COVERUP:Diane von Furstenberg‘s bold prints meet Roxy’s signature swim silhouettes in a collection that is both playful and empowering. The graphic hexagon print of this dress, with its bold use of shadows, recalls some of DVF’s first designs. It doubles as a swim coverup so you can look stylish poolside.

ROOM: Inspired by The Endless Summer? A surf board can be a sculptural element when bared with likeminded bohemian items. Surf shack chic is embodied by relaxed and mismatched pieces. A slightly eroded wooden floor helps, too. Photograph via Coastal Living.

Bathing Suit: One Piece Swimsuit by Hanne Bloch. The seventies inspired halter one piece comes in a classic multi-color knit and is finished with the designer’s signature flirty silver tassels. The designer Hanne Bloch’s philosophy is that a wardrobe should complement the beach or pool-side as much as it does a night out. Image found HERE./ Room: The vibrant patterned rug, the natural fibers (cottons, woods, etc) all play into the easy yet bright calm vibe of this room. The wire mesh coffee table in a cerulean blue gives a quirky vibe and directly contrast the color play of the orange and purple hues. Brighter is better. Image found HERE.
