You heard it here first ladies: it’s your Orchid Boutique exclusive on two of the hottest swimwear brands that have made a splash (quite literally) this Swim Week 2015 at the ultra chic Soho Beach Beach House on July 20, 2014. The 2015 collections of Lolli Swim and Acacia Swimwear were unveiled in a show fit for the Miami Beach scene; from the lavish hotel setting, the stylish attendees, and the runway suspended over the pool, we definitely felt the heat at this dual-show! Typical of Lolli Swim, we were anticipating seeing a lot of cheeky bow-back bottoms, candy-colored solids, and feminine silhouettes. For Acacia, we love the young brand’s dedication to simply-sexy cuts, trendy prints, versatile solids, and strappy-caged detailing. But we were blown out of the water when their newest designs were strutted down the runway.

Here is what you ladies can expect from Lolli Swim and Acacia’s 2015 Collection! Enjoy!

1. Lolli – Classic Bows

Let’s face it: when you think of Lolli, you picture their hipster-style bottoms that are accented by flirty bows. The brand hit the mark with this classic style but re-vamped it for the 2015 season by sticking to a color-block motif featuring vibrant neon hues. This accent not only gives the bottom a flirty flare, but it also serves a bigger purpose. Coupled with the center-seam ruching, the bow on the back helps to accentuate your backside! Who doesn’t love a better-looking bum?!

2. Lolli – Soft and Feminine

Our second favorite trend from the Lolli 2015 Swim show came from their use of feminine accents, like bow-top detailing and flutter tops, to give their suits a girly touch. We were also very excited to see some figure-flattering high waisted bikinis come down the runway – one of our personal favorite trends. The brand also made use of gorgeous pastel colors, like soft blues, lilacs, yellows, and pinks, to continue on with the pastel trend from last season.


3. Lolli – Cabana Cuties 

One of the most memorable looks of the 2015 Lolli Swim show came from the brand’s use of bottom-only runway ensembles – the models came on the runway sporting vibrant colored bottoms coupled with fruits instead of bikini tops! Brazilian icon Carmen Miranda would have been a big fan of this outrageous trend!

4. Acacia – Earth Goddesses

For their new collection, Acacia 2015 did not disappoint when they featured tons of soft, earthy, neutral tones and ethnic-inspired prints down the runway. This color scheme goes great will almost all skin tones and definitely highlights your softer side. Many of their swimwear and resort wear pieces that featured the trend were accented by beautiful island-inspired jewelry pieces and gorgeous geometric body tattoos. Better yet, this is the perfect trend to match with the always popular Flash Tattoos!

5. Acacia – Never too many Neutrals

Acacia 2015 hit it big with their plethora of neutral tones that will definitely be one of the upcoming season’s biggest trends. From chocolate browns, soft nudes, and bone-colored ivories, the trendy brand knew how to compliment their sexy silhouettes with simple hues that are perfect for mixing and matching. Make sure to check out these styles in our Acacia Swimwear 2015 collection coming soon to The Orchid Boutique!

Our favorite highlight of the show (other than the obviously gorgeous swimwear) was when the models from the Lolli Swim show decided to jump into the pool straight off the runway. They definitely blew us out of the water!

What trend(s) are you most excited for in these 2015 collections?
