It’s hot. Time to hit the beach, jump in the lake, grab your surfboard and float in a pool. You’re going to need swimwear that’s ethically made, vegan, sustainable, and fabulous, of course. I can help.
For the surfer babes and lovers of all things retro
If you’re into water sports, or just want more coverage, these California made suits are for you. I bought a swimsuit from them last summer, so I can tell you that the quality is great. It still looks brand new (and super cute). Their pieces have a chic retro vibe without looking cheap or costumey. The Seea strikes the perfect balance of functionality and style. Because they have one pieces, bikinis, surfsuits and rashguards, a average price is difficult to pinpoint, but it will be upwards of $120. They even have an adorable children’s range (6 months to 14).
When two is plenty.
This sustainable and ethical fashion brand has just two swimsuits, but they’re both perfectly cut and look effortlessly luxurious. A color blocked triangle bikini for $105, or a reversible one piece with a low back for $125? Each comes in two colors and is 100% recycled. Take your pick.
Stone Fox Swim
Cheeky bikinis, quite literally.
This is for the ladies who aren’t afraid to show a little (or a lot) of skin. Stone Fox Swim is the place to go for the classic triangle bikini and trendy cuts that are all made in downtown LA. Separates are about $90 each. The Summer 2017 collection features a variety of floral prints and strappy options.
Clean lines, bold colors.
Gnash Swim is made ethically in Australia from sustainable materials. They offer a small selection of swimsuits that are simple, but well cut. I know muted neons doesn’t make sense, but they look like once bright colors, now little washed out. A two piece is $90 (tops and bottoms sold separately) and a one piece is $85. When it comes to ethical swimwear, these are priced on the lower end.
Cute… and by the way, on sale!
Yes, most swimwear is currently 20-35% off, but that’s not the only reason to buy. These suits are sewn in New York City and made of 78% recycled nylon. They’re also a completely vegan brand down to the makeup used on models. Full retail prices range $72-178. Snag them while you can.
Because I don’t own swimwear from all the brands, of course I had to use their images! I hope you enjoyed my collages and little touches though. I was inspired by the Stone Fox Swim image above and thought it would make this post a little more fun.
Long live summer.
