Summer style has been taken to the next level as brands reinvent our favourite summer essentials - swimsuits, sunglasses, and sun-hats, with inspiration from the past. It’s all about slipping on your swimsuit and favourite sunnies to head to the beach with your girlfriends for a day or even weekend of relaxation and girl talk. As we grow older, covering up seems to sound more appealing and while We Are Handsome is producing swimwear with lions, tigers, bears and more – it’s hard not to want to throw on a one piece and wear it with confidence and ease. The Australian brand makes one-piece suits so essential; girls are skipping the beach and wearing them with trousers, skirts and their favourite shorts for a retro, modern-day twist.
With girls wanting to transform their look to become reminiscent of another time, sunglasses have quickly been changing shape to steer us in a direction leading straight back to the 1960’s and 70’s where circular sunnies were all the rage. Illesteva is just one brand doing it right. Using a myriad of materials to create modernized twists on these retro frames, the brand introduces quirkier sunglasses as the seasons move forward.
Topping off this retro-modern-day mix of poolside style is the sun hat. Coming in all shapes and sizes, the go to hat ranges from the fedora to the “floppy” hat. A favourite among the it-crowd is Brooklyn based designer, Tracy Watts. Known for making classics with a twist, Tracy Watts hats, polish off a summer girl’s look with effortless ease.
