The Nico Bikini Top is an absolute essential. While a classic triangle bikini top never fails to do the trick, sometimes you want to spice up your beach day with a new look. Thanks to the Nico Top’s adjustable neck and side ties, you can wear it several different ways to make it your own. Here are 5 of our favorite styles you can create with the Nico Bikini Top.
1. Simple Bandeau Tie
The simple bandeau tie is the perfect way to show off your unique style while minimizing tan lines. To style your Nico Top this way, first lay the bikini top down flat on a table or bed. Next, slide the triangles close together, leaving a 2-3 finger gap between them. Tie the neck straps around and behind your back. Finally, tie the under-bust strap into a bow in the center of your chest and adjust to fit.
2. Cross-Back Bandeau Tie
For a slightly more complex look with some funkier tan lines, try the cross-back bandeau tie. To style your top this way, follow the steps for the simple bandeau tie. Instead of tying the under-bust strap in a bow in the front, tie a single knot in the center of your chest and cross the straps in an X-shape around your sides towards your back. To finish the look off, tie a bow in the back.
3. Scoop-Neck Tie
The scoop-neck tie is a great style to opt for if you’re looking to keep the coverage of the basic triangle top while still changing up the status quo. To try this style, lay the top flat on a table or bed with the neck ties farthest away from your body. Slide the triangles close together, leaving a 2-3 finger gap between them. Tie the under-bust straps around your neck so that the neck ties are hanging downward. Finally, tie the neck ties around your back into a bow.
4. Scoop-Neck Cross Tie
This style elevates the scoop-neck into an even more intricate look. To achieve it, follow the steps for the scoop-neck tie. Instead of tying the under-bust straps around your neck the way you would a regular triangle bikini top, cross them over each other in an X-shape and then adjust them to fit.
5. Triangle Top Cross Tie
The triangle top cross tie style gives the standard triangle top one of the simplest yet most elegant upgrades. Thanks to the Nico Top’s long ties, you can fashion this bikini into a wrap-around style. To get this look, tie your bikini tops neck straps around your neck as you would do normally. Wrap your under-bust straps around your back and bring them to the front, tying them in a bow under the triangles.
