Ain’t life wonderful?!
Byron Bay, Australia
Surrounded by glorious golden coastline as far as the eye can see, Australia is indeed home to many of the world’s most beautiful beaches. Throw in the Aussies and their laid back lifestyle, and you have a beach destination that’s hard to beat. Byron Bay, on Australia’s Pacific Coast, is one of the country’s best examples, blending the best that Australia has to offer, from great surf to bohemian chic and city savoir faire.
The look: Jade Mountain 2 by Sauvage Swimwear/ Ace by Birdie Jo Swimwear
You could go a couple of different ways here: 1) Choose designer bikinis that are feminine but not too sweet, like the Jade Mountain 2 by Sauvage Swimwear; or 2) Choose designer swimsuits that are funky and fun, like the Ace by Birdie Jo Swimwear. Don’t go for gaudy or over the top, women’s swimwear Byron Bay style is all about relaxed effort and unaffected cool.
A land of close to 8000 islands, the Philippines certainly has its fair share of stunning beach destinations. But for pristine, crystal blue waters, tropical palm trees and a night life to match, Boracay appeals in more ways than one. Cruise around the islands by day and frolic in the warm waters by night… and don’t forget your cocktails!
The look: Hanky Panky by Beach Bunny Swimwear/ Kenya by Red Carter
Island holidays are always a little sexy, so meet the mood with designer swimwear to match. Think sultry and fun, like the black studded Hanky Panky by Beach Bunny Swimwear or the exotic with sexy swimwear like Kenya by Red Carter.
Puerto Escondido, Mexico
The Pacific Coast of Mexico is known worldwide for its stunning beaches and beautiful backdrops - from Los Cabos to Acapulco and Puerto Vallarta. But when it comes to big waves and bohemian cool, nothing beats Puerto Escondido. Here, lazy days are spent sipping cervezas, relaxing in the cool breeze and watching the day turn to night over crashing waves…
The look: Chains by Sauvage Swimwear/ White Ruffle by Maya Swimwear
To match the chilled out vibe, choose a simple, unadorned designer swimsuit. Bright whites and bold blacks, like the Chains by Sauvage Swimwear and White Ruffle by Maya Swimwear, are a great choice for these types of designer bikinis - you’ll look radiant and dazzling without looking you like you put thought into it at all.
Set in the Basque region, a gorgeous coast line land straddling northern Spain and France, Biarritz was the holiday destination du jour in the first half of the 20th century. Lined with gorgeous art deco buildings and decorated walkways along the beach, an indefinable elegance still floats in the air. Indeed, Biarritz is still one of France’s most sophisticated beach destinations, but modern times and the discovery of some of Europe’s best surfing waves have attracted a younger crowd too, creating an electric vibe of old-world charm and youthful vibrancy.
The look: Venezia by Sauvage Swimwear / Spellbound by Beach Bunny
A touch of class is the call of the day in Biarritz. But a little fun and flirting is always on the agenda! Choose designer swimsuits, like the Venezia by Sauvage Swimwear or Spellbound by Beach Bunny, with beaded detailing or enamel adornments for a high class touch. But remember, for sophisticated yet sexy designer bikinis, less is more - don’t go overboard with lots of colors. Stick to one color swimsuits and let the detailing work their magic.
