This summer has already been filled with new trends, styles, and fashion statements.  The cool thing about fashion is that there will always be new trends coming into play along with old trends circling back around!  There are many popular swimsuit styles of the summer but here are three that are the most stylish!

  • Peplum Swimsuits. Chelsea Crockett - Peplum Swimsuits Remember when peplum tops were the hottest trend of the year?  They’re making a comeback but in swimsuits instead!  They’re the cutest tops to pair with some patterned high-waisted bottoms.  Look at the picture on the right for example.  You can mix and match swimsuits for the perfect look!
  • Wrap Swimsuits.  Wrap swimsuits can come in many different styles and colors.  If you’ve never seen these, most have strings or straps that wrap around your stomach or just below your chest.  They might not be the best if you want to avoid tan lines, but they’re super cute and stylish!
  • Off-the-Shoulder Swimsuits.  It seems like all the best shirt styles are making their way into the swimsuit world!  You can find off-the-shoulder swimsuits in both one and two pieces.  If you prefer a two piece, mix and match different colors and patterns to find the perfect look!

Which style is your favorite?  Comment and let me know below! 🙂

Tips to Make Swimsuits Last a Lifetime

If you have a tropical trip planned for summer break/live by the ocean/swim a lot during the summer, your swimsuits take a beating! And as you know, swimsuits aren’t cheap. If you keep your swimsuits clean and maintained they last so much longer and you can wear your fav for years and years. To save some $$ and keep your suits usable for longer, follow these easy steps!

  1. Rinse right away: Right after you get out of the ocean or pool, rinse your suit right away using a garden hose or faucet. This prevents the chemicals and salt drying into the fabric!
  2. Don’t machine-wash: Wash your suits by hand to make sure they don’t lose their shape. Use cold water and gentle hand soap to prevent the colors from fading.
  3. Let them air dry: The clothes dryer will do a number on your suits. We have all taken our suits out and stared in dismay at the bra pads all crunched up in the suit’s top. When drying them, don’t dry them in sunlight to avoid fading.

To keep your fav suit in tip top shape, follow these easy steps!

XOXO, Chels

During summer, it seems that all of the hype revolves around pricey brands and products that empty out your wallet.  You have to save up your money and then spend most of it on one product.  I’ve taken note of the most popular trending products and put together a “look for less” guidebook so you can save money but still be up to date with the cutest trends!

  • Birkenstocks.  Don’t get me wrong, these shoes have become a major trend.  Chelsea Crockett - Triangl SwimsuitBut each pair is usually around $100!  Kohl’s, Payless, Target, etc. all sell sandals with the same exact styles as Birkenstocks for prices as cheap as $15!
  • Triangl Swimsuits.  These swimsuits can be super pricey but tons of stores have started coming out with similar styles!  Target, Victoria’s Secret, and several online stores are all good places to look.
  • Rayban Sunglasses.  Raybans are usually very long-lasting, high-quality products, but if you want a cheap pair with a similar wayfarer or aviator style, check out Urban Outfitters, Forever 21, or H&M.
  • Ripped/boyfriend Jeans.  Although it’s useful to invest in a good pair of jeans, you may just want a pair to wear every once in a while.  Forever 21 sells quality jeans for much cheaper than other stores like American Eagle or Express.
  • Boho Jewelry.  Jewelry that has a Boho feel to it isn’t very hard to find!  My favorite places to look are Francesca’s and Urban Outfitters.

What’s your favorite trend of the summer?  Let me know below!

Everywhere I turn, swimsuits are being advertised in every store, magazine, and website! That officially means goodbye to winter and hello to warm weather! There are tons of different styles to choose from, but there are three that are at the top of the charts for summer 2016!

High neck swimsuits are super stylish and comfortable! When I first saw this type of suit, I was worried about tan lines and how it would look after a long day in the sun. Instead, I bought one for nightChelsea Crockett - Triangl swims, waterparks, or hot tub nights! They’re more secure and comfortable then a normal bikini which is perfect for a day on waterslides.

I’ve recently been seeing a lot of different fabrics of swimsuits, and they’re so cute! Some stores have been selling crocheted bikini tops or wetsuit material sets. They’re different than the basic bikini! The brand Triangl is known for their unique material used in making their swimsuits (like the ones on the left!). They resemble a wetsuit so they’re stretchy and flexible!

I love wearing one-pieces. A lot of the time, they’re my go-to swimwear! They’re easy, comfy, and give off a modest look. A lot of one-pieces have a fun twist to them, maybe it’s a unique pattern, cutouts, or the type of material. All you have to do is look for one that’s your style! Once I found some that worked for me, I fell in love with one-pieces!

Of course you have the bikinis, the simple one pieces, the bandeau tops, the list goes on and on. It seems in the past year, so many new styles have suddenly made their way into the fashion world. They’re super fun and unique (despite their sometimes nasty tan lines!). Here are some styles that are a must-have in your wardrobe!Chelsea Crockett - High Neck Swimsuit

We’ve all seen the high-neck shirts and dresses that are to die for. Well now they have high-neck bikini tops! Stores like Forever 21, Pacsun, and Victoria’s Secret have all started to carry them. Although I wouldn’t recommend wearing them for tanning or being out in the sun all day, they’re still very different and fun to play around with!

It seems as though high waisted shorts are still pretty popular. And to follow those, there are now high waisted swimsuit bottoms as well! Once again I wouldn’t recommend them for tanning, but for a pool party or a day at the water park why not? You could buy a plain colored pair and match it with multiple tops! Whatever your style is.

In my opinion, one piece swimsuits are extremely overrated. There are tons and tons of unique styles and patterns that you can rock! Plus, modest is hottest :). Let me know what style you like the best!
