Bikini Day is the anniversary of the invention of the bikini in 1946 by a Parisian fashion designer, Louis Reard. The goal of this holiday is to get to the closest beach, or find some cheap travel deals to the Philippines, Bali, Hawaii, or anywhere with lots of beach, and spend the day in your bikini!

WHY WE LOVE NATIONAL BIKINI DAY
You can show off your fashion sense
Fashion is a great way to express ourselves—the bikini is just another outlet. They come in all different colors, shades, and styles. You can go nineties with a halter bikini, rock a tankini, or even try on a skirtkini. You can mix and match bottoms and tops, stripes, and colors. So what’s your bikini style?
It gives you a reason to head to the beach
No one ever needs a reason to escape to the beach, but it’s always nice to have an excuse. If anyone asks you why you’re not at work, it’s because today is National Bikini Day!
They go with the coolest accessories
Accessories can make or break a look. With the right amount of bling, the perfect coverup, and some stylish shades, you can turn your bikini into a bona-fide summer look! Is that a celebrity, or is it just you rocking the beach?
