When it comes to bathing suits I need to have variety because they’re worn year round here in Florida.  For the most part it’s nice to be able to strolll on the beach any time of the year, but it can be a bit exhausting thinking about being bathing suit ready ALL YEAR!  With that in mind I treat my bathing suits like I do my clothes.  I look for trends and fits that flatter, rather than the itsy bitsy bikini (although I do keep one handy for those days I’m feeling brave) and I also keep an eye out for pieces that can be mixed and matched.  This year women’s swimwear is so fun and playful!  I’m loving the retro fits that are fun and flirty, color blocked two pieces that are great for mixing and matching and classic nautical stripes that never go out of style making them a great investment.  Tip: Tempted to stick to a one piece?  Try a tankini instead (see below). They give you the coverage and the option of swapping out the top or bottom for a sexier look.  Which ever style you decide to go with, Anne Cole swimwear has got you covered.  Check out my favorite bathing suits under $100.

Color Blocking: A trendy color block bikini with just the right amount of coverage!  Tip: Tie a large bright scarf off your beach bag and later on you can use it as a shrug. Color Block One Piece – $66

Stripes: This striped bikini is perfect to mix with solid pieces like the one below. Tip: When choosing stripes keep in mind that the smaller they are the smaller you look. Camel In The Sand Bikini – $36

Classics: A navy bikini is always in style and a must have for mixing and macthing. Tip: When mix and matching swimsuit pieces opt for a solid bottom.  It’s a lot easier to wear a printed top than bottom. Marilyn Halter Side Tie Bikini – $31.50

Retro: A floral print tankini is perfect for stylish moms on the go.  Tip: Keep a cotton cardigan on hand if you plan on making it a whole day at the beach. Desert Floral Tankini – $46.50

Summer Basic: A solid black swimsuit is just like your favorie little black dress – easy to wear for day or night.  Tip: Keep a maxi skirt tucked in your beach bag and you’re good to go for dinner or a stroll on the boardwalk. Lingerie Malliot One Piece  – $78

Stylish:  A embellished one piece swimsuit screams glamour!  It’s the bathing suit you take on your vacation and then sit by the pool and sip on a pina colada! 🙂 Beaded Bikini– $52
