DownEast Basics Swimwear

Spring is finally here and if you’re like me you’re already thinking of summer.  When you’re thinking summer, you are most definitely thinking what you’re going to be wearing to the beach, the pool, or even just bathing in your backyard.  If so, you should check out DownEast Basics with their new swimwear arrivals that will get you all ready for hot weather.

Oceansidetank2 Like the rest of the DownEast Basics line, their swimwear is not only adorable and stylish, it’s also completely affordable, too.  I’ve already mentioned how much I love their full line of tops, skirts and pants that are flattering and feminine, as well as their classic and trendy handbags, but you can now add swimwear to that list as well.  I was thrilled to try out the DownEast Basics Sunset Swim Dress this spring because I love the retro feel of the swim top and how well it covers, camouflages, and conceals, but still looks sporty and feminine at the same time. 

At first I thought the Sunset Swim Dress was a one piece bathing suit, but was surprised to find out that it is a two piece suit (bottoms sold separately) which makes it really easy to mix and match or pair with your favorite bikini bottoms.  I absolutely love the gathering details down the sides of the suit and in the bust of the halter that are very feminine and flirty.  The ruffled bottom of the Swim Dress is also adorable and completely retro, and makes me feel like a classic movie starlet.

Sunsetswimdress The Swim Dress has a lined shelf bra and is made from nylon/spandex in two different prints.  I chose the black top so I could pair it with my colorful swim accessories and even a summery skirt and create a very classic swim look no matter where the hot weather takes me this summer.  Now that I’ve tried the DownEast Basics Swim Dress, I would love to try out the Oceanside Tank in the blue clover pattern or the Malibu Swim Skirt which would be just the colorful swim separates to alternate or coordinate with the Swim Dress.   

As much as I love the Sunset Swim Dress, I really adore that the whole DownEast Basics swim line with their fun and feminine styles.  With classic pieces as well as stylish and trendy options, DownEast Basics truly offers something for every woman.  When paired with one of their gorgeous handbags or totes, you are sure to turn heads everywhere this summer.  If you haven’t already checked out DownEast Basics for their line of clothing and accessories, you should definitely head there and start your shopping with their swimwear line.

Sunset Swim Dress Price: $29.99
