Think about it: No matter the destination, a great swimsuit and your favorite piece of denim make it into your travel bag every trip without fail during the summer. So, when two fashion-girl favorite brands team up to bring the duo together into one collection, it only feels natural. Case in point: the Solid & Striped x Re/Done collab, which just arrived with the summer-uniform pieces that are going to make packing for jaunts to the beach and road trips to the lake that much easier.
While the first collaboration between the two brands was influenced by Los Angeles, this latest collection looks to the east coast for inspiration. Within the offerings are three capsules highlighting different summer getaway spots — Montauk, Nantucket, and Woodstock — that each serve up swimwear, apparel, and denim.
"This collaboration was born out of the need to find the perfect denim to complement a swimsuit, and we feel that we've accomplished that together with Re/Done," said Isaac Ross, founder of Solid & Striped, in a press release from the brand. "The east coast has always been, and continues to be, a vital inspiration to us and we wanted to channel our favorite summer destinations when approaching this collection."
Each of the capsules in the collection captures the specific destination’s unique vibe; however, they all have a vintage feel that gives them that laid-back, relaxed attitude you want from your off-duty summer attire. Arguably the most vintage-feeling of them all, though, is the Woodstock selection, which includes everything from '70s floral printed bathing suits and souvenir tees to a $325 patched denim jacket and a crochet knit bikini for $228 (or $114 per piece).
But, if you're looking to tap into your inner surfer girl you should peek at the pieces that'll have you daydreaming of sun-filled, sandy days in Montauk. In the mix of styles you'll find zip-front denim swimwear as well as the use of neoprene in various silhouettes, from a sporty red bikini to a yellow belted wetsuit. Additionally, you can scoop up the wide-leg, white Beach Jean, $250, and wear it with the light blue wash tie-dye Montauk Hoodie, $218, for beach bonfires under the stars.
Love a more nautical look? Then the Nantucket-inspired pieces are for you thanks to their classic stripes, sailing graphics, and use of terry-cloth. You'll be all ready for the Fourth of July weekend when you snag this red and blue striped set for $176 total or this sweet tie-front white bikini that costs $178 for the set. As for the annual clambake? Throw this retro, high-rise denim short, $178, and the red and white Oxford Shirt, $168, over your suit to enjoy your favorite seafood dishes on the dock.
Continue on to see and shop styles from the collab before the first official day of summer arrives — these pieces aren't likely to stick around for long.
