Current Obsession: Perfect Swim Pieces by Shaina Mote
One of our absolute favorite brands, Shaina Mote (read all about it here), just launched an online exclusive collection of swimwear – and it is perfection. (No, we’re not sponsored!). Perfection being a super simple, clean-cut bikini top with a wide, square neckline combined with the ideal bottoms featuring a flattering, high-rise waist. Then there’s the one-piece – the only one you’ll ever need – with the same wide, square neckline and a deep scoop back.
All pieces are made to order in Los Angeles, and comes in a recycled Italian polyamide and lycra fabric, which is fully sustainable and features sun-blocking, moisture wicking and chlorine resistant properties. Colors are optimal too. No doubt it’s a buy that will last forever (or many, many seasons), and we’ll forever regret that we’ve already maxed out our budget for swimwear this year, and next.
The pieces are only available for pre-order, and ships on July 15-25. If you can: add to bag and hope it arrives in time for vacation.
