There’s only one thing better than discovering a gorgeous new fashion brand – and that’s discovering that making a cheeky new purchase or two will be supporting a great cause!
Yoox recently teamed up with Australian brand We Are Handsome to create a collection of swim and gym wear that supports the Great Barrier Reef Foundation. The Great Barrier Reef is one of the seven natural wonders of the world and the Foundation helps to protect and conserve the Reef and its habitat. With every item sold from the collection, Yoox will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Foundation in order to help recover some of the damage endured by the Reef, including that from bleaching and other associated impacts from climate change.
Today I’ll be sharing all six limited edition designs from the YOOX Loves The Reef collection, available now. The items come in a beautiful navy and white sea/reef-inspired design that is sure to turn a few heads at the beach or gym! I absolutely love this kind of patterned design, especially on swimwear as I find it so flattering on my fair skin, and it also looks great with darker skin tones – an all round winner!
Starting from the swimwear, the collection consists of two different styles of swimsuits. The first is a deep-v plunge style swimsuit with thin straps and a low back. If you prefer a more traditional style of swimsuit, there is also a more classic one-piece design with thicker straps and a low back in the same reef-inspired pattern.
The collection also includes two very different bikini designs. The first is a classic halter-neck triangle bikini style with tie-side bottoms, whilst the second design has a more sports-luxe vibe with a high neck top, complete with mesh and zip detailing. This is probably my favourite design from the whole collection!
If you’re looking to add some style to your gym wardrobe, the t-shirt and leggings that are part of this collection are definitely worth checking out! Although I wouldn’t personally style these together, the t-shirt would look great worn with a pair of plain black leggings to add a pop of colour to your outfit, whilst the leggings are great for adding some style to a plain black or white vest!
