JUST IN FROM SWIM SENSE: SUNSET WAVES

An Exclusive New Print
May 18, 2022

This season, a mood-lifting new kaleidoscopic swirl print is making a bold splash in swimwear. This mesmerizing print was hand drawn in house, taking inspiration from vintage Italian magazine tears, to make your up and coming swim looks essentially one of a kind.

BUT FIRST: A LITTLE BACK STORY

Swim Sense By Carmen Marc Valvo, Exclusively for Boston Proper

Swim Sense is a brilliant fashion collab between lauded designer Carmen Marc Valvo and Boston Proper. These top-selling separates and suits were mindfully designed with wider comfort straps, ruching through the tummy and torso to shape and slim and mold bra cups for the most flattering support. Available in a wide array of ever evolving colors and prints, these are the designs to stock up on.

What’s more, you can mix, match and create your perfect suit via four interchangeable silhouettes. Here’s the low down on the swimsuit bottoms and swimsuit tops you’re going to want in your summer and vacation wardrobe arsenal:

The tankini top featuring ruched sides and a front lining for a smoothing effect gives off the feel of a two-piece with the meet-and-greet full coverage of a one-piece. Want to bear a little more skin, the wrap bikini top is your go-to, with flexible underwire and molded cups. Every single soul that’s tried this design on here at Boston Proper headquarters is hooked for its unparalleled sexy support.

The high waist bikini bottom features slimming ruched sides and can be worn high or scrunched down at the ruched sides for a hipster-style look. The high-waist skirted bottom provides feminine and flirtatious full coverage, with a power mesh panel for tummy control, and comfort banded stretch waist. It’s perfectly suited for those long beach walks you love and lunching by the pool.

THE COVER UPS.

Tunic or Duster? Verdict: Both

Your pick! In this iconic new print though, choosing both is perfectly acceptable. No seriously, listen, these styles were thoughtfully designed for versatilty and wear beyond the beach or pool. If you’re a bit daring, the tunic can pass as a dress over your swimsuit when your morning by the pool turns into lunch plans. Otherwise, it looks ah-may-zing over leggings or shorts. It’s true, the duster makes the most sweeping statement as you stroll the beach, over your favorite one-piece swimsuit. But in office, you’ll see us sporting the duster over a knit tank and our favorite jeans.

& How to Style

Oversized and versatile. Diaphanous and gorgeous. Essential and beach-look defining, definitely. Wrap it around your waist and tie, easy. Style as a halter top, so utterly chic. Or even as a head scarf, exotic and perfect for messy hair days. Or simply wrap it around your shoulders when an ocean breeze picks up. Fact: this fashion essential should live in your beach bag.
