The Great Escape

Opulent Embellishments

A jewel-trimmed turquoise tunic top (tbagslosangeles, Lucca) doubles as a chic cover-up over a white bikini (La Blanca Swim, Lucca). A wide-brimmed hat (Blue Lagoon), gold cuff and square gem bracelet (Shoefly) bring the look together.


Svelte Silhouettes

A plunging neckline puts a spin on a classic black maillot (La Blanca Swim, Lucca) perfect for a day lounging by the pool or on the boat. Sunglasses (Seafolly, Blue Lagoon).

Effortless Maxis

Make waves in a navy ombre floor-length dress (Young Fabulous & Broke, Lucca) combined with a laid-back, beaded necklace (Maria & Carol’s Boutique).

Bohemian Prints

A pink and green paisley-print blouse (Hale Bob, Maria & Carol’s Boutique) with white jeans evokes relaxed tropical style. White earrings (Kendra Scott, Lucca). Gold cuff (Shoefly). Pale coral gem bracelet (Ooh La La).

Flowy chiffon palazzo pants (Alexis, Lucca) — so popular this year — and a simple turquoise swimsuit (Helen Jon, Blue Lagoon) make a statement. Hat (Blue Lagoon). Wrap bracelet (Chan Luu, Maria & Carol’s Boutique).


Tailored Sundresses

Pale pink and cream stripes update a classic shift (Eiffel Designs, Ooh La La).  A yellow necklace (Shoefly) and aqua earrings (Kendra Scott, Lucca) liven up the date night look.

Cool Cutouts

The edgy peek-a-boo trend gives a coral chiffon maxi dress (Sachin + Babi, Lucca) subtle sexiness. Dress it up for dinner and drinks with white earrings (Kendra Scott, Lucca) and silver wedges (Seychelles, Shoefly).

Structured Suits

High-waisted striped bottoms paired with a solid navy top (Seafolly, Blue Lagoon) are a sophisticated take on the classic bikini.
