Everyone is bringing out new suits! I’m excited–it’s beach weather all year round in Hawaii but new swim suit styles don’t come out until now–late Spring/early Summer.
I haven’t gone searching around too much, but so far, I have noticed there seems to be some new styles/trends for this year:
1. Bandaeu Tops
2. Tribal Prints
I personally like this style of top because it’s like two in one! You can wear it strapless or as a halter. Tribal prints, on the other hand, I like if it’s not too busy or too colorful. I like the top for this suit but I think I would have liked the bottom more if the middle section was a solid black. (P.S. This set is on sale at PacSun ATM!)
3. Bustier Tops
4. Padded Cups
Its like a bra, but in nylon/lycra/spandex so you can wear it in the water! Interesting. I heard from a friend that VS has a pretty affordable line of push-up bikini tops?
4. One Piece Swimsuits with Interesting Cutouts
Also on advice from a friend–she has one of these suits and she absolutely LOVES it. I’m a bit worried about strange tan lines, but hey! We’re all supposed to cover-up, be in the shade, and wear lots of sunscreen, right?
Personally, my favorite is the bandeau. I actually just went to my local TJ Maxx (just opened in Hawaii, hurray!) and I scored a super cute Poko Pano bandeau bikini for $15! Good deals. 😀
