Here at Kiniswimwear we are always looking forward to our next holiday… and what better place to take your Kini than beautiful Hawaii! To inspire Hawaii goers, we have come up with our Top 5 Kini travel tips!
Style your bikini up with outerwear.
Slip a light weight oversized Kimono over your bikini for a little cover up perfect for lounging around on the sand. This look is great for street-to-beach transport and the boho fringe brings a little style to basic beachwear. A dark black based kimono works great with a monochrome striped bikini to keep the overall colour palette neutral and let the floral pattern be that pop of colour that brightens up a dark look. Throw on a pair of strap sandals and sunglasses to really tie together that laid back effortless look that turns your swimwear into casual wear.
Use your bikini as an undergarment while picnicking by a lake or the shore.
You don’t always have to wear your swimwear to swim or directly on the beach for that matter. Granted it’s still by some form of water, outdoors and in the middle of summer, you can totally get away with wearing them casually. Sling a drapey beach dress over the top; low back, cut outs, thin straps, low drop v-neck, the options are endless and each one pairs perfectly with a bikini. Allow your swimwear to peek through, use it as a bralette and if the opportunity arrives for a spontaneous dip you’re set. Make it park-side cute with a beige floppy hat and jewelled sandals, all of which brings the outfit together for an adorably put together finish.
Add to your beach wanderer look with a flowy maxi.
Take a new approach to classic swimwear and the bikini-only look and pull on a floor length maxi that splits up the side and dances in the wind. This look not only provides a little extra covering for chilled winds and sunset walks, but will also have you looking more chic and put-together. Feel like a mermaid as you lounge and dip you ankles into the water, the longer and more flowy your skirt is, the better. Top this stylish look with an oversized floppy hat or fedora and large round sunglasses to add a little mystery and really bring it all together.
Here at Kini, we love seeing the amazing designs our customers come up with, and stripes are always a popular choice. It’s a print that never goes out of style. Vertical, horizontal, diagonal, black, white, rainbow – the possibilities are endless.
We recently collaborated with Ally Carey of Substance Blog to design two custom bikinis. Her first design was a classic sliding triangle style with black and white stripes – it reminds her of a bikini she adored as a teenager. That’s the great thing about Kini, you can create a bikini from scratch or recreate something you love!
The good news is, you too can design your own custom swimwear, simply by heading to our website. It doesn’t end there either. If you have fallen in love with Ally’s simple striped design like we have, you can buy it from our ready-to-wear bikini shop. We love making it easy for women to find their perfect piece of swimwear!
Remember, there’s only a few days left to support the fight against breast cancer by buying a bikini during the month of October. Buy before the end of the month and $5 from the sale will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. There’s no better time to buy a bikini from Kini Swimwear.
Happy bikini shopping!

Get streetwise and wear your bikini under a summery outfit.
Distressed denim shorts are a cult classic in beachwear, a staple item for summer and carries your on-the-beach bikini to the streets for a little side walk shopping. Throw on a drapey lace cardigan and let your bikini peek through or loosely tuck a muscle tee into the shorts for that easy breezy beachy look. Stroll down the sand to the local outdoor cafe with this look, adding a wide brim fedora and high-street style birkenstocks to complete the look making it a full outfit. Let your bikini be an addition to your outfit, rather than something only worn near the water.
