Last week we headed from the seas of Bora Bora straight to the seas of Cuba with Beach Riot blogger beauty Sky Naite. From getting lost in the mesmerizing streets of Old Havana, walking along the Cuban shore line under the soaring palms, & riding around town all week in a dreamy pink convertible, there was never a dull moment. In our High Summer 2017 collection Sky looked flawless as ever & gave us a taste of what it's like to be a local Cuban for a week on the stunning island. Scroll down to shop Sky's looks and be inspired to take a vacay to Cuba of your own!

With summer in full bloom & bikini season thriving, a tropical getaway was screaming our name. We followed the lovely Beach Riot babe Sivan Ayla down to our favorite destination at the stunning Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora and are already wishing we were back. Crystal clear turquoise water, gorgeous ocean bungalows, & endless rosé made for an exquisite vacay that can’t be beat. Scroll down and follow along with Sivan in our High Summer 2017 swimwear collection as she basks in the island sun, kicks back near the Pacific shores, and shares the beautiful scenes of Bora Bora.

Step onto the set of our latest lookbook photo shoot! Tucked away in a photo studio in Downtown Los Angeles, Beach Riot brought together a team of talented individuals to create the long awaited High Summer lookbook. Mega-babe and model Abby Brothers rocked our new High Summer swimwear & Fall apparel styles as she dawned her signature pout in front of the camera. Shot by the talented photog Chris Shintani and styled by the one and only Ashley Glorioso (AKA Purse n' Boots), the dream team worked to create some seriously rad content. The energy was high throughout the day as the music blasted, camera flashed, and we got to see months of hard work finally come to fruition.

With summer approaching quickly, we’ve got a new favorite four letter word: Cabo. With it’s exquisite beaches and delicious cocktails, the seaside escape has quickly made it to the top of our summer destination list. Whether your day job (and side hustle) has you needing a getaway to relax on the beach, or a night out to dance until dawn - Cabo’s got you covered. Who says a girl can’t have it all?
Two of our favorite Beach Riot babes, Sivan Ayla and Sophie Elkus, took us along on their dreamy trip to Cabo San Lucas. Sivan provided all her must have tips and tricks for a successful, and fun, stay. Start packing your bikinis!
Do - During the day I love to hop on catamaran and cruise around to the different beaches. Just being on the water with some music playing is the best way to spend your time in Cabo.
Sip - Edith’s is one of the cutest spots in Cabo for dinner or drinks. I love the ambiance and vibe. Their cucumber jalapeño margaritas are to-die for!
Eat - Flora Farm is a must when visiting Cabo. Everything is grown organically on the property, making every part of the meal delicious and fresh. They serve all their cocktails in mason jars with unique garnishes that I would never think of. I make a point of going here anytime I visit Cabo.
Stay - The Cape Hotel was the perfect home base for the week. We never wanted to leave!
See - The sunset! The rooftop bar at The Cape Hotel has a perfect view of the iconic sunset overlooking Lover’s Beach. It was our favorite spot to grab a cocktail after a day in the sun. They have live music and the décor is extra cute
Dance - The Nowhere Bar is a random little bar near the resorts perfect for drinks and dancing. I love how in Cabo you can get away with wearing a cute little cover up and sandals for a night out.

For a bride to be, it’s all in the details. From intricately hand-beaded bikini tops, to sexy plunging one pieces, Beach Riot’s new Bridal Collection will have even your wild child BFF considering ditching the single life. If you are already planning your special day, you and your bridebabes may want to abandon any prior wedding venue options that don’t include a sandy shore and turquoise water. Give the tropical sunsets a run for their money in your new bikini, because let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a destination wedding?
The entire line was dreamed up by Beach Riot founder and designer, Nicole Hanriot, as she was planning her own wedding last year. Check out the interview below with Nicole, giving a glimpse into the process that brought this exquisite line of swimwear to fruition.
What sparked your interest in creating a bridal line for Beach Riot?
I wanted to create a collection that not only was for the bride, but also for the bridal party. So many brides choose to do destination weddings, have bachelorette parties in tropical locations, and spend honeymoons on the beach. I wanted to design a collection of pieces that would make the bride, and her bridesmaid, feel and look their best on all of those occasions.
When beginning the design process, where did you look for inspiration?
I got all my inspiration from my own wedding dress shopping. There was so much detail and beautiful hand work put into each dress, so I took elements of the pieces I liked and worked with our factories to emulate the intricate beading details. All of our bridal beaded pieces are handmade in India and then handsewn in the US. Additionally, I worked with a print house and created a beautiful floral print that was the focal point in my wedding invitations. I loved it so much I used the print on my bride babe dresses and then created a whole swim collection for the bride and her bridesmaids to wear to a bachelorette party.
