What’s the Nic Del Mar summer style mantra?
A crochet/lace piece always goes a long way. It’s classic and never goes out of style and should be a staple cover up in everyone’s closet.
What are some cool, current bikini trends?
We’re loving macrame! We collaborated with Indah to produce this gorgeous macrame bikini. It looks like crochet, but in fact it’s your typical swimsuit material woven by hand.
Another way macrame is showing up is through the woven elastic exposed bikinis by Kiini. These are definitely the hottest swimsuits of the summer!
How do you choose a monokini that’s right for your bod?
A great piece of advise to take with you as your shopping for a monokini is to find one with adjustable straps. That way you can adjust the suit to fit your torso and shoulders.
Also, its always important to find monokinis that feature cut outs that accentuate the smallest parts of your body. You can see it in this Mara Hoffman suit. The cutouts are strategically placed on your hip bone and right below the bust line.
What’s the best way to style up a swimsuit?
The best way to style up a swimsuit is with an amazing coverup. Our favorite style is something loose and flowy, something effortless and chic. We also suggest investing in one that is white. It will easily match with all your swimsuits.

What’s the best cover up for a beach day?
Something that slips over easily and keeps you cool. We like this black lace cover up from Bettinis. It’s no fuss but still so on trend.
What do you do when you’re gonna be going directly from the beach to a dinner/ night out?
Pack a dress that can be worn from day to night like this Acacia Swimwear one. Or choose a coverup that brings a slip like this Anna Kosturova one. With a pair of wedges, it easily transforms into a dress.
Roses are red, violets are blue and PVC is officially back! If there’s one 2000s trend that I remember fondly, it’s red PVC. Slick, sleek and utterly on fleek, every “It”girl from Christina Aguilera to Britney Spears were never caught dead without it. Although it was not an everyday street style staple, the timelessness of shiny
Bras are one of those pieces of clothing that may look the part but can be horrible at their job. And oftentimes, the boring, simplistic ones are the ones that might turn out to be the most comfortable. Either way, you’ll always have 2 or 3 that you find going back to, wash after wash,
