We have to admit: As soon as the heat starts rising, our minds practically fly away to breezy shorelines and the cold cocktails by the beach. We're so ready to conquer the seas! But besides our travel buddies, the water sports activities, and the hours of basking under the glory of the sun, what's a getaway by the ocean without the ultimate collection of summer OOTDs?
So we say, pack your own supply of 'cool' and head over to your choice of summer paradise with these swimsuit brands.
A cross between classy and sultry, this pin-up inspired bikini is just one of many choices from COS that will surely unleash the inner bombshell in you. Minimalist and chic, their Summer 2017 collection is all about keeping it light and romantic, without being cheesy or tacky.
Uniqlo x Princesse Tam.Tam
Combining the Parisian's love for romance and the Japanese's bold creativity, this collaboration between Uniqlo and Princesse Tam.Tam is a culmination of modesty and adventure, as expressed in the collection's various cuts, colours, and prints inspired by the tropics.
Lisa Marie Fernandez
'Modernised vintage' may sound paradoxical, but Liza Marie Fernandez 2017 summer collection makes it work by balancing today's obsession with minimalist prints and combining it with accentuated cuts and patterns that are very pin-up-like.
