Swimsuit Season

Its almost swimsuit season and the question is what to wear?
Here are a few tips and choices I have for swimwear. 

Tips: You should always shop for the the styles that fit your body type. Just because it's cute doesn't mean you should wear it. Make sure you are comfortable and confident in your suit. 
Also, make sure the color goes with your skin tone. Don't wear a color that could wash you out. 
I am a firm believer in mix and matching! You can create several swimsuits with just a few pieces. I will show you how to mix and match the right way.
These are a few of my favorite swimsuits of summer 2011. 

This suit is so playful and flirty with perfect spring colors. This style is great for a smaller busted person. It pushes up and emphasizes with the ruffle. Its from theorchidboutique.com $112.00

This one piece is a ruffle and a multicolored floral pattern. The ruffle swoops all the way around the suit so it's not just in the front.Great for someone with or without curves. The pattern covers up and the ruffle shows off. By the wonderful Marc Jacobs from neimanmarcus.com $173.00

This pattern mix is from Betsy Johnson.com. The bottoms are $96.00 and the top $106.00. Don't be afraid to mix patterns like this as long as they coordinate well. 

This suit is definitely for the less endowed. It gives you up to two full cup sizes and designed exactly like a bra. The fold over bottoms are great for bigger hips. All from Victoriassecret.com and available in different patterns and colors. The top $54.00 and the bottoms $30.00.


This sassy little yellow bikini is from Kmart! It would be great for mix and matching. Bongo brand for Kmart, a great buy for $12.99 for each piece. 


MIX AND MATCH:


These two mix and match are perfect together. The black/white stripe top matches so well with the floral pattern. I found both of these pieces on pacsun.com $29.50 for the bottoms and $39.00 for the top. Okay so next we will take the bottoms and find another top that can go well with it. 
Which, you can always get the one that matches it which was also on pacsun.com $29.50. I like the other combo personally and thats the best thing about mixing and matching. You can pick out which ever combos you like the best. 
You could always go with a black top that could interchange with other bottoms like the ones that match the stripe top or the florals. This is from American Eagle $24.50. This top would also be very cute in red with those bottoms. 


Here is another example :



This swimsuit from Victoriassecret.com could go with a ton of different sold colored separates or be worn with the patterns together. It is $38.00 for the top and $16.00 for the bottoms. A very good investment when starting to mix and match.


 These regular turquoise bottoms would go great with the top! The beaded embellishments match the color. From forever21.com $9.80.
This other embellished top from Victoriassecret.com goes with the printed bottoms or the turquoise bottoms. For $38.00 you can put either one of those together for two different swimsuits. 
This ruffle halter top is Ralph Lauren from Belk.com for $54.00 and looks great with the patterned bottoms! 




 Hopefully this teaches you how easy it is to mix and match your suits for summer! You don't have to spend a fortune of swimsuits just use what you have or buy a few key pieces.
