It's definitely that time of year again; the gyms are way too crowded, and my blindingly white thighs are begging me to start a new diet regimen. It's SWIMSUIT SEASON. So, though I don't exactly feel ready to show my pasty skin to the world, in a month and a half I'll be basking in the Hawaiian sun, so I've forced myself to start thinking about which bikini will best compliment my paleness... and my style.
As you may know, I'm a total sucker for anything classic and/or reminiscent of old Hollywood Glamour
A swimsuit that will bring out the Audrey Hepburn in you. Lux Lamour One-Piece $88
You can do no wrong with a simple black bikini, especially with an ultra-flattering halter top cut. Malia Mills Danceteria top $140, and bottom $130, though if you pair the top with a cheaper black bottom from Gap, $16.99, you'll save more money for those pricey piña coladas!
A classic red bikini can do no wrong, and this Victoria Secret suit is on sale for $19!
Another fun, classic piece is the Padded solid underwire glamour top from J Crew, $48, which comes in 16 different colors, and can be paired with any color bottom ($38)
