Fall may be upon those of us in the northern Hemisphere but, for the pre-planners and the sale hunters, now can be the perfect time to stock up on swimwear. Shop smart and bag a bargain as stores empty their last season racks because before you know it spring will be on the way and everything will be full price again!

Deciding on a swimsuit can be challenging, print versus block color, high-cut versus maximum coverage, bright versus muted, the options are endless, but the biggest decision is whether to opt for a bikini or a one piece. Which tribe do you belong to?

The One-Piece
Making a big come back in recent years, the one-piece is a comfort-lover’s best friend. With chic cuts, colors and prints, a one-piece can be just as sexy and comfortable as a bikini, and is easily styled with shorts, sarongs and cover ups. A one-piece allows for comfort, moveability, and modesty. Invest in a one-piece if you tend to be active, enjoy water activities, like extra support, or want to try a fashion-forward take on swimwear. If your wardrobe consists of classic basics, quality fabrics, and considered accessories, it is likely you are a one-piece woman!

The Bikini
The bikini girl rarely wanders. She will likely have dozens of triangle cuts ready to mix and match. If you like the freedom to swap, co-ordinate, and play with prints and colors, then a bikini is right for you. The two-piece offers a relaxed boho style for beach and vacation lovers, with ease and simplicity in minimal fabric and maximum attention grabbing. A bikini styles perfectly under overalls and sheer dresses, taking you from beach to bar effortlessly. If you love your denim, enjoy bohemian fashion, are full of confidence and like to fun, chances are you a bikini girl through and through!
