The Ischia Toga Maillot is a one-shoulder swimsuit that is uniquely sophisticated. This one-piece is so versatile it can also double as a bodysuit!

 

Why we love it: you don’t always see asymmetrical suits and this one is done right with flattering ruching at the bustine.

 

Best body type: this swimsuit will look great on all figures.

 

Pack it for: resort destinations or cruises where there’s ample opportunity for poolside lounging.

Summer Soiree Tips

With summer in full swing, get-togethers with friends and family will be a regular thing. Keep things fun and healthy by having fresh fruit on hand - that way, nobody will feel guilty about having a sweet treat! Our three favorite ways to keep fruit on the menu:

 

  1. Fruit-infused Water - serve refreshments with a twist! Try sparkling water with citrus slices and pop in some berries to add extra color.

  2. Fruit-in-Fruit - get sculptural and reuse melon rinds as serving bowls, this looks festive and guests will admire your creativity.

  3. Fruit Salad - this simple dessert can be endlessly tweaked. The secret is to use seasonal, ripened fruit, toss with a bit lemon juice to maintain freshness and if you’d like, go ahead and drizzle honey.
