Today I’m so excited to be partnering up with Express to bring you my very first swim look of the season and spread the word about their amazing new swim line! Express has long been a go-to for me to shop staples like denim and classic tops, and now they’ll also be a regular for me every spring when I start shopping for beach and pool wear.

I’ve been wanting a fun and unique one piece for a while, so when I spotted this vibrant red swimsuit from the Express Swim Collection, I was so excited! From the v-neck front and 90’s-style high-cut bottoms to the low-cut, strappy back, I instantly fell in love with it (also – it totally remind me of the suits from Baywatch!) It’s a perfect staple vacation for a yacht or deep sea fishing trip (hey, a girl can dream!) and while I won’t be headed anywhere beachy until this summer, it’s also perfect for a relaxing day by the pool, which is where I debuted it.

Express not only has amazing swimwear selections, but they also carry the perfect beachy accessories. To style this suit, I wanted to go for a menswear-inspired look, so I started with an Express classic button up (I ordered a size up in a medium so it would fit loosely) and tied it around my waist. I paired this adorable boater hat from Express for extra protection for the sun (I still haven’t gotten my base tan yet, okay?) and these bright blue reflective Ray Ban sunnies. I added a little flair with some cool girl jewelry, like this gold collar necklace, also from Express. I finished off the look with a bang in these amazing gladiator sandals from Express (just $60 – so snag them if you don’t already have a pair!)

In case you’re looking for some unique swim options that won’t break the bank – Express will become one of your new favorites. From fun, tribal prints to bright, strappy numbers, they have a wide selection to fit every girl’s style, and I’ve linked more of my favorites below.
