The 6 Best Beachwear Brands for Your Next Vacation

The 6 Best Beachwear Brands for Your Next Vacation

Is there anything as exciting as packing a suitcase full of gorgeous bikinis and cover ups for a beach vacation? You’ve picked out the perfect outfits to match your destination, and start to day dream about the perfect, sun-soaked days you’re about to have, and have had, with each and every swimsuit, cover up and sarong you pack.

There’s the sundress I sipped rosé in at a beach club in St Tropez. The bikini I rocked on a pirate ship at Willy T’s in the BVI’s. The tropical dress I wore to the best dinner of my life in Maui. The swimsuit I swam with turtles in in the Gilis.  The sarong I had wrapped around me at a swing-up bar in Mexico.  The bikini that I paired oh-so-fashionably with tennis shoes to hike the five seaside mountains of Cinque Terre. The dress that got completely drenched by a wave at a beach party in Bali.

Each piece of beachwear brings amazing memories with it. They’ve been worn on some of the very best days of my life, in the very best places. And I don’t know about you all, but I haven’t had that many epic days in my Uggs and North Face.

So, put your winter coats away and start making room in that bikini drawer.

Here are my top six beachwear brands for 2017 to ensure you have something perfect (and let’s be honest, Instagrammable) to wear every day on vacay. 

1. Seafolly Australia

The iconic Australian swimwear brand’s 2017 collection is everything you want in a beach vacation wardrobe: effortlessly chic.

If Seafolly were a destination, it would be St. Barts. Yachty and nauti.

2. Kenny Flowers

Kenny Flowers is best known for their tropical twist on the men’s Hawaiian shirt, but I’m all about their women’s line of Kini Flowers sarongs. If you’re feelin’ generous, grab your guy a shirt while you’re at it, so you can guarantee he’ll be looking as good as you in that perfect coupley beach instagram you’re already planning. #blessed

If Kenny Flowers were a destination, it would be Mexico. Tropical, casual, and a ton of fun.

3. Rococo Sand

This beautiful brand is all about the details. Incredible prints, exquisite embroidery and hand-crafted beading on precious fabrics. Rococo Sand is a resortwear showstopper.

If Rococo Sand were a destination, it would be Zanzibar. Exotic & wild meets resort-chic.

4. Show Me Your Mumu

Show Me Your Mumu has long been my go-to for vacation wear. Started by two California girls, Show Me Your Mumu  have a little bit of everything, from beautiful bright prints to casual everyday basics.

If Show Me Your Mumu were a destination, it would be Colombia. Vibrant, colorful and free-spirited.

5. 6ShoreRoad by Pooja

I discovered this brand last year when I became obsessed with their cabana one-piece. The whole Spring 2017 collection is to-die-for, with tons of pretty pastels and fun tropical prints.

If 6ShoreRoad were a destination, it would be the French Riviera. Classy, beachy, and sophisticated.

Money can’t buy happiness… but it can buy bikinis, and I’m pretty sure that’s the same thing. After all, you’re gonna need something to wear wherever your spring break travels take you… And if you’re still thinking about where to go to escape winter, check out my guides to Costa Maya, Mexico, The British Virgin Islands, or Cabo San Lucas!
