During the summer, I love a good striped swimsuit. They are classic, timeless and if they swimsuit is designed well, the stripes are also flattering! One thing I keep in mind when buying swimsuits is making sure they are budget friendly. For a small piece of stretchy fabric, they can get pretty expensive! All of the ones I included are under $75!
If you would look on my porch right now, my room, shower or bathroom, you would find swimsuits everywhere. Their either soaking wet from getting a bath to help them last longer, half way dry or waiting to be worn again for beach and pool days! At least half of them are striped and it makes me so happy when I look at them!
One style I am drooling over for summer are one shoulder swimsuits. One piece and bikinis! This stripes are an added bonus! Do you remember when off the shoulder tops were all the rage? Now it’s switched to one side suits. This swimsuit from J.Crew Factory sold out over 4th of July weekend and I sure know why. I loveeee the ruffle on the top. It’s the perfect distraction from a smaller chest and feels extra girly!
J.Crew has a super similar blue and white striped suit with a ruffle (it comes in red to!). It’s a little more on the pricey side for me but if you watch it closely, it’s bound to go on sale soon! J.Crew is always having some kind of sale. I found a few really beautiful similar striped swimsuits like this ruffled one piece (under $35) and this striped one piece (under $12).
Some of my favorite shorts to wear with my swimsuits are denim cut offs! I usually buy all of my cut offs from American Eagle. I own a bunch of light pairs and a few dark pairs. Actually, if you looked in my drawer, I’d be slightly embarrassed with how many I actually own. 🙈 Their super comfortable, match with any swimsuit and can be paired with girly tops and sandals during a warm summer day when your not at the beach or pool.
Style Tip: If you wear high-waisted swimuit, you can roll the top down so it does not stick out of your shorts! I’ve put on really low denim shorts before and had to laugh at how funny my high waist swimsuit bottoms looked. The higher the shorts are the less you will have to worry about this.
A few of my other favorite striped swimsuits that I have my eye on is this striped one shoulder top and high waisted swim bottoms (comes in red and blue!). I also love this green ruffled Aerie top and bikini bottoms. They have the most affordable swimsuits ever that are amazing quality! Last but not least is this fun rainbow colored striped top and boyfriend bottoms that will add happiness to your day!
