Molly Brown’s Fashion Fridays – Pick of the Week – Pily Q 2015 Swimwear

Greetings my dear ladies!

 

Friday is here and that can only mean one thing, apart from the much anticipated weekend fun of course!

 

It also means Fashion Fridays is here and this week, we come with not one, not two but three picks of the week!

 

Why you may ask?

 

Well, take a look at them and ask yourselves, can you really resist these gorgeous, to-die-for bikinis!

 

From the 2015 Collection of Pily Q Swimwear, we have picked 3 of our most favorite looks (after a lot of arguments and voting!), to help you upgrade your swimwear wardrobe and add these exquisite pieces from the 2015 Collection to it.

 

Our first pick of the week is the Gypsy Halter & Gemini Teeny Bottom. The halter is high neck with a racerback front, which is a trend that is slowly catching on and we love it! Collar bones are sexy and should be shown off often! The bottom is simple, with a matching print and strappy details on the sides. The Gypsy halter is available in solid colors too!

The second pick of this week is this strapless one piece beauty. In a metallic shade, this one piece has a completely strapped out back, and looks hot as hell. Metallic colors look deathly beautiful on the beach, at the pool and just about anywhere!

The third and final pick is this delightfully dazzling cover-up, the Madagascar Poncho. In pristine white, this poncho will look good with any swimsuit. Whether in bright prints or solid tones, this cover-up will make you the talk of the town.

 

 

Well, these are our top picks from the 2015 Pily Q Collection. This is the right time to get down and evaluate your swimwear wardrobe and take out the old, boring pieces and add the newest, sexiest pieces from the 2015 Collections at Molly Brown’s. We have 2015 pieces of Vitamin A, L Space, Melissa Odabash and Sun Kitten Swimwear in stock at our website! So sit down in front of your laptop or get out and dash to one of our stores and get ready to rock the next beach season and be the most sexy, gorgeous girl on the beach!

 

Until then, keep it stylish ladies 😉

Cozy Up!

December always flies by, and this year is no different. Is it 12/17 already?? The days are rainy here in Southern California (and then nights freezing!) so forgive us for dwelling on how to transform our swim wardrobe into winter-appropriate attire. Here are a few we’ve already mentioned to start, but these will work just as well!

1. Two wonderfully cozy, knit coverups by ODABASH– and neutrally toned too! Dress these up, down, during the day, night. The possibilities are endless!

2. Comfy loungewear by FOX. Right: Pride Zip Sweater, Left: Dreamer Pants

Comfortable loungewear — necessary during all seasons. Though we warn you– if you fall asleep in these, it may be difficult to get up and out of them. Ever.

XOXO – Molly

An Unexpected Print.

Every year we’re on the look out for what the swimwear season’s “it” color will be. This year it seems like pale blues and poppy apricot and citrus shades are taking the cake, but some pretty amazing prints have surfaced, not to mention unique, and are sure to become major statement pieces. Also still on point with the summer brights trend!

From left to right: Preppy Guatemala by DESPI & Artisan Flirt and Candy by VITAMIN A

The geometric print on this Despi bikini is a punchy contrast to its feminine ruffled edges and the Artisan dye on the Vitamin A is is simply gorgeous. When thinking of prints, we normally envision one all-over, so the dye on this suit was distinct and immediately eye-catching!

From left to right: Miami by ODABASH & Sugary by SALINAS

The salmon-colored fish-scaled suit by Odabash is a refreshing take on animal print. Tired of the ol’ leopard or serpent? Who knew fish scales could be so sophisticated? (Also comes in a pretty violet)! The landscape print on the Salinas suit is so unique, none of them are even alike! Each sandy beach design on every suit is cut individually, so what you get is truly one of a kind.

XOXO Molly <3

Hats Off to Summer.

This summer is looking to be a sunny one, and nothing says you’re ready to battle that bright light in style like a timeless hat. Not only do they protect your face from harmful rays, they also make the perfect topper to any swimwear ensemble.

