Hot Town, Summer in the City: 25 Sizzling Swimsuits
We know it’s still April but we’re already feeling a toasty vibe in the air and can’t wait to bask in the sunny glow of hot summer days. With that in mind, it’s almost swimsuit season! Naturally, we’ve rounded up a whole bunch of smokin’ little numbers, from one-piece to two-piece, striped to floral, neon to monochrome, and everything in between.
2. Pop Art One-Piece ($98): Inspired by pop art prints from the 60s, this sleek one-piece would also work great as a top.
3. Kushcush One Piece ($167): This dreamy print makes us think of deep blue seas and underwater creatures.
4. Punk Floral Bikini ($44 and up): It’s a tall order to call a floral print “punk” but we do love the contrasting hues in this bright bikini.
5. Beach Riot Colorblock One-Piece ($133): Speaking of bright colors, this one-piece has 80s written all over it.
6. Hurley Geo-Stripe Bikini ($82): Inspired by tribal patterns and textiles, we love the boho vibe of this two-piece.
7. Jazz Club Fringe One Piece ($200): We admit, this looks a little bit like the top half of an ice skating outfit from the early 90s, but it’s still kind of awesome. Pretty perfect for a bachelorette or 4th of July beach weekend.
8. Reversible Cut Out Swimsuit ($165): This. Is. Reversible! What more do you need to know?
9. Zinke Starboard One Piece ($132): Pastel hues and a geometric print make this piece as modern as it is pretty.
10. Painted Neon Bikini ($140): Black boots with a bikini? Why not? :)
11. Yes Master Geo One-Piece ($68): This tie dye style halter is another one that would look great with a high-waisted skirt and statement necklace.
12. American Dream ($65): Now this is a Memorial Day or 4th of July swimsuit if we’ve ever seen one!
13. Mara Hoffman Rainbow Bikini ($220): We love the flirty bounce of the top on this pretty patterned piece.
15. Geo Pattern Bikini ($24): Another option with a flowy top layer, we’re digging the super bold prints and colors in this fun bikini.
16. Lauren Moffatt Challenger Bikini ($198): Hello there stripes, have you met color block?
17. Textile Pattern Bikini ($27): We do love us any print inspired by traditional textiles.
18. Mara Hoffman Pow Wow One-Piece ($275): This might be our favorite one-piece in the lot! It manages to be elegant and sexy all at the same time.
20. Fringe Bikini ($154): Fringe is a great way to make the top of any bikini a little more modest.
21. Day Dreamer Sea Green Swimsuit ($151): Now that is some neon! Love the lace detail on the back of this suit.
23. Ikat Fringe Bikini ($160): More fringe! Love the combination of Ikat patterns and flirty fringe.
25. Mara Hoffman Luau Bikini ($229): Lastly, our favorite bikini of the bunch! It’s got chevrons, multiple prints, and two hooks in the back. So lovely!
What swimwear will you sport this summer? Tell us in the comments below!
Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
