Must-Have #1: A Strapless Suit
Whether you favor a two-piece bandeau or simply a strapless one-piece, always have a version of this style on standby for when tan lines aren’t welcome. This bare-neck look begs for a cool statement necklace or earring, so feel free to accessorize.

Must-Have #2: The Perfect Maillot
We love a sleek and simple one-piece. Choose one that fits snuggly and flatters all of your favorite assets. This silhouette will feel chic at a stylish pool party, and will also come in handy when diving and wading through the ocean. Opt for black or rich jewel tones for ultimate sophistication.

Must-Have #3: An Itty-Bitty Bikini
Everyone needs a classic string bikini. We suggest choosing separates in colors that will mix and match easily, or you can combine stripes and polka dots for an effortlessly cool look. We love this old beach favorite for its timeless shape, but also as a great layering element under cover-ups and tanks.
