Brand Spotlight: Beach Riot
Beach Riot was founded by Newport Beach local Nicole Hanriot who grew up in the action sports world, worked as a fashion designer for two other companies, and always wanted her own brand. With a passion for swimwear and her SoCal roots Nicole started Beach Riot for the all around California cool girl. Designed in sunny California - from the beach to the streets the Beach Riot girl is modern, bold, and effortlessly chic. With a sun-kissed year round look the Beach Riot babe is never afraid to be bold and creative with her style.

I was first introduced to the brand a few years ago by VIDA MOULIN of course! I’m a color connoisseur, ask anyone and they will tell you my entire closet is a rainbow. My eye instantly went to Beach Riot since I loved the bold bright colors, funky prints and mix and match styles. Everything they create is made to capture and post on the 'gram!
Styles I Love: Their one pieces are statement pieces, with the funky cutouts and asymmetrical styles. They are not your typical one pieces. I'm more of a fan of cheeky/moderate coverage and Beach Riot is the perfect balance for me without being too skimpy. I recently went on a trip to Hawaii and I loved how versatile their one pieces are! We were on a boat all day and then went out that evening, with no time to change. I just threw on a maxi skirt over my Beach Riot one piece, and bam! I had a fun bodysuit look for the night out.
Fit and Comfort: I love that Beach Riot uses fabric with weight to it and provides coverage where you need it for a perfect combo of sexy and sporty! Before I discovered the brand, I always used to be apprehensive when it came to high waisted styles. I tried them with other swim brands and I straight up looked like I was wearing an actual swim diaper. Beach Riot makes you feel so confident in your curves while elongating you with their fits. The bottoms hit right on top of your hips and tuck into the smallest part of your waist. Also, the brand's tops hold in your boobs comfortably without constant readjustment. Hello, dream combo!
