At this time of year, we’re all in hot pursuit of Summer and if you’re like me, you’ve already started thinking about your swimwear collection. Residing in the Bondi bubble, I live in swimwear and I’m always looking for new ways to mix it up. In the warmer months, I’m out of the house early and I usually don’t return until dark. A lot of outings are multi-purpose; brunch with friends, a workout, grocery shopping, a few appointments and of course, a swim (or two) in the ocean. But suiting up for all occasions can be tricky and while the concept of beach to street dressing isn’t a new one, it can still be challenging.
Enter THE UPSIDE, with some fresh pieces to take you effortlessly from beach to Barre Body to brunch to the beautician all in the one outfit. Here’s two big reasons The Upside scores an A+ in versatile, practical and stylish active wear.
The crops double as swimwear
Who doesn’t love a 2-in-1! THE UPSIDE crops excel at catering to that urge to jump into the big blue straight after yoga. Supportive and comfortable yet stylish and fun, these sport crops make up one half of a perfect bikini. They will take you coolly from sweating to swimming, boxing to basking, cross-fit to cosies, pilates to paddling – I could go all day!
These three crops come with matching bottoms that make them not only the perfect workout top, but also a great addition to that ever expanding batch of bikinis.
One pieces are complimented perfectly with a pair of shorts
If you’re constantly testing the boundaries of how far from the beach one can acceptably wear a swimsuit, this option is for you. THE UPSIDE one pieces are so pretty it would be a crying shame to completely cover up, but thanks to their extensive range of shorts, the beautifully refined and unique prints become an chic outfit.
Check out these fun combos for easy mix-and-match beach-to-street style.
Try a tank
If you’re keen to mix up the cuts of your swimwear, a really great option (and my personal favourite) is the swim tank. Scoring a 10/10 for support and coverage for your workout, but also suitable for the water, THE UPSIDE swim tanks are definitely a winner.
This season, try the Lanakai Neo Tank with a Hawaiian inspired print, exposed zip at the back and bold logo at the front. It comes with matching swim bottoms AND matching yoga pants which means all bases covered.
Most of the amazing prints from THE UPSIDE run through many different pieces, making it possible to mix and match and also makes for interesting to ways to incorporate the apparel into different facets of your life, meaning you get the most out of your wardrobe. Whether it’s at work, at home or during a workout – THE UPSIDE’s got you covered for all day style and comfort.
