Grab some reef-safe SPF and your fringed beach umbrella because WE MADE SWIMSUITS!
The Alo x Frankies Bikinis collab is kind of a dream-come-true for our summer plans because there’s updated staples, showstopper styles, and wear-all-day one pieces we’re already envisioning for our frolics along the shores and the streets.
Alo is all about inspiring movement, and because this sunshiney season beckons in lots of swimsuit-required activities, it was time we made some kinis to accompany you. And not just any kinis. We’re talking an epic swimsuit collection with the help of Frankies Bikinis, a brand we’ve had major friend-crush vibes on for a while.
The sea-salt loving soul behind Frankies Bikinis, Francesca Aeillo, created her brand on the foundation of luxe performance and fashion-forward design — a concept we’re super familiar with at Alo.
We’re honored to collaborate on this collection with the Frankies Bikinis team, and WARNING: these pieces that are going quicker than you can say aquamarine.
Whether you’re hanging poolside with a tropical bevvy in-hand or taking it out on the town pre- or post-water activity, we’ve got styles for it all so let’s dive right in!
In case you thought a tennis skirt was only for the court, we have good news to share: tennis skirts are for literally everywhere. We all love a classic bikini top and cut-off short look for getting around before and after our time spent on the water, but let’s spice it up this year with some pleats. For a comfy-cute ensemble welcome at follow-up happy hours and pre-pool brunches, pair a pleated tennis skirt with any of our suits (we’re especially loving the Croft One Piece and Tatum Top).
YOU DEF WOKE UP LIKE THIS
You already know the look-like-you-just-threw-on-your-boyfriend's-miscellaneous-shorts look is so in right now, and summer 2021 is no exception. Especially when topped with an Alo x Frankies Bikinis top plus a peekaboo of the Tia or Katarina Bottoms. We’re loving these suits paired with the Accolade Sweat Shorts or It Girl Pants for an “I woke up like this” vibe ideal for a quick watermelon and beachside bevvies run.
These kinis are built to handle the salt — and that means those salty summer sweats just as much as it means those glorious ocean dips. Pair the Tatum Top with your fave Airbrush Leggings, and some Alo Boxing Gloves for a movement-approved fit that’ll get your heart rate (and the heart rate of the handsome fella behind you at health bar) UP.
A matching one-piece and bucket hat? Our new summer uniform. The iconic Croft One Piece features adjustable straps and thin ties for an ultra-flattering waistline that wears perfect solo or paired with cargos, linen pants, or a tennis skirt for a splashy street look that’s so luxe and so iconic.
If we had another way to describe summer 2021 fashion apart from the Alo x Frankies Bikinis collab, it’d be crochet. Whether a skirt, a dress, a sarong, or any mixture in between, the world is loving it and so are we. Crochet is well-respected wherever it goes, so whether you’re headed to mingle with a summer fling or check out the sunset surf, a kini and crochet will be your new go-to.
Grabbing a towel and chunky jewelry to let your new kini shine? Throwing on a skirt and cardigan for a lakefront barbeque? Let that inspo flow — tag @Alo and show us how you’re making a splash in the Alo x Frankies Bikinis Collection all summer long!
