When bathing suit season is approaching, it's always a good idea to buy a new suit that you feel fits well and makes you feel confident in the sun.

While you're at it – go for colors and shapes that best suit your body. For a fairer skin tone, avoid any neon colors and look for any variation on peach/coral shades. These colors will brighten up paler skin tones and make you look better in the light.

For olive and darker skin tones, try brighter colors, gold accents and shades of purple.
