If you’ve perused any swimsuit website this season, you’ll see that strappy neon suits are all the rage right now! We love the look of neon and black, especially for summer, so we decided to create our own version of this trending suit using a basic black bandeau and fun neon elastic. With the addition of so many straps for support, this bathing suit is perfect for the active girl on the go!Materials:
Black Bandeau Bathing Suit Top
5/8” Neon Foldover Elastic
Needle and Thread
1- Turn your bandeau over and carefully cut of the three straps or the amount of straps the bathing suits has.
2- Measure the new elastics that will replace the ones you just cut. You might need less elastic since the thickness of the new elastic is thinner. Sew in the same spot where the previous elastic was.3- Turn the bandeau over and measure the elastics for shoulder straps.
4- Take two of the colored elastics and sew from the inside of the front to the inside of the back of the bathing suit. 5- Take the last elastic and sew from the inside of the front next to the first elastic from the center. Cross the elastic for the back part and sew on the inside of the back of the suit.

And while we all love a dose of neon, there’s something refreshing about a cool neutral that look like it was taken right out of safari. We’re loving khaki for summer because of its versatility and neutrality. Plus it can make you look like you’re the most stylish glamper on the planet. So whether you’re rocking a light jacket, a pair of pants or even a dress; embrace the khaki this summer.The looks at Ralph Lauren killed it in khaki with accents of lemon yellow!

We all know about the classic LBD, the little black dress, but what about it’s fun and flirty summer-specific cousin, the little white dress. This season bloggers, bohemians and beachgoers are going crazy over the little white dress. The ideal LDW is light enough to use as cover-up on beach vacation, can be dressed up to wear to dinner out, and comfortable enough to be worn when exploring the cobble-stoned streets of any exotic city. Whether it’s slinky, lacy or flowy; there is a LWD that deserves a spot right next to the LBD.

Our outfits for summer are almost ready to go, but there’s one thing we’re still squaring away: our hairstyles.
