There’s no denying it, summertime is here. And if you’re lucky enough to jet off to a European paradise or just catch some rays on the Carolina coastline, either way your swimsuit is calling. One-pieces are running wild this season, but don’t banish your bikini just yet. If it’s white, floral printed, or lace accented, your swim game is still on point. Looking to cover up between dips? Go for the luxe look in a flower kimono or lace cardigan. And, for a true nod to the Riviera style, a basket bag makes a perfect beach tote — and works well for non-beach days, too. -Nina Bays Cournoyer
