While we rely on dreams of tropical vacations to keep us going through the cooler months, the thought of shopping for fresh swimwear fills us with dread (thanks, holiday cookies/cakes/pies!). According to Maria Dobrzanska Reeves—casual surfer, swimwear designer and overall babe—finding spectacular bathing suits doesn’t have to be painful. Case in point: The Marysia Swim resort 2015 collection. The expert edit of strategically ruffled and scalloped bikinis, semi-sheer maillots and polka-dot cover-ups has all the makings of the ideal get-out-of-dodge packing list. Plus, the durable, stretchy fabrication and thoughtful design elements (convertible bottoms, detachable straps) provide a comfortable fit and sleek silhouette. Here, the 5 pieces we’re picking up before our next beach jaunt.
