What is the best swimsuit color to wear at the pool, beach, or on a boat?

Before buying your next swimsuit, take a moment to consider where you are going to spend most of your time wearing it. This purchase is building your go-to swimwear look for the summer, and we think it merits some thoughtful discussion. Most women wear their one-piece or bikini to: a patio pool, a beach, or a boat.

The stylists at SWIMSTYLE have assembled the best colors for each of these surroundings. We know certain colors will blend in to the area around you and others will stand out. When wearing red, white, blue, or black, here are the best choices based on where you will be enjoying summer 2018.

Red for the Win at a Patio Pool

Red Swimsuits Command Attention

With green grass and a patio of wood or cement behind you, red makes a stunning statement. From solid red in an array of deep ruby, to brighter corals and pinks,  is sure to satisfy your unique style, budget and silhouette preferences. For added confidence and individuality, seek a silhouette with stylistic and slimming details such as shirring or ruching, or special details like hardware or cutouts to showcase your beautiful and bold style.

Welcome Aboard, White!

It's Okay to Wear White Swimsuits Again

White looks stunning offset against sparkling blue water. As an added benefit, boating safety asks us to wear a bright color when out on the water. . For an effortless fashion statement, accessorize your white swimsuit with a brightly colored coverup in a different solid for a beautifully color blocked ensemble.

If it’s too hot for a coverup on the open water, always remember your towel or a pretty sarong on a boat. Even though the sun will do most of the work drying you off, you will want something to sit on for the care of your swimsuit. Pilling and pulling of swimsuit fabric can occur from fiberglass on boats. Putting a towel between you and this material will guarantee your swimsuit looks great for several boat rides.

What to Wear at the Beach? Blue.

Look Good in Every Photo with a Blue Swimsuit

From boardwalk to beach walk, to sandy chair or towel—blue is your go-to earth tone to stand out at the beach. Look slim and win in deep navy tones, playful and pretty in endless blue prints, and bold and beautiful in rich, jewel-toned blues. When surrounded by sandy dunes and straw beach huts, blue in any shade will help you make a memorable debut at your summer 2018 beach destination.

You Can Do No Wrong In Black

Stay Classy in a Black Swimsuit

The most versatile color a woman can wear is a black. This is especially true in the world of swimwear. Black allows women to effortlessly experiment with trending details like mesh, lace, cuts and open-back styles, without sacrificing their confidence. While most colors can provide slimming benefits, black is a failsafe from slim to style. No matter what else you pack in your beach bag or suitcase, always carry black swimsuit which can be paired with any coverup or accessory at special occasions and last-minute gatherings. Classic black is sexy yet chic and will help you look and feel your very best every day, no matter your destination!
