Shop 12 Stylish Beach Chairs and Bikinis to Go With Them – Vogue

A beach chair is just like any other beach day necessity—towel, sunglasses, sun hat. When getting dressed for a day by the shore, you’ve likely considered coordinating all your beach accoutrement, so why not take the ultimate step up in sunbathing style and match your beach chair with your bikini? Because let’s face it, if you’re going to haul a pool lounger or lawn chaise with you to the beach or park, you might as well make a fashionable statement.

And good to know that there are a lot of beach chairs to choose from (as there are bikinis!)—like uncomplicated folding chairs in easy stripes and large luxe chaises in a retro color palette. There are also Slim Aarons-worthy wooden frame cabana chairs and well-shaded club chairs complete with scalloped canopies. All of which can be complemented with an equally stylish swimsuit. Might we recommend Jade’s blush halterneck bikini while reclining in Sunnylife’s lightweight pink chair? Or maybe you’d prefer to unwind in the sand with Land and Sea’s rattan beach chair while sporting Maiyo’s neutral crochet two-piece? read more

Kylie Jenner’s New Bikini Is Her Most Daring Yet – Teen Vogue

Never one to shy away from a bikini moment, Kylie Jenner once again pulled out all the stops rocking the Pink Fawning & Forward Bikini by Isa Boulder for what might just be her most daring vacation look to date – and that’s saying a lot.

Posted on May 16, in her snaps, we can see Kylie rocking the bikini featuring ruched demi cups, adjustable spaghetti straps, and logo-engraved silver-tone hardware. 

The high-cut, mid-rise bottoms provide the smallest bit of coverage in the front but it’s the back that is seriously showstopping — meaning skinny, strappy, and a full-on thong. (Kylie did not give us a full 360 of the piece but she did post a side shot to her Instagram stories.) read more

Support and fit technology are essential for the category, says Grede. “Swimwear is not an easy space to be in,” she says. “I think it takes a lot of work. And ultimately what we built is a very kind of SKU-heavy range, in order to give customers choice. That’s really what you have to do. We don’t take it for granted that the style or size she needs on the top, she also needs on the bottom.”

Customers seek sustainable fabrics and ethical supply chains

Alongside fit innovation, newly launched swim lines are using recycled fabrics. This is a trend reflected across the category, according to Kayla Marci, retail analyst at Edited. read more

My Body Got Me Through the Pandemic. It Doesn’t Need to Be Bikini Ready – Vogue

TCDSHRI EC020 My Body Got Me Through the Pandemic It Doesn t Need to Be Bikini Ready 8211 Vogue

If I try really hard, I can just barely remember the days when summer meant abundance: fresh peaches dripping with juice, lobster rolls in warm, buttery soft buns, Mister Softee cones melting in the heat during long, lazy afternoons spent sunbathing on stoops around New York City. As I got older, though, I learned to associate summer with the bodily asceticism so common to teenage girls, pinching the excess skin of my thighs and gnawing on ice while everyone else ate Popsicles, hoping that one fewer serving of dessert or one more turn on the elliptical would make me into the kind of string-bikini-clad beach babe that was everyone’s June-through-August fantasy. read more

How Esha Lal is seeding sustainability in swimwear – Vogue India

Now she is extending her green thumb to her garment labels, which are made from plantable seed paper and will read, “This garment has been made with an environmentally conscious approach. Thank you for considering our environment when your purchase an Esha Lal product”. Swimwear as a category is looking more and more at becoming more environmentally friendly. Even Nike has just announced the launch of their first sustainable swim line. Since being stretchy and dry happy is core to swim clothing, these have traditionally be made out of fabrics with a high plastic content such as nylon and polyester, which actually seems to go against swimwear’s relationship with the ocean. Current consumption habits of plastic are predicted to outweigh all of the ocean’s fish by 2050, drowning out one of our most important mindfully many.  read more

Every summer, a breakout swimsuit emerges. Last year, it was all about the French cut style of the ’80s, a torso-bearing shape as worn by Bella Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski. This summer, sunning at the beach may look a little different, but that hasn’t stopped people from catching some rays in their backyard—meaning swimwear moments are continuing to pop up. And Dua Lipa’s latest bikini is certainly something to behold. The singer just uploaded an Instagram photo showing off an entirely unexpected bikini: a Care Bears-themed bikini. A Care Bears-themed crocheted bikini. Talk about taking nostalgia and kitsch to a new level. read more

Regarding the bathing suit, nary a navel was on display before the 1960s. In our own magazine’s documentation of the swimsuit, the 1940s brought us colorful images of mostly covered-up young ladies by the sea. Photos taken by Horst P. Horst and Toni Frissell showcase waist-hugging one-pieces with brief-cut bottoms. A decade later, bathing beauties reached impossible heights of elegance with swimwear almost too pretty to swim in. Some suits from the ’50s contained as much boning as a Dior gown, and a day by the pool required a coordinating sarong, hat, and pair of sunglasses. read more

Just like the rest of our wardrobe, swimwear trends also come and go. There’s no shortage of embellished swimsuits that make for some interesting tan-lines. Instead, consider taking the minimalist swimwear approach when it comes to the summer essential. As each summer returns, it’s likely you’ll be drawn to your more timeless and minimal swim over the statement styles that might feel outdated or too overtly trendy. When shopping for any wardrobe essential (swimsuits included!), it’s important to find one you’ll love as much this season as you will for seasons to come. read more
