They call it the “last weekend of summer,” but for a mermaid, Labor Day weekend proves itself to be yet another opportunity to get dolled up in your cutest ‘kini and hang poolside, hit the pool parties or spend your day on the sand with a bikini that deserves a dozen Instastories.
For those of you mermaids getting away to celebrate, we’re here to help you pack and look hot no matter where you’re going.
South Beach Babe
You’re hitting the crystal clear waters of South Beach and spending Sunday lounging poolside at the Raleigh. Your #ootd? The Tribal Taboo Pink Geometric–a perfect match for the Miami heat. Work this suit with some serious solids for a look that’ll take you from water play to Kiki on the River for happy hour, easy. Pair this pretty pink suit with basics like high-waisted LPA palazzo pants or a basic white button down and let the balconette bikini top play a game of peek-a-boo. Fill your suitcase with colorful accessories like these Vanessa Mooney knotted tassels and Clare V.’s Petite Alice. Hashtag obsessed.
Mermaid in the Mountains
Lake life–it’s where the days are simple, the air is fresh and the look is still hot. You never know who’s going to take your pic, right?! Along with your fave high-waisted denim cut offs, a must-have fedora like the Carnaby Fedora, bring the Strappy Starlet Jungle Bikini along. The print is all about paying homage to natural surroundings so you’re wearing it in the right place. Don this ‘kini on an afternoon hike that leaves you lakefront or wear it during an afternoon adventure on a boat.
For the mermaids who are Las Vegas pool party bound, you must pack the Strappy Starlet Carnival as seen on mega merbabe, Tash Oakley. The super sexy style is just what you want to be seen in with all your besties as you kick back in your cabana and the champs flow. Amidst your heels and bodycon sets, bring this baby to take you from Encore Beach Club to Marquee Dayclub to Wet Republic and beyond. But it’s Vegas so pair this suit with some major accessories. Look to a pair of flash lense sunnies aviators some Mimi and Lu hoops and a sexy wedge sandal. Sun’s out, buns out, right, babes?!
For all of the merbabes who are taking to the waters and spending a few days on the beaches of Waikiki, the Big Island, Turtle Bay or any other magical beach locale, the only suit to bring is Pineapple Me Crazy. Leaving a little to the imagination, this Brazilian style bottom shows off all your best assets in the cutest way possible, so be sure this along with a little Kopari shimmer, your selfie stick, and a trusty pair of Havaianas make it into your bag. The cut of this suit says “major island babe,” and promises to take you from your surf lesson to midday mai-tais with easy. Toss on a semi-sheer cover-up and the pineapple print on your suit won’t be the only thing going cray.
