As summer rolls around and the weather grows hot and humid, the only thing that can beat the heat is a cool dip while donning a swimsuit. So, whether you’re headed for Caribbean Bay or Busan, SEOUL Magazine has got you covered on the hottest suits of the season.
Add personality to your swimwear by considering different textures. Show off your bohemian side with a crochet three-piece bikini from Wonderplace or add some romance by incorporating subtle lace.
Reflect your vacation state of mind with an exotic tropical print. As opposed to traditional floral patterns, tropical prints channel a more mature and dramatic flair. We especially like these bright tropical prints from ELLE.
The great thing about ruffles is that they are always on double-duty. A swimsuit with ruffle details can add a girly softness and hide the areas you didn’t have time to work out. This
festive two-piece from 8seconds is especially successful at accomplishing both.
