Hit the water in style this summer with a bright collection of must-haves that can take the heat.
SUMMER IS HERE, and you know what that means: Warm-weather fashion is back. What better way to honor the hottest season of the year than with a few new additions to your wardrobe? Whether you’re hitting the coast (roadtrip, anyone?) or lounging by the pool (or lake or river), it only takes a few staples to craft a look that is both fashionable and functional. Start with the perfect bikini or a sassy one-piece in a bright color, then add a variety of versatile options that can take your look from the pool to the party. Our picks: A pair of sack shorts and a beachy tote are perfect for pre-swim socializing; a sundress, sandals and shades get you to lunch in style; and the addition of a few baubles completes your look before postpool cocktails. Isn’t life a beach?
