If you're anything like me and probably about 98% of the other people in this country, you can't wait to see warmer temperatures, blooming flowers, and the arrival of tank tops and flip flops. Obviously moving into spring also signifies another important time of year, spring break! Whether you'll be traveling solo, with a group of girls, or with your significant other you'll want to be prepared to look super cute for any occasion, but particularly when you hit the beach. Isn't that what spring break is really all about, fabulous swimwear and soaking up the sun (and maybe a few fruity drinks and cute coeds thrown in the mix)?
L*SPACE Swimwear understands how important it is to look your best while still feeling good, so their 2014 line is stocked with flattering styles, ranging from athletic suits to fringed designs. For something a little different, or if you prefer a bit more tummy coverage, check out their Free Love Multi monokini. With a funky multi-color print and an attention-demanding black fringe at the bust line, it's guaranteed to stand out on the sand. If you're more of the sporty type, they have plenty of suits to accommodate any water or beach sport, but the Mantra is the perfect mix of sports-bra support and sexy tie-side skimpy bottom, so you can show the skin you want but keep the rest
If your spring break plans mostly revolve around a chair and an umbrella topped drink, you'll want to make sure your swimsuit can draw attention even while your relax and the flirty styles of Lolli Swimwear are guaranteed to do that. This year's collection is covered in strategically placed bows which add a bit of girly, but maybe a slightly naughty one at that, charm. Their XOXO suit has very unique ruffled bottoms which are innocent in the front but offer a Brazilian cut in the back, a perfect sassy sweet combination to the candy colors of the suit, while their Carnival suit features a more supportive multi-colored off-shoulder crop top but a skimpy back coverage bottom that has a big bow
to "wrap up" your rearview.
Last but not least, if suitcase space is limited you'll need swimwear that can multitask and perhaps the perfect choice for that would be the Dark Night Captain swimsuit by Maaji Swimwear. An adorable ruffle top and seamless bottom in basic black allow you to look chic with a floppy hat and oversized glasses while you sip a sophisticated drink, but you can then reverse the pieces into a funky multi-colored print which will be perfect for a beach party at night, beverage-based games, or dancing the night away in foam, so it's a swimsuit capable of handling nearly any spring break scenario.
Our recommendation, of course, would be to pack all of these sexy suits but you do need to save room for a couple of cover-ups (preferably ones that can pull double duty both on and off the beach), a few pairs of flip flops, plenty of sunblock, and maybe even those bold colors of makeup you're too timid to wear at home. Throw in your mp3 player and some portable speakers and you are ready to relax, rock, or ride the waves, but hopefully all of the above!
