Swimsuits are looking better than ever this 2016, with a whole gamut of options available, from minimalist one-piece styles to edgy two-piece combos—and needless to say, whether you're packing for a trip to the cottage, the beach or the city's hottest pool bar, you're going to have to bring it on in the swimwear department.
But while a lot of unusual styles are popping up everywhere, the classics will always bring on the woah factor. Case in point: Jessy Mendiola sizzlin' in a red bikini during her Boracay getaway with her Banana Sundae family.
If you're looking for an extra boost of confidence at the beach, a red bikini is your best bet: It says femme fatale, go-getter, and unafraid to have fun—and who can resist that? Channel Jessy and ooze hotness on your next summer getaway with our tips on how to make the most out of this power piece:
Get it in a slinky style. You want to stand out, and it's the beach anyway, so go all out, and get those iconic pin-up bikini styles, or a bandeau version. In solid red, please! Embellishments will just cheapen the look.
Wear your hair in vavavoom waves. Who says you have to look sloppy at the beach, beauty-wise? Pair your red bikini with big, sexy waves like Jessy did, to amp up the hotness factor.
Make sure your cover up makes a statement, too. A floral print cover up like Jessy's adds a dash of sweetness, which makes you look even more desirable, yet not intimidating.
