If you've been perusing our swim selections, then you already know surf-tastic suits and cutout varieties are sure to make a summery statement. However, if you're looking to channel your inner girlie girl, we've got the ruffled, printed, and flirtatiously feminine fits you're seeking. These are playful, curve-hugging, and just a little coquettish fun for soaking up the sun and lounging in the sand. Take a peek and get girlie!
Any way you dice it, cutout swimwear is hot. Shredded, peek-a-boo, or full-blown skin-revealing styles in one or two pieces. This kind of suiting goes beyond tanning 101 — way more fashion than sunning function. They're bold, attention-grabbing, and oh so much fun. Throw one on and get beachy or post up poolside and make a statement. Click through for 15 crave-worthy cutouts.
After checking out its yummy resort presentation in NYC, I've been smitten with all things Zimmermann. Yes, the live show was amazing, but there's something about this look book that pulls me in even deeper. The dank, gritty lighting and hotel backdrop reminds me of humid Summer nights in Costa Rica and the swimwear is beyond amazing. I don't know any girl who could deny the brand's sexy cuts and tropical prints. I'm particularly taken with this batik-print bikini top — the charms are irresistibly fresh. Keep clicking for more scintillating swimwear from Zimmermann!
Look what's come from down under? I know it's a little late in the summer to be talking about bathing suits, but I've just discovered Australia's newest brand to hit the U.S. and I'd never dream of holding out on you guys. So even if you are set for this summer, it's never too early to stock up for next season. Or...if you really can't wait a whole year, you can always travel to Australia in the winter since it's summertime there.
Zimmermann Swimwear and their newest line Shine by Zimmermann is fashion forward, high quality, unique and they actually cover your booty. Reason being, you are paying (a lot) for every square inch of fabric. But it's worth every penny to know that your humps are neatly tucked away. After trying on several suits I felt so confident that I chose a leopard print. ROAR!
The suits are made in the same fabrics so that you can mix and match different top and bottom style combinations for your body type. They also have a super chic line of one pieces. Here are some pictures from this season's line.
