Make a Splash in Kore Swim

Fashion meets function poolside

kore swim!

Slogging through the whole April showers thing really dampened your spirits.

Hush now, little summer-loving babies. Here’s something to celebrate the newfound sun: Kore Swim. The line of chic-meets-sporty swimwear with a retro twist inspires us to ditch the drizzle for warmer destinations.

Local sisters Jessica (an RISD grad) and Nicole Tracy are the brains behind the line, whose flattering cuts (babelicious balconette underwire, slimming seams) and trend-meets-classic details (color blocking, high waist) meet ruching in all the right places.

Make a splash in mix-and-match tops and bottoms or striking maillots made from locally produced eco fabrics and custom handcrafted Corinthian bronze hardware. Channel Cindy Crawford (circa 1991) in Maverick’s two-tone style or unleash your inner pinup in the universally flattering Avalon.

Each is equal parts fashion (poolside provocateur) and function (stay-put surf worthy).

It’s an idea to warm up to.

Some styles are available online at koreswim.com, $88-$234. Enter code DC at checkout for 10 percent off (valid on a single purchase for one month).
