With half of 2020 gone and no hopes for the other half, I've already moved on to 2021 in my head. Taking advantage of the abundance of time that I'm probably (and hopefully) never going to get again, I'm using these days to plan the *best* vacation of my life yet. It'll include the tropics, tan lines, beach hair, cute vacay outfits, and good times. I mean, why sweat over a wasted summer when you can chill planning your next one! Using savings from 2020 on a kickass vacay in 2021 is the best way to honour both the summers, IMO. And that's where you are headed, too, with this article.
Today, on the occasion of Bikini Day, the 74th birth anniversary of the sexy two-piece, we are starting our travel itinerary for 2021 with the perfect swimsuit. Read on!
When it comes to bikinis, we like to preach "size does not matter" and so should you. But if you feel self-conscious about the swimwear style, here's a quick lesson on how to get that beach body:
You don’t have to be a certain size or look a certain way. Every body is a bikini body. But before you dive in, give these Bollywood-approved bikinis a glance for your next vacay, won't you? We know we love them! So, get your sunnies on, play Havana on loud, and sunscreen your way into a celeb-like vacay.
Leave it up to Miss Patani to raise the temperature wherever she goes. With a triangle bikini bottom and strapless underwired top, Disha has well established that the bikini trend is here to stay. If not in 2020, we can definitely expect to see the style roaming the beaches in 2021.
Vaani Kapoor took us on all kinds of trips in Ghunghroo with her outfits but this coral bikini left a lasting impression. With broad elasticated details and a subtle metallic threadwork done on it, this bikini is sure to shine in the bright sunlight. Oh, we're counting on it for them sun-kissed selfies!
Sarong wraps came back to life with Kareena's comeback courtesy Veere Di Wedding and, I must say, it was a pleasant surprise. Whether it was because of this sexy muted-gold/borderline nude coloured bikini or simply the fact that Bebo wore it, sarongs are seriously underrated beachwear. No more, I say. And so does KKK!
From the courtroom in Pink straight to the beaches of Mauritius in Judwaa 2, Taapsee's bitchin’ bikini proved that the actress can stun in every role. This floral printed bikini set is a happy reminder that things will get better soon because, well, they gotta! The full-coverage bikini top with bow-detailed bottoms will be totally worth the wait!
The caged bikini trend went so viral when Baaghi came out four years ago that it got translated to pretty much every top style, from T-shirts to bralettes to tank tops. A perfect find for bikini beginners, this Shraddha-approved number will provide you with ample support from the front and the back, while looking hot AF! Now that's a win-win.
Alia Bhatt's pink bikini sequence in Shaandaar is one we'll never forget for how casual and effortless it was. Slipping out of denim dungarees straight into a bandeau and briefs was hot, not just for Shahid in the film but for us too. A great choice for those who wish to take it up a notch and show summer what's what in style.
DP sunbathing in this orange bikini after that badass dive (remember?) and subsequent swim to the shore is when I first fell in love with a bikini. The crushed texture of this set is perfect if you like solid bikinis without any print or pattern.
Blue may have failed at the Box Office but Lara Dutta's bikini stint in the film sure didn't. I still remember her dive into the ocean wearing a sequinned gold bikini, ah, she looked like a real-life mermaid. If that's what you wanna go for on your next vacay, add some glam to your bikini with sequins, glitter, metallic inserts, etc.
If you’re at the beach and the song Chhaliya does not play in your head, are you even at the beach? Parrot green is an odd choice of colour I'd say, but with the halter neck tie-up and thin blue border, it only adds to the statement-making appeal of it. Think of it as Bebo's guide to making heads turn. Go big, go backless!
Do you love LBDs? Great! Then you'll love an LBB too? Or so we hope! Life is too short to wear a boring bikini and Anushka’s fancy-nancy black one is the perfect example of it. With metal details around the G-string and bikini straps, that's one sexy bikini, I tell you. If you're a bikini beginning, I'm almost certain you're considering a black one to do the debut.
Happy Bikini Day, ladies! Go, get 'em!
