With Summer 2021 right around the corner we’re reluctantly hanging up the sweatpants and reassessing our summer threads. While our plans for this summer are still firming up, the LÔTELI team does plan to spend a decent amount of time drifting around on a pool float lounger, a good book in hand. With this plan in mind, we scoured the four corners of the internet to compile our four favorite swimsuits of 2021, as well as the LÔTELI pool floats we'd pair them with.
1. The Classic Bandeau
If your summer goals include avoiding tan lines at all costs, a classic bandeau style like this black-and-white striped bikini from Anemos Swim is a must. We love the quirky mismatched print and high-waisted bottoms. Continue the black-and-white moment with our LÔTELI Brunette Float for a Bridget Bardot-inspired, Riviera-chic pool party look.
2. The Perfect String Bikini
Summer brides-to-be, may we suggest you swiftly add-to-cart this white string bikini by Melissa Odabash? Behold, the delicate straps! The sparkling gold accents! Imagine them catching the late-afternoon sunlight as you flip through bridal magazines on your NYC fire escape. This swimsuit is the yin to our sweatpants’ yang. If you’re taking it poolside, we can see if matching perfectly with our LÔTELI gold heart shape pool float.
3. The Retro Two-Piece
If Baywatch was set in Rio de Janeiro, and we were designing the costumes, this is the swimsuit we’d pick. This red bikini from Tropic of C has a leg-lengthening cut and a throw-back classic demi-cup top. We would pair this show-stopping suit with our retro-inspired LÔTELI Classic Cassette pool float lounger.
4. The Minimal Maillot
There’s something about this sophisticated one-piece that promises to make us the better, more put-together versions of our summer selves. We would automatically become good with houseplants, and never forget a birthday. From Australian label BONDI BORN, the chic silhouette and 90s-style neckline are stylish yet understated. We would keep the minimal aesthetic going by pairing this pistachio-hued suit with a large pool float for adults in a transparent design like our LÔTELI Clear Ring.
5. The Sustainable Suit
This adorable tie-front bikini from sustainable label lemlem comes in the prettiest shade of sunset pink. We think it would look amazing with a heart shaped pool float, especially in a matching shade of pink. Watermelon Sugar High!
