While last summer may feel like it was just a week ago, the reality is, we are now once again fast approaching warmer weather — with swimsuit season almost here. There’s no better way to look forward to fun in the sun than shopping for brand new attire. Luckily, Hoboken and Jersey City are conveniently packed with locally-owned businesses that have already started {or soon will be starting} to sell all of this year’s most popular styles. Read on to learn more about where you can purchase your new swimwear.

While alba’s suits were made for practicality, comfort, and empowerment, they’re also stylish. Fun fact: all of the suits are made from recycled fabric and the shop also donates 10% of all swimsuit sales to support sustainable and ethical fashion.

If you’re in need of a few affordable items, prices range from $5-20 for both new and gently used bathing suits.

After eight years in NYC, last summer Kim made the big decision to permanently join her boyfriend on the other side of the river in the Mile Square. Since her college days at NYU, Kim has always been a huge fan of hopping on the PATH to experience the restaurants, events, and nightlife on the other side, and since moving has really enjoyed further getting to explore all that this "mini-city" and the surrounding areas have to offer. These days when not recruiting for her full-time job as a Talent Acquisition Manager at Wunderkind, she can be found running along the Pier to the latest country hits, spending hours putting her Lifetime Movie Club subscription to good use, or likely plotting her next Seamless order to #supportlocalbusinesses.
