Swimwear Favorites for Summer

Ladies and gentlemen! Now that the Seattle sunshine has decided to appear here and there, we think it’s time to start preparing for summer. To us this means one thing: swimwear shopping at Pacific Place!

Here are some of our favorite swimsuits and accessories to help you to embrace the new season.

For the Ladies:

1. Two-Piece Swimsuits

We’re pretty sure every woman on the face of the planet has had a love/hate relationship with the bikini. Our advice? Pick a swimsuit that is so unbelievably cute you can’t help but love how you look in it.

Victoria’s Secret has a nearly endless selection of two-pieces to choose from. Mix and match? Pick a set? Whatever you like!

No one said more skin is more fashionable. There is absolutely no shame in preferring a more conservative look at the pool. We hear one-piece swimsuits are making a comeback, and we have some adorable one-piece options for you!Soma Intimates

In addition to Victoria’s Secret’s amazing selection, Soma Intimates has a trendy collection of one-piece suits for those looking for a more sophisticated beach look.

3.  Sunglasses

Sunny days always bring out Seattle’s finest, as everyone is always trying to show off their hard-earned beach bodies. Enjoy the view through a pair of trendy and effective sunglasses from Solstice Sunglasses Boutique. They have a pair of shades for every face type, every outfit, every occasion, and are an absolute must have swim accessory this summer!

Swimwear fashion doesn’t stop with swimsuits. A true summertime fashionista needs to be decked out from head to toe in gorgeous attire in order to fully embrace the sun’s awakening. You know what that means?

Shoes. And we mean cute ones. Really cute ones. Flip flops, sandals, wedges: ‘tis the season to show off the perfect pedicure through a pair of summer’s finest.

ExpressExpress has a fantastic selection of shoes that are a fun, durable, and completely affordable addition to any poolside ensemble.

 5. Cover-ups

Last, but certainly not least, you’re going to need a classy cover-up to complete your perfect swim ready outfit. We can’t have you walking around in nothing but your bathing suit all day. A cover-up has all the perks of flaunting your summer curves, but is still socially acceptable.

J. Crew is our cover-up hot spot destination. They have a versatile selection of beach cover-ups that can transform even the most scantily clad beachwear into a completely public presentable outfit.J. CrewOur favorite? We love the Embroidered Rope Tunic. It’s intricate design and flirty front opening combine to make the cover-up an adorable beach slip-on or even a casual summer dress. The options are endless.

For the Gentlemen:

Ladies aren’t the only ones who can get creative and express their personal style with unique swimwear. In the last few years, men’s swimwear has become a fashion statement all on its own.

Take these wildly colorful board shorts from J. Crew for example.J. CrewWith an assortment of bold pastel colors and patterns, and available 5”, 7” and 9” lengths, there is bound to be a pair of classic board shorts to fit every guy’s poolside style. We’re partial to the 7” board shorts with the navy blue anchor pattern, but we always love to mix it up!

If you’re looking to really experiment with some unique patterns, head on over to Barneys New York on Levels one and two.

Barneys New YorkBarneys New York is known for their classic, sharp style and these unique patterned swim trunks are no exception. We can’t get enough of the vibrant colors and elastic waistband look!

If you’re looking for something a little more rugged and functional we recommend the First Ascent Send shorts from Eddie Bauer.

Eddie Bauer The name of the game with the Send shorts is versatility. Made with a special spandex/polyester blend, these useful shorts air dry quickly and avoid chlorine damage. They’re the perfect companion for a dip in a lake while hiking or a summer dunk in the Puget Sound (if you can brave the cold water)!

So what are you waiting for? It’s Seattle for crying out loud. Cherish the sun while you can, because before you know it, the only water we’ll be enjoying will be pouring from the sky.
