Some Like it Hot
Summer is definitely my favorite month and when the weather outside becomes hot and sticky there’s no place I’d rather be than the beach. It’s the only place in the world where you can throw away your cares with abandon right along with your clothes! Any girl worth her lychee mojito would gladly exchange her make-up, stilettos and cocktails dresses for a weekend of being kissed by the sun, sand between her toes and a flattering swimsuit she could wear from coffee to cocktails. And what to wear at the beach that would make you feel glammed up even with fabric barely-there? Por Do Sol, of course.
“I first designed a few pieces for myself and when friends and strangers started asking me where I could buy it, I decided to start making swimwear as a creative outlet,” says Wendy Puyat, designer of Por Do Sol and the perfect representative for her brand. “Then when I got a few leads in stores abroad I decided to give it a try as a business.” Now with stockists in Hong Kong, Dubai, Beverly Hills and Bali, Por Do Sol offers beach bunnies stylish, sexy solutions for all the issues that beleaguer her: good coverage, yet shows the right amount of skin without being OTT; something she can feel good in and let’s not forget to mention they look hot for all these scenarios: A) sipping champagne on a yacht, B) tanning on a lounge chair on the beach and C) bumping into your ex-boyfriend.
Wendy’s latest collection has so many drool-worthy pieces (worn here by the gorgeous Jessica Kienle), it would be hard to choose just one. “I have a new collection of mostly satin neoprene as well as Lycra pieces. The look is sexy and colorful but tasteful with some retro styles,” says Wendy. Her maillots and bikinis of satin neoprene fit you like a glove and the pieces in nylon and spandex feature sexy details like fringe, tassels and shredding. Bikini tops are outfitted with discreet, removable pads so that you can stay confident both in and out of the water.
Moreover, Por Do Sol’s gorgeous Indian silk kaftans are perfect for covering up when the sun goes down. But only if you really, really have to. Can’t get enough of Por Do Sol? Then go visit pordosolstyle.com.
Invest in a few pieces and know you will love them forever.
May all your gypsetting dreams come true,

We are two friends who were former magazine editors. Having moved onto other things, we both realized that the creative flow the publishing world used to offer us was missing from our lives. Armed with a common love of travel to the exotic and familiar, a penchant for the bohemian, an obsession with food and a lust for writing, we decided to collaborate our unique and fashionable journeys through life together in one passion project.
