    Fall into Fashion: SwimOutlet Style Giveaway!

    As the last of summer's seashells are washing back to sea, we're packing up our beach blankets and hanging up our surfboards. Although we're sad to see the care-free days in bikinis go, we're welcoming sweater weather with open arms. Whether it's the football, all of the pumpkin-spiced goodies, the autumn leaves, the cozy candles, or the fun new fashions after a summer in cut-offs and tanks-- there's just something so refreshing about fall. 

    As swimmers, we know that we don't get to hang up our swimsuits and goggles just because the summer sun is setting (do we ever get a break?). But regardless of our countless hours in speedos and our chlorine hair tied up in knots, we can't help but fall in love with all of the fall fashions this year. Here are some of our favorites:

    Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

    We’re sad to say it, but Mercedes Benz [Fashion] Swim Week has come to an end. It was fun while it lasted—the clear, blue ocean, palm trees, the salty breeze, and how could we forget the amazing runway shows. We could talk about the Miami madness all day, but what really left us wanting more was the sneak peek of all of the hottest new trends for 2015. Miami left us with sand in our shoes, and a new love for fashion swim in our souls. Here’s what you can expect by the water in 2015:

    Stand up paddle boarding? Beach Volleyball? Jet Skiing? We’ve got you covered! Cropped Rashguards give you the ability to stay active, and the freedom to still show a little skin. Rashguards have come a long way from the solid black tops that they once were. In 2015 you will see the fitness fashionista in crops, zip ups, one pieces, and fun prints.

    Six Fun Pieces for a Wanderlust Winter

    When the days get shorter and the weather gets cooler, you have two options: you can either bundle up and face the frost, or retreat to a holiday in the sun. If you’re spending your holidays on the sand, instead of the snow, here’s some stylish items you just might want to bring with you.

    Regardless of the destination, you will need a trendy-tote to carry your holiday necessities with you. We love the versatility of the Physician Endorsed Anaconda Straw Bag. The bonus? This tote comes with a matching hat—so you can trade your beanie for a beach hat.

    Cool Gear to Warm Up on the Pool Deck

     

    As swimmers we choose to expose ourselves to extreme weather conditions in the hopes that all of our hard work will soon pay off. As we tread deeper into the colder seasons, our parkas and warm-ups become vital accessories to keep our bodies warm and insulated. Nobody wants to have chills prior to diving in for a 200-yard swim. For that very reason, the SwimOutlet.com Blog has selected a curated mix of cool (by that we mean hip) and functional products to help warm you up on the pool deck this winter.
