Swimwear Shopping Guide
With the summer season winding down (we’re sobbing over here), there’s no need to shove your swimwear in the back of the bottom drawer of your dresser. Hermoza doesn’t want you suffering the slings of a bad break up with your suit. Why not carry it into your Fall wardrobe with a chic confidence that turns heads? Read on to see what our Hermozas have been dreaming up on social media to make the super fashion-forward movement towards making their swim and resort wear perennial faves.
According to Marie Claire, the bodysuit trend isn’t fading any time soon. Not limited to functioning as shapewear, the bodysuit is a polished take on tailored fashion. When doubling as a bodysuit, your one-piece swimsuit can offer you a slimming and smoothing base layer that is the perfect complement under a pair of jeans, a gorgeous skirt, a pair of linen trousers or palazzo pants, you name it! Our breathtaking Hermoza, @stylebyabena has us reeling with the possibilities in one of her summertime posts. The best part?? Her comments section was hit with @audgemeister asking, “Is that a bathing suit or bodysuit? Tres chic!” We know our Hermozas have hit a trend of their own when their bold, vibrant fashion dos get people talking.
Fabulous Fits Forever
As a discerning Hermoza, you selected your suit based on fit and style, so why scrap it the minute the weather dips? Attractive coverage is not a fair-weather consideration, so take the shapewear in your swimwear out on the town to make a unique statement. @mintandthrift did just that with our Grace tankini top as she took on the city in style. Consider following suit by using your tankini tops as a delightful alternative to camis and tanks that aren’t quick-drying or UPF protective. The last thing you should be thinking about when touring your favorite digs is whether your OOTD has you covered.
Where You Headed?
After breezing through your current collection, consider your needs first. What pieces have remained in your closet as your tried and true ride-or-dies? Timeless elegance should feel effortless, so if you are struggling to make a piece work and it just isn’t happening, scrap it and find something new to replace it. To minimize the starting from scratch anxiety, take a risk and review your swim and resort wear pieces to see how they might double well for an occasion other than events found poolside. With a modest base layer, our stunning Ana long romper cover-up could have you turning heads at an evening soiree with a large pair of statement earrings and a set of multi-layered bangles. Paired with a spectacular set of heels or flats, this piece is perfect for wherever the autumn, winter, or spring might take you.
Recover Well With Bold Prints
No one is ever truly prepared for what a summer of swimming and sun does to our hair. The best way to ward it off is to wash it well and style it less often. Go au naturel and give your locks a break by arranging it up with a short sarong cover up used as a head wrap. @findingphilothea gave her beachy waves a break by tucking them into our exclusive Sword Lilly print. Her playful use of the graphic palette is exactly what her adorable red get up needed for an extra pop of fun. We are living for her classic, clean, polished aesthetic that gives off all the vibes of our fave Hermoza muses. Audrey herself would have been proud to see such ingenuity!
‘Cause We’re All About A Good Highlight
Living in your swimwear year-round is ultra-possible when it is meticulously crafted to enhance (not bare) all that you’re mama gave you. @laur_diamantas featured our showstopping Clare one-piece in her post at the PGA National Resort & Spa. This Hermoza knows how to highlight her figure with a vintage-inspired, breath-taking off the shoulders fit. Lauren looks graceful and positively radiant without being provocative as she celebrates her femininity (and motherhood) with super cute heart-shaped sunnies. We couldn’t ask for a better post to show our Hermozas how it’s done.
Shopping for swim and resort wear is more than selecting a suit or cover up for summertime. Be inventive. Think out of the box. Invest in pieces that take you places you’ve always wanted to go. Get comfortable in the skin you are in by trying different combinations that enhance your inherent beauty. Splurge on something that makes your chic style an effortless experience from January to December.
