Itâ€™s pretty much an unwritten rule that Evangeline Lilly has to have fantastic beach style. She gets paid to run around on the beaches of Hawaii filming Lost, a perfect gig for an avid surfer and someone with a great swimsuit body.
To make her boyish figure look more feminine, Evangeline chooses bright, girly florals. Poppy pink hibiscus flowers against an ocean-blue backdrop make a terrifically ladylike Hawaiian uniform. A halter-style top smartly draws attention away from barely-there hips and puts the focus on Evangelineâ€™s toned arms and shoulders.
To get Evangelineâ€™s fresh, carefree surfer-girl style, look for bold colors and big patterns -â€“ think big, beachy florals and hippy-chic paisleys in tropical colors. Cut-wise, look for something that offers some coverage for wave-riding. Try Salinas Swimwear’s aqua rose ‘Guadalupe’ bikini ($60) or Betsey Johnsonâ€™s ‘Betseyville Rose’ Side Tie Bikini ($74) and matching bralette ($70), accented with an ultra-girly green gingham ruffle. For Evangelineâ€™s look on a dime, Xhilaration’s Hibiscus Passion Halter Swim Top($11) offers all the goods -â€“ a supportive, wave-ready halter in flashy turquoise -â€“ for just a few bucks.
