Face-Kinis Big in China

Bizarre Sun Protection Trend

Face-Kinis Big in China | Bizarre Sun Protection Trend The Chinese are behind one of the strangest beach fashion trends we've seen in some time. Most of us would wear a bikini, a monokini, or a tankini, but I'm not we'll be following in their footsteps and donning face-kinis any time soon! As it's name suggests, the face-kini is a bizarre bikini that's worn over the face. The mask helps Chinese sunlovers protect their delicate porcelain s…

Gucci Releases GG Flag Collection | T-Shirts & Bags Fundraise UNICEF Schools for Asia Program A men's T-shirt is amongst the items in Gucci's new GG Flag Collection. The gray tee features a flag-printed version of Gucci's logo designed by the company's creative director Frida Giannini.

3-Fins Creates Mermaid Swimsuits

Cute Overpriced Novelty Swimwear

3-Fins Creates Mermaid Swimsuits | Cute Overpriced Novelty Swimwear If we're to believe the hype, mermaid tail swimsuits are set to become the next best thing. The unusual 3-Fins swimsuits, designed by Canadian mom Monika Naumann, feature a "Mono Fin" for swimming. Of course that tail's probably going to make it awkward to actually get to the water, but it should make the fantasies of many little girls come true. Perhaps most worrying is that the 3-Fi…

Warby Parker Buys Soho Store | First Bricks and Mortar Outlet on the Way Sunglasses and spectacles firm Warby Parker is moving from the internet into its very first bricks and mortar store. The company secured its Sopho boutique at 121 Greene Street after a year long search. The store will take up some 2,500 square feet of prime real estate, although Warby Parker is refusing to disclose how much it will pay. We can guarantee it's not cheap though, as groun…

Fox Racing Rockstar Goldie Bikini

Black & White Triangle Swimsuit

0/10
Fox Racing Rockstar Goldie Bikini | Black & White Triangle Swimsuit Fox Racing and Rockstar Energy Drink buck current fashion trends with their jointly designed Goldie Bikini. The black and white color palette is timeless, but it's cheapened by the loud logos on the bikini's triangles. Logos are really falling out of favor, and these ones aren't attractive enough or discreet enough to convince us to take a chance. They transform this swimsuit fro…

Insight Dream Lover One-Piece

Floral Swimsuit with Plunging Neckline

0/10
Insight Dream Lover One-Piece | Floral Swimsuit with Plunging Neckline Insight invites us to fall hard for its Dream Lover swimsuit. The design is certainly romantic, with warm yellowy roses set against a dramatic black background. The plunging neckline brings some contemporary contrast to the classic print. Adding ruffles or lace would have been an obvious pairing for the feminine pattern, but by choosing a stronger neckline Insight's ensured it…

Stylish Snake Print Summer Shoes

Cole Haan Deandra Gladiator Sandals | Stylish Snake Print Summer Shoes From Ancient Rome to the modern shoreline, Cole Haan has brought Gladiator sandals into the present day with the Deandra. Those Roman gladiators would recognize the strappy style, but I'll bet their shoes didn't have such a stylish finish. The snake embossing gives the leather a real modern flair. The gleaming silver buckles and rings bring some more contemporary personality to…

Joie Bahamas Cover-Up

Indian Inspired Embroidered Beach Tunic

0.0/10
Joie Bahamas Cover-Up | Indian Inspired Embroidered Beach Tunic It might be called the Bahamas, but Joie seems to be channeling Indian fashion with this beach cover-up. It's got a bit of an identity crisis, but the Bahamas still manages to make a strong style statement. Intricate embroidery along the plunging neckline and cuffs pops against the gauzy white fabric. Joie doesn't make any assurances about this material’s sun smart credentials…

Roxy Sunray Flip Flops

Simple Black Bejeweled Beach Shoes

0.0/10
Roxy Sunray Flip Flops | Simple Black Bejeweled Beach Shoes Roxy adds some feminine flair to its classic flip flops with these Sunray shoes. Given its bright summery name, I expected this pair of flip flops to look a little livelier. But instead of rainbow colors these flip flops are available in basic black. It's a classic choice, easy to pair with any swimsuit you wish, but not very interesting. Only the pink Roxy heart on the footbed adds a bi…

Trina Turk Kuta Tunic Top

White Crochet Beach Cover-Up

0.0/10
Trina Turk Kuta Tunic Top | White Crochet Beach Cover-Up Trina Turk offers a cover-up that values style over sun protection with the Kuta. If you're looking for a cover-up to repel the sun's rays, this isn't it. Its soft sheer crochet exposes plenty of skin, and it's so light that anything covered isn't likely to block those harmful UVs. But it's meant to make a fashion statement rather than serve as a functional piece of summer apparel. For…

Gottex Madagascar One-Piece

Blue Zebra Print Square Neck Swimsuit

Gottex Madagascar One-Piece | Blue Zebra Print Square Neck Swimsuit Gottex shows its wild side with this African inspired Madagascar swimsuit. This is one of Gottex's most dramatic swimsuits. If the label's mattes seem too tame for you, you’ll likely love the clash of stylized zebra print with tribal patterned trim. We've seen Gottex offer a few patterns before, but they were much more traditional than this bold design. Whether you think it's to…

As we see with much of the Betsey Johnson collection, there's nothing subtle about this swimsuit. The ruffles and bows at the straps are unashamedly girly. The diagonal blue stripes pop against the white background. By keeping the bust free of frills, Betsey Johnson ensure…

Retro Pink Gingham Swim Top

Guess Pin Me Down Bikini | Retro Pink Gingham Swim Top Guess channels 50s fashion with this playful Pin Me Down Bikini. This swim top's gingham print is timeless, yet as it's not overused in modern fashion it still feels fresh. In pink it's especially feminine, perhaps too feminine for some tastes. But if you embrace your girly side you'll be glad Guess has too. The jaunty white bow between the cups adds a final whimsical flourish. The Pi…
