The Lucky Guide to SWIMSUITS!

Happy Tuesday! :)

It's the first day of August tomorrow, and that always kind of makes me sad because it means the end of summer is just around the corner and we're bound to go back to school. :/

But instead of thinking of that, how about we just talk about swimsuits? ;)

I really want to get a new swimsuit for when I hit the beach again this summer... luckily, here is Lucky magazine's guide to swimsuits:


In splashy prints and insanely flattering cuts, the season's best suits have us wishing for beach weather.

1. TROPICAL - All of these suits inspire that giddy, just-landed, "I'm on vacation!" feeling.


2. OLD HOLLYWOOD - Wonderfully curve-enhancing, these will have you ready for your close-up.


3. STRIPES - Carefree and completely chic, they're summer's signature pattern.


4. DIGI-PRINTS - Colorful techie designs are thoroughly hypnotic (and so very right now).


5. COLOR-BLOCKED - Here's proof you can do the sporty thing and still look totally sophisticated.


I am more of a one-piece kinda girl, so I am gravitating towards the yellow stretch nylon keyhole swimsuit from Old Navy and the Mara Hoffman "Double Twist" swimsuit from ASOS -- the peek-a-boo detail of both swimsuits adds a sexy element to their otherwise conservative style. :)

What about you? Which of these swimsuits caught your eye the most?
Which style do you usually go for -- one-piece, two-piece, halter, bandeau, etc.?

P.S. Win any bag of your choice from Twisted Orchid (worth $80 or less)!
It is open to U.S. residents only and it will end on August 9th at 11:59pm PST.

  1. i usually switch off between a one piece and a bikini. i've really been liking bandeaus though. i think they're flattering for girls with small busts, like me. LOL. the style that i liked that most are tropical and color blocked.

  8. I'm a one piece girl too. I love watching the Olympics and seeing what is the trend these days. I'm kind of shock to see some wear so much in the pool.
