Warmer weather brings with it a few guarantees: fewer layers, shorter hemlines, and (wait for it) swimsuit season. So, whether your next beach rendezvous is still months away or a part of daily life, now's the time to start thinking about swim style. But, if that drawer full of separates has you feeling frustrated, don't just toss 'em in haste. Instead, consider mixing and matching.
After all, you already mix the patterns of your everyday wardrobe, so why not do the same with your swimwear? Lucky for you, Teen Vogue has compiled some sweet and unexpected sets to get you started. The possibilities are truly endless, allowing you to breathe new life into summer staples or even incorporate some high-end pieces into your look without completely blowing your budget.
If the idea of fusing two swimsuits together sends shivers down your spine, though, just remember one rule: Keep it simple. “Create a cool connection by choosing a common color way or motif,” the magazine advises. For the even more pattern-averse, Teen Vogue has solutions, too. Keep the top or bottom solid, and pair with an exciting pattern. And, consider the beachwear-style bar raised. (Teen Vogue)
