It’s time to start thinking about what to wear while soaking up the sun at your favorite Las Vegas dayclub. Finding the right swimsuit is like finding a perfect pair of jeans—it takes a lot of searching, but once you know, you know.

Before you start filling up your online bikini shopping cart, take some inspiration from the servers at Encore Beach Club, who will be sporting exclusive Luli Fama designs—a Miami-based brand frequently featured in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue—come Friday’s opening day. “Many different philosophies go into picking the right suit,” says Ryan Jones, director of operations at Encore Beach Club and Surrender Nightclub. “We need to make sure it is something that is going to be durable and can stand up to the weather, party atmosphere and use.”

This season’s swimsuits stay true to the Encore Beach Club aesthetic—sleek, sexy and done in the club’s signature colors. This year, the staff has three top options to choose from—a black and gold or red and gold diamond-printed bikini, or a sportier red top with gold trim—each paired with a red or black bottom. Given the recent upswing in workout wear, the sport top is EBC’s most on-trend for 2016, with similar styles seen all over the resort-wear runway. As a collection, the three suits signify a playful sophistication.

The colors are exclusive to EBC, so the staff can stand out from the crowd, Jones says. While you can’t get these specific suits in stores, you can browse hundreds of dayclub-ready designs at or in person at Nordstrom.
