Fashion / SUMMER DIY: THE NEW FRINGE BIKINI

Our girl Erica from FASHIONLUSH got some fashion advice to make us standout for this swimsuit season! Peep below to see how you can turn your favorite bathing suit to a closet staple. Now, we’re just itching for a dream vacation!

 

 

GUEST POST:

Bathing suits are no longer designed just for swimming. These days, they are just a much a fashion statement as your favorite pair of shredded denim shorts/ leopard booties/ or floral frock.

 

Each year they get more & more exuberant with various embellishments, cutouts, patterns, etc.

 

For me, I love my suits to be bold colors, great cuts, & an added bit of flair. Which is why I am digging this new boho take on the fringe bikini.

 

The best part about this little summer fashion project- if you can sew, you can do it. If you can’t sew, I am sure your mom could help you out if you ask nicely. Plus, it looks great under a cover-up w/ just a bit of fringe peeking out.
