According to an image consultant, these are the tips and trends to keep in mind during swimsuit season.
-Black isn't the best color for everyone, the dark color can bring out yellow undertones in the skin
-Aqua and blue/green are the best colors for most people
-Halter v-necks and draw string bottoms are the best cuts for most people
-Ruching on a "tank-ini" style is flattering on many forms
-It's best to buy "separates" to mix and match tops and bottoms, since most people are not the same size on the top and the bottom
-Swim suits, like regular clothing, have cost-benefit factors, like how often you plan to wear it
-For a set, most bathing suits will cost between $30-$50
