Get Whitney Port’s Nanette Lepore Coquette bikini (Top, $69, Bottoms, $69 at Bloomingdale’s)

If your closet is filled with Nanette Lepore (or you just wish it was), there’s great news for you: Nanette Lepore swimwear is really similar to her flirty dresses, and they’re even less expensive.  Whitney Port looks amazing in Nanette Lepore’s new swimwear line, but before you see our faves below, I need to share some truly genius swimsuit shopping advice I learned when I once interviewed a famous swimsuit designer.


Think about what’s already in your closet and what looks best on you–and let your suit, well, follow suit. Into floral halter tops? A floral halter bikini is your thing. More of a structured black blazer kinda girl? You’ll be most comfortable in a black one piece or tankini. It seems simple, but follow this advice &  immediately, your shopping experience will be 50% more productive–you can rule out zebra prints or lime green cut-out suits, unless that’s your thing.

Whitney Port, ever the trend-setter, is already on board, and she’s proof this theory works–her usual pink and neutral palette is not far from this bikini she chose.
