MAKING STATEMENTS :: SHORESIDE STYLE

Island Vacation: When you, along with your bare legs, arms, belly, chest, back, or any combination of the above, can head to the nearest body of water and just… Do a whole lot of nothing!
Whether you’re staying cute by the beach, sporting, or avoiding the water at all costs (Lol!) the beachwear trends I’ve shared below will elevate your beach-bum status to fabulous new heights and should definitely make the cut for your next fun-in-the-sun adventure!

CUT . IT . OUT!

If conservative silhouettes are more your speed, but you’re looking to flash tasteful skin (awkward tan lines be damned!) then this cut-out number is right up your alley. Comfort, coverage and chic-appeal – all in a single piece! For a fun take on this noir situation, I opted for a fringed cover-up in a contrasting colour and a pair of mirrored sunglasses, you know, for an element of mystery 😉

COLOUR- BLOCK… 

… Because vibrant colour pairings rule!
I can’t put my finger on what sealed the deal for me with regards to this bikini, but let’s just say, I’m a sucker for colour, fun textures and 90’s glam! 😛

HIGH-WAIST IT! 

For as long as we’re discussing the 90’s, retro glamour is alive, well and reigning in high-waisted bikinis! I absolutely love this throw-back silhouette and it’s made even more fun when updated with bold print.
When it came to the cover-up of the day, I opted for this blanc gem, whose peek-a-boo situation gives a glance of the bikini underneath, while still leaving some room for imagination.

A FEW ESSENTIALS 

1) You’re never fully ready for summer until you have a sick pair of sunglasses (or three!) and a bold lip, for good measure.

2) An anklet and a toe ring had a baby and all hail, Barefoot Sandals were born! This crocheted beauty made for the chicest beach companion, ever!
