Once I heard someone say you shouldn’t wear an entire outfit of clothes from one store or you’ll look like a mannequin (or walking billboard) for that store. I never really thought about that before and, honestly, it sounds pretty insane. It would mean anyone remotely looking at you (and your outfit) would have to know the entire contents of a store to know where you’ve purchased it. I suppose this really only made sense back in the day with Hollister and Abercrombie and Fitch since those items were heavily labeled.
Either way it’s always been some strange idea in the back of my mind every day when I get dressed. It’s likely the most unnecessary thing to be thinking about while getting dressed for the day. That said there are quite a few stores I shop at almost, I guess you could almost say, religiously. So the eventuality of being all dressed in one store is inevitable. Why am I talking about this?
One of the best and worst things about summer are bathing suits. Chilling poolside is basically a requirement right now (it’s about 120 degrees out right now as I type this, no lie) and doing it fully clothed would be weird. The material swimsuits are made from is often cooler than some items of clothing so they are even wearable outside of the pool. There is a return to modesty this summer with more swimsuits being made of more fabric and cuts that provide greater coverage. The chic one piece is having a major moment right now, but like many other things, it really depends on the person, their preference, and body type.
I love this Zimmerman striped bikini because I love a good set of stripes and a bikini. With a one piece I like the Solid & Striped Lexi. The navy color is classic and the white provides nice, clean lines.
