Tropical Escape…

As they say in some parts of Britain ‘don’t cast your clout ’til May is out’. For those that don’t know, roughly speaking it means don’t go out without a coat until June. However, we’ve been blessed with some warm days in the UK of late and whilst the only thing predictable about the British weather is that it is unpredictable, I’ve been in a frame of mind to think about my RL Summer wardrobe. This post is influenced by that and the recent releases of Spring and Summer SL Designer collections, including some great swimwear. It may not surprise you to learn that I’m the kind of girl that always accessorises for the beach and I’ve taken this to the max in the styling here. Opportunities to wear a bathing suit in SL may be limited, but if you’re planning a pool party or club night and want to make a statement, you might be interested in these looks.

I think these swimsuits work well as part of an overall outfit, but they’re also fabulous worn on their own. Neither the Little Rebel Designs or Chic Boutique bathing suits are new; I’ve owned them both for a couple of years, but still love them! Meghindo’s Touch of Sensuality is a fairly new label and the work is amazing. The designer, Meghindo Romano, has created one of the sexiest and well designed swimwear ranges I’ve ever seen in SL, together with a beautiful range of lingerie and clothing pieces. The main store is being remodelled at the moment, but you can browse the complete Meghindo range at the satellite store at Casablanca Boulevard in the meantime.  I am, of course, a huge fan of Lilyana Dryke’s creations and the Evaa Swimsuit from her label, eLDee, is typical of the brilliant work you can find at the main store. As I’ve come to expect from Lilyana, it has a quirky edge with a semi-transparent prim collar and cheeky thong back. The range of colours is so lovely, I found it hard to choose which one to feature; at just L$85, you could always splash out and buy it in more than one colour if you can’t decide either :).
