It's not quite summer yet but stores and bloggers have begun whipping out the swimsuits and swimwear posts like mad recently.

Swimwear isn't my forte nor do I shop for bathing suits...ever. But I thought I'd just share with you guys some cute ones that I've found online and hopefully, if you're stuck and not sure what to buy, these pictures will give you an idea!

Oh! Just a quick tip. Different patterns/shapes/cuts of swimsuits will emphasize different body parts. If you're looking to take the attention off of your chest area, I suggest something solid and neutral colored paired with a bold patterned bottom. Likewise, you can flip this combo if you're trying to tone down your lower bum region! If it's your hips you're worried about, try a one piece but with a solid black color block on both sides of the hips. The black will give the appearance of a slimmer waist/hip area.

And like anything else in fashion, you don't have to stick to the "rules". Just wear what you feel is comfortable and what you think looks good on you!

F21 Leopard Trapeze Swim Top and Leopard Hipster Swim Bottom $12.80, $9.80

Vitamin A "Cosmo" Ruched Bikini Bottoms $76

Asos Lemon Print Spaghetti Strap Bikini Top and Lemon Print Hipster Bikini Briefs $24.35, $20.87

Asos Geometric Enamel Cut Out Swimsuit $48.71

Asos Color Block Wrap Swimsuit $52.19

Until next time,

  1. great picks- I love cutaway swimsuits I think they're more stylish than your standard bikini. Although that tiger print number is seriously cool!
