If you absolutely, totally, must expose yourself on the beach this summer, you might as well earn all those stares you’ll be getting!
And what better way than by wearing a statement swimsuit from a designer swimwear label that will leave your girlfriends wondering who’s the new sugar daddy in your life?
Courtesy of our friends at Flare magazine, here are a few options for making a splash with minimal cash.
Model Nika Lauraitis was shot by Max Abadian for Flare’s June edition, profiling some attention-grabbing swimsuits that are surprisingly affordable. All of the pieces here are available for under $200.
And what do you get for that price? How about 2010 swimwear designs from such much-coveted labels as Melissa Odabash, Lenny, or Cali Dreaming? What’s not to like?
ps. The dazzling bikini above is by Tibi, available at Holt Renfrew. But we cheated a bit: It’s $130 for each piece, though who’s to say you need both?
