Crochet bikinis have always been favored by many for its laidback and effortless aesthetic. This season, Claudia Schiffer’s tri-color swimsuit is the one to nab this season.
For a quick cover-up piece as you head for lunch down the beach, a maxi skirt is in order. The side-slit on this Lanvin skirt further glammed up its delicate black design, making it worthy of a late night beach party outing.
Although beachwear often banners casualness and relaxation, a certain dose of glamour can also be refreshing. This Zimmermann swimsuit, for instance, channels utmost elegance courtesy of the rose-gold hardware and draped bandeau front.
