Ahh yes. Miami Swim week. Where the fashion is hot hot hot! This year was an amazing year filled of first, inclusion, and best of all—swimwear to die for. Here are some of our favorite shows from Miami Swim Week 2019:

Cia Marítima

Is your swimsuit even sustainable? Several brands like Vetchy, Cia Marítima, Dos Gardenias and The Bikini Lab, made nods towards saving our planet’s oceans. The Brazilian brand Cia Marítima took the cake though. Not only did they throw a fantasitic summer bash but they also presented two collections, the ‘Tropics Summer 2020’ and the “Life Print” collection, which was created in partnership with AMPARA and 100% of the profits will be donated to preserve jaguars.

A huge trend we saw on Miami Swim Week was: prints; and a brand that is well-known for their bright and colorful patterns is Luli Fama. This season they presented fun designs with lots of high-cut pieces for a cheeky look.

Chloé Rose

Talking about high-cut pieces, Chloé Rose made sure to take it to another level. Giving out serious retro vibes, models walked down the runway wearing skimpy swimsuits with fun animal prints and vibrant solid colors. These super figure-flattering pieces guarantee the best tan lines!

Oh Polly

This UK brand served some serious Kim K vibes and since her style is everywhere, it had to be mentioned. Presenting the perfect combination of sportswear and beachwear, Oh Polly stuck with the high-cut trend but adding some neon and metallics in the mix. Let’s talk about glam.
