Premium swimsuit summer trends right now? For her new Fall collection, it was a shimmery gold Lurex, which she spliced with black-and-white stripes on a pair of high-rise bottoms. Once the fabrics and designs are finalized, the swimsuits are produced in small batches in New Jersey, which means less waste, less energy, and less leftover stock. Since she obviously can’t reproduce the fabrics, each style is a limited edition; once it’s gone, it’s really gone. Giejo’s wallet-friendly prices, which range from $99 for bottoms to $195 for a maillot, make it easier to stock up on a new print every summer. Sabharwal recently launched a collaboration with Madewell and has several exciting projects in the works, including new technology that will allow her to experiment with printing on solid vintage fabrics. For women who want comfortable, sexy swimsuits with a sustainable backstory, Giejo is bound to become a go-to. You can shop the current collection now at shopgiejo.com.
Bright, casual and sexy, Free People is clothing’s answer to Anthropologie (its sister company). Surfer girls and sun worshippers alike will find their home here, where each piece displays a unique concept and colour palette. Although born out of West Philadelphia, the relaxed Cali vibe of this brand is undeniable. For the ultimate bombshell look, there’s nowhere better than Monday Swimwear. Conceptualised around the notion that if you’re in a bikini on a Monday, life must be good, it’s a brand that’s focused on making the wearer feel sexy and feminine.

If you’re anything like us, you’ve got a drawer filled with favorite swimwear from seasons past, ranging anywhere from tie-dyed tops to color blocked bottoms. Well, get this: Those patterned pieces can play a major part in helping you stand out from the crowd this season…in a whole new way. Instead of wearing one straight-from-the-store bikini, we’re all about mixing and matching different tops and bottoms to create a unique-to-you look. Not super confident in your print-pairing? Create a cool connection by choosing a common color way or motif. For example, the micro-print on a Basta Surf top is the perfect pint-size match for bold sea foam green stripes from Target. Tropical florals in varying colors from Pret-a-Surf and Rosa Swim show how to double up on one design, as do spotty separates from Guess and BCA. Of course, we wouldn’t expect you to take our word for it—click through to see our favorite 10 bikini pairings for yourself!
What is your personal favorite giejo style? It depends on what mood I’m in – if I want to really stand out, I would wear the butterfly bandeau with the high-waist bottom. If I’m feeling more sweet, I would wear the mid boy’s brief and the floral bra top. That is what I love about this collection: There’s such a variety of looks one can achieve from just a couple of pieces that no matter who you are that day, you can dress with confidence! Where do you see your line going? What’s next? I love one-pieces. There’s something about them that looks so chic. I’m hoping to do something really creative and different with a one-piece as well as a few more transitional cover-ups. I’m also going to experiment with creating my own prints and layering fabrics.
