Itty Bitty Bikini Time

It's bikini season, below are some of my favorite trends:

1) Solids: OK, well this isn't a trend, but solids are always a staple in any bikini wardrobe. Remember black is slimming and white is often see-through. I bought a teal colored bikini from Target. It's dark enough to keep me from looking like Free Willy in the pool, but has enough color to be fun.

TIP: Buy your bikini somewhere that offers different types of tops/bottoms. I bought one bottom and two different styles of the same top so it sometimes seems like I have 2 different bikinis, but I don't really!

*Sale alert - Target has temporarily reduced prices of swim tops and bottoms.

I bought these two versions of tops (in the same color) from Target:

Mossimo Halter
Originally: $17.99, Now $14.39

Mossimo Bandeau
Originally: $17.99, Now $14.39

I have this bottom, also from Target:

Mossimo Keyhole Bottom
Originally $17.99, Now $14.39

2) Polka Dots: These are even more popular than last year. My friend has this really cute, inexpensive one from Target:

Mossimo Bandeau Navy Dot Blue (also available in black)
Originally $17.99, Now $14.39

Mossimo Tab Bottom Navy Dot Blue
Originally $17.99, Now $14.39

: Tie bottom in this style also available here.

3) Monokini: This is popular again this year. Check this one out at Target:

Xhilaration Ruffle Monokini
Originally $29.99, Now $23.99

Bikinis worn by Hollywood stars are really eye-catching. I am an avid fan of Halle Berry and have liked the sexy bikini flaunted by the dare-bare girl on “Die Another Day”
