Summer's here and it's time to do some bikini shopping! We're pretty sure you've booked your trips to the beach and you're now planning what you're bringing with you to parade around the beach in.
With swimwear, it's all about finding the right style so you can give all the confidence you want during the season. You'll be seeing a lot of texture when it comes to bikinis, from smocked to ruffled to ribbed. But even with all of these styles being offered, the classic one-piece and well-cut bikinis are always in.

Every woman needs that one piece of swimsuit that feels like you're wearing something as elegant as an evening dress but still something you enjoy getting wet in—and the maillot is the perfect piece for it.
Ruffled trims, high-cut bottoms, subtle ruchings add a sweet detail to a more daring two-piece bikini style. There are more than enough ways to stand out while you're at the beach when you're wearing these sexy-sleek bikinis.
While the summer heat calls for the latest swimwear, it's just right that you pack a matching coverup—especially when you're staying at a luxury resort. Caftans are considered to be the hero of the coverup family. Not only does it not class with your swimsuit, you feel fully covered and elegant while wafting from the beach to the bar in this get-up.
