Do you know what will make you smile more when you’ll think back to the sweet summer vacation? Soft sandy beaches, turquoise blue waters, endless hours of day-till-night fun will pale in comparison with you looking best in a new swim suit. I mean, can you envision your summer holiday without a trip to the sunny beach to flaunt your freshly worked out/dieted/yoga sculpted body in a gorgeous new bikini?
The offer is overwhelming this season; there is something neat for every kind of girl on holiday: tiny string triangle and strapless bandeau bikinis for getting perfect tanning, alluring cut-out one pieces for pool divas, sporty tops and shorts for beach athletes and rash guard shirts and swim trunks for surfer chicks. Thank heavens there are even hipster shorts and underwire tops for this here not-so-fit writer who just wants to lounge on the beach for hours on end.
A favorite swimwear trend this season is the vintage glamour look: balconette bra bikinis, long-line corset tops, high-rise waist or skirted bottoms bring back 1950s elegance to modern day beach retreats. Gingham and seersucker patterns along with polka dots or other cute retro graphics keep a chic retro vibe that requires a wide-brim sun hat, round shades and high wedge sandals for a complete look.
Sporty swimwear trends include racer back bikini tops, rash-guard tankinis, swim suits with mesh inserts, neoprene one-piece suits, and swim styles with color-block, number print, contrasting stripes and zipper details. These are aimed at girls looking effortlessly chic while wearing cap hats and sneaker shoes.
Floral prints are a classical choice for a flirty, feminine look but this summer you can choose from a myriad of eye-catching alternatives from tropical lush imagery, geo motifs to ethnic prints and abstract graphics. Bohemian tassels, crochet lace and string details or fringe-adorned necklines are among the hottest embellishment trends for swimwear. Front-ties, fabric twists, pleats and ruffles add delightful texture to classic styles. Minimalist unicolor bathing suits are everything but plain with surprising cut-outs or one-shoulder designs. Obviously, a new swimsuit requires a new cover-up: embroidered tunics and printed caftans, mini crochet dresses and flirty playsuits are the latest styles around.
