According to color psychologist Kendra Cherry, orange evokes feelings of happiness and ENERGY. Like it's sexy cousin red, orange garners attention, but in a more light-hearted way. An orange bikini or swimming suit, as opposed to a whole outfit, is like an office CRUSH rather than full blown love affair. All the fun with a hint of danger, but less commitment and SO very perfect for SUMMER'S good times. From tangerine to copper, turn those heads and seize the moment in a variety of shades that flatter any skin tone.
Here are our favorite looks from Zuzu Swim.
A warm and toasty copper orange to flatter any skin tone, this lovely swimming suit comes constructed AND lined in luxurious Rosset Lycra with a subtle metallic sheen. This gorgeous bikini from La Sirene comes with triangle or bandeau top and features braided ties and a cheeky ruched bottom to flatter your bum by the shore or poolside.
For those of you who want a brighter burst of color, we love this playful bikini from Cia.Maritima. Featuring a ruched bottom, removable soft cups, and beaded detail, this bathing suit's palm and bamboo print is sure to transport you AND your onlookers to paradise immediately.
Subtler and romantic types may opt for this dreamy off the shoulder number from La Sirene. This peachy, salmon shade of orange complements any skin tone and comes as both a one and two piece swimsuit.
For the flower child in you, we recommend this orange blossom special from Cia.Maritima. The bead detail on this universally flattering Brazilian bikini silhouette adds a element of boho chic.
If a full on orange suit is too much of a commitment, opting for this tribal inspired piece from Brigitte is the perfect option. Pops of orange from the trim and tassels complement the vibrancy of this print.
