Forget sweaters and winter coats—we’ve just about had it with those. Now that spring has arrived, summer will be here before we all know it. With our minds already in vacation mode, all we’re craving are cartoon bathing suits, colorful sunnies, and the occasional piña colada (or three). Lounging poolside has never looked so good.
Brands like Batoko offer swimsuits in a variety of different patterns, ranging from pink “Dinosass” pieces to swimwear adorned with bananas (which immediately brings us back to the Gwen Stefani “Hollaback Girl” days). You can style them with retro Poppy Lissiman sunnies for a major fashion statement or wear under overalls for an easygoing, summertime look. While one can easily associate fanny packs with dads who pair socks with their sandals, the brand Merrimaking has given these accessories a full-on fruit-inspired upgrade. Bye-bye, weather under 60 degrees—we’re ready for temperatures equivalent to paradise (and the cutest clothes to match).
