Spring break is just around the corner and no matter where you’ve decided to take a sunny break from either work or studies, you’ll need an amazing array of swim suits to turn heads on your beach strolls. Here are the best recommendations from high end to budget swim along with a few fun and very necessary beach accessories. 🙂
The latest trending runway have been recreated and brought to all the best Swimwear brands so that every girl can make a splash in their very own pieces of swimwear heaven. There is a style for everyone no matter your taste or body shape!
We’ll start with sporty. Sleek, clean, color block looks are all the hype in sporty swimwear this season. And sporty also means sexy. While these styles might be built with a bit more support and structure, you will still be a drop dead stunner on the beach in one of these bikinis. They are also perfect for giving a bit of extra shape to the bust with fitted support they provide .
My favorite sporty choice is the sleek, all black Oakley bikini. Talk about sporty, sexy, and bust enhancing. It will be impossible not to feel like the most confident girl tearing it up at beach volleyball.
Another option is the color block bikini from Vitamin A, a high end swim brand. The navy, coral, and white is the perfect combination for a pop of sporty fun. Extra excitement comes in the back with a strappy adjustable back for an extra bit of support.
High end brand L*Space also has some great sporty options like this stripe trimmed bikini.
The bralette style has taken the runway by storm. It is great for B and C cups as it offers the perfect coverage for keeping the girls in place ;). Bralettes tend to be lower impact suits as well as they sometimes do not have cups. Mara Hoffman has stunning bralette bikinis with tropical colors and prints. This top rate bikini is worth the price. No one will look as bright and stunning as you in one of her elegant and fun styles.
The mid range bralette bikini from Victoria’s Secret Pink is the perfect choice for the sunny days spacing at the pool. Bright pink and orange with a flirtatious flounce make it a sure stand out. L*Space also doesn’t fail to impress with the peek-a-boo cleavage through the sexy strappy detail on this bikini. The pastel colors make it a perfect fit with the Miami Arc Deco Hotels along Ocean Drive. For a budget version, Target has a cute option in black.
And for a unique look, American Eagle offers a sexy little cut out bralette with a 70’s vibe that is sure to take you back in time to a retro poolside retreat.
Strappy is one of my favorite swim styles. It combines feminine and sporty, refined and sexy, all into one bikini. Mikoh creates super clean and seamless swim looks. Using earth tones to enhance the look of your new found sun glow and black and white palm prints, you’ll feel elegant and fresh at the same time. H&M also a fierce beach competitor in the strappy bikini game. It’s hard not to love this choice with the added print detail.
I am loving the reinvented triangle bikinis this season. The push up styles for some extra va va boom, mesh inserts, colorful prints, and sexy straps all make the traditional triangle bikini one of the most sexy for this spring break.
If I could only have one suit, this Vitamin A bikini would be it. Cut to create the perfect bust shape, trending geo print, and outlined in sleek black to finish the look. The itsy bottom is also a sexy complement to the top. Hello beach swimsuit competition, 1st place right here please!
The black and green print bikini from L*Space is a close tie for favorite bikini of all time. When wearing it, you’ll feel as though you are walking around a palace in Thailand with a fancy drink in your hand and cabana boy catering to your every wish. Its so exquisite, it almost feels as though you should be wearing heels with it. A great mid range choice is the tropical leaf print bikini from Australian swim brand, Seafolly. It’s the perfect combination of feminine and sporty to be everything you need for an adventure packed beach vacation.
Mesh is a hott new trend in swimwear as well and these two looks are sure to impress. A high end choice in black from Vitamin A and mid range from American Eagle, both unique ways to bring something new to the basic triangle.
Bandeaus have always been a part of our swim vocabulary but this spring, they are moving up towards the top of the list for most exciting style. Supportive push ups for maximal cleavage, slinky wraps with sparkling sequins, you can find the style bandeau that fits your desire. Mikoh, Victoria’s Secret, H&M, and Target all have amazing options for different busts shape and better yet, all are party ready.
The high neck look is hot hot hot! It is seen almost everywhere this season after its strong appearance on the swim runways. While it provides the most coverage, when done right it creates sleek lines for an eye catching silhouette. This is great for girls with petite shoulders as it draws your eye up. Us girls with athletic shoulders tend to gravitate towards the triangle styles to create a better balance. From surf looks at Mikoh to flirty crochet at VS, and hot tribal prints at Target, there is a high neck bikini for every wish.
Sexy one pieces could not be more decadent this spring! Lots of girls used to think you had to feel out of shape or not so confident to be wearing a one piece to the beach. Not the case!!! In fact, these one pieces are some of the sexiest and most confident suits I’ve seen! They are indeed great to hid any areas you don’t feel 100% about but, at the same time, you won’t feel as though you’re all covered up and boring. These have all the same fun as a bikini and maybe more. The unique designs draw the eye from top to bottom making your body look longer and therefore, leaner than most bikinis. If you haven’t yet, give one a try! My favorite option is the VS pop of neon one piece. The American Eagle suit is a close second and great for smaller chested girls to create a super sexy look. On the high end we have the one piece version of the Mikoh surf high neck and a mesh crochet look from Vitamin A which combines high neck with showing off that sexy back with a strappy surprise.
A couple of cute cover-ups to take your sexy swimwear from beach to bar or shopping is a necessary addition for any perfect spring break trip. I’ve picked the hottest ones from romper to mini to maxi for a look that is paradise ready anywhere you go. L*Space, Victoria’s Secret, and Vitamin A all have light and easy looks for the season.
Now that you are set with your swimwear for the best spring break ever, you’ll need to fill your beach bag with a few extra essentials. Don’t forget sunscreen to keep healthy glowing skin along with a sea salt spray for that perfect beachy hair from Beach Bum. A chic hat and sunnies from H&M along with sandals fit for an Egyptian princess from L*Space complete your look while taking a shopping break along the strip. And of course a tropical lotion to keep that tan looking fresh every day from VS Pink. You’ll also need a bikini bag and water bottle from Pink. Hydration is key to keeping the party going, although what you hydrate with I’ll leave up to you ;). Throw it all in your new chic Billabong beach bag and you’re ready for spring break 2016!! 🙂
