This retro-fab look has been a trend for a while. From flowery prints to crochet necklines, the possibilities have become endless. The best part about this better-than-average-swimsuit is its ability to flatter all. It covers the middle ground that makes it a two piece with increased coverage that most reach for a one piece to achieve. The truth to two pieces doesn’t have to be a secret- especially when it comes to that adorable high-waisted look. Now, the secret is out, and I’m here to give you my favorite ways to put this trend in your wardrobe.

Find a fun neckline. Most bathing suits are very straight forward: pushup, triangle top, bandeau. There’s nothing wrong with playing it safe, but it’s the styles that stand out that end up turning heads. A simple, high-waisted bottom can leave opportunity for more detail on the top. Whether you find a gorgeous crochet neckline or ruffle detail that pulls out your girly side, it’s a chance to get the coverage of a one piece without being stuck with one pattern. Have a bigger bust? Opt for a higher neckline. Trust me, this doesn’t have to mean boring and you’ll feel more confident in the long run.

Feeling flirty on the bottom? Get funky with patterns and styles. We’ve all seen that criss-cross detail down the side, and whether you feel ready or not to rock that kind of detail on your hips, it’s not your only option. Find a cheeky bottom to accentuate a different part of your bum or even a floral pattern for some summer fun while staying feminine. The coverage of the bottom doesn’t have to strip it away from those fun print options, and you can mix and match your current top and bottoms, giving you multiple suits in one!

Use this trend as a way to accentuate your best feature out on the water! The high-waisted bikini is the perfect compliment to your summer water wardrobe. Most people find themselves feeling the most insecure in a bathing suit and maybe even long for a two piece to be an option. I’m here to tell you that it can be. This trend is a favorite from decades in the past because it has always been and always will be one thing- flattering. It celebrates women’s bodies for what they are, which is beautiful and classy. It hugs their bust and flatters their hips, all while giving women everywhere that desired fun-in-the-sun look.

The best part of this trend is its ability to get any girl confident in a suit. This style may seem ‘retro,’ but don’t be fooled. Your wardrobe will be far from boring when these suits hit your closet. Between the price point and style options, there is no excuse. So step up your suit game. The time is now!
