Just For Show

While there are plenty of swimsuits that are great for, well, swimming, there are others that make great statement pieces on those days when we want to lounge around without any intentions of stepping foot in the water. Whether you're going to a pool party, a BBQ, or just catching some rays for a tan, these embellished poolside suits enable you to sparkle and shine in any situation.

A Las Vegas local, Ella Mental, creates sexy, shimmering suits that combine fabrics with metals and stones in order to render an intricate and sophisticated look. Her black and gold Xanthe suit features patchwork detailed sewing on the triangle-shaped top and large gold-toned rings. Long strings taper at the hips and neck, complete with gold metal and rhinestone cord stoppers. Equally as inventive and seductive is the bright blue Oceana suit, which gives a girly spin to this sexy swimwear. The keyhole design incorporates six hardware jewelry pieces composed of large teardrop rhinestones surrounded by mini clear rhinestones. You may not want to get wet, but you can still channel the effects of a glistening watery surface with this suit's gorgeous color and design. If you want to add a sexy and sparkling poolside piece to your swimwear wardrobe, start with Ellamental Swimwear.

Other brands have caught onto this trend and reeled it into their own collections. Poolside Collection is one such brand that specializes in luxury swimwear that aims for fashion over function. This is evident in their pink bikini with a ruffled bust and crystal detailing on the top and bottoms. Another suit, a beige one-piece with a halter top and a plunging neckline, features large and small crystals around the neck and hip areas. These suits are sure to make a sparkling impression!

BeachCandy Swimwear is another sweet collection that offers this delicious trend. Adorning each suit with Swarovski crystals, pearls, shells, and semi-precious stones, this brand knows how to generate a one-of-a-kind creation that will transform you into a show-stopping phenomenon. Their suits are classy and extravagant, like the sleek black two piece with an embellished neckline or the purple strapless two-piece with crystal detailing on the chest and sides.

There are plenty of options to explore when it comes to luxury swimwear. While these sexy, chic suits may be best kept dry, they are sure to make a splash at any poolside function!
