{what to wear} Beach Day for the Bikini Lover



  Friday, July 6, 2012 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,, 
Yesterday I showed a few ways to style a one-piece for the beach, but today is all about rocking the bikini.  Some people say you have to be rail thin to wear a bikini, but I am of the mindset that if you have the confidence you should go for it!  But you do need to keep in mind your body type, if you are really curvy I would stay away from the string bikini and go for a more supportive version.  Below are a few examples of the different types of bikinis you can try!

A simple string bikini is one of the more popular types.  This one comes complete with a fun parrot print, and a nice low price tag! For this bikini I opted for a crochet cover up so you could see peeks of the bikini underneath.

You can't go wrong with a classic black bikini! I paired this one with acute leopard print sundress for the perfect boardwalk look!  You can even switch the sandals for heeled ones and go out on the town!

A pretty floral bikini is another great option. I like this bikini because it is a more unique floral and not the bright Hawaiian style you always find on the beach. For this suit I found a solid coverup that pulled one of the colors out of the print.
