Our Favorite Swimwear Trends for Summer 2018 | Saving Our Seas One Swimsuit at a Time

SUMMER IS IN FULL SWING AND THE HOT TEMPS WEATHER IS RISING.

WITH SUNNY AND BLUE AHEAD FOR THE NEXT FEW MONTHS, BIKINIS ARE THE ONLY ARTICLES OF CLOTHING WE HAVE ON OUR HEARTS AND MINDS. 

Whether you are headed to the beach or the pool, we've compiled our favorite summer swim trends for 2018. 

The best feature of all is that they are ethically made and saving the seas one suit at a time with sustainable materials. Some are even made with recycled fishing nets pulled from our oceans and repurposed. 

Here they are! our top four favorite trends hitting the shores this summer and where you can find them:


1. 70's Inspired

VITAMIN A SWIM

Vitamin A bikinis and bodysuits are designed and produced locally in California with exceptional attention to detail, in our signature EcoLux fabric- a technically and environmentally superior luxe fabric, made from recycled nylon.


In our opinion, leopard print will NEVER go out of style. It is one of our wardrobe staple prints.
