Summer Swimwear Round-up

Look out, all you shorts-wearing, sandal-sporting fashion fans. Our warm days are coming to a close, and though the pools are still teeming with those in search of a refreshing dip, summer is winding down. Soon we'll be swapping our swimsuits for scarves and storing away our breezy tees in favor of cozy sweaters.

I don't know about you guys, but I've had a pretty fabulous summer and have loved soaking up these beautiful rays. In honor of my recent adventures, I've compiled a collection of swimsuits with themes I've spotted in my summer outings. Here's to hoping these alternative trends, that highlight atypical styling, withstand the fashion grind for next year's summer season!

Happy summer-ing in these next few precious weeks!

Nordstrom: Betsey Johnson 'Retro Revival' One-piece
Classic - One-pieces, aren't just for teetering tots anymore! In fact, in the last few years, monokinis have become a symbol of classic sensuality. This adorably mod suit has a feminine sweetheart neckline, sheer detailing at the neck and a matching dotted mesh waistband. Streamlined and cute, one-pieces are all the rage!

ASOS: Raisins Beach Day Bali Fringe Bandeau Bikini
Girly/Bohemian - I spotted plenty of fringe on the beach this past year, but this suit has a few key details that keep it anything but ordinary. Instead of a typical triangle bikini, this bandeau features a flirty keyhole in addition to the fringe. Hip ties on the bottoms and a bright yellow hue keep things fun!

ASOS: Open Strappy Triangle High Waist Bikini
Sexy - When you've had enough of being subtly coy, slip into a bold cut-out ensemble. This attention-grabbing suit in shocking purple is a guaranteed remedy for hum-drum swimwear! Flashes of hip on a high waisted brief are unexpected. A unique strappy bikini tops it off with just the right amount of itty bitty.

Dolls Kill: This is a Lovesong Mermaid Bikini
Funky - Boring bikinis be damned! Get your awesome on with this ultra cool sorbet-colored suit. A graphic "Mermaid" script, sporty briefs, and contrasting pastel trim let gawkers know you're one of a kind. An urban edge tempered with a simple cut, this suit is ready to get weird! (Warning: pigtail buns not included.)

Dolls Kill: Castles Couture 5-0 Bikini
Sporty -What would the beach be like without a few serious surfers? This scuba-inspired two-piece peppers in a dose of athletic chic with modern color blocking. The result? A functional suit that is sleek and hip. And check out that back! Get ready for some stares as you're swimming laps around all those waders.
