How to Choose the Perfect Tankini?

Now that you know how amazing tankinis are, you’re probably excited to start shopping for the latest styles! Since the selection of tankini swimwear is vast, follow these steps to help find the perfect one for you!

 

  • Choose a Color

You might as well start off with the color to narrow down your selection. Plus, the color is the first thing you’ll see and that will also captivate your fashionably senses. The best fashion tips always pertain to finding the perfect tones that accentuate your best features. So, always choose one that looks stunning with your skin tone and eye color.

 

There are two ways you can figure out what tones are your best. For starters, you can take a look at your wardrobe and see if there’s one color that you wear more of. If so, it may be your best look and the perfect option to kick off your Tankini shopping expedition.

 

You can also determine which colors play off your natural (and beautiful) strengths by figuring out whether your have a cool or warm skin tone. Take a look at the veins on your wrist. If they’re more blue-like, then you have cool undertones. If your veins are more green-like, you have warm undertones. Here’s a quick guide to find the best colors based on your undertone:

 

Cool Undertones: Blues, greens, purples and turqoises.

Warm Undertones: Reds pinks, oranges, maroons and golds.

 

  • Pick a Pattern

The next step is to pick the pattern (or lack of) you want. You may want to indulge in the season’s latest fashion trends or find something a little more timeless, like a solid tone. Just remember, the right pattern can accentuate all the curves you want, while hiding all the ones you don’t, whereas solids can blend in your all your shapes and curves into a flawless one. So take a look in the mirror and find what you absolutely love about yourself. If you have a stunning set of legs, opt for a pattern that is closer to the bottom to draw the attention there. If you have awesome arms, bring attention to them while also drawing attention away from other areas with a pattern on the top and a solid tone for your bottoms.

 

  • Find the Perfect Fit

Oh, swimsuit fit – it’s one of the most important things anyone could ever consider. The fit has the way to truly showcase your best attributes. Once you have determined what areas of your body you’d wish to accentuate (and hide), you can find the perfect tankini style that will give you all the confidence in the world. Here are some guidelines to follow:

 

Halters accentuate your bust

Bandeaus provide lots of coverage and no tan lines

Tanks enhance your arm muscles and elongate your upper area
