There are a couple of things that are must-haves when you go to the beach. Even though with the recent summer heat I would highly recommend an umbrella and some SPF 30, at the top of my ‘fun’ beach must-haves are some of the newest styles of the latest trends. Our most popular trend to date has to be all of our fringe swimsuits. From halter tops to monokinis, this style has been flying off of our metaphorical shelves since its debut with The Orchid in October. Recently, Despi Swimwear came out with their own line of fringe to keep the coveted bohemian style alive. To continue the spirit of new styles, we also recently added some of Florabella’s classic line of wide and small brim beach hats. These hats are designed for the ultimate fashionista, as many of them seem perfect for your long-awaited debut at the Kentucky Derby. Now that these styles have arrived, what better way to celebrate them than to pair them up in a chic way!

Let’s start with Macrame Ciel Halter Bikini, where the fringe hangs from the halter top in one of the newest ways I’ve seen. I think it would look gorgeous with Florabella’s Simone Hat. Between the swimsuits fringe and the hat’s suede ribbon blowing in the wind, everyone will wonder where you have been shopping.

Another great swimsuit style that recently graced our warehouse is the Macrame Black Brazilian Bikini, a fringe bandeau top that is very similar to Rihanna’s swimsuit from her tropical vacation. I love the Jade Hat with this two piece. It’s white shade and mother of pearl trim is the perfect contrast to the black swimsuit. You will be the coolest lady on the sand with this combination.

My last Despi fringe pick is the Macrame Citrus Brazilian Bikini, a suit that hits the neon and fringe trend on the mark. The Marie Wide Hat was made for this bikini, as it’s natural color doesn’t take away from the swimsuit’s pop of color, but the metallic ribbon subtly continues the ‘pop’ theme. Embrace the citrus tone with an apple martini while you’re relaxing on your Caribbean vacation.
