Swimwear Picks of 2017
Summer is officially here and what does that mean? Swimsuit season.
Some people dread trying to find a cute set to wear on the beach, some live for it. I am the latter. Trying to find fun brands that let my style shine through is always at the top of my list. And let’s be honest, when Victoria’s Secret decided to stop selling swimwear we all panicked a bit.
Here I have complied a few of my favorite brands based on occasion and picked my favorite suit of the summer!
Beach day trip: Forever 21
I always struggled with finding cute, yet affordable bathing suits. Ya know, the ones you can pick up at the mall last minute on the way to the beach? Well, Forever 21 has them and man are they cute (and cheeky!)
Here's a photo of me of one I bought for about $30 for our day trip to the Jersey Shore for Easter:
A great solid bikini: Haley Rae Swimwear
I have followed Haley Rae Swim on Instagram for ages now, and I love her designs! Based in Southern Cali, each bikini is made with love and color in mind! She has great pieces that you can mix and match to create your own original set.
Something no one else will have: Peony
I found this cool-girl brand when I was studying in Australia and immediately fell in love. They're cool, different, and everyone will be asking where you got it. Trust me, it's worth the splurge.
Packing for a week down the lake: L*Space
L*Space has long reigned in the swimsuit world attracting people to their surfy babe vibe. And for good reason. Their suits are durable, and always have a trendy design that make them a perfect pick for when you'll be away for a whole week!
A killer one piece ($$): Solid & Striped
We all want one...but let's be honest they're hard to find. True to the name you can find just about any shape of one piece in solid or striped patterns.
Last minute weekend vacation: Target
I would be lying if I didn't admit to being in love with Target, especially their swimwear. They have a wide selection at different price points, from a variety of brands and also have awesome one pieces! Plus, most Targets sell them in stores! Perfect to grab and go!
Conservative, but cute ($$): Vineyard Vines
VV has always been a go-to for me when it comes to buying a swimsuit I would feel comfortable in around my family/work/church groups etc. This also works for when I want to go waterskiing or any other water sport where I can't be worried about losing a top, or bottom. They are good quality, and always have great patterns!
My pick: (You can order it as a bikini, or tankini!)
A trendy suit that will still be cute next summer: Hippies & Housewives
Another brand I found through Instagram that has quickly made me a loyal follower. All of their suits are made in Hawaii, and they have a great collection ranging from floral to solids. With the beach in mind, their suits are made to play in the sand!
Treat Yourself to a Luxury Vacation: Maaji
Ever since I bought my first Maaji suit 5 years ago, this brand is my top choice. Anyone who is looking to invest in a stellar bikini, I send them to Maaji. They're bright, fun, and they last a LONG time (I still wear mine!), so you can sleep easy about spending a little bit more.
