Though the weather has been chilly in Charleston, our recent trip to the Bahamas was filled with warm, sunny days perfect for the beach and pool. I always like to wear a wrap or pareo over my swimsuit for a stylish alternative to shorts or a traditional swimsuit cover-up. Whether my swimsuit and wrap share a matching print, complimentary shade, or a variation of both, the end result always looks chic. These vacation worthy wraps and pareo styles can also be matched with a simple tee or button down blouse with rolled sleeves, tied at the waste and a pair of sandals for an afternoon of shopping. Whatever the combination, beach and pool clothing should be comfortable and easy to carry in a tote or beach bag. Below is a beautiful collection of swimsuits, wraps and pareos to add a refined style to spring and summer warm weather days ahead.
Hand Block Printed Pareo
India Amory is one of my favorite go-to sources for beautiful block print table wear. But I am equally excited about the wonderful pareos with a similar aesthetic. For my sister’s bachelorette party in Miami last year, I brought each of the girls a different pareo from the India Armory collection, which make perfect swimsuit coverups (seen here) as well as scarves to dress up a white or neutral tee (as seen here).
I am a huge fan of smocking as it is so flattering and comfortable. I have this bikini from Tory Burch in a different colorway and it is always my go-to (last seen in the Bahamas here). The floral print is subtle and easy to pair with anything from a pareo to a pair of white linen pants.
