The weather is getting warmer here in the GCC and it’s time to hit the water. Whether you are having a lazy day by the pool or going sailing in the Gulf, stylish and well fitting swimwear will make you feel the part. Key trends that we are seeing this spring for swimwear include:

Soft Hues: Pretty pastel colours and soft shades are flattering and allow for the transition from spring to summer. Choose a dusty rose Cali Dreaming bikini or pastel pink Tori Praver to work this beach look, which also has elements from the garment wear trend.

Embroidery Detail: Bring out your inner boho beach babe with hand made details this season. From delicate crochet to colourful embroidery, let some subtle detailing speak for itself (see L*Space).

Aqua shades: There were so many shades of blue on the swimwear catwalks this season. From baby blues to deep rich colours, find the shade that works for you and pair it with a matching kaftan. We love Saha Swimwear’s two pieces and Caffe Swimwear’s elegant cover-ups.

Tropical Prints: Brighten up your poolside look with some tropical prints. No one does this look better than cult American label Mara Hoffman with her wonderful exotic parrot prints this season.

Structure: One pieces with corsetry and tie backs are popular this Spring. Whether tying at the back in a bow or bikinis that tie around the waist, these styles are versatile for most body shapes.
