Beach and pool season is almost here, which means it’s time to think more about finding the right swimsuit. Most people don’t enjoy shopping for a new swimsuit, and it’s easy to see why as the store dressing room lights never seem to flatter any shape. To make this easier on you, we’ve compiled a list of this season’s swimsuit trends and how you can make them work for you. There is a swimsuit style for virtually everyone, and we’re here to help you find the right style that will look best on you.
1- Halter Bikini Tops
A halter style bikini top has been a trend for years and for good reason. This style shows off toned arms and shoulders while providing extra coverage. A few important style rules to consider when you’re shopping for bikinis; it’s important to look for halter straps that fit well. If you’re naturally svelte or skinny, you can get away with skinny halter straps; however, if you’re more curvy, a halter with medium to thicker straps are a better choice.
2- Bandeau One Piece
If you’re looking for a swimsuit that offers more coverage in the stomach area, the one piece is your best bet. If you want to look and feel a little sexy in your one piece, opt for a strapless or bandeau version. This style is daring in a tasteful way. If you want to go for a more classic look, choose a style in either navy blue or black. If you’re not afraid of color, try red or jade green. Tie a colorful floral sarong over your lower half for a chic cover up.
3- Tankini Separates
Love the look of separates, but hate the minimal coverage a bikini gives? The tankini offers the best of both worlds with a tank style top and coordinating bikini bottom. This style can go both ways. You can choose a shorter tankini top to show a little bit of skin, or you can go for full coverage. The good news is that there isn’t a whole lot of style rules when it comes to the tankini. It’s also the one swimsuit style that works for nearly all figures and sizes.
