Although it's a little (okay, a lot) heartbreaking, the days of t-shirt weather are done. It's time to dig out the long-sleeved shirts, chunky sweaters, and heavy coats to brave the autumnal chill. If you're still dreaming of the steamy, lazy days of summer though, why not make that dream a reality? This is the perfect time to book a flight to a warm, tropical vacation destination. These new bikinis from designers Agua Bendita and Tori Praver, both available on Shop Splash, are so hot that you won't delay scheduling that flight ticket so you have an opportunity to show off.
Agua Bendita's Veracruz bikini will undoubtedly draw tons of attention as you strut your stuff on the sands of a beautiful beach or lounge poolside. The triangle bikini top is embroidered with visually stunning patterns so colorful that they instantly invoke summer no matter the season. The matching bottoms feature the same myriad of embroidered patterns and ties on both sides. The Brazilian rear coverage gives you a chance to display your toned tushie; ruching gives your butt automatic shape.
The Tasco bikini by the designer is another gorgeous rainbow of hues. The embellished triangle top has slight ruffles along the hemline for an even more interesting look that you can be sure no one else will be wearing at the beach this year. The Tasco bikini bottoms are much like the Veracruz in that they're ruched to display a bit more skin than your average bottoms. You can adjust the side ties to be a little more modest if you prefer.
Who said that one piece swimsuits need to be stuffy and conservative? Not designer Tori Praver, that's for sure. The Sayulita Snake Mist one piece in pure white has a deep scoop neckline in the front and a wide open back with ties for extra coverage. Criss-crossing fabric along both sides from the waist down add a cool, effortlessly sexy appeal to this swimsuit. You can still be a little covered up but show some skin.
While the standard bikini top and bottom will always be a classic, go against the grain a little with the Oaxaca set. The top in deep, rich ash (a dark gray hue) has a cute halter design. It provides plenty of coverage in the front and is perfect for sporty types. Smocked stripes of fabric are a unique touch. Don't fret about the ocean pulling down your bottoms again when wearing the Oxaca set. With a hipster style, these thick bottoms reveal just a hint of your butt. These are form-fitting with reliable side straps, making them perfect for playing volleyball on the beach and then splashing around in the waves.
Another interesting take on the standard bikini is Tori Praver's Kahana Shorebreak Sangria set. The bralette top in a rich, tie-dye purple is strapless (although it does include extra straps that you can tie around your neck). The straps around the back criss-cross and can be tied tighter for better support. The bottoms, available in the same color, have thicker side straps, but be aware that these bottoms are only for the bold since you'll be baring most of your butt (more like a thong).
