Best Choices For Bathing Suit Season

Look hot, but stay cool this summer.

Let’s face it, most people hate bath suit shopping.  I personally put it right before a trip to the dentist as a fun thing to do. But, it’s that time of year again and you can’t swim in your clothes (I know because I’ve tried).

We could divide it into age appropriate suits, but lets face it, some 20 years olds want to cover up, and some 40 year olds want to flaunt it.  As for body types, you probably know yours by now. If you are like me, you fluctuate and are always trying to tweak what your mama gave you. So, let these suits inspire you to keep eating healthy and working out.

For a one piece with a twist, check out Badgley Mischka’s Wide Strap Draped One Piece.  If you are looking for a sexy plunge in your neckline before you hit the pool, check out Lenny’s Adjustable One-Piece Swimsuit.  We love the ethnic tribal look and slimming effect of the ruching on Carmen Marc Valvo’s Zigzag Print One-Piece Swimsuit, while Michael Kors Speed Clip Metallic-Trimmed swimsuit is gorgeously glamorous.

Letarteswimwear.com has some fun sexy bikinis if that’s the look you are after.  We at doB also love their Cobalt Skull Rashguard over their color-coordinated bikinis because with UPF 50 fabric, it blocks 90% percent of the sun’s harmful rays. Similarly, we are dying for their Skull Underwire Bikini.

For some other bikini picks, get wild and get attention in Vix’s Safari Triangle Fringe Top and Safari Tie Bottom, or in keeping with style dujour, go neon and brighten your day with Matthew Williamson’s Butterfly-Print Triangle Bikini.  For a sweet beach look, check out Shoshana’s Crochet Hot Pink Triangle Bikini or Hermanny’s Ikat Bead Bikini.

Since we all need supplies for the beach, be sure to pack them in the chic attention getting Resort Stripe Beach Tote in four different color combinations by Deux Lux.  I liked mine so much I started carrying my kid’s gear in it around Manhattan. For a standout look with the softest beach bag around, go for Fresco’s Terry Bags.  With too many styles to mention, we are digging the Bohemian Damask Royal Blue, the Vintage Americana and the Aztec Blue.

So, go hit the pool or beach with confidence. You‘re sure to make a splash in any of our hot picks for summer days.
