The 8 Millennial Pink Swimsuits You Need This Summer
Regina George and her minions once said that you need to wear pink on Wednesdays. Thirteen years later in 2017, pink about this: can you imagine yourself wearing it all day at the beach?
For a NYC transplant like me, wearing a bit of pastel at night and on the beach is not something I’d usually do. But in this case, I’m gonna make an exception here. Whether it be from the boardwalk or sidewalk, no other swimsuit shade can make a better transition from day to night than millenial pink.
1. The Mileybu Bikini Top
Still obsessed over Miley Cyrus’ “Malibu” music video? Believe me, I also can’t get over the cutesy frilly looks Miley’s been sporting lately. While she’s been mainly wearing a shit ton of white clothing in the video, get a splash of pink in that ‘lil bikini top. Throw on some high-waisted cutoffs and a cross body bag and Boomerang that “Malibu” dance with your besties!
2. The “Heading Down to Cabo” Bikini Set
When in doubt, never question the fact that you NEED to have a matching bikini set if you’re heading down to Cabo. While finding the perfect bikini may be the worst kind of hell, let me save you from drowning your sorrows in your margarita. This ’90s-esque halter top makes your boobs look bigger and fuller while the bottom gives you that Gisele-esque butt you’ve been dreaming of since you were 11.
3. The Dominatrix Daisy Dukes
If you are scared about having your bikini top slide off by accident, don’t forget about the amount of security you need when you need to keep your bottoms secure! Although my butt ain’t big like Kim’s, this killer bikini bottom from Strange Bikinis is literally the Hand of God. You tell me, WHO can get over the lace-up deets?! Match this with a lace-up top for that ultimate beach thotty look.
4. The Classic Bandeau Top
If baby pink ain’t your thang, you can always try a darker hue with this beeeyootiful coral top. It might not be your traditional basic millennial pink, but it’ll keep your entire beach look fresh to death with a matching bottom. When you don’t feel like wearing a bandeau top alone, you can always use it as a bra to match with a cute seersucker ’90s-esque square neck top, satin sweats and sneakerdrilles.
5. The J.Lo Swimsuit You Need to Snag a Man In
Millennial pink may only be seen in its solid iteration, but Beach Riot takes the color outta basic bitch territory. Nicole Hanriot, the designer and kween of Newport Beach chic, channels her inner Donatella by recreating the J.Lo look. Need to snag a man on your first date? Wear this bad beauty with tousled hair, layered necklaces (as long as you don’t wear a choker!) and a sheer maxi skirt with a side slit for that iconic Grammys-esque look. Before you step outside the house, spritz some J. Lo Miami Glow.
6. The Key to My Heart Bodysuit-esque Swimsuit
When was the last time you actually wore a swimsuit on dry land? If you are stuck in NYC all summer with nowhere to go, snag this swimsuit and rock it as a bodysuit. Not only can it wick the sweat away, you will stay cool while you look fire as eff. You can also wear this at night while you’re out bar hopping with your girlfriends. See how versatile it is?! Believe me, you will never regret your purchase.
7. The Baewatch
Who else is excited for the new Baywatch? Now that it’s almost here, Kulani Kinis reboots the iconic high-cut silhouette with a splash of pink. While classic can run the risk of looking basic, go for a statement shoe like a rainbow slide.
8. The Barbarella Swimsuit
Do you remember that one time when your summer fling blasted Arctic Monkeys in his car and mentioned how much he loved Barbarella? This little pink dream is the closest thing to what Jane Fonda wore, but with a ’90s Versace twist. Now that he ain’t in your life anymore, make him think about what he’s missing the moment you slip this on.
