Summer starts in two weeks, but this California heat wave has already gotten me in the summer mood. This years' must have bikini style? The easy, playful, adorable "flounce" bikini top. The flounce top is fun and more easygoing than your average bandeau top. With my favorite swim designers at Wildfox giving us more and more adorable designs and Victoria's Secret giving us the trend in more affordable prices… how can you say no?
I started off my weekend in my favorite "My little pony" inspired Wildfox Bikini (pictured above and below). The flouncy top features pastel rainbow stripes with tiny "wildfox" logos written in cursive along every other line. The top has two layers, one that has an elastic band underneath for a snug fit (like an elastic bralette) and the other is the loose but sturdy top layer. This adorable bikini matches my playful personality perfectly… especially with the two "wildfox" logo hearts that are hidden on the bottom layer ; ) Flash safely, ladies.
While the pastel rainbow suit sold out faster than you could say "double rainbow", the 70's inspired rainbow suit is still available here.
One of the best things about these flounce bikini tops is that they can easily double as a crop top or a fun bralette. Thanks to our California heat wave, I opted to go sans shirt and threw on my Doc Martins (snake stomping boots), my Volcom overalls (get them here) and my "USA" tankini from Wildfox when I went riding this weekend:
Luckily, my second Wildfox flounce top look IS available online and IT's ON SUPER SALE !?! Get it here and wear in on the 4th of July!
