This has been referenced in a few of the previous entries, but bears repeating. The best way to up your beach game and maximize wear when it comes to suits, is to mix and match pieces. How? Get a bright, crazy bikini top--suits from the 80's and 90's are the best. Head to American Apparel (or any brand that sells bathing suit tops and bottoms as separates), and buy a few bottoms that match. Don't be afraid to mix prints, perhaps even mixing a neon floral like this one, with print in complementary stripes.
