This also means we’re more than excited to see what our favorite designers have in store for the week, with line-up bigwigs Wildfox, Mara Hoffman, Clover Canyon and the many other new “kids on the dock,” coming out to showcase their 2015 lines. Plus,with all the parties and satellite events popping up, the street swimwear scene here will be unprecedented, from a Ford Models yacht pamper party to rooftop pool soirees at the Soho House hosted by the likes of Guess, RVCA, and others.
So whether you’re hitting up the Miami party scene, scoping out this season’s runway offerings or just joining your friends for a dip at the local watering hole, we have an excess amount of swim season inspiration for you. This summer’s “fiercer version of the 90s” trends pack both attitude and personality, including the wild bunch (low-cut one-pieces in animal or jungle print, bold die-cuts and loud metallics), the stylishly sporty (surf shirts and rash guards, designed with neoprene, mesh and elegance) and the edgy classics (minimalist strapless tops with high-waisted bottoms, paired with nautical elements and flowy cover-ups). It’s amazing how such little fabric can make such a strong statement – so go ahead, get inspired, and see for yourself which ones of our favorite hottest-days-of-summer looks speak to you the most!
