With summer in the rear view mirror and the cooler temperatures in our midst you wouldn’t think that now was the time to consider sports bras that double as swimwear, but they’re a major trend that is continuing this season. And when you think about it, it really does make sense. You might not be going from Barry’s Bootcamp to the beach, but if a top is strong enough to hold up against ocean waves it should do great when up against a 12.0 treadmill sprint. Plus as activewear brands step up their game this also means that when you do hit the water – let’s say for winter break – you’ll have a swim top that’s many steps above the basic triangle bikini top. Checkout some of the standout looks below. As a rule of thumb Koral and Gigi C are great brands to look at for multi-duty, super stylish designs.
Gigi C Eden Top, $130
Carbon38 Cami Bra, $58
