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!DSC_0185Materials:
