As temperatures are on the rise, the anticipation of summer has us all feeling like grade-school kids counting down to the official end of school. As pool parties, beach vacations and backyard barbecues are on the horizon, it’s safe to say we have some serious summertime antics to make up for. And nothing screams summer like swimsuits.
Just the word “swimsuit” can send signals to your brain to instantly panic because they’re usually not that much fun to shop for. You have to combat the terrible lighting most fitting rooms notoriously have if shopping in a store. And if you’re online shopping, you run the risk of it looking much different from the picture.
While there’s no controlling a store’s lighting or how a swimsuit will ultimately look like on you, I can, however, show you the top-rated swimmies for whatever look you want. This year’s crop of flirty patterns, stylish metallics, bright colors and flattering cuts are sure to inspire your quest for the perfect swimsuit.
