Stripes are a must in your one piece collection because it’s true what they say about horizontal lines.

10. Knot Cut Out Bikini
Mustard yellow has seen a lot of attention in the past few months for it’s 70/80’s retro appeal and its use as a toned down pop of color. We will totally be seeing a lot of this color in warmer months, just as much as we saw it during the fall. Will you be rocking this color too?
