Over the years I've developed this habit of only wearing basic triangle and solid bikinis. Perhaps it's a resistance to spending a lot of money on a suit or a fear that it won't flatter me, but this year there are so many patterns and styles I don't think I can resist.
As of late I'm loving the resurgence of sailor and preppy stripes like this adorable ruffled number from Top Shop, and this orange with cream piping is a pretty cute and mod twist of a basic suit from J.Crew.
And have you been noticing that bikinis have begun a transformation and gotten longer in the ribcage area or higher up on the waist? While I'm not into the latter, I'm really digging the fuller bikini top like this paisley boho suit from Forever 21.
And last but not least, everyone needs a little neon in their life. No further explanation needed.
Have you picked out your new summer suit yet? What style are you into this year? I think one thing we can all agree on this year is the importance of sun protection. Don't forget to lather up before you suit up, and be cautious of what you're putting on your skin! Stay away from products with harmful toxins and try out one of our favorite sunscreen lines, Coola, instead. Coola's spray and lotion sunscreens are all organic which means no harmful chemicals are seeping into your skin. Added perk - they also go on matte which means you won't look greasy all day at the beach!
Enjoy the warm weather, gals and be sure to follow us and all our summertime adventures on instagram!
