Making a Splash | Swimsuits

Memorial Day is next weekend and as the nation breaks out the SPF, fires up the grill and kicks off the un-official start of summer, we are faced with some major decisions… it’s time to shop for swimsuits.

Talk about one big bag of mixed emotions. Excitement, fright, sadness and trepidation, we can no longer hide from that huge cheeseburger we chowed down, those cookies we had one too many of, or the times we pounced on the snooze button instead of getting our tushes to bootcamp. Choosing a swimsuit can be as stressful as taking the SATs all over again. Then again, maybe you’ve been blessed with the bathing suit gene and are jumping for joy about adding a new piece to your collection. Well in that case…you clearly suck and I mean that in the nicest way humanly possible. *fingers crossed*

Some of our contributing Trendsetters met up in our virtual hangout and picked our favorite swimsuits to share with The Trend Tribe.

  1. I LOVE that Marc by Marc Jacobs! I must run out to Neiman’s this week to see it in person. I want, want, want it!

    • Wendy, you would look absolutely ADORABLE in that Marc by Marc Jacobs bandini! This is a sneak-preview since they are still on pre-order, but I bet if you call Neiman Marcus at Fashion Island they would be able to help you!

      • I wonder if it comes with a removable strap for around the neck. It is super cute.

        • That is a very good question. I am not sure. I really think the color combo is perfect for you.

  2. I’ve decided I’m definitely going for a chic one-piece this year. I like the first one, in coral.

    • Hi Nicole, thank you for your comment! I was not blessed with the “bikini gene” so I stick with the one-pieces. I really love Beth’s picks also!

  3. I totally love that sailor suit!! Such a fun punch of colors!

    • I’m such a sucker for the whole patriotic theme! Love it!!!

  4. Love the Bandeau ruffle top, Nic!
