Temperatures here in the Northeast are supposed to climb into the high 90s today, so why not talk about a sizzling swimwear trend? Mismatched bikinis are all over the place - this isn't new but it's heating up in new ways, with luxe swimwear lines like Giejo (top left) designing mixed-print bikinis that are meant to clash in the best way possible. I think the trend is fun and (wait for it) budget-friendly to boot! After all, you can mix and match bikinis you already own to create new combinations season after season. You can also just pick up a new top or new bottom rather than investing in a whole new suit to inject some fresh sun-and-surf style into your swimwear routine.
