This Hamptons-inspired Swimwear Collection is Making My Backyard Summer Feel A Little More Luxurious
...one bikini at a time.
Danielle Bernstein’s fashion label, Shop WeWoreWhat just launched a swimwear and ready-to-wear collection inspired by all things Hamptons, New York. For those of us looking for anything to make us feel a little more like we're on vacation while respecting shelter-in-place ordinances, the Out East collection, printed with maps of Long Island, NY, and the Hamptons, is definitely doing the trick.The collection's warm tones, including a bright red and a pale yellow, are inspired by the Hampton's road-side farm stands and serve as a contrast against the neutral, nautical landscape. The sunset skies and authentic vintage maps of the Hamptons are printed on one-piece swimsuits, two-piece bikinis, as well as ready-to-wear dresses and cover ups. Available in pale, sea foam green and deep navy, these prints are transportive, so you can feel moments away from a bike ride through a small beach town no matter where you are for the summer.
The swimwear end of this new collection offers a range of silhouettes, from moderate coverage styles like the high waisted and faux-belted retro bottoms and bustier-inspired tops to the more minimal coverage Leigh square tops and high-cut Delilah bottoms. The collection's one-piece swimsuits also explore modern and vintage styles, each paired accordingly with either bright, bold colors or prints of maps and summer fruit. There's really something for almost everyone's style.
If you find yourself more in search of comfy clothing that is also presentable for Zoom calls and, in general, makes you feel put-together, the cover-up dresses in this collection are the move. They're ideal for throwing on while working from home and could even actually make you feel like it's the summer you expected. Fifty-percent cotton, fifty-percent rayon, the Bella Dress is airy, a bit stretchy, and unexpectedly comfortable for how cute it looks.

And if this is more your speed this summer, we recommend WeWoreWhat's linen overalls. While not a part of the Out East collection, these are a must-have for warm summer days working from home, especially if you find yourself going from outdoors to indoors frequently and need something that's breathable and versatile but still feels chic.
