There may only be one month of summer left, but that isn’t going to stop us from squeezing every last drop out of it. By now you are one of two people: 1) You have worn your current suits so much they are faded or stretched, 2) You never even bought a suit and/or haven’t hit the pool yet this year (say it ain’t so!!!). For both of you, I found a great range of must-have suits to keep the summer love going. The good news: a lot of them are, or will be, on “end of season” sale! Just remember 30+SPF facial sunscreen or a straw hat to keep that gorgeous face young and healthy (no wrinkles ’round here!)
L Space Farrah Bikini, $96: I love this suit! I have done everything from lounging to snorkeling to paddle boarding in this style. Good to have in the vacation rotation. But note the bottoms are cut slightly high in the back and the top is not adjustable, so keep that in mind for sizing.
Isabella Rose, $130: This suit looks great in person, the floral fabric and lace lining is the right amount of feminine. Very pretty but not a ton of coverage or support if you plan to be super active!
Color Play One-Piece, $118:Can you see yourself at that poolside bar yet? Two of my friends have this suit in varying colors. It’s so comfortable, and VERY flattering. That band around the stomach hits at just the right place. A great way to show some skin but get the coverage of a one-piece.
Warehouse Stripe Scallop Bikini, $60: I own this suit too – it’s super comfortable and the top stays up without a neck strap (although one comes with it). An affordable version of the scallop trend, plus you can mix and match sizing.
Solid and Striped, The Brigette, $120: So L.A. Solid and Striped is a relatively new brand but they are everywhere already. I love the high-waisted bottom (hold it all in!) and the vertical stripes are give it some interest. Check out their one-pieces too – simple, flattering and (reasonably) priced for a classic suit.
Target Printed Cut Out Halter, $35: Can’t beat the price on this one! Target has always been a go-to for swim suits, and this cut out is a cute take on a one-piece. Very on trend.
Nanette Lepore Goddess One-Piece, $94: I love the retro pattern and unexpected colors. Plus the fabric almost looks suede, which does upscale pool elegance in the right way.
See you on the beach!
