You can feel it in the air: it’s getting toasty, the sun is making more frequent appearances. You’re needing a jacket less and less. You find yourself needing the AC on instead of the heater.
Summer is coming.
That means barbecues, outdoor activities, and sipping fruity beverages poolside. And yes, that does mean it’s time to break out the bikini again.
Last year didn’t call for many bikini-necessary events. If you’re missing the feeling of sun on your skin (who isn’t right?) now is your time to shine.
So where do you begin the search this year?
Here’s how you can get summer ready with some new trendy bikini styles.
Get a Little Cheeky
Let’s be real, here. It’s been a minute since we’ve had an opportunity to show some skin. Although sweatpants are undeniably very comfy, it’s time to take a break from them.
What better way to get back into the bikini lifestyle than a new pair of cheeky bikini bottoms?
With a cute little pair of cheeky bottoms, you can show just the right amount of booty. Plus, you can pair them with any bikini top that you’re digging.
They’re cute, they’re versatile, they’re just a vibe. What more could you ask for?
Let’s face it, bikini shopping can be a lot to handle. It can be time-consuming to find the right style, the right color or pattern, the right vibe to go for when you’re bikini shopping.
That’s why it’s important to get a head start. Shopping early for your bikini can take a lot of the stress out of the task.
There’s nothing worse than rushing at the last minute and settling. You shouldn’t have to settle for an “okay” bikini. You deserve the perfect high waisted cheeky bikini. And that usually takes some time.
It’s like they always say, there’s no time like the present, right?
Look for Style
Do some research ahead of time so you can go in with an idea of what you want.
Are you into a stringy triangle bikini? More of a bandeau? Maybe you want to go a bit more daring this year with a monokini?
If you’re looking for what’s currently un style, go for something with extra strappy. Scalloped edges are also in style. And yes, bandeaus are here to stay.
Whichever style you’re looking for, think of that first before shopping. Having a basic framework in mind can make everything run more smoothly when the time comes.
Of course you shouldn’t stay married to your first idea of style. Keep an open mind to all of the bikini possibilities.
Find what Makes You Comfiest
This one’s arguably more important than your bikini’s style. Pick a bikini that will stay comfortable on you and your body.
This also means taking your activities into consideration. The bikini that looks great lounging on the beach may not be ideal for watersports.
Don’t sacrifice personal comfort for whatever looks good. You should feel confident that your bikini won’t ride up in weird ways if you’ll be wearing it for a while.
Take it Personally
We don’t mean this in a bad way. Take your bikini personally.
Pick a style that you like, that makes you feel your best. If you don’t feel confident in what you’re wearing, what’s the point in wearing it?
Remember that saying look good, feel good? That applies here especially.
What makes you feel your best is up to you and you alone. Don’t let magazines tell you what does or does not look good on your body type. At the end of the day, it’s your body and your bikini.
