Model Michele Ouellet shows us how to effortlessly pair a blazer with a chic, stay-put swimsuit.
Model Michele Ouellet is a true summer girl. The stunner (whom you may recognize from her Gap and Madewell ads) is a big advocate for our favorite seasonal beverage—rosé—as she and her mother co-own their own label, Lorenza Rosé. “I love the connection that I get to nature from winemaking,” she says. “It’s a really beautiful process that brings art, science and nature together to create something delicious.”
And when she’s not toting her vino to BBQs and picnics, Ouellet soaks up the season by biking around NYC, cooking up flawless summer rolls and working on her surfing. “I am in the water all day,” she says. “I need a suit that stays on while I’m on the surf.” Check out these stay-put suits we found—sporty and chic enough to even pair with a sleek blazer!
