Summer’s Coolest Bathing Suits and Cover-ups
The temperatures are rising, and New Yorkers are lounging anywhere the grass is green and available (hello, Bryant Park!) when the sun is shining. We predict many weekend trips to the city’s beaches, rooftops and parks, so you’ll need an army of swimsuits and cover-ups to take you through the summer. Here are some of our favorites—you’ll want to have these as soon as yesterday. Happy shopping!

It seems like no matter where you turn, all the ladies are wearing one of Triangl Swimwear’s two-pieces. The playful swimsuits add a major pop of color for the days spent lounging in the sun. And, with prices topping out at $99, it’s not hard to understand just why Triangl is one of this summers most sought after pieces.

The duo of sisters behind the Australian brand Zimmerman is known for its sophisticated and feminine swimwear. We’re loving this season’s siren red one-piece. Classic, but edgy thanks to a V-wire neckline and front cutout detail, this piece is a stunner.

You need a cover-up, but you don’t want to actually cover-up your awesome swimsuit (that’s why you bought it after-all). This crochet piece with beaded gold and silver accents, is chic enough for any lazy day by the pool.

This hand-dyed silk poncho creates an effortless, bohemian look. It’s also ridiculously comfy, thanks Soft to the touch—the benefits of using 100% silk. Slip this number on after frolicking in the sand, and you’re ready to take on the evening at your favorite waterfront restaurant.

The refined swimsuit

The maillot swimsuit is reminiscent of the roaring 1920s, a decade we are never quite ready to part with here at Refinery. Try this one from ASOS. Winnie would definitely approve.
