When it comes to swimwear, versatility is key. Opt for swim pieces that can be mixed and matched to create different looks. Consider packing a couple of solid-coloured bikini tops and bottoms that can easily be paired with each other or with patterned pieces. This way, you can create numerous stylish combinations without overpacking. All CAHA CAPO bikini tops and bottoms are available to purchase separately, making it easy for you to mix and match.
Women’s One-piece swimsuits are not only trendy but also incredibly versatile. Look for one-piece options that can double as bodysuits or tops when paired with shorts or skirts. This allows you to transition seamlessly from the beach to a beachside café or bar without having to change your entire outfit. CAHA CAPO has a selection of elegant one pieces that are the perfect match for improvised beach-to-bar outfits. The Clara one piece in white features stunning gold ring details and pairs excellently with shorts and skirts, which are available from CAHA CAPO’s resortwear collection.
Optimise Space with Cover-Ups
Cover-ups are essential for beach vacations, providing protection from the sun while adding a touch of style. Opt for lightweight and breezy cover-ups that can be easily folded or rolled to save space in your suitcase or beach bag. Flowy kaftans, sarongs, or casual shirts make excellent choices and can be worn in various ways. CAHA CAPO’s Marina kaftan is made with the same luxury Italian fabrics as our women’s swimwear, resulting in a quick-drying cover up that is lightweight and elegant.
Consider Travel-Friendly Fabrics
When selecting swimwear for your vacation, opt for fabrics that are travel-friendly and quick-drying. Nylon and polyester blends are great choices as they dry faster and are less prone to wrinkling. Additionally, they are lightweight and take up less space in your suitcase. Choose swimwear pieces made from these fabrics for added convenience.
Mix and Match Patterns and Colours
To maximise your swimwear options, mix and match different patterns and colours. Consider packing patterned tops with solid bottoms, or vice versa. This allows you to create multiple outfits using just a few pieces. Floral, stripes, and geometric patterns are all popular choices that can be easily paired together.
Don’t Forget the Accessories
Complete your swimwear wardrobe with carefully chosen accessories. Pack a wide-brimmed sun hat to shield yourself from the sun and add a stylish touch to your beach look. Sunglasses are a must for eye protection and to add a touch of glamour. Also, include a lightweight beach tote to carry your essentials, such as sunscreen, a beach towel, and a good book.
Swimwear Care and Maintenance
To ensure your swimwear stays in top condition throughout your vacation, it’s important to care for it properly. Rinse your swimwear with fresh water after each use to remove salt, sand, and chlorine. Avoid wringing or twisting the fabric, as this can damage the elasticity. Instead, gently squeeze out excess water and lay your swimwear flat to dry in the shade.
