"I love a good high-waist suit with a high-leg cut. Not so much a trend, but one thing about my decision for swimwear this summer is how it's made. Because I wear swim so often during the summer, I want to make sure it's produced sustainably and lasts through the season with the quality of the material. Both of these styles offer either a high-waist or high-leg cut and are sustainably produced."
"When it comes to swimwear coverage, I'm one of those people who come from a place of more is more, so I'll definitely be skipping all the barely there bikini bottoms we've been seeing as of late."
Wearing: High-Waisted Bikini Sets
"Instead, I'll be sticking with my trusty (and conveniently on-trend) high-waisted bikini sets. I love them all, from simple to printed or embellished, and at the moment, this one by Leslie Amon is at the top of my wish list. I'm obsessed with the subtly two-tone color combo and how it almost looks like you just went in the water halfway and then came out."
"This year, I'll be skipping the super-colorful/-patterned suits. As much as I love bold color, I'm loving tonal shades right now, especially in the sun. I do believe in a slight pop of color, but I feel patterns on the beach distract from the chic, simple beauty of the suit and a woman's body."
Wearing: Rhinestone Buckles
"Instead, I'll be wearing rhinestone buckles! Simple suits with a touch of bold."
