It’s not itsy-bitsy, it’s not yellow and it’s not a true bikini, but we still think spotted two-piece is worth singing about. She makes the flirty pattern feel sexy and sophisticated with the navy shade and hot sweetheart-style top.

We already know that street style is spot-on. Turns out, her sand style is too. Case in point: This bikini made up of a purple Milk the Goat bandeau and zig-zag bottoms. We plan to replicate the look by combining tops and bottoms from different sets we already own.

It’s no wonder Nina Dobrev and Julianne Hough both wore this Maya Swimwear two-piece on vacation. The bold floral print is so pretty and the ruffled hem on the bottoms makes the bikini even flirtier.

Ahoy, ! The star, in a Mikoh Swimwear bikini, goes for a classic print but shakes things up by picking a bandeau top with a U-shaped wire at the center, which gives the illusion of a plunging neckline.

If you’re invited to a coed pool party, forgo this throwback high-waist style (unless you want to hear the phrase “granny panties” all afternoon), but if you’re going on a girls-only beach trip, by all means slip into the Prism bikini boldly wore in nude.
