1. A floppy hat.
Paired with your itty-bitty bikini, this retro accessory does more than protect from harmful rays. It’s a surefire way to get you noticed. And remember: the bigger the brim, the better.

2. A classic swimsuit.
Detailed bathing suits are great, but sometimes it’s best to go with a timeless, simple style. Think a classic black triangle bikini. In a sea of fringe, flowers, and ruffles, you’ll be sure to stand out.

3.  Floor-length anything.
Sure, a red dress is always an attention-grabber. But a floor-length red number? With everyone else wearing miniskirts, it’s going to turn heads and drop jaws for sure.
