Oasis Fleur Frill Bandeau Bikini – ON SALE, $31.48
A flattering cut and feminine ruffles put this turquoise floral bikini at the top of the list.
Gingham-Skirted Halter Bikini – ON SALE, $35
The classic gingham print brings to mind summer picnics on the beach, and the skirt adds a little femininity to an otherwise simple suit.
Belle-knot Front Paisley Bikini—ON SALE, $41
The peachy color is pretty, and the bright blue bow is a nice touch. This bandeau is dainty but not too precious.

Mossimo Mix & Match 2-Piece Yellow Swimsuit — $35.98
A simple, classic style in a bold shade. This sunny suit is best with a (spray) tan.
Juniors Handkerchief Bandeau Swimsuit — $29.98
Okay, it’s a juniors bikini, so go up a size. But how cool is the top?! I also love that the pattern is only on the bottoms, and that it also comes in purple (if pink’s not your thing).
2-Piece Large Print Bandeau Swimsuit — $47.99
This bikini is classy, understated and offers a little more coverage than some of the other picks on this list—perfect for those looking for something eye-catching but not attention-grabbing.
Neon Star Bikini—ON SALE, $26
Stars, ruffles and a touch of bright pink keep a classic black bandeau from becoming boring.
Solid Neon Bow Bikini—ON SALE, $26
It’s neon chartreuse; how could you pass it up!? Or maybe that’s just me. PS – The knot detail on the back of the bottoms is so cute!
