Haute + Cool: Destination Summer


For a fun-filled day of sun and sand, the perfect swimsuit is top priority. You may prefer a one-piece or a two-piece — or just need options — but style and function must align.

Test the waters in this season’s blazing hot corals and golden ambers of the Sunbelt. Be sure the cut is flattering and the fabric is firm and tight. No waterside wardrobe malfunctions, please!

Once you have that under control, you’ll be ready to invest in a kaftan with personality. But don’t they all? Find lightweight sandals that can handle the scorching sands. How about a clever carry to add a touch of zest? Top it off with a wide brim hat to provide some sunshade.

Now it is time to take the plunge. Whether you are sunning on the shore or surfing the seas, you are guaranteed to be making waves.
