Style Guide: The Only Three Swimsuits You'll Need This Summer

We’ve saved the best style guide for last this month with this summer swimmies trends guide! It can be rather overwhelming shopping for swimsuits since there are thousands of styles to choose from, but we've made it simple for you and narrowed it down to the only three swimsuits you'll need this summer.

This is perfect for those of you prefer to invest in a few key pieces that you can wear again next year instead of buying a bunch of extras that you only wear once. Are you ready? Let's dive right in...

Swimsuit Must-Have: The Chic One-Piece

First and foremost you must have a classic one-piece suit in a chic style! Whether it’s in a fun print (like stripes or gingham) or it comes with a low-back or thigh-high design, it’s best to have at least one go-to, one-piece that makes you feel sexy and confident wherever and whenever you wear it. This will especially come handy on those days you aren't feeling so body confident - and we ALL have those from time to time!

Swimsuit Must-Have: Little Black Bikini

When all else fails, a black bikini will be your best friend. While you’re at it, make sure to choose a style that flatters your body and highlights your best assets. Whether it’s a vacation by the beach or a pool party, a little black bikini is as versatile as a little black dress – so make sure to have one that you can easily reach for in your wardrobe!

Swimsuit Must-Have: Ruffles

Because we all deserve to have a little fun, ruffles will work regardless of your personal style. If you want your summer look to be a little more playful, go for oversized ruffles with a funky print. A ruffled suit tends to work best for pool parties or for that grand vacations to a tropical island you've been planning all year.
