The 2020 Swim Edit
(No Water Necessary)

As planet Earth tilts toward the sunny side for the next few months, we’re making the call: It’s backyard season. Peaceful gardens. Sunny patios. Local parks and beaches we can’t wait to (safely) revisit. They’re all perfect backdrops for strap-happy maillots and string bikinis—and even at-home retreats call for a cover-up. These four exclusive-to-goop pieces—each with a unique silhouette and pattern—were designed to wear around the house, over a swimsuit, or simply to pull together a sweats-less look at dinnertime. We asked four goop staffers to take them for a test spin in their own backyards. The results? Let’s just say no one’s sent theirs back yet.

GREEN RETREAT

You needn’t be poolside to sip a Paloma. DIY a backyard oasis in lightweight leather slides, classic Wayfarers, and something leg-freeing and ankle-grazing. A neutral palette of khaki, ochre, and bright white goes nicely with chlorophyll green.

SUMMER IN THE CITY

Backyard “beach” day starter kit: wrap skirt, ultrabright suit, and a portable speaker tucked into a tote you won’t have to shake sand out of later. When golden hour hits and the electrifying city heat starts to fade, that’s your cue to fire up the grill for a mini pizza party.

JUST ADD WATER

The surfer girl has it made in more ways than one. Everything from a bright-red romper to a rashguard looks on-the-low sexy, and her hobby fits perfectly with chic-meets-sporty suits. Plus, waiting for the next wave comes with built-in social distancing.

GARDEN STATE

Start a garden for the hyperlocal food system—keep it for the excuse to ditch indoor chores and spend Saturdays weeding in a bikini and Birkenstocks. After this full-body workout, you’ll be off duty, ready to dive into your striped linen toolkit for SPF and a good read.
