Are you getting your wardrobe together ready for a trip away to the sun? If so, then make sure you’re up on the latest beachwear trends in order to ensure you’re looking hot when you step out onto the sand. Here are some tips about what’ll get you noticed whether you’re planning a trip catch some waves at Bells Beach in the state of Victoria, Australia, or are perhaps simply looking to stretch out in the sun in Portofino, Italy.
The one-piece is in
When it comes to swimwear, nothing is hotter this season than the one piece costume. Covering up in style is far from boring and if you’re seen in a one-piece bathing suit this year then you can relax in the knowledge that you’re right on trend. Look cool in the hot sun with the help of a colourful halterneck design from Missoni, or maybe opt for one of Roksanda Ilincic’s striking designs.
Not had time to shift those obstinate pounds?
Don’t panic if you’ve not spent as much time down the gym as you had planned to before your summer holiday – you still have options. Shapewear swimwear is all the rage, helping you to look fabulous on the beach without having to worry about any unwanted bulges. Who wants to spend all day on the beach holding their tummy in?! You could perhaps opt for a sizzling all-black one-piece from Heidi Klein with a concealed tummy control panel which will give you the great silhouette that you’ve always dreamed of.
But don’t discount the two-piece!
Just because the one-piece swimsuit is in vogue this year doesn’t mean you should rush to discount the amazing range of bikini options out there. Beautiful two-piece sets are available from the likes of Lisa Marie Fernandez, Mara Hoffman and Vix. And there are plenty of styles to choose from too. Perhaps go for a triangle bikini top with full bottoms – it’s a style that has changed little over the years and will suit a huge variety of body shapes, from small to full busts. Of course, a bandeau-style bikini is always a great look to go for on the beach, as is the classic halterneck look. If you want to make sure that you definitely won’t get any unwanted tan lines then perhaps a strapless bikini is the way forward as you can be sure of going back home with beautifully bronzed shoulders to show off!
Don’t forget your beachwear essentials
Getting your clothes in order for a day at the beach isn’t all about swimwear, you also need to consider what you’re going to wear when it’s time for some brunch, or perhaps you want to cover up and protect your skin from the sun. The good news is that there are plenty of stylish options out there. Consider investing in a beautiful flame-pattern kaftan, or maybe a simple embroidered white kaftan teamed with some wide leg pants and a pair of wedge heels. You’ll truly be spoilt for choice when you check out the range available.
