On the Look Out: for Swimwear

Like it or not it's time to start gearing up for summer and the JSG are here to help. Our first stop is South Moon Under. We used to visit the funky little surf shop in Ocean City when we were kids, now they've expanded to 11 stores and a fab on-line site. Their trendy mix of designers includes Ella Moss, Free People and French Connection. They've retained that laid back beachy feel, in fact their largest group of customers buying on line comes from LA. They still have one of the best selection of swimsuits around. We found this great looking stripe bikini from Radio Fiji. ($96) The white, brown and black strips are flattering on all skin tones (we wear one ourselves in these colors), and the braided leather strap and gold rings are new and lux.

And we also like this tunic from Trina Turk for $138, it's colorful and boho:

When we're in Miami, we try to visit the Mermaids boutique in nearby Coconut Grove. We thank Abby for turning us onto this place (though our bank account isn't quite so happy about it). It carries pricier lines like Vix and La Tarte shown below. They have a great selection on-line though it's a little tricky to navigate. Check out these two bikinis by La Tarte:

The first has a great coral fan on the top and we love the coordinating but not matching bottoms. This would look great with a (self-made) tan ($161).

The second, also from La Tarte, is great in light denim (another way to wear our beloved jeans)and the skinny belt is a great accent ($166).

Lastly, check out this Vix Mikonos Bikini for at $184 the biggest splurge we found. Careful of the Brazilian bottoms.

Check back with us soon, we'll be on the look out for more swimwear.

Happy Travels!
