These Swimsuits Were Made For Instagram
They're functional too, but you know, Instagram priorities. One pieces, two pieces, and some that look more like going-out wear than swimwear – there's no way to choose.| July 24, 2017
First Maldives, then Positano and now Capri – it seems like we’re on a new beach every month. (No complaints there, though.) We’re here in sunny, beautiful Capri for work, but the island is meant to be enjoyed, and that we did. Jumping off boats, getting some Vitamin D among that famous stretch of orange and blue sun chairs, feasting on as much pasta and burrata we can get our hands on and yes, a dip into that deep, blue ocean.
With every beach work-vacay comes the need for to fill out our swimwear shelf. We’ll be honest – it’s been getting a little dusty in there. Living on an actual island – i.e. Singapore – can take the fun out of island living. It takes a beach somewhere else to remind us that cobwebs are forming among our neglected swimsuits.
It also helps that the current bevy of swimsuits we’re seeing are anything but basic. None of those triangle bikinis and basic bandeaus, thank you very much. Rope belts, off-the-shoulder, one-shoulder, puff sleeves, turtlenecks and knitted – the new wave of swimsuits and bikinis look more like going-out wear. Even those in the classic 90s-style silhouette look new with their bold stripes and low-backs.
Don’t have a beach vacation planned? That’s fine, keep it for the next one. Shop the swimwear we have our eyes on below, and yes, they’re all 100% Instaworthy. We checked.
