Buying a bathing suit this close to Labor Day is like Prince Harry playing strip billiards — it’s a brazen middle finger to common sense.
But the game changes when Seea swimwear is on the table.
Orange County-based designer Amanda Chinchelli Greer has racked up a winning collection of nylon/spandex creations that meld bold prints and color blocking with retro cuts (skirted bottoms, playsuits).
An avid surfer, Greer ensures each design can go seamlessly from beach to long board: Bikinis eschew frills to fit comfortably underneath wet suits, one-pieces have hangtag hair bands (lest you forgot your lucky scrunchie), and long-sleeved rash guards mean you don’t have to paddle back to shore every hour to reapply sunblock.
A fall/winter collection keeps you warm in an apres-surf terry cloth wrap.
It’s seriously on cue.
