Geek Chic Swimwear: 4 Sensational Suits That Do More Than Look Good

You know we're all about ways to combine geek with chic, and the summertime is no exception. For our first installment of Geek Chic Swimwear, we present 4 sexy swimsuits that do more than look good.


1. The QR Code Swimsuit ($120): Nerdy dudes can rejoice at having a legit excuse for snapping a photo of that hot girl at the beach.

2. UV Meter Bikini ($190): This bikini, by Canadian swimwear company Solestrom, hits the market next month, and is billed as a skin damage life saver. Built into the belt of this bikini is a UV meter that beeps to tell wearers when to head to the shade.

SmartSwim Bikini ($50): Also by Solestrom is the SmartSwim UV Bikini. This bikini uses color-changing beads to show you when it's time to take a break from the sun. It's definitely less precise than the UV meter, but is also more affordable.

Solar Powered Bikini (made to order): That's right. A bikini that doubles as a charger for anything that can charge off a USB connection! The suit is a regular bikini that has been retrofitted with small photovoltaic film strips sewn together with conductive thread. This swimsuit is not meant for serious swimmers, but for sunbathers and loungers. Custom orders are being taken now, and we hear rumors of a male version that uses solar power to keep a beer coozy cool!

Stay tuned for more geek chic swimwear in the weeks to come! If you know of any awesome suits that speak to our inner geek, leave us a note in the comments below. We love to hear from you!

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
