Finding cute swimwear can be tough when everything starts to look the same. That’s why we love discovering up-and-coming brands like Acacia Swimwear, which focuses on unique details and stunning custom prints. It makes sense that the line was founded by two girls who practically live in bikinis: Naomi Newirth is a fashion designer from Maui, and her partner Lyndie Irons, a swimsuit model from Southern California. Below are some of our favorite shots from their gorgeous summer 2014 lookbook, which is making us die to hit the beach, by the way! And if you must have one for yourself, you can shop Acacia Swimwear at Free People and Revolve Clothing

Oakland-based designer Jennifer Jennings’ collection, Serial Cultura, features luxe silk pieces made with a combination of hand-dying and digital printing. The Fall 2013 collection includes plenty of styles perfect for the office or the weekend - here are some of our favorite looks: 



Summer style is all about comfort, and these printed drawstring shorts are laid back with a lot of style. The limited edition cotton shorts by Wren are made in Los Angeles of fabric that is hand-dyed through a fair-trade program employing women in Africa. They’re perfect for heading to the beach (cute as a cover up!) or a night out with friends (just add heels and a sleek blazer).
