Bikini blowout: Get swimsuit styling tips plus WIN a bikini prize pack from MiX Bikini!

Swimsuit season is almost here and we couldn't be more excited to rock a cute suit. The ultimate way to find a totally flattering bikini that's perf for swim and sand? Custom design it yourself. GL has teamed up with MiX Bikini to share the secrets to picking the perfect suit, plus we’re giving away a $75 gift card for your dream bikini and accessories every day until May 31, 2012.

So what’s MiX Bikini?
MiX Bikini is a line of totally customizable swimsuits. You get to pick everything from the cut and color to the types of strings and ties. And since they’re totally interchangeable, you can mix and match all your MiX Bikini pieces together to create tons of adorable options to, ahem, suit your every mood.

Swimsuit Styling Tips
This summer, we're going completely custom—mixing and matching cute tops and adorable bottoms to get a totally perfect fit. Why settle for anything less? Here's everything you need to know to get your hottest beach look…
  • DO be bold. Playful prints and bright plaids add insta-curves.      
  • DO go girly. Florals or darling dots play up a femme figure.
  • DO get decked. Blingy embellishments command attention and play up cute curves.
  • DO rock hot jewels and accessories with your bikini.
  • DO look to celebs for swimsuit inspiration—just pick someone who has a similar body type as you.
  • DO grab a crazy cool cover-up like a psychedelic print tunic, gorge kimono or high-waisted shorts.
  • DO tote a chic summer beach bag. Luxe leather, rad raffia, eye-catching ikat and bold neons are all perf picks.
