bathing suits beach ready

Eclectic Swimwear Picks For Her

Wednesday, July 22, 2015 Catie Coscino

Now that summer is officially (and finally) in full-swing here in Chicago, I thought I would round up some cute, eclectic bathing suits.  The brands featured here all bring a little something different to the table.  Maybe, you will discover your new favorite!

Pacific & Driftwood Yosemite Top with black mesh

Looking for pieces you can get some extra mileage out of?  Take Pacific & Driftwood's sheer paneled swim tops from day to night.  While being fully functional and safe to wear in the water, they also look amazing when worn as a bralette top casually or for evening.  On a hot summer day, pair the top with high waisted shorts and a kimono for a boho chic look.  At night?  This bralette looks amazing with a blazer.  The best trick when going for a look like this is sticking to only exposing one zone.  So, pairing them with a leather legging provides just enough coverage.

If standing out is your main concern, check out the bright colors and eye-catching prints from Phax Swimwear's current collection.  Unexpected color combinations, pattern mixing and cutouts make these suits perfect for hitting the beach or a pool party.  Another great feature about this brand is that they create different silhouettes in the same patterns and colors, providing a ton of options for consumers.  Pictured below is the Geneva One-Piece swimsuit.  I love the fit of this piece, but, like I said, there are bikinis available as well if a one piece isn't your thing!

Jambo Zuri, the most recent swimwear collection presented by niche brand, Indah Clothing, is inspired by the textures and prints of Zanzibar.  Also of note are the relaxed fabrics of Bali, no doubt influenced by Bali-based designer, Libby DeSantis.  There were so many show stopping pieces in this collection, and few are for the faint of heart.  This line is perfect for the fearless girl looking to turn some heads this summer.

That being said, there are still some really cute pieces for those who aren't quite ready to take the plunge.  Above, a zebra printed one-piece in a shockingly unique silhouette, and below, a fun neon bikini.
