Swimsuits, meet sunnies. Sunnies, meet swimsuits! It’s summertime y’all, which means beachwear is all the rage. Whether you’re soakin’ up the sun by the ocean, lake, pool or in your very own backyard, both bathing suits and shades are absolute musts! But don’t just pair your bikini, one-piece or trunks with just any set of sunglasses. Put some more thought into your fun-in-the-sun ensemble, and make sure they match—that way you’ll look super cohesive and quite stylish! To give you some inspiration, we’ve handpicked some of our fave sunnies of the season and coupled them with corresponding suits. Check out our exclusive selections below!
Ladies, one-piece swimsuits can be just as sexy and fashionable as bikinis! Opt for a slimming design in a simplistic, girly print with neckline detailing for added flair. And don’t be afraid to give your cutesy suit a boost with look-at-me sunnies! Oversized square cat-eyes, in an alluring maroon hue, from TOMS Eyewear are a perfect choice!
Show off your gorgeously toned bod in a revealing twisted-front, bandeau top and low-rise bottoms—if you’ve got it, flaunt it, girls! Zigzag patterns in vibrant colors, like seafoam blue and chic white—not to mention Karl Lagerfeld rounded shades in an equally bright pigment, with a delicate keyhole bridge—are sure to keep all eyes on you!
Old-School Glam Girl
Go vintage by rocking high-waisted bikini bottoms and a bralette top in an adorable polka dot motif—this style couldn’t be more flattering or feminine! Keep your peepers on point with demure oval cat-eyes from L’Wren Scott in a matching bright tone, like deep coral. To boot, gold leaf temple embellishments scream timeless elegance!
It seems like guys’ swim trunks are getting shorter and shorter, just like they were in the ‘60s and ‘70s—heck, we’re cool with that! Dudes, make a spectacle of your tan, muscular legs by sporting a high-cut style in a multi-colored, retro-inspired print. A pair of Lafont dapper round shades in forest green with a quintessential keyhole bridge will only add to your old-school look!
If you’d rather get your adrenaline pumping while ridin’ waves with your bros than just chilling out on the sand, then a longer, sportier swimsuit is best for you! Make sure your sunglasses follow suit—rock spirited SPY modernized square shades with a lime green and black two-toned coloration for adventurous fervor. Neon lenses will also bring an element of daring surprise to your eyes!
Charming gents everywhere are known for making trendy statements in casually preppy, yet vintage, get-ups. Sound like you? Then try a seersucker-like suit, in muted blue and white stripes, for classy appeal. Meshed with true light wood wayfarer sunnies from Shwood, this look gives way to dashing traditionalism.
