Bikini Style Guide

The Bikini Style Guide You’ve Been Waiting For

As summer is quickly approaching, it’s time to sort out our pool and beach day outfits. This is a whole look, and every part is essential – the swimsuit, the coverup, jewelry, shoes, accessories, and your shining confidence. 

Whether you’re looking for full coverage bathing suits, tankini tops, string bikini tops and bottoms with side ties, or high-waisted high rise bikini bottoms styles, you can create an amazing outfit with every swimwear style. We’re here to give you a couple of examples and inspiration, and you can add your personal style and confidence and create a masterpiece. 

Gold Snakeskin Thong Bikini      Copper Drinking Bottle

Animal Print Party

Wearing a matching animal print bikini is always a good idea for a pool party. The matching aspect gives you a pulled-together look, and the animal print adds some spice to your bikini. With any sort of printed swimsuit, I’d recommend having a solid color outfit on top.

With this WEEKENDER Reversible Thong Bikini Set in Gold Snakeskin, we suggest pairing it with white because it would highlight the bikini and match the hints of white under the gold. A white, woven skirt or white denim shorts would flawlessly go with this swimsuit along with a simple white t-shirt or a white linen shirt unbuttoned. For jewelry, gold or copper accent pieces would go well and a gold body chain could add to the bikini. You could go a lot of different directions with shoes, but simple tan or white sandals would tie it all together.

The PURE INDIA Copper Water Bottle would be the perfect accessory to finish off your look. Not only will you be able to stay hydrated and get all the health benefits of a copper water bottle, it will match your glowy gold look perfectly. 

Sexy Black Corset Bikini      Lacy Bikini

A Sultry Moment

An all-black bikini moment: the ultimate confidence booster. You can never go wrong with an all black bikini and the HALLE Corset Bikini Top paired with the HALLE Lace Up Bikini Bottoms have the perfect amount of coverage and support while still being sexy. The LA QUINTA Lace Bikini Set is another guaranteed showstopper, the black lace will have you feeling like a million dollars. 

Wear the HALLE swimsuit with a pair of dark-wash denim shorts and black graphic tank top for a more relaxed look, or a black woven cover-up like the HARUKO Short Kimono Beach Cover-Up. If you’re going for a more lavish outfit, for either of the bikinis, try pairing it with gold! Gold and black are the ultimate combination. A gold sarong like the MARIA Short Sarong Wrap would pull together the whole outfit. Jewelry, of course, would have to be gold, too, and it could be a chunky, statement necklace or a bunch of layering pieces. 

For the shoes, a pair of black flip flops or black sneakers would go great for a more casual look, but to dress it up, you could wear platform black sandals or even a pair of black cowgirl boots. 

Metallic Gold Bikini Top      Tunic Swimsuit Cover Up

Circular Straw Beach Bag      Natural Mineral Sunscreen

A Whole Look

Whether you’re going to a festival or the beach, this outfit will be absolutely perfect. The GOLD Bikini Triangle Top is supportive, comfortable, and flattering. The ALEXA Triangle Bikini Top is similar, but it comes in a variety of different colors, however, the metallic gold of the GOLD Bikini Triangle Top under our Charlie Tunic Beach Cover Up would look lush. 

To complement the colors in the outfit, the BELIZE Round Straw Beach Bag would be the perfect bag. And, of course, we need to bring our LA SOL All-Natural Mineral Sunscreen in our bag, especially for a festival weekend or beach days spent under the sun. 

Since the bikini is gold, simple gold jewelry would accompany the look the best. For shoes, you could go in any direction, whether that be a splash of color with a pair of red sandals, or simple tan leather flip flops, or even black cowgirl boots. You have the freedom to put your own spin on it. 

Tan Lines and Good Times

Being confident in a bikini has nothing to do with body shape and has everything to do with loving your body. That goes towards fashion as well, you can rock any outfit you want. So this summer, wear outfits out of your comfort zone and be confident doing so. 

Swimwear should boost your confidence and make you love your body. At Beachcandy, we want to help you feel your best self and more confident than ever. We prioritize feeling comfortable and supported in a bikini. 

Swimsuits and cover-up outfits are one of our favorite parts of summer because of how many different ways you can style a bikini and outfit to fit your personality and style to make sure you’re ready to rock your pool, beach, or lake day.
