5 Bathing Suit Styles for 2021
Your 5 Most-Burning Swimwear Questions, Answered
Swim season is right around the corner (praise be!) and if you’re anything like us, you’ve got a dreamy getaway on the books, beach reads in your cart, and bathing suits on your mind. Shopping for said swimsuits can spawn a whole host of questions, so we’re here to play Jeeves by answering (in the form of cute suits, of course) your top-asked swimwear Q’s.
The best bottoms for avoiding the dreaded beach wedgie?
Our fave stay-put suits are equipped with a high waist & extra bum coverage (a cheeky nod to classic vintage fits), so you can make a splash without worrying about mooning the whole beach. We’re adding three to cart faster than you can say “SPF.”
Inexpensive bathing suits that are seriously chic?
If you’d rather spend your vacation fund at the swim-up bar, opt for these sun-ready numbers under $100 (that still look like a million bucks), from fun tie-dye styles to understated-cool bikinis.
Are there any plus-size swimsuits out there that are also on trend?
A fun printed two-piece (you can never go wrong with tie-dye), high-rise bottoms, and one-pieces with cool cutouts and plunging necklines prove that gone are the days of limited and boring options for plus-size suits. (Good riddance, we say!)
Style hacks for getting more mileage from a swimsuit?
When styled right, a cute one-piece bathing suit can pull double duty as a bodysuit. Take it from lounge chair to poolside lounge with just a few strategic additions, like a breezy linen pant, and fun heeled sandal (and don’t forget the umbrella-topped cocktail).
A cover-up that’s still cute for a post-swim outing?
A coordinating caftan or lightweight romper are (literally) effortless options when plans call for a quick venue change (just add a strappy sandal & an outfit-finishing bag), but if the onesie look just isn’t your vibe, high-rise cutoffs play nice with a bandeau bikini top.
