Memorial Day Weekend is right around the corner, and with BBQs and beach days to plan for, a patriotic swimsuit is a must for the celebration. Take a look at the options below, and remember to pack plenty of SPF!

Bargain Buy
You shouldn't shell out for a bikini that will only be worn a couple weekends a year, so this Old Navy option is perfect for stashing in your bottom drawer the rest of the year.

Festive With an Edge
If you aren't into the run-of-the-mill stars and stripes look, check out this color-block bikini from Lisa Marie Fernandez. Available in both white/navy and white/red, you can still pay subtle homage to the flag without wearing it.
