A black bikini may appear slimming (or rather yet, that’s all in your head) but yawn, booooring. This season is all about the prints and luckily, they create the perfect distraction from any trouble areas you might have. If you’re close-but-no-cigar to the perfect bikini body, let your bikini do all the hard work (or shall we say, heavy lifting).
Designers like Mara Hoffman, who we absolutely cannot get enough of, have made geometric, colorful, and patterned bikinis king this year. We found everything from flirty florals to fruity punches of print, and some seriously marked-down sale styles.
Pair with one of these fabulous cover ups that can also be worn out at night (double dipping is always in style), a cooling summer beach hat, and some sunglasses to top it all off.
