starfish and gold print with just a bit of sparkle. There’s also a super sweet butterfly print one-piece and a sleeker black tank suit.
Calypso One Shoulder Swimsuit, Zeus + Dione (approximately $234). zeusndione.com
The sophisticated Zeus + Dione is selling a fierce tank suit in black and white with slight gold detailing. A practical one-shouldered bikini comes in contrasting colors including royal blue and black. Zeus + Dione get their name from the parents of the Greek goddess of love. Classical notions of style and design mark the simple beauty of the boutique.