Melissa Odabash’s straw hats have become some kind of phenomenon, a must-have favorite among hat lovers everywhere. Classic and timeless silhouettes that can be worn for seasons to come. The Elle has that rustic charm that’ll make you feel like you’re on vacation on all season long.

Never before have we seen a more responsible hat-maker than the beatiful Greenpacha. These hats are hand-woven and a portion of the proceeds ultimately return to the village where they’re crafted. The wider brim and natural palm these hats are woven from will become summer staples that you won’t want to leave the house without.

XOXO Molly <3

Fit Guide: A Little Somethin’ Extra

So you’ve realized the Brazilian bottom is not for you, but you’re not looking for full coverage either, just the perfect moderate bottom… Well, take your pick!

The great thing about a moderate bottom is that it’s safe — you can rest assured that it’ll be appropriate for any and all occasions, whether you’re chasing down little ones on the beach or vacationing with the in-laws.

Fit Guide: Tops

Greetings from 2012! A new year, a new you… Every New Year, after over indulging in holiday feasts and treats, we say we’re going one size down in EVERYTHING and never eating again! But really, we’re just kidding. We love our bikini bods! And think all shapes and sizes should be celebrated. Today we begin our guide to finding the perfect bikini, top to bottom — one that flatters your body and shows off your best assets!

Today we aptly begin with TOPS. Somehow, no matter your size, the grass-is-always-greener mindset always seems to plague us, meaning the bustier ladies curse their neck problems and wish they could wear a bandeau, while the smaller chested women yearn to ditch the old triangle top and finally fill out a sexy balconette.

Here are a few rules of thumb and some suggestions to consider when looking for a top that will support a larger bust:

1. The Fixed Top

Left to right: Paris by Odabash, Marquesas by Caffe

An underwire is going to be ideal…we know, you’ve heard. But what also works great are these “fixed” tops. They are named so because they are fixed along the bottom (as opposed to sliding) and work wonders where a mere string just won’t cut it.

2. The Unexpected Molded Cup

Left to right: Bel Air Bandeau by Vitamin A, Glam it Up Top by L*Space

The secret to why we think this particular bandeau can work for bigger busts, and also the reason why we’re absolutely smitten with it, is in the genius construction of the bandeau itself. It’s got ONE molded panel across the front (instead of two separate cups) that just lifts, supports and shapes like no other bandeau. Plus it’s got a removable neck strap, incase you need the extra support.

Contrastingly, the molded cups on this white top are separate. While this might not fit as snugly as the bandeau, the sexy cleavage the separate cups allow for might be worth the trade. The cherry on top is that you control the fit, as it has a functioning tie, front and center. Since it doesn’t have any push-up built in, you get the shaping and contouring of the cups without being put over the top. (This one can also fall under the “Fixed” category above!)

3. Over the Shoulder Straps

Left to right: Paulina by Charlie, Montauk by Acacia

Understandably, pressure and tension pulling at your neck while you’re trying to relax at the beach — not fun. So these are great simply because the straps go over the shoulder instead of tying at the neck.

Stay tuned for what to do if you’ve got the exact opposite problem and we’ll show you what styles work best for enhancing the bust!

XOXO Molly

Nude Attitude.

Hot pinks and neon brights are fun for summer, but sometimes toning it down can be fiercely sexy. We think, when paired with the right details, understated neutral shades and chic nude color schemes can make a bold and sophisticated statement. See below to find out what we mean!

Shimmer fabric and sleek gold slide accents in the Farrah by CHARLIE

Chic and sexy link hardware on the Angel and Catwalk by L*SPACE

Ultra soft terry cloth and lace up detail on the Dora by ODABASH

When wearing neutral shades, keeping the silhouette simple and streamlined is key to the effortlessly-pulled-together look. As an alternative to the piling on of adornments, subtler details like fabric choice, elegant hardware, sleek cuts and design add dimension to the simple color palette and keep these natural beauties from feeling overworked.

Nude, coincidentally, resembles skin (go figure), so double-takes may occur. But HEY, we said sophisticated and sexy. True to the Molly Brown’s style! 😉

XOXO Molly
