Summer is the season of waking up with the sun and staying up long after it sets. Who has time to go home to change outfits in between all of the activities you have planned?

To make the most of your summer, we’ve designed and created swimwear looks that easily transition from beach to barbecue so you can wear summer’s hottest trends from day to night. Many of our designs have been created with versatility in mind – so you can easily wear them during the day and in the evening, whether you’re out on the ocean or strolling the boardwalk.

One of our favorite Beach House tops to style day in and day out is the Lena Bandeau Tankini Top. It looks good on the beach, on the boat, on the boardwalk – and everywhere else you may go!

If you’re starting out the day with a stroll along the boardwalk, pair the Lena Bandeau Tankini Top with the highly versatile, extremely chic Emma Swim Skort. This look is perfect for not trying too hard, but still looking perfectly put-together that’s ideal for vacationing. The Emma Swim Skort has a bikini bottom attached underneath so you have the full coverage you desire while still remaining feminine and chic.

Take this look to the sailboat by switching out your Emma Swim Skort for the Chloe High Waist Bikini Bottom for a little more skin showing, perfect for soaking up the sun on the deck! For some additional support, add the detachable, adjustable straps to your Lena Bandeau Tankini Top to keep your top in place in case it gets a little rocky out at sea. 

 

 

Ending your day with a little retail therapy and a nice seaside dinner? Throw on the Jojo Cover Up Pants over your Chloe High Waisted Bikini Bottom for a feminine and effortless look. The pants are made of lightweight, quick-drying material and have waist pockets for your smaller belongings.

With a little salt water in your hair, you’ll be ready to throw on these fashion-forward swimwear looks and stay comfortable, casual and on-trend all summer long!

Designer Spotlight: Beach House

Staying close to our roots for looks you’ve grown to love, the Cruise 2016 Beach House Collection is beautiful, refined, and modest. The collection’s colors are Admiral, Black, and Tiki Coral. These are based on a nautical color palette that meshes well with the Beach House vibe. The prints are classics with a lively twist. Structured stripes with modest ombre fading, polka dots contrasted with vivid geos, and a variety of floral prints for a tropical summer feel.

We have also refreshed our silhouettes with some new key pieces. New additions include flouncy ruffled tankini tops, a chic high-neck tankini top, and a pleated skirted swimdress.

Sporty styles got a makeover with our durable racerback bra top, rib-knit camisole style tankini top, and a spliced racerback tankini featuring supportive underwire construction.

Beach House is known for its tried and true Americana style, unparalleled support, and incomparable comfort. This collection encapsulates each of those details we’re famous for. For a fresh spin on classic summer essentials, shop the new collection.

Beach House Lifestyle Workout Wednesday

Workout Wednesday: Count it Down

March 5, 2014

Count Down

We’re counting down the weeks to summer with this count-down style workout! This full body workout will tone, burn, and help you on your way to that summer body. I would recommend doing this up to three times a week – the squats and planks will hurt more than you realize at first, and you never want to over-do your workout!

NOTE: I am in NO WAY a fitness professional. Please do not take my comments to be professionally backed, nor do I know what is best for every body. I am simply sharing my personal experiences with these workouts. If you are unsure if you should be doing a particular workout, please consult your doctor first.

Beach House Count Down

Positives: The constant changing of moves kept me from feeling bored during my workout. The count down style also helped me to keep moving whenever I began to feel like I wanted to give up – knowing that the next step was ten less was a great motivation factor! I definitely felt the burn in my legs and abs, since I’m typically a runner rather than a core-workout girl, and this worked a completely new set of muscles for me. Another benefit of this is being able to do it whenever and wherever you are able – the whole workout takes under ten minutes and since you don’t need any props, you can do it without going to the gym.

Negatives: I felt the need to check online that I was doing the right postures for some of these moves, particularly the squats. If you’re doing it wrong (extending your knees over your toes), you’re actually not really doing much, and the time you’ve spent working out has basically become null and void. It’s definitely something you’d want to have a friend oversee, so you can ensure you’re doing everything properly.

Reaction: You absolutely feel the burn. Since it’s a full body workout, you feel it just about everywhere, which I both loved and hated. Muscles I’d never worked were aching the next morning, and immediately after I felt like I had really done a great workout.

Overall: I’d give this a 7/10. I love the circuit of the count down, and was a lot more tired from this than I anticipated. However, I struggle with maintaining proper form, which makes this something I have to really concentrate on to make sure I’m doing it right.

Workout Wednesday: Summer Shape Up

February 19, 2014

I’d be a liar if I didn’t admit to being a Pinterest junkie. In whatever free time I have, I often find myself perusing Pinterest and pinning dozens upon dozens of things I know I’ll never buy, make, eat, or do. I’ve got entire boards dedicated to the dream home I don’t own, the crafts I don’t have the time to make, and the foods I’ll never attempt to make in my tiny little kitchen. However, I am making an attempt to change that, and bringing you along for the ride. We’re getting in shape for summer, Pinterest style.

Every week, I’ll be delving into my Pinterest bank and giving an honest effort at one ten-minute or under workout. We’re all busy juggling work, social lives, and families, and none of us are willing to waste what little free time we have on something that isn’t beneficial. Consider me your internet filter, helping you find fun, quick workouts that actually make a difference.

NOTE: I am in NO WAY a fitness professional. Please do not take my comments to be professionally backed, nor do I know what is best for every body. I am simply sharing my personal experiences with these workouts. If you are unsure if you should be doing a particular workout, please consult your doctor first.

Workout Wednesday - Week 1

We’ll kick off this series with an eight-minute ab workout from Pumps & Iron. My best friend has always helped me do an 8-minute ab series, but after a while of doing the same routine, your body becomes too used to it, and the workout becomes less and less effective. I spotted this 8-Minute Abs, 2.0 and after noticing that they weren’t moves I’d tried yet, decided to give it a shot.

 

8 Minute Abs

 

Positives: The graphics provided made the moves easy to understand and execute, even though they hadn’t necessarily been moves I’d done before. The workout moves at a great pace, changing up movements every 45 seconds, while the eight-minute timing makes it easy to do before work, before your nightly shower, or any other time you might have a few spare minutes. It’s also a prop-free workout, meaning I didn’t have to buy weights, a mat, or any other workout materials before starting.

Negatives: I did this on my wooden bedroom floor, so some of the ones that required me to be laying on my back hurt my spine a bit, which was more my own fault. As a result of an existing back injury, I had to refrain from the butt lifts, and substituted by doing an additional 30-second plank.

Overall: I’d give this a 6/10. There’s a good chance I wasn’t actually doing the moves correctly, since I didn’t feel as much as I felt I should’ve when I woke up this morning. I’m definitely not in shape, but the ab-burning morning-after feeling I’d been expecting was non-existent. Other than that, I felt like it was a really good workout, with the perfect way of switching it up every 45 seconds. I’d never realized how long 45 seconds can be, which made this workout feel like it was really making a difference. However, I’ll have to invest in a better stopwatch than my phone – it’s a pain to keep stopping and resetting my timer. Other than that, I loved not being completely out of breath, but still felt like I’d done a solid workout!
