Whether you are booking trip after trip this summer or just have that one special occasion you are looking forward to, I have your itinerary for shopping for swimsuits and sundresses.

Naturally, Kylie Jenner wowed her followers in a from Karl Lagerfeld’s Spring 1995 collection for Chanel. In Lagerfeld’s fairytale-like style, his original suit fell in the brighter color range with sparks of crystal blue, accessorizing the two piece ensemble with his floral stamp in the form of a headband that the model wore on the catwalk. Jenner stayed true to herself in a midnight black color with an identical cut and metallic studs.

We are seeing less trendy swimsuits at the forefront of all things beach and pool attire. It is more about finding those once-in-a-lifetime, shockingly different gems.

We talked a lot about swimsuits — which we will be living in in just a few months — but we also need to talk about sundresses and their high appeal. No matching needed, no pants to unbuckle, no need to feel underdressed or overdressed.

Treading back to the we are living vicariously through right now, Kylie Jenner also packed a from the ‘90s. A black bodycon enhanced with yellow and orange florals seems like a celebration of summer getting closer and closer.

Again, modern, more accessible brands are coming up with their own versions of these high fashion, brand name pieces that are in museums and bought only by consumers like Jenner.

Peppermayo, an Australian clothing brand, offers of the collection for average, everyday consumers.

Then we have Grainge’s collection and Elsa Hosk, a super model and founder of Helsa, with radiant designs of their own that make us feel invincible in the summer heat. You could make the your own, which spawned from Hosk’s artistic direction. Another option could be from Grainge’s playfully timeless capsule like the . The model has sixteen different categories for you to choose from, including !

No matter what your plans are this summer, you are all set to find your seasonal wardrobe!
