The Time Has Come To Think Out Of The Swimwear Box

It's time to think out of the swimwear box. Fortunately, the latest styles and multiple options support that pursuit... swimmingly. One-piece bathing suits with cut outs and bikini tops that mimic the fuller coverage of crop tops are amongst the most versatile, and are ideal for pairing with items you'll find in your closet.  The COVID-19 pandemic is forcing us to switch gears this summer. Maybe your vacation has been postponed. Perhaps you find yourself with limited opportunities for beach time. It's time to take waterfront walks, prepare picnics in the park, and take advantage of the terrace. Given the new reality, make your suit a true part of your summer wardrobe. Pair a zip front, high neck one-piece with a pair of palazzo pants. Team a cargo-pocketed skirt with a decorative, ruffle-strap bikini. Whether water is near or your rooftop beckons,  redefine and reimagine what it means to spend time in the sun--- with a sophisticated look for your staycation.-Tamara Rappa

Story + Rain cover model Lauren Layne's collection Lauren Layne Swim, is a favorite of ours for its beach-to-bar sensibility. The collection is 1980's-inspired, and its fashion-forward, fresh take on swimwear makes for a beautiful pairing with wardrobe staples. Lauren's intimate knowledge of fit and construction makes owning pieces from her collection next-level necessary.
