Premium swimsuits summer trends 2021? Swimwear season is upon us. The suits du jour? Glamorous one-pieces and modest bikinis, both cut to cover up and enhance curves. In the mix are island-inspired options — an asymmetrical two-piece from the New York label Giejo (top, $98; bottom, $88) and a cheap and cheerful Indochine-esque palm print by Joe Fresh ($29), for example — that hit the high and low sides of swim’s price spectrum. Other standout summertime swim trends include plaids (gingham from the Australian swim house Seafolly and madras from Thom Dolan); black-and-whites (stripes from Norma Kamali and botanicals from Tommy Bahama); and florals (primaries from Rebecca Taylor and pastels from American Eagle). T even found the sunglasses that go best with each look. Here comes the sun!
Tired of the same old prints? So was Giejo’s creator, who set about creating separates focused on fashion forward styles. Using vintage and reclaimed materials sourced from New York’s Garment District, you know you’ll be getting something unique. The collection is small and refined and guides you to choose the kind of clashes that work. With their brightly coloured bohemian trims, these bikinis and one pieces are an Instagrammer’s dream. Each piece is handmade and lacks the unsightly and uncomfortable clasps and fastenings that are found on most. With their lollipop brightness and streamline cuts, it’ll be difficult to choose just one. Read additional details at swimsuit.
For a hip hop class, go for slouchy-skinny sweatpants over shorts—trust us, you’ll feel a lot less self-conscious breaking it down if you dress the part. Amp it up with a striped snapback, patterned high-tops, and an oversized tote to make getting to and from class simple and chic. And don’t forget your attitude. Easy layers will have you zen-ready in no time. A flexible bra, short shorts, and a form-fitting tank are staples. When you add accessories like a mat, skid-eliminating towel topper, low-cut socks, and an app of positions, you’ll be prepared for just about any class on the roster.
Dissatisfied with the lackluster swimwear options at her price point, fashion publicist Gabby Sabharwal took the initiative and created her own line of wallet-friendly, chic suits. With six mix-and-match styles, her collection may be small in size, but scores big on the style scale. Where do you see your line going? What’s next? I love one-pieces. There’s something about them that looks so chic. I’m hoping to do something really creative and different with a one-piece as well as a few more transitional cover-ups. I’m also going to experiment with creating my own prints and layering fabrics.
