8 stylish options for men and women.

If you’re a fashion-conscious person who’s trying to be more sustainable in your shopping choices, summer vacation swimwear may pose a bit of a problem.

For one thing, you want to invest in durable clothing that won’t go out of style any time soon, especially items you only wear a few times a year.

But at the same time, you want to look good on the beach, and trends evolve so fast these days, that last season’s much-loved bikini or board shorts can be very unattractive when you’re packing for your next trip. .

Fortunately, this is an area where brands big and small are excelling, with eco-friendly swimwear, two-pieces and shorts offering on-trend and timeless styles for everyone, so you can shop guilt-free.
