Swim season is here and thanks to the Victoria's Secret newly released swim catalog, we're motivated to hit the gym — double time. Inside, you'll find Adriana Lima, Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge, and more of the brand's famous faces (and svelte bodies) showing off a bevy of swimwear options, ranging from colorful floral and embellished bikinis to sexier cutout one-pieces. So before you hit the beach, pool, or waterfalls, click the slideshow to see almost 50 swimwear options, which you can now purchase online from Victoria's Secret, and read our quick bikini styling tips below.
- Don't be afraid to mix and match your bikini tops and bottoms. Just make sure your color palette stays the same for a fun and flawless look. We love the idea of pairing a cute floral bottom with an embellished bohemian string bikini top for an eclectic, cool aesthetic.
- If you're looking to add extra oomph to your chest — and don't like the feel of a push-up — opt for a ruffled bikini or bandeau top. We love this frilly white rendition paired with a double-string bikini bottom.
- Accessorize your bikini look with fun jewelry. Just remember to choose effortless pieces, like these wrap bracelets and statement earrings, for a carefree look.

CelebStyle: How did you get started styling for American Idol?
Soyon An: I started back in season six as the stylist for their live tours. Then on season eight, I started styling the show and tours. I had a background as a fashion designer and had worked as a stylist as well with indie artists and bands.
CS: What is the process of styling like from start to finish?
SA: I work with each contestant to help define and craft their image as they grow and develop during the season. I work with each contestant, discuss their inspiration and vision, listen to their song choice, try on some looks from my pull, and then we shop the missing elements. Sometimes I actually customize a new look or build the outfit from scratch. Already this season, I had Colton Dixon's suit and tie studded, Erika Van Pelt's top crystalized, Joshua Ledet's blazer customized with the white and black.

Shailene Woodley has taken the red carpet by storm, and now, the 20-year-old is starring in ASOS's June magazine issue giving us fresh, fun, and youthful Summer styling inspiration. Shailene, decked out in an ASOS denim shirt, Rare lace shorts, ASOS cat-eye sunglasses, and roller skates for the cover shoot, talked about effortless style, stating, "Most of my clothes come through friends — this cardigan is two years old and these jeans are my friend's boyfriend's." We love her girl-next-door attitude, easily translated in her photo shoot showing her in limber positions and hanging from trees all while wearing a stylish array of silky pajamas, denim vests, embroidered maxi dresses, and striped tees.
