Mesmerizing mermaids

Step aside, unicorns.

This summer, we’re all about celebrating 2018’s trendiest mythological creature – the mermaid. While we may never have a shimmering turquoise tail or the luscious wavy locks we long for, there are still plenty of ways we can incorporate the mermaid look into life on two legs.

For those of us who aren’t quite ready to sport a shell bikini top, enter Mermaid Life. Based in St. Augustine, Florida, Mermaid Life’s collection of accessories and apparel features everything from funny graphic Ts and themed jewelry to beach towels and pool equipment in bright, bold, colors.   

Keep drinks cool during the peak of the summer heat with Mermaid Life’s original sparkling bottle “koolies,” or protect yourself from the sun’s damaging rays in a colorful, scale-patterned shirt (with added UPF 25 sun protection). Add a matching hat, phone case or even collar for your furry friend.

For the little mermaids, Mermaid Life offers a selection of monofins, created in collaboration with swimwear and pool equipment company Finis, so the kids can live out their Ariel dreams for hours on end.

Mermaid Life is making a splash at more than 300 boutiques across the United States, the Bahamas, the Cayman Islands, the Virgin Islands and more.
