Solid colored bikinis are great to mix and match, but I love how a print can really transform the swimsuit into something that really speaks about your personal style. It's all in the little details. For this swimwear post, I scoured the internet for the brightest, prettiest, printed bikinis and put them together for you guys, because I know a lot of you also love fun prints and bright colors like I do (plaid and floral, anyone?).

And the best part? All of these are under $55 USD

My personal bikini crushes are the red gingham and yellow polka-dot bikinis. They're youthful, flirty, and a little retro--one of my favorite combinations. I love that the red gingham one has a skirted bottom--it's very Mary Ann from Gilligan's Island (who I liked better than Ginger anyway). The reason I like the yellow polka-dot bikini is...honestly, it reminds me of that one song, which just so happened to be a karaoke staple at our family parties from my childhood days. 

I also found colorful floral, school-girl plaid, whimsical birds, and green stripe prints, so you're bound to find a new bikini crush as well. 


Which one is your favorite?
