Before moving to LA a few years ago, I thought I would be spending my days frolicking on the beach, Baywatch style, but truth be told once I actually started living there, I along with many locals rarely made it to the beach. Since daily life seems to takes over I love those days when you can take the time to appreciate the natural beauty and a day spent at a Malibu beach is a perfect moment.
I did however, have always admired the California beach look and essence. The laid-back vibes, effortless style and sporty chic element that can be found on any local SoCal beach, like the one I’m wearing in this post. This neoprene swimsuit is sleek and stylish with its defined black lines, and yet still sporty with the cutouts and silhouette and is by a super cool Australian swimwear brand Bondi Born. Think volleyball meets surfing meets LA’s street style braids, the combination really brought this look to life.
Neoprene swimsuits have been all the rage ever since Triangl Swimwear debuted their signature bright colored bikinis with black piping. The suits became the inspiration for so many other brands to design their own sporty yet sexy neoprene swim pieces, and the style trend is still going strong with its timeless look. I linked a few of my favourite styles in case you are looking for a new suit to enjoy the warm California weather, or for your next exotic vacation!
