BIKINI SEASON 2013: Hey, sexy lady!

sexy

Often, human beings confuse the term trashy with sexy. No, you don’t have to put on perspex platforms and string, Ice-T’s Coco bikinis to look sexy enough by the pool and no, you don’t need to wear garments that risk exposing your lady parts. You can look the part by wearing swimwear that covers and bares in all the right places and pair that bikini up with clothing and accessories with just the right amount of vixen. Club sequins, peep-toe pumps (yes, I’ve seen swimming pool goers wearing them, wishing they would slip so they would learn that those shoes are not meant for beach cruisin’) and underwear (we know Beach Bunny does the whole lingerie bikini look, they actually look like bikinis, your Agent Provocateur padded bra is gorgeous but for your bf’s eyes only) are banned from any pool or beach, so is heavy makeup and false eyelashes. You can be sexy with just a bikini and a nice cover-up! Here’s a list of shapes that will definitely give you that sensual siren look.

Hello tan lines! It’s risky and yes, you will get marks of straps all over your torso. Is it sexy without being trashy? Hell, yeah! Whether you go for a one-piece with cut-outs or for a bikini with mutli-strap details, this is one of the best ways to get that sexy lady look.

  • Herve Leger
  • River Island
  • Herve Leger
  • Topshop

Second skin: One of my all-time favorites! The nude bikini is great when you are sporting a great tan (keep it inside your luggage if you are still corpse white), neutrals clash beautifully with sun-kissed skin. Remember that Bo Derek one-piece, beach moment? She was wearing a nude swimsuit.

  • River Island
  • New Look
  • Miu Miu
  • H&M

Itsy Bitsy: Some may say it’s for athletic bodies only, for small breasted girls. Well, guess what? You’ll never know until you try it! I’m a big fan or this shape and I happen to have a full chest, a natural one. What the triangle shape does for me? It lifts them up, some people have even asked me if they are fake.

  • Melissa Odabash
  • Isabel Marant
  • Missoni
  • Gucci

Take the plunge! If you are not sure about the cut-outs, if you want to show some skin in a one-piece, the plunging swimsuit is just the right thing for you! If you are afraid of a nip slip, try one with back-tie for more support!
