Bikini season is rapidly approaching, and although I have no idea where the summer will take me, I'm dreaming of spur-of-the-moment weekend getaways, and perhaps a longer, more exotic excursion later in the season as a bittersweet sendoff kiss to summer. I can't help but notice that bandeau tops are everywhere, and I've got my eye on a few options to take with me on my as-yet-unplanned travels. Here are three styles to covet, at price points to suit every budget.
Lisa Marie Fernandez Natalie bandeau bikini, $300 @ Net-a-Porter. I love the streamlined shape, and the gorgeous color would suit the palest to darkest of complexions.
For an adorably retro look, try Seafolly's Viva Separates Mini Tube Bandeau, $71. Bottoms sold separately for $58-$63, but I'd recommend the plain side tie style (shown) over the ruffled one, which is just a tad over the top.
If you dare to go white, Mossimo's Black Label Interlocking Bandeau looks a lot more expensive than it is. It also comes with a detachable halter strap. $17.99 @ Target.
