The Met Gala: also a terrific night for timepieces!Read more
At any one time, there are over 80,000 products available to buy on ASOS. However, there are always a handful of pieces that rise above the rest and cause even seasoned editors to say, “Wait—that’s from ASOS?!” This week, our team spotted several of those It pieces, so I had to order them into the office to see how they measure up in real life.
There are three items in particular that we were impressed by: a puff-sleeved, square-neck top that is already proving popular with Who What Wear’s followers, a neon floral-print maxi that’s on my wish list (it looks just as good as it does in the pictures) and the sandals we can’t believe aren’t sold out yet. Keep scrolling to see how the trending top, sandals and dress look in real life.
Bikini shopping is, let’s just say it, not that fun. It is incredibly rewarding to find a suit you love that makes you feel confident and invincible, but getting there is no easy feat. I’ve personally never had an easy time shopping for swimsuits, but as someone who grew up by the beach, I’ve had to amass a collection out of necessity. When I was a teenager, I went into our local swim shop and found the suit of my dreams, the ViX Bia Bikini Top ($98) and Bottoms ($98).
Living by the beach means that I’ve tried on a lot of bikinis, and I know what I’m looking for. I want to be able to buy different-size tops and bottoms. The bottoms, most importantly, can’t dig into my sides, because that’s not flattering on me. The top needs to be supportive; flimsy straps won’t cut it. I don’t think that’s too much to ask for, but you’d be surprised. So when I found this suit, it was like a saving grace. Plus, I saw both Halle Berry and Kim Kardashian wearing this style, so I figured it would look awesome on women with curves.
This bikini is about as classic as it gets, which is why I love it so much. Trends may come and go, but this swimsuit lasts forever, like a great white t-shirt or a timeless pair of jeans. I love it because I feel like it’s always flattering. No matter how I’m feeling about myself, I know that I can throw this on and feel more confident at the beach. If you’re looking for a new bikini this Summer, this is the one to invest in.
