In tandem with the May 2 return of its Ditch Fridays party, the Palms Pool & Dayclub has teamed with Bikini.com on a pop-up shop. Open Friday and Saturday afternoons poolside, the shop will showcase some of the online lifestyle destination's hottest swimwear from designers around the world, and pool-goers can rely on a fashion-savvy Bikini Concierge to recommend looks for all shapes and attitudes.
Need a hat, tote, cute coverup or statement jewelry to make that suit pop? Bikini.com's open-air boutique has you covered. It will even deliver suits to guests on property within 60 minutes. Once you pick a style, why not pair it with a signature drink? Bikini.com director Gina Nguyen shared three favorite designs this season, and Palms cocktail server Lara Giltinan came up with refreshing echoes from the poolside bar menu.
Luli Fama Coral Crystal
With a push-up halter and a tie-side, Brazilian-style scrunch bottom, this bikini glitters with tiny crystals attached to juicy splashes of coral and aqua. Nguyen says: "Luli Fama bikinis make me feel sexy and stylish with the right amount of eye-catching detail. The vibrant hue and bold print is festive and sophisticated." Giltinan pairs: Mango Tango (Absolut Mango, Malibu Red, pineapple juice, orange juice, citrus soda) "Fun, fruity and smooth with yellow and orange hues that pair perfectly with this suit."
The flashy pattern hits at the hip and up the back in a trio of ties, adding interest and edge. And an underwire makes the front view sleek to go with the sweet crisscross. Nguyen says: "The double-wrap detail on this Solkissed bikini is so chic. This is a music festival must-have!" Giltinan pairs: Strawberry Mimosa (Cîroc Red Berry, strawberry, Perrier-Jouet) "The casual but flirty cocktail that's a must-have after a long night on the town."
Mikoh Underwater Sea
The Uluwatu top's deep scoop neck flaunts curves while the Lanai bottom's looped detailing and low cut flatter hips and abs. Nguyen says: "Mikoh's signature designs are unique, seamless, hardware-free and cut for a flatters-every-figure fit. I love the abstract blues of this bikini—it looks amazing against your summer tan." Giltinan pairs: Blueberry Mojito (Bacardi Wolf Berry, blueberries, mint leaves, fresh lime) "Satisfies the cravings for a refreshing but mouthwatering cocktail for the taste buds of all guests."
