Before you hit the beach, instead of wearing your usual uniform of shorts and a tank top, elevate your beach style with a pretty and effortlessly stylish caftan for your next beach getaway.

Every July swimwear and resort wear designers flock to Miami Beach, Florida for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim to present their collections. This is probably the industry’s biggest swimwear event, where hundreds of buyers, fashion bloggers, fashionistas and other industry insiders come to preview the season’s must-have trends.
Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim celebrated 10 years this past weekend (Jul 17-21). This year’s lineup included designers such as Mara Hoffman (of course), Beach Bunny, Dolores Cortés, Poko Pano and soo many more.
I’m still going through the plethora of shows on MBFW’s youtube channel, and so far what’s clear is that high-waist bottoms and sexy cut-outs are still in, but some other trends that have emerged for 2015 includes sleek one-pieces, camel crochet knits, metallics, jewelry not only serving as embellishments, but worked into the construction of the swimwear, and chic tribal print cover-ups. Below are my favorite collections from this season, Sinesia Karol, Gottex and Caitlin Kelly, respectively.
With summer well on the horizon, so is the beach party season. So what will you wear while you log countless hours braving the sea, sun and sand?
Here’s a thought…give that bikini a break and try a trendy one piece. Whether you go for classic black, a fun coral color, or even the nautical route, turn up in an unexpected (but equally stylish and as alluring as a bikini) one-piece.
Other essentials to consider:
- A great pair of sandals
- Killer sunglasses
- Fabulous stackable bangles
- A fashionable yet functional carry-all beach tote
- An amazing kaftan (that can take you from day to evening)
- Lastly and most importantly – don’t forget the sun-block
