Black and white are classic colors that never go out of style. That holds true when it comes to this white ruffle swimsuit. I have always owned black separates because I like to mix and match them with other solid colors or prints. I showed you a two pieces bikini set consisting of black bottoms and a fuchsia top in one of my recent posts.
The white ruffle swimsuit I’m wearing here is done in a classic feminine style. It will satisfy most modest tastes and I love the low cut back and ruffles for added accent and drama.
I will be honest with you and tell you that I have a love-hate relationship with white swimsuits. Unfortunately the downfall of this white ruffle swimsuit is that it will not last as long compared to a dark color one. The sand, salt, sun, or pool chemicals tend to do a number on it pretty quickly. I don’t feel too terribly about this one being ruined within a season because I didn’t break the bank getting it. It was a Target find. If you’d rather stay away from white, it is available in black as well. I’m sure the black version is similarly striking.
Again, just as in my previous post, I used a large rectangle scarf as a coverup. This one has been in my wardrobe for a while but I have linked some similar ones.
My pink slides and their understated bow are a more stylish alternative to the perennial flip flops. I will only caution you to be careful with them around water if you go for a suede option as I did. Ultimately I would only wear them to get to the pool but will tuck them in my bag once there. I wouldn’t want any stray splashes to ruin the suede. (I have carried them under my umbrella while I dashed barefoot to my car across the Target parking lot, just saying!)
My fun hat (or a less attention calling fedora style) is always with me at the beach or pool. I try my hardest to protect my skin from sun damage and I don’t mind adding a cute accessory to my swim outfit! This hat came in three colors with different wording and I have to say it is quickly selling out. Only the white one is available on the DSW website and a few of the natural color available on Amazon. I couldn’t find the black one anywhere but have linked the other two below.
