We don’t know for sure if it’s summer or the wrath of global warming that makes everything melt, but one thing is certain: it’s getting really hot. When it’s hot, we instantly think about beaches, tanning, and bikinis. Although France has different ways of enjoying summer, like exploring the famous Avenue Champs Elysee, the Parisians also do take great care in how they look during summer, especially when donning a bikini.

Creative Mixing-n-Matching of Swimsuits
Honestly, there are no rules when it comes to creatively mixing and matching your swimsuits. All you need to do is unleash your creativity without forgetting these simple guidelines, if you are to don a two-piece.
1. If you have solid colored swimsuits, make sure you’re going to mix them in different colors, for it not to look like it’s an accident, but rather intentional. Also, avoid color combinations like red and magenta, or purple and blue.
2. Aside from solids, try mixing up busy patterns. These go better than two very different prints.
3. Try to balance all the tops you are wishing to pair up with the bottoms. If you’re donning a slightly skimpier top, try not to pair it up with a string bikini for the bottom.
4. Swim suits from popular clothing brands like Victoria’s Secret and H&M has different cuts, patterns, and styles that you can mix and match.
5. Know your body type. This will help you to determine which style would complement your body. You should know your frame type (inverted triangle, triangle, rectangle, or hourglass). If your bust and hips have the same measurement, and your waist measurement is somewhat smaller than the two, you’re an hourglass. If all these three share the same measurement, then you’re a rectangle. If your hip measurement is a few inches larger than your bust, you’re a triangle. Lastly, if your bust measurement is larger than your hips, you’re an inverted triangle.
6. Avoid buying bottoms that are too small and will make you look chubby. Bottoms that are too large would make you look like you’re wearing a diaper especially when they get wet.
