Color blocking is here to stay, it seems, for the summer of 2013. For the very easiest way to embrace this trend, simply pick a solid color bikini top and a differently-colored plain bikini bottom. You can also buy a plain, one-color one-piece swimsuit and team it with a coverup or sarong in a single, solid, contrasting color.
Okay, so this one can be a little hard to wear. Teaming a crocheted bikini top with a pair of tiny beach shorts is a great look for those who feel comfortable with it, though, just so long as you water-test your crocheted items before jumping into the ocean with them on.
There are a hundred ways that cutouts can flatter your figure when you’re wearing a swimming costume. At the waist they can enhance hourglass curves; at the hips they can elongate your legs; on the stomach they can show off a bellybutton piercing; at the chest they can display your cleavage. Choose what you like the best, and consider a cutout that will make it look even more fabulous.
Nobody completely understands where the fringe trend came from, but it’s certainly taking the swimwear world of 2013 by storm. Choose a swimsuit which has the fringe on whichever part of your body is the narrowest so pears around the bust, hourglasses around the waist, and triangles around the hips.
There are all kinds of photo-printed one-pieces in the shops this season, and they’re focusing mostly on the power of the natural world wild cats, jungle scenes and so-called ‘tribal’ prints. They’re fun, they’re funky, and they’re incredibly ‘in’ right now.
Good news for anyone who still doesn’t feel quite right about showing their stomach on the beach high waisted bikinis are incredibly chic right now. Try pairing them with a big, floppy sunhat and a pair of huge sunglasses for a full-on retro beach look.
Last year’s Olympics took the Western world by storm, and its influence has yet to entirely wear off. Sporty, practical swimsuits with chunky zips and clean lines were all over the last batch of swimwear catwalks, and they’re well worth considering if you don ‘t enjoy many of the more decorative styles.
The fifties are here to stay, apparently. Look out for swimdresses with lovely frills, ‘boy short’ cuts on the bottom halves of bikinis, checks and gingham and polka dots, retro color schemes, nautical chic and gorgeous swimdress styles.
