I really enjoyed playing dressup in the closet of Anisha Lalani, the creative genius behind the swimwear label Blue Ink Beachwear. We showed you how to expand the use of swimwear beyond the pool and the beach. With a little clever styling, you can take your swimwear to the boardroom, for a night out, and even make a fashion statement while lounging by the pool. Three looks down, I begged the girls to do a fourth. A boho chic at heart, I wanted to extend our play into this genre. It is really interesting to see how very different each of our 3 looks turned out to be!
Anisha teams her Ibiza Oro swimsuit from the Blue Ink Beachwear collection with a heavily embroidered Indian lehenga skirt. To add an Indo-Western twist, she teams it with a sequined jacket and a bold statement necklace.
Boho Gets Sophisticated
Rosa wears one of my favorite swimsuits from the Blue Ink Beachwear collection. This is the Athens swimsuit featuring a very Frida-inspired skull print. To accentuate on the boho element, Rosa wears a chunky silver Afghani necklace, a pile of assorted bangles and distressed denims. The overall look gets a clean, sophisticated finish with the addition of a long well-cut jacket. If the denims are swapped for formal pants, I bet this look would work just as well as work gear too!
Tezzy Goes Tribal
I am wearing the Blue Ink Beachwear Zanzibar swimsuit. I love the mix of African and leopard print on this piece, and got pretty adventurous pairing it up with an equally bold pair of African printed palazzos. The clash of prints somehow manage to work together, and the look is polished off with a tribal print headband and a very trendy fringed belt.
Which of these three looks are you leaning towards? 🙂
