I'm loving the vintage look of the high waisted bikini - can you help me find some? Thanks A
I’ve been toying with the idea of buying one of these too, but before I dive in you’re going to have to be my guinea pig. So let’s get started!
No one knows beach babeness better than the Aussies and Seafolly is a great swimwear line that offers up a bevy of beauty bathers. However the site is annoying and won’t let me link to the exact one I want to show you. Look at the top left picture on the homepage. Make a mental note and then scroll though the collection- you’ll eventually get to it. I promise, it’s worth the effort.
Animal print in swimwear is a bit too saucy for my liking, but I love this one by Camilla & Marc. The softness of the blues and browns meld perfectly together making it more feminine and less feline.
I’ll admit that the model in this retro swimsuit looks like she just crapped her cooch, but I’m chalking this one up to a bad photo because I love the print, colors and cut.
This next is one is hands down my favorite. I’m totally digging the black panel running down the middle of the bottoms and I adore the watercolor digital floral print.
I’m such a sucker for a good black and white “tribal” print, which is why I had to show you this Anika Brazil suit. It’s playful, pretty, but still has a good amount of ‘tude to it.
I’ve mentioned Minnow Bathers before and I’m shouting them out again because retro designs are totally their M.O. Take a look at two styles from their new collection here. (click on image 20 and 25)
A striped bather makes for a good throw-back and if that’s the kind of fashion splash you want to make click here (why she’s wearing combat boots, I don’t know) and here.
Finally, if this silhouette is the only poolside statement you want to make then check out this plain black bikini. Again, I’m a little concerned that the model looks like she’s packin’, but it just has to be a bad shot, right?
