Hey, rockstar: Let’s jam. We know you've got a creative block when it comes to dreaming up new riffs on your beach-getup repertoire, but there’s no need to start singing the blues. Here’s some music to your ears: We've found some chic style backup that will be in perfect harmony with your summer aesthetic, with star power you’re sure to love.


Go ahead and give a standing ovation to this velvet swimwear collection from Posh Pua. Equal parts sultry and edgy, with just the right amount of grunge, you’ll stand out on any stage—er, shore—when you’re rockin’ these beauties. Designer Julie Stone has a background in custom, handmade swimwear (she still cuts and sews the samples herself on Maui) and a love for surfing that informs many of her designs. Also source of inspo for these luxe pieces? Music, of course. With Led Zeppelin lilting through her head during the design process, selecting the rich go-to texture of the rock gods of yore seemed especially apt. She churned out these bad boys, with that dramatic-meets-luxurious mix, and got immediate fans out of us.


Stone also went for a perfectly high-drama color scheme to match the rich, silky textures to really make this moody magic sing. Look for a deep, romantic wine hue, a sizzling, gemlike blue and classic, go-with-everything black, with an iridescent velvet finish that gives off an enigmatic shifting sensation. Plus, these pieces come in the signature sexy cuts we’ve come to expect from Posh Pua, such as teeny triangle tops, plunging maillots and hip-skimming keyholes accented by flirty, fringed ties.


We have a feeling we’ll be hitting repeat when it comes to these suits.


$90–$175, poshpua.com.
