Take a Dip with Vaute Couture’s New Vegan Swim Line

If you are vegan, you’ve most likely heard of Vaute Couture.  If you haven’t, well pull up a chair and let me tell you about this fabulous vegan fashion brand.  Based in Brooklyn, New York, Vaute Couture was launched in 2009 and made history by being the first all vegan brand to show at New York Fashion Week featuring their fabulous winter line.  Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart originally started Vaute Couture because she wanted to give people fashionable cruelty-free cold weather wear, but now she has branched out into swim wear and let me tell you, I am happy she did!  Made locally in the Big Apple, this line is full of beautifully designed vegan pieces that are crafted from recycled fabrics.  But don’t just take my word for it…see for yourself!

Vaute’s two pieces are mix and match, which I love.  This allows you to play with patterns and styles but also to get pieces that actually fit!  I don’t know about you, but I am one size on top and another on the bottom, one size definitely does not fit all!

One of my favorite tops is the E-racerback.  With its high cut neck and adjustable string racer-back, this top provides great coverage while still showing just the right amount of skin.

The Karolina wrap top has a halter neck and a great wrap feature that allows you to adjust the top so it fits just right.  So no embarrassing boob slippage with this top ladies.

For bottoms, I love Becca high waisted version. This has such a cool retro feel and the ruffles add such a cute, flirty detail.

A cool twist on the traditional bikini bottom, the Ursula v-swim bottom is both cool and sexy. The  v detail on the waistband adds an interesting element that is flattering without being too busy.

Are you more of a one piece kind of gal?  No worries, Vaute has a suit for you.

The Dagmara diamond suit is a one piece that has more coverage than a bikini but still shows a some skin with the flattering diamond cut outs.  The ruching detail gives this suit a great retro feel.

A little sporty, a little sexy, the Classic Scoop has all the coverage you would expect with a one piece with mesh sides that create a lovely hourglass silhouette.

Vaute has more swim suit styles for you to discover in many lovely color choices and you MUST check out their star print…it is divine!  Did I mention that they also have new summer clothing in addition to their swim wear?  All of their new summer items are currently available for pre-order and they are currently running a special sale that you won’t want to miss!
