Trikinis Are Here

Trikinis Are Here

We may not be able to get to the lake, river, or pool just yet, but many of us are dreaming about when we can once again stick our toes in the sand and water. But when we’re able to take trips to the beach or pool, we’ll still have to stay safe and one Italian designer is doing her part to make it fashionable, too. Tiziana Scaramuzzo, owner of Elexia Beachwear, has created a bikini with a matching face mask, and she calls it the “trikini.”

The mom and swimsuit designer was forced to stop production on her bikini line when the coronavirus first hit Italy, so she and her family started making face masks with the material she had on hand. She joked with them about the sets being suitable for post-lockdown beach visits and posted photos of the trikinis on Facebook. After she got positive feedback on them, the trikinis were a go.

It seems people like the idea of coordinating their bikini and face mask and now orders are rolling in for them. That’s a good sign that people are remembering what’s really important, even in fashion – safety first.

Just remember that SPF, or you’ll have some interesting tan lines.
