When it comes to swimwear, we say the more the merrier! After all, different occasions call for different bikinis: A shimmering two-piece for a pool party, a demure corset top and high-waisted bottoms for boating, and now, thanks to new swimwear label Made By Dawn, a pocketed suit for collecting shells at the beach!

Founded by Dawn Peterson—a Hawaii-native who settled in Santa Barbara after a stint modeling in New York—Made By Dawn is a small collection of design-minded swimwear that speaks to our girly side with petite ruffles, stone-colored stripes and elegant cut-outs. Each piece tells its own story, including the aforementioned Shell Picker suit, which is made with small pockets made just for storing little beach treasures.

"I want to put good juju out there and hope it spreads like wild fire," says Peterson of her design process, "I make suits because that’s what I am doing right now and everything in my life has brought me here to this point."

Good juju? We're naming that our newest beach bag essential.
