My summer is looking a bit different this year: I don't have any international getaways planned, all of my group trips are on hiatus, and now my patio has become my source of capturing that vacation feeling. As I sit on my outdoor chairs and sip on a homemade (and poorly mixed) cocktail, in my mind it's an Aperol Spritz and I'm aboard a yacht along the pastel shores of the Amalfi Coast. It's a bit of a stretch, and a long way from anywhere in Italy, but what's been helping me at least transport there mentally, is wearing a chic designer bikini.
As much as I love a good bargain, even I succumb to the beauty of a designer swimsuit. From the luxurious-looking fabrics to the one-of-a-kind details, it's really hard to pass up a fancy bikini when the design is right. Right now, I've been loving brands like Mara Hoffman and Oseree who really bring it with their prints and fabric choices. Even if I don't make it to the beach, my swimsuit will surely spark some joy. Below, I'm presenting 25 bikinis that really bring it with the luxury vibes. You may not own a yacht just yet, but wearing one of these, you'll certainly feel like you do. Keep scrolling to check them all out.
