Lexi Like's: 2013 Swimsuit edition

Hello to all my fashionista's!
I literally cannot fathom how June is already over and the summer is already a 1/3 of the way over. I hope everyone has started to work on their tan lines and has had time to hit the beach at least once! With summer officially started, every girl needs an awesome bathing suit to show off in! The three major types of bathing suites are the bikini, one-piece, and cutout. My favorite styles include the sporty (giving athleticism a feminine twist), retro (high waisted w/ prints), black/ white (a classic), pop of color (bright, fun colors), and boho (easy and carefree).

Sporty: This is a limited edition swimsuit. The bottoms look like boy shorts & the top looks like a sports bra. Even though the shapes are more boyish, the texture looks like leather which is totally sexy! $162 for the set.

Retro: This bathing suit comes in blue as well as maroon. High waisted bottoms are the hottest bathing suit trend. I love this because my washboard abs sometimes have a bit of fat over them & I need a way to hide it! The bows on the top and bottoms as well as the rushing on the bottoms are fun accents. The polka dots make this so retro-cuteness! $44 for top and bottom, each sold separately.
Urban Outfitters Retro Bikini

Black/ White: I have this bikini and I am obsessed! I love the trend of the bandeau top for bikinis. Also, it hides that unsightly under-boob bugle. Top is on sale for $23.76 & bottoms are on sale for $14.25.
Asos Black/ White Bikini

POP: Mint is thee color of summer and gold is my favorite accent color. The crystals also give this a lux feel. An easy suit to mix & match other pieces with. Top is on sale for $46.50 & bottoms are on sale for $25.50
Victoria Secret Bikini

Boho: This suit comes in watermelon, black, creme, citrus, & paprika. Fringe is very boho and gives it that 'I don't care vibe even though half my clothing is shredded". My favorite color is the paprika. Add different bottoms in a solid or add a texture bottom for variety. Top is $73 & bottoms are $68.

One Piece:
Sporty: Marc Jacobs is nailing this sporty look! The navy and aqua color look amazing in this use of colorblocking.  The peplum gives this sporty silhouette a girly feel. Suit sells for $177.

Retro: Stripes are the epidemy of 60's and retro! Peplums have been huge for the past two seasons & they are still prevailing as seen here. Peplums can be very flattering on all figures. Also, the way they place the stripes brings your the eye in which will make your waist smaller. This one-piece goes for $149.99.
ModCloth One Piece

Black/ White: Black is always a classic and this is your LBB (little black bathing-suit). The deep v-neck and the completely open back are gorgeous. I like the flared skirt/ bottom as it will hide a larger bottom. Plus, the belt is detachable and it is easy to pair with a pair of jeans after a dip in the pool. This piece is a splurge for $384.

POP: This swimsuit comes in mint, coral, and black. The rushing on the top along with the ruffles show off your bust. The back has the tie clasp and rushing on the butt. If your stomach is a problem area, this is perfect to draw attention away. This swimsuit is on clearance for $26.99, sweet deal!

Boho: Crochet is very boho fresh. This swimsuit is amazing but very revealing! For a one-piece almost everything is out, or just slightly hidden. This bathing suit hopefully comes with confidence to show off that much skin! This suit sells for $168.
Sporty: Another way to work a cutout; use mesh instead of skin! The halter neck makes this feel sporty but with the open back and deep v-neck it gives it this sexy feel. You can purchase this for $50.91.
Asos Sporty Cutout

Retro: One may not think of Free People as 'retro' but this swimsuit reminds me of an 80's leo! The super highwaisted bottoms hide the tummy but the cutout in the middle draws the attention a bit higher up. The cutout followed by the rushing draws the eyes up to your bust, always a plus! This cutout is sold for $246.
Free People Cutout

Black/ White: This swimsuit has the cutout in the front as well as the back. What I love more then the high waisted bottom, the zig zag cutout! I have never seen a swimsuit that uses such an avant-garde shape. Definitely makes a statement! This unique design sells for $313.
POP: This swimsuit comes in yellow and black with a mint bow at the hip. I am obsessed with cutouts and the deep v-neck, open back, and side cutout is perfect. This lets you be covered up but it shows skin in areas where a girl won't mind showing off. This cutout one piece is sold for $120.
Urban Outfitters Cutout

Boho: This is a simpler take on the boho trend. The fringe on the v-neckline gives it that boho feel but the black makes it much sleeker. The band around the waist that leads to the double band in the back is an unexpected twist. Asos sells this swimsuit for $54.30.
