9 Swimsuits You Need for Hitting This Summer's Hippest Beach Locales
In these halcyon days of social sharing, picking the perfect bathing suit can make or break a beach vacation.
We asked Claire Mazur and Erica Cerulo, the force behind the amazing fashion curation website Of a Kind, to help us choose the most stylish women’s bathing suits for each of this summer’s hottest destinations. These are ladies who know what looks good on women’s bodies.
The good news is you don’t have to spend a million bucks to look like a million bucks.
Destination: Miami, Florida
Go-to Swimwear: What’s more South Beach than a metallic suit? Double-down on the shininess with some gold aviators—and book a room at one of the coolest hostels in the history of hostels, Freehand. (Yes, it has a pool.)
(American Apparel, $22)
Destination: Venice Beach, California
Go-to Swimwear: Something about this Solid & Striped one-piece feels like throwback Venice—but that doesn’t mean you have to hang out at Muscle Beach. Hit up A. Kinney Court for the best sunglasses around, and grab something frosty to drink at Lemonade.
(Solid & Striped, $150)
Destination: Maderas, Nicaragua
Go-to Swimwear: All of the suits in Basta Surf’s line were designed for wave-riding, and this one in particular, with its sandy-hued, pared-down vibe, looks ready to hit the tropical-modern Buena Vista Surf Club. Bonus: The bikini has nautical stripes on the flipside for some fun.
