I’ve shared a variety of swim-related stories, from
the brands I always recommend to my friends to the number one swim brand celebrities are wearing this summer and the swimwear trend that weirdly makes me feel super rich. To add to your editor-approved swimsuit shopping list, today I’m sharing the rotating set of bikinis I wear on repeat.
There are certain details that I look for in a swimsuit, and each of these styles has earned a special spot in my summer rotation this year. I’ll be the first to admit I own a ridiculous number of swimsuits, so a style really has to earn my approval to gain wear time in my pool-hopping world. Whether I’m lounging in the sun in Los Angeles or practicing my best
“Barbie feet” pose on vacation in Greece, these are the select bikinis (and a couple of one-pieces) that I trust and wear the most. Shop the bikinis I’m posting about and wearing the most this summer below.
I’ve had my eye on the London-based swimwear brand Hunza G ever since it debuted the two-piece ruffled set (which I also own). I finally got my hands on this bandeau-style top, and it’s become my go-to when I want to focus on tanning for the day.
I first saw this Tularosa swimsuit on Revolve’s PR manager, Simone, and immediately added it to my shopping cart. It’s insanely flattering, and I love the color-blocking detail.
Shop the matching Retro Bottom ($74).
We introduced you to this Italian-based brand a couple of years ago, and since then, retailers like Farfetch and Net-a-Porter have picked up the eye-catching swimwear line.
I’m sure you’ve seen this swimwear trend on your Instagram feed. I’m a fan and early adopter of the chain-belt-and-bikini look. As for the bikini bottoms I’m wearing, I own the style in two colors from Reina Olga, which makes the perfect cheeky bottoms, in my opinion.
I’ll admit I was saving this blue-and-white bikini for the perfect Santorini occasion. Two things to note: The straps are adjustable, and the bottoms are very low.
Okay, so this isn’t a bikini, but it still deserves a shout-out. The things I like about this Static Swimwear one-piece are the deep-V neckline and the low-cut back.
As I’ve mentioned before, Monica Hansen is the unexpected bikini brand that I’ve worn the most. If you’re into the loincloth trend, I highly suggest the California Dreaming string bottoms.
The celeb-approved brand Sommer Swim is known for minimalistic silhouettes and classic colors and prints.
I discovered this up-and-coming swim brand thanks to a DM on Instagram. I was looking for more string bikinis to add to my collection and fell hard for this fruit-print one.
This particular bikini is no longer available at Aerie, but the high-rise bikini-bottom style is a go-to of mine. Plus, the brand offers extremely affordable options.
This particular style made me feel super rich when I wore it.
Here’s another bikini from Oseree that I’ve been living in this summer. I particularly like the scoop neck and ultra-thin straps.
If you’re looking for a simple bikini made from quality Italian materials, I can’t recommend this Monica Hansen Beachwear one enough.
My favorite thing to do is wear this black bikini top to the beach, and then style it with high-rise shorts for a post-beach look.
