As you all know, the 2015 swimwear season is about to be in full swing and designers across the globe are releasing their highly anticipated collections. We've already seen such a huge response to 2015 Agua Bendita and Maaji collections, as expected. But it's time we focus a bit less on the veterans and a bit more on the newbies. By newbies we mean no disrespect, of course. We're actually quite thrilled to have a few NEW brands to add to the mix. Some favorites in the California area are heading down to sunny Miami, and we want to be the first to show you why these collections are so effortlessly cool. Get stoked for Beach Riot Swimwear.

It's true that some of the most comfortable outfits I've ever worn involve cute yoga pants. For me, yoga pants go far beyond just being used for a yoga class. Have you ever had those mornings, especially on the weekends, where you need to run errands and jeans just aren't doing it for you? I have those moments waaaay more than I'd like to admit. That's why I have a plethora of women's activewear lining my closet, some for actual workouts and some just for those days that denim ain't a friend.

It's no secret that one of the top trends of the 2015 swimwear season involves mixing and matching. In fact, that's one of the key components we considered when designing our 2015 Orchid Label collection. Isn't it great, when you have a few pieces of swimwear to create multiple combinations and outfits? Or what about when you're larger up top and smaller on bottom and need to create a combination of brands or sizes to fit just right? Mixing and matching prints can create a whole new style realm from a few simple pieces. Purchasing swimsuits that come as separates can help create the perfect swimsuit for your occasion-specific needs. Prints on top and solids on bottom? Or how about the ever-versatile black wrap top, paired with a printed bottom? Mixing and matching swimsuits is the ultimate way to create an entire beach wardrobe out of just a few simple pieces. Orchid ... read more!

Despite being a hectic time in the industry, there are a few take-aways that we are dying to discuss, like for example how Mara Hoffman Swimwear was again, the talk of the town.
