POOLSIDE ATTIRE

We all know that a huge part of summer is swimming – unbearably high summer temperatures and heatwaves lead to the need for pools, beaches, or any form of water are a much- and therefore bathing suits are a must have in the summertime. We are obsessed with some of this summer’s new bathing suit trends like the one piece and the high waisted two piece - reminiscent of photos we’ve seen of our mother wearing bathing suits when she was on the beach our age. We love seeing when popular trends from decades ago come back in style. 

Decked out in variations of red, in today's post, we show off two of this summer's popular bathing suit trends while hanging out poolside on a beautiful day in the Hamptons :)

SOPHIE'S LOOK:

I love the fact that one pieces are in this summer and that so many different swim brands have done so many fun things with them and have made them in all sorts of styles. I love this beautiful Beach Riot x Revolve 'Marisa' one piece for it's strikingly gorgeous floral print with those stunning red flowers and the deep V plunge style of the suit. To save my feet from the burning pavement when walking around the pool deck, I paired my suit with a pair of my favorite sandals in a brand new color (and texture) that I just got and have been obsessed with! - my criss-cross style 'Thais' denim Ancient Greek Sandals.  Finally, I wore a pair of my favorite hippie looking sunglasses, my Factory wire circle mirror sunglasses - another (sunglasses) trend that has recently come back in style :) - and my go to Anita K gold choker for a finishing touch.

CHARLOTTE'S LOOK:

I went with an adorable red high waisted two piece swimsuit in contrast with Soph's one piece. They ended up pairing great together! I love the girly aspect of my suit and the fact that this trend is back in after having been a very popular trend around Grace Kelly's time when it became in style to wear a bikini. I'm convinced this high waisted bathing suit will look great on everyone and is just a super classy look from days gone by. For my bikini I went with The St. Lucia For Love & Lemons Bikini Top and High Waisted Bikini Bottoms. I Knew I had to have this suit when I saw it... obsessed with everything about it. The burnt orange coloring makes it a perfect end of summer suit. Body chains are an absolute must for summer bikini looks because they have a fantastic way of dressing up any suit. For my body chain I wore an Arme De L'Amour Gold Plated Body Chain. And for shoes I went for my Ancient Greek Slides which I have thrown on almost everyday this summer. If your looking for the perfect easy going sandal this is the one you should buy!

A POOL PARTY IS A COOL PARTY 8-)

 
 

We wouldn't be giving the summer season full justice without dedicating a post solely to bathing suits, one of summer's key trends. Even though the summer is slowly dwindling down, there are still a few crucial weeks (and weekends) left of Summer 2016 filled with lots of opportunities to rock the hottest bathing suits and poolside trends - especially for Labor Day getaways.
