Your lifestyle, your quirk
Memorial Day is coming up, and if you’re in a great climate, odds are you will be hitting the beach or a pool as part of your celebration. In a perfect fashion world, you have all your gear by now, but it’s likely you just might be frantically searching the local mall or doing some late night shopping on the net. No pressure, but you better get to it with less than two weeks to go.
A swimsuit you feel great in is a must, but it’s debatable if beach cover-ups are equally urgent. You can always wear an oversized t-shirt, like yours truly, but I agree it’s nice to have a pretty cover-up, especially if it’s a special occasion or you’re going on vacation. If you’re still looking for a pretty cover-up and perhaps even your 2012 suit, check out the line Zimmermann.
Zimmerman, a line of swimwear, cover-ups, and ready to wear is the product of Australian sisters Nicky and Simone Zimmermann. The Zimmerman sisters launched their label in 1991, and over the years, they have made a name for themselves, mostly among the jet-set beautiful people.
Now don’t let the fact you’re not appearing in People magazine on a regular basis stop you from trying on a few and possibly adding something from this line to your wardrobe. Their prices may be a little higher than you would like, but if you have the body to work one of their bikinis or one-piece swimsuits and can swing it, I think you should go for it. A swimsuit is one of the garments in your wardrobe that you should feel good in and should fit well. Their suits are out of my league, so if you’re like me and a purchase is too much of a splurge, give their cover-ups a try. If all else fails, you can always use this luxury line for a little inspiration and look for affordable lines that might be similar in style.
Like all of the other garments in their line, Zimmerman’s cover-ups are made with quality fabrics and are right in step with several of the current hot trends in fashion. Check out cover-ups in sheer fabrics, bright colors and draped detailing, or a darling floral romper. These cover-ups are so lovely, several of them can do double duty as pretty day or sexy nighttime dresses. If you’re going on vacation, you can go straight from the water to the party in one of these styles. If you decide to wear one of these cover-ups alone instead of over your swimsuit, be sure to wear something underneath, like a pretty lace slip or some nude undergarments for a pretty but modest effect. All you need are some fabulous sandals a few pieces of jewelry and you’re ready to go.
