Match your swimwear to your destination

by Karen Louis May 13, 2019

Just like you, your Mavele swimwear has a personality! Chic beaches on the outskirts of the city may be the ideal location for a classic bikini set paired with a metallic sarong and towering wedges - but this isn't the best option for a casual seaside town! Are there any cultural norms to consider when buying swimwear for your exotic getaway? And what will look most enticing with an azure blue backdrop, courtesy of a sexy hotel pool? Not only does Mavele have the answers to all of your questions, we have the perfect swimwear too!


One of our fave destinations! This jet setter hotspot not only guarantees pool-worthy weather, it's also the perfect place to pull out your best bikini. Most of the tourist beaches are privately owned by hotels and resorts and as a resident of one of them you're free to wear the same swimwear you would on any other trip. This ultra-modern location is a dream for glamour-loving girls and offers a great backdrop of impressive buildings. Our new Noir collection features a romantic floral print in black and white with subtle touches of colour - great for posing in front of glistening pools surrounded by steely skyscrapers. The Noir Peony bikini is particularly sophisticated and is our top pic for Dubai.

Sun-soaked promenades and party beaches are what this playful city is known for. Right next to Cuba, the Bahamas, Cancun and the Dominican Republic, this party-goer's haven is a cultural melting pot! Put your festive foot forward and join the fun in a fierce animal print and vibrant colour. The Art Deco architecture of South Beach is bursting with multicoloured pastels, so match them with a cream or yellow bikini to create some Insta-worthy shots! Another reason we love this city is its body-positive attitude! We're all about being ‘Distinctly you' and we can't get enough of celebrating our individual uniqueness along with the locals! Pack some bright, solid options like the Sunshine Fox triangle bikini but make sure you've got the printed Tribal Toucan bandeau set on hand come cocktail hour!

This is one of the best British beaches, boasting soft yellow sand and a widespread seafront that's great for escaping the crowds. It's an easygoing destination, with an elegant edge. The super- exclusive suburb of Sandbanks is just around the corner - which means you can make this trip whatever you want! Pack the chic all-black Midnight Cobra bikini and the playful Leopard Whipray set - it features a fun animal print that's easily made glam with a luxurious coverup if you do head to the high-end hotels. This also means you'll be able to mix and match - a patterned top with a solid bottom. Genius!
