Stop Everything: There’s a Swimwear Line Dedicated to Mermaids
Ah, mermaids — the human unicorn (which, BTdubs, are real, you know!). There’s something utterly enchanting about these mythical and lovely beings that makes us all want to be one (or emulate one, at the very least — we’re not entirely sold on that no legs bit). While there are plenty of ways to go about looking the part, from chic mermaid hairstyles and manis to this uber-cool DIY mermaid blanket, we’ve found one that just may take the cake.
Enter Margarita Mermaid: a swimwear line entirely dedicated to the magical creatures that are our #lifelonggoals.
Offering everything from seashell clutches ($13) to scaled Serafina bikini bottoms ($50), it’s every bit as awesome as you’d expect it to be — a venerable merdream come true! There’s a nice mix of one-pieces and separates, so any mermaid wannabe can look and feel her best. And best of all? Nearly everything’s under $100.
Though our favorite has to be the top pictured Selkie Seashell One-Piece ($98), what with its iridescent metallic sheen and scalloped seashell bra, we also appreciate the pearl embellishments of the Pearl Minx Nereid Top (above, $85) + Seashell Thong ($65), and this two-tone lavender and teal Melody Swimsuit ($58).
One thing’s for sure: With these on the scene, Ariel won’t be the only babe in the sea for long! Better get swimming fast, though — styles are selling out quickly (we’d expect nothing less!).
