Summer on a budget? Ew.
We can relate. There are very few things worse than a beach babe having to limit her swimwear purchases for the summer season. After all, you want this bikini for the cruise; that bikini for the resort; this one-piece for the family vacation; that bikini for sunbathing; this bikini for beach volleyball… The list goes on.
We all want every swimsuit style, especially this summer season. Can you say hot?
Unfortunately, many of us have a beach babe budget that limits our shopping aspirations to only a couple of swimsuits. The good news is that you don’t have limit yourself to only one beach look this summer just because you have only one swimsuit, nor do you have to fork over your savings for the entire beach collection. You just need to learn the secrets to adding a splash of versatility into your swimwear wardrobe. And you guessed it - we have you covered.
One Neutral-Colored Swimsuit
Having a neutral-coloured swimsuit is like having one pair of skinny jeans you know you can always rely on. They can be paired with all colors, designs, fabrics, tops and beach accessories, allowing you to get several different beach styles out of one purchase.
So, if nothing else, add black, white, grey, nude or beige bikini into your wardrobe this season. The lack of vibrancy might sound boring, but you can mix and match the bikini tops and bikini bottoms to change up the look as you please. Plus, throw on some beach body jewelry, and your basic beach styles can look runway-worthy in seconds.
At Least One Splash of Color
Now that you have picked your neutral swimsuit, it’s time to pick at least one piece of swimwear that will add a splash of personality into your look. Perhaps it’s a bikini bottom with wild flowers flowing throughout the style or maybe it’s a bright yellow ribbed bikini top with sexy straps. Whatever it is, have something that you can pair with your basics to make your “basics” 10 x more fabulous.
Just think – would you rather wear a black bikini or black bikini bottoms with one hell of a cute bikini top?
