With the long-awaited arrival of summer comes the search for the perfect swimsuit. Whether you're looking to flaunt your style or score a functional swimsuit for beach days, the pool, or elsewhere, finding the right swimsuit doesn't have to be a painstaking task. Just remember to highlight your best features, stick to your personal style with silhouettes and prints you love, and wear with confidence!
For summer 2015, the traditional bikini is playing second fiddle to two key swimwear trends: the one piece swimsuit and the high waisted bikini. While the one piece allows for covering up a bit more, you can still make a style statement with vibrant prints, bright solids, and strappy details. Prefer a two piece? The high waist bikini is making a strong comeback this summer, and it lets you to channel vintage vibes while enjoying more midriff coverage. Below are nine of my favorite on-trend swimwear styles that won't set you back more than $150.
