4 Swimwear Styles in Neutral Tones to Try This Season

4 Swimwear Styles to Try This Season | www.girlmeetsgold.com

Whether you’re heading on vacation or prepping for the warm weather season, there’s a swimwear style to suit you. I’m breaking down the must-have styles below!

Strapless

If you don’t bring a strapless swimsuit on vacation, did you even go on vacation? Ok, yes of course you did, but it’s truly a must-have style in any woman’s collection. If tan lines aren’t your thing or you want a style that wears seamlessly under your vacation dresses and spaghetti straps—a strapless or bandeau style is for you. Tip: look for one with a removable halter strap to go from sporty to strapless in an instant. Something without underwire will also be most comfortable.

Sporty

Whenever heading on vacation, I always make sure to bring something that will be both comfy and practical. Leave the strapless styles for sunbathing, something strappy in a sporty silhouette will be your best friend for snorkeling, jet skiing, swimming—and everything in between. Look for styles with thicker straps for added support!

Feminine

For something sweet to pair with shorts hanging by the pool, a flirty and feminine swimsuit will be your best friend. Look for ruffles or sheer details like lace and crochet or try a flirty off-the-shoulder silhouette. A well-placed ruffle or a hint of sleeve can be just the extra bit of coverage you crave. Tip: white makes a tan pop!

One-Piece

One-piece swimsuits have made a major comeback in the recent years. And with good reason. They’re a great way to stay both comfortable and cool and can offer plenty of coverage or show plenty of skin. They can be sleek, chic and classic and still just as sexy (if that’s your thing). Pick your style preference—sporty, feminine or strapless—and I promise you’ll feel confident in this silhouette this season.

10 Straw Bags On Trend for Spring and Summer

10 Straw Bags On Trend for Spring

With spring officially in full swing and summer on the horizon, I wanted to share my newest favorite bag trend—the straw bag. From straw to rattan to woven, this trend has been going strong this season and I don't see it going anywhere anytime soon, especially with the start of summer around the corner.

I wanted to take a moment to share my two favorite styles in my collection with you plus 8 more on-trend styles to take you through this season and beyond. Bonus points for all of them being under $100!

circle straw bag

A style I'm sure you've been seeing this season is the rattan circle bag and honestly, if you're going to get one rattan or straw bag for spring, I'd go with a circle style. I was skeptical at how much wear I'd get out this bag beyond my tropical vacation and I must say, I've been reaching for it with all of my casual combos just as much as I was during my vacation. The circle silhouette is right on-trend and the style adds a chic and effortless look to any outfit. I personally prefer this natural tone because it goes with everything. 

Sizing tip: Make sure you find one that's big enough to fit your phone! My exact bag is from Kinilush

woven clutch

Another one in my collection is this Free People straw clutch and I love how it can do double duty in terms of wearability. You can use it as a clutch for a summer vacation but it also comes with a strap that can be worn crossbody or on the shoulder for daily wear. It's not often you find a style that can do both. 

I wanted to round up a few more straw bags I'm eying for the season and hope you love them as much as I do. What are your thoughts on this trend for spring?

As always, thank you so much for reading and enjoy your spring and summer!
