Seafolly Portofino BikiniBright colors and an eye-popping cut help this Portofino bikini from Seafolly stand out from the pack.

I was instantly struck by the combination of pink, purple, and black stripes. The hot pink hue is bold, especially as it's placed beside strong black. However the muted purple shade tempers both stripes somewhat, ensuring the Portofino is head-turning without seeming overdone. The saturated hues may still be too much for androgynous sun lovers, but I love their retro flair. The rectangular metal buckle at the bust gives the bandeau an extra luxurious finish.

I also love the look of the halter, which comes from the center rather than the sides. The unusual configuration is quite sexy, although I'm not sure how it'll fare in strong ocean waves. It won't have the security of the traditional design, so it may not suit water babies. The clasp at the back will be safer than a regular tie, but that'll be cold comfort if the halter comes loose!

If looks matter most though, the Portofino represents excellent value. At $82 it's hardly small change, but it's very reasonable for a bikini top of this quality and designer pedigree. Just remember the sunscreen. With so much skin exposed there's plenty to burn!
