After months of being cooped up indoors and restricting our movements to parks, we’re excited to kick off a hot girl summer thanks to the advent of Phase Two. Although travel is restricted, we’re thankful to have our swimming pools and beaches have reopen.
Since it’s swimsuit season all year round, here are our top picks:
Designed by Chantel Davis, a former model, this bustier meets corset one piece is bound to turn up the heat. Made for curvier figures, the ruffle complements the bust while the low scoop back aims to give the booty a pop. Featuring a lace up detail at the torso, it cinches your waist to make you look extra snatched at the poolside. Made out of a super duper soft fabric from Spain, this one piece is bound to be an investment.
Designed by blogger-turned-designer Shea Marie, this swimsuit is bound to break the algorithm. Minimal, sleek and chic, flirty cutouts are balanced out by an oversized bow that pays a tribute to the playful fashions of the ‘80s. Although it’s made to slay the sun beds, you can easily style it with jeans for GNO or vinyl pants for a red hot date night with your man. Trust us, you can never say no to a Pucci-esque print. (P.S. Proceeds go to Black Lives Matter, Campaign Zero and Minnesota Freedom Fund.)
Ride the waves in style with this super duper chic high leg cutout wetsuit. Designed by Gigi Caruso, a devoted watersports aficionado and equestrian, this one piece surf suit is perfect for all types of water sports thanks to its extra durable, yet silky scuba material.
Your favourite bikini set from childhood gets an adult treatment with Ookioh’s sporty and spicy bikini set. Designed to flatter the bust with its square neckline and tie back silhouette, the Tulum top provides maximum coverage and lift. On the other hand, the lace-up Amalfi bottoms are hip-hugging and low rise to give you the tan you need.
Jessie Andrews, the designer of Bagatiba, is also the head boss behind Basic Swim. Minimalistic, yet timeless, the simplicity of the La Premiere string bikini has been a hit among celebrity fans like Kaia Gerber and Kylie Jenner. Sweet for the summer, lighten up your wardrobe with this on-trend cheeky peach hue.
More modest than a bikini, the tankini is still one of summer’s go-to styles. Made with Envy Push Up technology, the pads give your bust extra boost while retaining less than one tablespoon of water. Featuring flirty cutouts at the sides, it gives the tankini top an extra level of sexiness that can still hide your food baby alongside matching high-waisted bottoms.
Sustainable and sexy, UBU Swimwear is one of the hottest local brands to watch for. Made for the inner Gemini in you, you can either channel your inner feisty, but demure Posh Spice in all black or turn up the heat a la Pamela in Baywatch red.
Tumblr aesthetics get a dose of retro ‘90s cool with a high cut leg and smiley face print inside the hibiscus flower. This funky one piece is a must have as if it’s a Hawaiian shirt, but poolside-friendly. Featuring adjustable straps, you can wear it as a high or low necked swimsuit. Style it with a pair of cutoffs or overalls and jelly sandals.
At a steal, this super classy swimsuit is meant to be worn more than one way. For an on-trend look, you can move the straps over one shoulder. You can also style it like a halter or a plunging deep V for that haute Old Hollywood siren aesthetic. If you wish to take this out to the bar, you can wear it with a pair of high-waisted straight leg jeans and strappy sandals.
