Mer-babes rejoice; it’s homecoming season! Humans might call it ‘summer’, but for those of us convinced our fins were stolen at birth, ‘tis the season to embrace our natural habitat... the beach, obvs! Our beauteous planet’s sandy shores are beckoning so we gots ta get ready. Feel like you’re in the deep end when it comes to beachwear buys? Don’t drown in options; get these 5 seaside staples on your shoreline shopping list.
Seaside sirens, meet coastline-casj; smart-casual's beach-ready cousin. Wear the sassiest swimsuit you can find (aka: our hot pink one-shoulder beaut) with your fave denim cut-offs, to nail the look. This super-simple sartorial hack will take you from villa-vibing to beach-chilling in approx. 3.2 seconds flat.*
*Subject to villa location, natch.
Swimming women and tanning temptresses LOVE a bikini (we’d prefer shells, but needs must...) Hand luggage only? A teeny two-piece will slip into your carry-on AND dries quicker than unicorn tears. Win-win, babes!
For SS17 the tide has turned and washed the classic one-piece ashore... and we're all about sweeping up that surf. The new way to wear the all-in-one? Slogan-heavy, bold, and bright. From tongue-in-cheek typographies, to vacay shout-outs, get a wordy one-piece on your list, asap!
In a society that says mermaids are ‘mythical’ (*sigh* we have feelings, too), it’s no shock that swimwear isn’t always welcome either. We merpeople are peaceful folk, so we’ll oblige by covering up when appropes… but only if it’s in this totes adorbs, embroidered kaftan. Cool? K, thanks, bye.
