City Pulse

By Willette Francis

You’ve undergone the necessary summer rituals (or tortures for some) of waxing, polishing and tanning. Now it’s time to show off your beautiful body wearing the right swimsuit. You’re saying, “How do I choose? Color? Style? Designer?” The answer is “Do it by personality.”

The ‘Model-esque Diva’

Diva attitude, check. Ego the size of New York, check. A body that can rival any Supermodel, check. If all of the above is true, walk the sandy beach runways in this hot number.

Gottex makes this animal print deep plunge one-piece for $178.00, available on pilarsbeachwear.com.

The ‘Trendista’

You uttered “I’m so hot” before the celebrity heiress made the phrase famous. Every fashion magazine and new designer is filed in your mental rolodex. Set the next trend in an amazing two -piece.

Red bandeau top and low rise bottom for $66.00 each, both are embellished with wood detail by Anika Brazil, available on instyleswimwear.com.

The ‘Bootylicious Beauty’

“Bootylicious” by Destiny’s Child is still your favorite song, even though the R&B trio has called it quits. You often thank your mother for hooking up with your father and passing on the genes for a voluptuous body. Show whatcha momma gave ya in this curve accentuating swimsuit.

Then it’s safe to say you’re a ‘rock star chick.’ This black bikini with metallic accents will have you partying like a rock star until the end of summer.
