Since posting about What to Wear on a Cruise, I have been asked about swimsuits, and I always recommend you bring at least two. One for excursions: swimming, snorkeling and frolicking with dolphins (LOL), and one just to just lay around and look fabulous in!
Now, let’s be honest ladies, who really spends a lot of time in the ship’s pool when they’re on a cruise? Sure you might dip in and out, but most gals spend more time lounging around the pool than actually swimming in it. Since on cruise you’re practically living in your swimsuit, why not go all out and create a stylish poolside persona? Here are 3 unique cruise swimwear outfits to look chic and confident.
If you’re a fashionista who likes to glam it up, then a leopard print swimsuit is for you. Animal prints are pure Hollywood, and adding them in a swimsuit-size dose is a perfect way inject a little celebrity into your trip.
Remember, you’re looking to create a stylish theme here so keep the glam vibe going you’ll need a few other elements for this glam style recipe.
Go with a sheer coverup ( the boudoir feel is sexy) , strappy-yet-practical sandals, a chic straw hat, floppy hat and oversized movie-star like sunglasses. This sexy ensemble will keep everyone guessing who the glam mystery woman on board is. Meow!
When at sea, why not look the part with this cute, nautical stripe tankini? Tankinis are super comfy and ideal when your top half is a different size than your bottom half. Not to mention they make bathroom breaks so simple!
I always say that a great way to dress after 40 is to take a classic look and give it a modern twist. A seaworthy tankini ( similar top here, bottom here) does just that mixing classic sailor stripes with coral stitched piping. White drawstring beach pants complement the nautical theme and take you from the pool to the spa, to the buffet and back again without feeling too exposed. Ship Ahoy, this one is a winner!
Hot, tropical destinations and exotic floral prints go hand in hand, so if you’re going on a cruise, particularly to Mexico, the Caribbean or Hawaii, a tropical-print swimsuit is an excellent choice. If you want to look slim in your swimsuit, this gorgeous one-piece does a great job to help you emphasize your waist or even fake one.
The subtle ruching on this tropical floral swimsuit draws the eye inward thinning your midlife tummy. The deep V-neckline elongates your figure and helps create a stunning hourglass shape. To complete the outfit, add a lacy white cover-up like this that won’t compete with the bold punch of tropical color. Ahola!
