When summer officially hits, there’s no better way to celebrate than to grab your favorite Aerie Swim and head to the nearest pool. Blogger besties Jessica from My Style Vita and Cathy from Poor Little It Girl styled their go-to suits on a recent trip to South Beach.

What Inspired Jessica and Cathy’s Look:
“For our recent trip to Miami, Jessica and myself knew we wanted swimsuit that was bold, and still stylish, as we headed to the beach on our mini vacation. The open back on my one-piece suit was fun and unexpected and left me feeling not too covered up while in the sun! Jessica’s pink romper and fun tropical print bikini fit right in with the fun style of South Beach!”

What Inspired Jess’s Look:
“For my look, I wanted to finally try out the high wasted bathing suit trend. It’s so flattering on a variety of body types and I love that it’s a bikini with a modest take. In my wardrobe, I really try to focus on items that can be worn several different ways, and this bathing suit is no different. It’s about as versatile as they come! ”

“The adjustable bottoms are a perfect high waist fit, but you can adjust them to mid waist, or roll them down to a bikini cut! I have to say, they might be the most comfortable bathing suit bottoms I’ve ever worn!”

“I often have a hard time finding a bikini top that fits correctly. (Don’t you just love when that happens?) So this top was ideal because of the adjustable tie back, cups for the right amount of support, and the removable halter straps. I’m going to be living in this all summer along with these mirrored sunnies (which look expensive, but will only set you back a few bucks!) To top it all off, this adorable striped wrap is the perfect compliment– it doubles as both a cover up and a blanket to sit on!”

How to Style: a Beach Kimono

A bold beach coverup is always a good idea and the Aerie Beach Kimono is nothing short of genius. Not to mention, its fun floral print and fringe trim will compliment your solid Aerie Swim perfectly.

Katie from Little Black Blog hits the beach in her favorite Perky Triangle Wrap Bikini and Beach Kimono during her stay-cation in the Windy City.

How to Style: a Beach Kimono

Meet Katie:
“I’m Katie, the twenty-something behind the Chicago based personal style and beauty blog, Little Black Blog. I started my blog over four years ago as a creative outlet to express my love for fashion and graphic design. Since then, it’s evolved to become so much more and led me to meet other creative and inspiring women.”

How to Style: a Beach Kimono

What Inspired Katie’s Look:
“Sometimes a stay cation is the perfect little get away while living in the Windy City. I took a weekend stay downtown and escaped away to the North Avenue beach around the Lincoln Park area of Chicago. There is nothing more relaxing then sitting by a calm Lake Michigan, grabbing a cute pair of sunnies, packing my straw beach bag with a good book, and of course, mixing up my beach style with an amazing Aerie bikini.”

How to Style: a Beach Kimono

“I loved the fun zig-zag wrap top and the cute bottoms with cut outs. The best part about a solid color swim suit is I can go back to Aerie and purchase more bright tops or bottoms to mix and match my style. Sometimes too many options to pick from is a good thing!”

How to Style: a Beach Kimono “This bold beach kimono is the perfect coverup for a day at the beach or for a music filled weekend paired with the festival shortie. In Chicago, we love our music festivals in the park. A cute pair of high-waisted shorts that can double as a beach and festival essential are in a win in my book – but then again anything from Aerie is always a win. :)”

National Straw Hat Day with Blogger Ally Cog

What Inspired Alison’s Look: 
“I always prefer to keep things simple. By pairing slouchy boyfriend shorts with a knit tank I’m able to be comfortable and still feel cute. I also love that it lets the swimsuit be the statement piece! The color is bold, the crochet detail makes it anything but basic and the back gives it a hint of sexiness. And the hat totally ties everything together.”National Straw Hat Day with Blogger Ally Cog National Straw Hat Day with Blogger Ally Cog                      Get Alison’s Look: Panama Hat Beach Tank | Crochet One-Piece | AEO Denim Rolled Boy Midi

Kaylee from The Blondielocks shows us that bolder is always better with her favorite Holly Bikini Top and Wide Band Bikini BottomMix & Match Swim with The BlondielocksMeet Kaylee:

Mix & Match Swim with The Blondielocks

What Inspired Kaylee’s Look:
“Growing up on the East Coast of Canada my summers are spent very close to the ocean. There is nothing I love more than laying out on the sand in a cute bikini with salt swept hair watching the waves crash at the shore. Aerie makes heading to the beach in style this summer so easy for me. Mixing and matching my bikini is a must as not only do I have a unique look when I’m at the beach but I also get so many more bikini options!

I love the neon green color of these bottoms and especially love the thicker band on the sides that allows my bottom half to feel secure, while the scalloped detailing on that back makes me feel super feminine. The bright blue bustier style top is the perfect compliment to the neon hue, and I love the texture that the crochet detailing lends to the whole suit.”

“Using this chevron print maxi dress and sun hat as a cover-up is also a no-brainer for me when I want to hide from the suns rays. I also love that I can throw on this maxi dress and hat over my bikini and head anywhere I want in style when I am finished at the beach.
