This just happens to be the place we jetted off to for our spring photo shoot campaign! And besides an English to Spanish dictionary, these are the only other necessities you’ll need when you’re soaking up the sun on Tulum’s white sandy beaches:

  1. 1.  Lucy Dress:  Remove the liner & throw it over your bikini as a cover up or toss on a belt to pull together a look that takes you from beach to bar!
  2. 2.  New Wave Top: Play camouflage with the sea in this super-cute turquoise bikini top.
  3. 3.  Two Timer Emma Bottom: 2 in 1. You’ll love the versatility of this bikini bottom as it reverses into creamsicle for double the styling options.
  4. 4.  Sicily Sandals: Comfortable + cute, these sandals will take you from the Tulum temple ruins to dinner downtown.
  5. 5. Sunny Days Panama Hat: Protect your skin! Invest in a good hat to keep you shaded from the sun. (Coming soon!)

If you’re lucky enough to be jet-setting across the world & find yourself lying on Thailand’s Shangri-La of beaches, here’s what you’ll need:

  1. Maninikini Duet Top:  This top was made for exotic getaways. Cropped + crochet wear it like our Chloe Wrap Top.
  2. Maninikini Duet Short: The cutest pair of crochet shorts you’ll ever own (like...ever). 
  3. Pools & Palms Platinum Top + Charlie Bottom: Blend in with the scenery with our palm front meets animal print bikini 
  4. Soleil Sandal: While you’ll spend most of your time with your toes in the sand, slip on these sandals  when you’re ready to cruise downtown for dinner. 


  • From daytime strolls through town to sunset rose in Positano, here’s what to pack when visiting the Amalfi Coast:
  • 1. Sunday Funday Hat: Coming soon!
  • 2. & 3. Rocky Top + Monique Bottom: Take a dip in one of the grottos along the coastline while looking totally chic

    4.  Rimini Maxi Dress: Light + breezy, this is the perfect maxi dress to take you from sunny-beach lounging to quaint evening strolls through the city.

    5.  Iris Sandals: There’s lots to see in Amalfi!  Slip into these sandals when cruising the cute cobblestone streets of Positano or Sorrento!

  • How to Choose the Perfect Bikini

    style STYLE FILE

    If you struggle with finding the perfect suit (we all do) that fits your personal style & flatters your figure…read on! We asked Monica Wise, our Creative Director & founder of L*Space to give us her expert tips when it comes to choosing the best bikini. 

    When it comes to choosing a bikini, “It’s important keep the 3’s C’s in mind. ColorCoverage & Cut. Utilizing Monica’s 3 C’s, here’s how to break it down + pick the perfect suit. 


    Everyone knows what colors look good on them, so this is always a great place to start.  For darker skin tones, stick to bright + poppy colors.

    Monica’s color picks: Garanium, Sorbet, Sapphire + Pool are perfect hues for you!

    For olive skin beauties, stick to earth-tones & neutrals that bring out your natural glow.

    Monica’s color picks: Fern, Pebble, Ice + White

    Light + fair skin beauties, stick to dark colors such as black, charcoal + denim. Dark & rich colors always complement lighter skin tones. Plus, you can’t go wrong with black!

    Monica’s color picks:  Black, Charcoal, Denim + Pebble

    Fuller-coverage isn’t always the best option for those of us with a fuller derriere.  Instead of reaching for the suit with the most fabric, consider a cut that flatters your figure rather than hiding it. Remember…friends don’t let friends have baggy bikini butt!

    Know your cuts( or where a bikini would land along your waistline/hipline)! If you’re petite & have a small torso, look for a suit that elongates your mid-section. Monica’s pick: The Monique 
    For those who have longer torsos and want to accentuate those curves, slip into one of our high-waisted bikini bottom options. Monica’s pick: High Waist Bottoms

    Finally, if you’re looking for a universally flattering top that accommodates tiny tatas to big cha chas…slip into the JAMIE!

    2016 L*Space Swim Trend Report

    style STYLE FILE

    While every season is bikini season here at L*Space, we’re just like everyone else looking forward to the warmer weather ahead.

    With the spring season just around the corner, it’s time to get those bikini wish lists ready. Straight from the L*Space design room, here’s a list of the top 2016 swim trends coming to a beach or pool near you!


    Embrace your tan lines. This season you’ll want to flaunt off those tan lines like a badge of honor. If you love strappy, you’ll love our LEXIE, NEW WAVE + WILD ONE (along with a few new silhouettes making their debut!)


    Peek-A-Boo Cut Outs

    Show a little skin. This season we’re loving the subtle (& not so subtle) peek-a-boo cut outs. 


    Our favorite wardrobe staple crosses into swim this year. From denim color-block to lace details, expect to see denim at a beach (or pool) near you!

    High-Waisted Bikini Bottoms

    From the beaches of the Bahamas to poolside in Miami, this season we’re expecting to see a ton of high-waisted bikini bottoms. Expect to see side cut-outs, ruching and color block detailing. We especially love our VALENTINA, MARILYN + TIGRESS


    We love functionality + fit when it comes to swim because let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want to wear their favorite suit to stand up paddleboard in? This season we’re loving our new LIVELY and a few other sporty silhouettes you’ll see in our Spring/Summer 2016 line. 

    High Neckline Halter Tops

    Equal parts sporty and sexy, high necklines are one of our new favorite swim silhouettes this season. In addition to providing a little more coverage and support, we love the versatility of these suits as you can wear them with high-waisted beach pants or your favorite bikini bottom. 

    Black + White

    Black & white never goes out of style. This season, expect to see new variations of black & white combos including animal prints, color blocking + strapping details.
