SWIMSUITS FOR A BIG SPLASH
From ruffles, bandeaus and one-shoulder pieces to funky, retro-inspired, short, skimpy things, bathing suits have covered the entire spectrum. Here’s our list of the top five.
 

Ruffle it up

Peek-a-boo

This retro inspired ruffled bikini has won us over with its playful style. Perfect for a day of silly fun by the beach or the pool, it works wonders on the straight-shaped girl, giving the appearance of a curvier bod. With detailing such as this, stick to smaller prints so as to avoid a busy look.

Get it at: Ondademar at Oceaniss.

 

One-shouldered delight

Peek-a-boo

Cute as a button, this one-shouldered floral piece hits all the right notes. The block of refreshing purple is just right to break the print on top and we especially love the little fringed detailing at the shoulder.

Two piece, please

Peek-a-boo

Ditch your cover-up for this unique two-piece featuring a bralet and a high waisted bottom. It covers you just enoughto leave that sarong skirt behind, and still keeps it sexy. We love the zip detail on the bralet. This style works especially well if you have a fuller bottom as the high shorts camouflage trouble areas perfectly.

Playful stripes

Peek-a-boo

We’re crushing on stripes all over again, and it seems as though this trend has returned in every colour, size, form, and rendition that there could ever be. Perfect for the girl with an athletic figure, the horizontal stripes work wonders to give the illusion of a fuller figure.

Peek-a-boo

There is nothing like a little sheer to take any look from drab to fab. This cool and simple black one-piece is definitely a scorer with that sheer detailing right down to the midriff. Perfect for almost every body type, this piece is a must-have all year round—whether you’re basking in the sun in Thailand or cruising cold waters in Miami.

Changing my career to fashion at the age of 27 was a risk that I'm glad I took! I don't think there is any substitute for hard work. I can be overly shy and self conscious one day and feel like I can conquer the world the next. You have to try my caramel pudding and chicken soup and don't even dare playing charades with me—I'm super competitive. I love what I do and am always looking for a way to take it up a notch!
