How sexy is this drapey off-the-shoulder moment? Rewind back to that 80’s cut-off T-shirt you perfected back in the day and you can achieve the same look! Grab a white tee, widen the neck opening with a scissor and cut away for a crop. Pair with a white bikini  –– et viola!

Not sure, if it’s the animal print or sexy side boob that has me going wild, yet the look is so simple to recreate. A couple of yards of fabric folded in half with a circular opening at the top for your head plus a belt will achieve this runway-ready look. Love!

Remember that colorful sarong you bought on vacation years ago? Dust that beauty off, wrap, twist and tie around your neck and you’ll transform your local beach look into one fit for an exotic locale.

Yes, fringe does come with benefits! It makes everything that much more fabulous. Create your own tassels by sewing bundles of colorful cotton yarns along the bottom your bandeau for a awesome festive feel.

This beaded shoulder dress is beyond beautiful, who would ever want to get that wet? Achieve the same look by simply cropping a tee and slicing horizontally to create the shredded effect –– only more beach friendly.

We're kind of strung out on this sexy style and how the simple placement of center straps –– which you can easily accomplish by tying matching strings or fabric to the center ––transform this basic bikini into a hot style.
