With summer approaching, it’s time to embrace swimsuit season, whether you’re lounging in front of the air conditioner or eagerly awaiting warmer days. Although we may be spending more time indoors, there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy wearing a swimsuit in the comfort of your own home.

In summer 2023, there are exciting new swim trends to experiment with, although a classic one-piece will always remain timeless.

These two items are no longer available for purchase as they were bought last year. However, they can serve as inspiration for enjoying outdoor activities in the comfort of your own backyard or in a distant location once it is safe to travel again.

When staying at a five-star hotel, it is always better to be slightly overdressed than underdressed. In this particular case, I decided to vary my outfits based on the purpose of my stay.

Floral Swimsuits

If you find yourself in a beautiful setting, such as a large pool and Italian-style gardens, it’s a great idea to choose swimwear with floral patterns. This will complement the atmosphere and enhance your enjoyment of the sunny weather. Opting for fabrics that feature floral designs will add a stylish touch to your outfit.

I chose a variety of floral patterns for my swimwear, ranging from a blue one-piece to an emerald green swimsuit.

Rash Guard

The long sleeve rash swimsuit is a great option for those who want to protect their skin from sunburn. It provides coverage for the arms, making it an ideal choice for individuals who prefer not to apply sunscreen.

A rash guard, also referred to as a rash vest or rashie, is a type of athletic shirt that is typically made of spandex and nylon or polyester materials. Apart from providing comfort and flexibility during physical activities, rashguards also offer protection from the sun by having a designated Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF). Moreover, they offer a slight defense against jellyfish stings and are commonly worn underneath wetsuits to prevent chafing.
