Swimsuit Strategy

Swimwear is increasingly expensive these days. I mean, doesn’t $50 seem like an awful lot to spend on something that you’re going to get all sandy, saltwatery, chloriney, and sun-faded? But don’t get me wrong, I have a bit of a knack for collecting cutesy bikinis (L*Space is one of my favorites!). In order to make bathing-suit shopping fun and economical, I have developed my very own swimsuit strategy: Buy pieces that can be mixed and matched.

Math time: If I buy a red bikini and a black bikini, that equals 2 bathing suits. BUT, if I wear the red top with the black bottoms, then that makes three bathing suits. And if I wear the black top with the red bottoms, that makes FOUR! See where I’m going with this?

So, the key is to start with a few suits in complimentary colors/prints:

Cute Suits

Then let the mixing begin!

And then try some matching!

And all of a sudden, you’ve stretched your money, AND your swimwear wardrobe. You suddenly have lots of swimsuit combinations, when you only bought a  few. And that is economical AND cute!

    Thank you, both! My style philosophy is about stretching your budget as far as possible. And, Anna, I know what you mean- here in Ohio, it isn’t warm enough to wear a swimsuit yet either. I can’t wait for summer weather!
