It’s been a day. A week. We get it. And when times get tough, sometimes the only thing that helps is Justin Bieber dressed head-to-toe in a calming shade of buttery yellow. The yellow you paint your child’s nursery, or maybe your third Porsche. Yellow that says: “It’s been a rough little while. You’ll be ok.” Yellow that says: this is, truly, the Big Fit of the Day.
While one-piece swimsuits have experienced a renaissance as of late, nothing will usurp the iconic bikini. First popularized by the likes of Bridgette Bardot, Rita Hayworth, and Ava Gardner, this timeless French style has been around since the 1940s.
But the humble two-piece has come a long way since its inception, as you can now buy a bikini in every color, cut, and pattern imaginable. Designers are also embracing mix-and-match pieces, making this once-revealing style more wearable than ever. Pair a triangle bikini top with high-waisted bottoms, cheeky string bottoms with a full-coverage top, or even mix and match patterns and fabrics. Truly, the sky’s the limit.
