Simple swimwear teamed with fun accessories is the perfect way to get more mileage out of beachwear
Whatever your plans are for summer, no doubt you’ll be spending some time in the water, whether it’s at the beach or by the pool. Some of our favorite swimwear brands have focused on sporty swimsuits in bold colours — sunny yellow the winner this season, having made an impact already in current ready-to-wear collections. Thinking beyond daytime events and into sundown is key — simple wrap skirts and fun earrings are examples of transitioning quick-drying swimwear into something more festive when the occasion calls for something more appropriate without straying too far from the water. For some international inspiration, Simon Porte’s distillation of idyllic carefree days in the South of France has inspired several other designers too, his label Jacquemus setting the agenda for glamorous resort wear (particularly his spring 2018 collection). What sets him apart from younger brands also trying to capture that same take on beachwear is his playful sense of humour — polka dot prints, oversized straw hats and artful jewellery belie a lighthearted joie de vivre that everyone should enjoy on sunny summer days.
