All About Our Essentials Collection

While you may know us for our original & unique prints, we also have classic styles that are designed to stand the test of time. Our Essentials Collection is inspired by our mission to make sun protection simple & stylish. Easily incorporate sun safety as a part of your routine with this collection of wardrobe staples. 


Our tried & true! The pieces in our Essentials Collection are exactly what they sound like: essentials. From elegant swimwear to versatile dresses, these pieces are a staple in any wardrobe.

Unlike our limited-edition seasonal collections that come and go, our Essentials Collection is filled with styles that we keep for years to come. Every year we still freshen up the collection by adding new styles as we remove some older ones.
