Swim Suits in Anticipation of Summer

Swim Suits in Anticipation of Summer

Just because right now there is a raging snowstorm outside (#isurvivedstella) I'm of course beginning to dream of warm days, well full on daydream really. To battle my overwhelming seasonal depression I'm compiling a list of summer gear that will pump me up and make me feel so chic. 

First on my list is SWIMSUITS. Why? Because the beach. That's why. 

I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from 2017.

While I love the return of the off the shoulder look, I'm a little worried for what swimming will feel like (and how difficult it will be) in this emerging new style. Whatever the feel, fact is the rise in popularity of this fit is making it a summer must do, but what the hell right? I'll work with the tan lines in order to look this good. 

Wanna get your hands on one? 

While the options featured are definitely on the pricy side there are some affordable and adorable off the shoulder styles on the market. Here's a few that aline with my aesthetic test and fit my budget.

# 2 The High Neck Halter

Thank goodness for high-neck halters! Why they're a favorite? Not only are they perfect for teeny boobed people such as myself but more importantly they're super versatile. While your swimsuit bottoms may have a tendency to fall into the scantier categories with halter styles your options open up for ways to make it an outfit. Throw on some high waisted shorts or a summer midi skirt and your off the beach look is made! See some of my tops picks below. 

#3 The High Waisted Bikini

Nothing looks better to me than a high-waisted bikini bottom and this year there seems to be more selection available than ever before. Personally these past 2 summers i've always made sure I have a black high waisted swim bottom always at the ready. These guys are essentials for an unplanned beach trip the day after an all-night cheese and wine binge (oops). Not only are they slimming but they are actually really sturdy. Let's get in the water!
