As invitations to summer soirees begin to arrive, Dallas girls will soon be faced with a daunting annual wardrobe dilemma: The Pool Party. Choosing a look that’s both stylish and swim-ready can be a challenge, to say the least.
As always, however, we’re here to help. In this week’s Stealing It, we present six polished, poolside pieces for under $100 a pop.
For the Vintage Vixen: Pin-up perfect, this polka dot bikini from Zara would pair well with cat eye shades and a bright red lip.
Pricetag: $19.90 (each piece), Zara
For the Daring Darling: We love this fashion-forward, day-glo monokini, and even better, dipping your toe in this trend will cost you next to nothing. Rock it with a stack of wide bangles or shoulder-grazing earrings for maximum effect.
Pricetag: $22.80, Forever 21
For the Boho Babe: Make + Model’s fringe-trimmed cover-up is the ideal combination of sexy and sweet. Add a fedora and artisan-inspired wedges to maintain the bohemian vibe.
Pricetag: $58, Nordstrom
For the Sporty Sweetheart: Looking for function in addition to fun? A versatile tankini by Cole of California is ideal for those who plan on doing more swimming than lounging.
Pricetag: $38 (each piece), Macy’s
For the Bombshell: The classic white bikini is always in style, and we appreciate the asset-boosting power of this two-piece by Victoria’s Secret. What’s more, dozens of options await, if you prefer a pop of color or a print.
Pricetag: Starting at $28 (each piece), Victoria’s Secret
For the Tropical Traveler: Finally, if an island destination is in your near future, there’s nothing more versatile than a stunning sarong by Roberta Roller Rabbit. Go from the beach to cocktail hour by slipping into your stilettos.
Pricetag: $55, Piperlime
