Summer 2017: Swimwear Finds at Nordstrom and Land's End






I have been developing a fashion strategy for the blog for a while now. I have finally come to one that works for this blog's needs. Going forward, I will only feature stores who give me access to images that I can share with you lovelies in my fashion posts. That is why this swimwear post features Nordstrom (affiliate links in post) and Land's End.

Two-Piece Swimwear That is Flirty, Sporty, and Hot


Every year during swimsuit season style writers try to come up with new ways to describe what is trendy each season. In reality, the same types of swimwear are available. So, why not skip the trend talk and just get to what looks good shall we?

At Land's End

Starting at the lower end. Land's End has a neat little feature on its site to help you match two-piece swimwear items to find the perfect pairing for you. If you want to try out the Mix and Match tool click here.

The two-piece combinations I feel that will work the best with different body types and can be sexy, flirty, or sporty depending on how you style them are the Reversible High Neck Bikini Tops, $39.00 and the Smocked High-Neck Tops, $49.00. They cover enough to be worn as an individual top and leave enough bare skin to keep the bikini vibe when wearing a bikini bottom. It works with pretty much every two-piece bottom Land's End offers. One caveat, these tops are not bra tops so there is no support and they run a bit small. Use a little reasoning if you have a C-cup or better as you may need to or the next size up.

At Nordstrom

Nordstrom offers more of better selection of two-piece options that definitively fall within the sexy, flirty, and sporty categories. Some even resemble lingerie more so than bikini tops.

Personally, I always find wrap or banded styles to be very sexy like this two-piece from L Space which runs small so order one size up, especially do so if you are busty. Chloe Wrap Bikini Top $79.00 and Estella Bikini Bottoms $70.00.

When it comes to flirty the easy option is to go with ruffled edges or a bit of fringe. The Cruz Ruffle Bikini Top from O'Neill, $48.00, is flirty and adjustable from the front, not the back. Depending on your cup size you may need to order a size up and adjust the front lacing to get the right fit. Pair with the Cruz Side Tie Bikini Bottoms for $38.00.

Sporty two-piece tend to have clean lines and is primarily in solid color, color blocking, or graphic prints. This Zella Print Tankini Top ($75.00) and Reversible Bikini Bottoms ($45.00) is a sporty combination perfect for some beach volleyball.

One-Piece Swimsuits Are Just Plain Sexy for Summer 2017

There is no need to do a huge break down for the one-piece swimsuit as they are sexier than their two-piece counterparts this year. Even the basic scoop neck one-piece seems a bit slinkier for summer 2017. Both Land's End and Nordstrom are filled with sexy one-piece options to choose from.

Summer Cover Ups Offer Style Versatility


The swimwear cover up is the bridge that can typically take you from beach into town without a complete wardrobe change. Choose a cover up that can serve as either a shirt or dress for a quick and easy transition. This will prevent you from needing to carry around a complete change in clothes. There are some cover ups that will not transition because they are too sheer or the net is too open like this set from Top Shop.
