While this weekend may have been the unofficial start to summer, we’re officially excited for the fun warmer months ahead! As our calendars begin filling up with weekend getaways, beach trips and pool parties, we’re reminded of the inevitability of a certain seasonal staple: the bathing suit. We’re going to be honest—shopping for swimwear isn’t our all-time favorite activity. But when there is a plethora of adorable cuts, shapes, colors and sizes at your fingertips, it can actually be quite a blast! We recently decided to start scoping out swimsuits at one of our favorite stores: Target! Thanks to its varied (and incredibly affordable) options, we found a ton of fun and flattering swimsuits that can be easily mixed and matched for any occasion. Check out our swimwear styling tips for feeling cute and confident this summer season!
We like to think that a black bikini is the beach version of the LBD—versatile, chic and appropriate for an infinite number of occasions. Bonus: Black bikini tops and bottoms can be mixed and matched with almost every other bikini separate and beach accessory already in your closet.
