FRIDA Cover Up Wrap Dress

FRIDA Cover Up Wrap Dress


The following suggested cover ups are sheer and fragile, much like Frida once was. She was constantly transparent with the intense and powerful feelings held inside of her very soul. Juxtapose to her delicate and small appearance, which she so often depicted in many of her self-portraits. The following cover ups portray a sleek strength & power when worn.

Featuring a V shape neckline at the top, this dress is perfect for any occasion. This dress cover up wraps around the body and drapes to reveal an open back, creating the perfect coverage. At the hem of the fabric are ruffles for a feminine effect. The mesh fabric creates an outline of the body, which flirts with the balance of exposure and coverage. One-size-fits-all, this dress is a perfect evening cover up.

SABRINA Beach Cover Up

A versatile addition, like this dress, can be worn 4 different ways. Wear it as an off the shoulder dress, a skirt, a strapless dress, and a boat neck dress, pick one for any mood. The mesh creates great breathability and movement in the fabric, especially at a breezy location. One-size-fits-all, this dress is a quintuple threat. 

Handkerchief Tankini Top

JENNA Handkerchief Tankini Top


Frida was outspoken about any opinion or emotion of hers and demanded them to be heard. Expressing herself through colorful symbols and dramatic metaphors, she was graphically authentic with her art. This season we embrace her traditional Mexican style & love for life by designing a few exclusive FRIDA-inspired prints in the collection >>>

FLOR FUERTE, a bold and beautiful chevron-like pattern with a vibrant yellow pop scattered with the flowers in her hair FRIDA commonly adorned herself with.

A strapless top that hangs into a V shape, giving the appearance of a handkerchief. This creates an opportunity for tummy coverage and movement in the fabric. A built-in shelf bra provides support, which can be compounded if push up pads are chosen as well. This top is the perfect balance between a bikini and tankini.

Bandeau Bikini Top

MADDY Bandeau Bikini Top & High Leg High Waisted Bottoms

Another strapless option, the MADDY has a straight neckline and removable push up pads. The top, with wire lining, creates enough security so that it can be worn at the beach or pool. Because of the tight clasp at the back, this top isn’t even thinking of falling. The high waistline is a fantastic solution for any tummy concerns. While the high-leg elongates the thigh and creates the illusion of legs for days. The modest suit cinches the waist and emphasizes an hourglass shape. 

REVOLUCIÒN, strong passionate stripes aligned in uniformity & bright color. This print has a commanding FRIDA-like presence of power & beauty for 2019. 

Womens Swim Dress

HOLLY Womens Swim Dress

This dress is a swimsuit in disguise. The halter neckline has ruching at the front, detailing the bust. The dress then extends to an A-line cut, and the hemline is dressed up with flirty ruffles. Included are built-in shelf bra support and a full coverage one piece is sewn in underneath.

ALEXA Triangle Bikini Top & Bottom

A classic triangle bikini top, with sizes ranging from XS to XXL. Add push up pads for extra support and lift. Also, the option for SWAROVSKI crystals to jazz up the swimsuit is always a good idea. This top is an easy way to enhance the bust and feel confident. 

Pair the ALEXA Triangle Bikini Top with these bottoms. The ties on the side are a nice detail & make sure to add SWAROVSKI crystals to take it to the next level. Opt for the cheeky or full coverage fit, and choose between half, full, or no scrunch. Either way, this suit will fit fantastically.
