This month Time Out magazine asked us all about the latest top 5 swimwear trends and this is what we said...

1. One-piece swimsuits

Firstly, one-piece swimsuits will continue with their comeback glory that we saw starting last year.  2014 is seeing the swimsuit updated with mesh inserts or cut outs, ensuring that the pieces are young and fresh. These one pieces are also super versatile, and you can slip on a skirt and embellished sandals and head from beach to bar.

2. Bold Peacock Shades

Key colours to look out for are bold and vibrant peacock shades. To keep these hues summery chose playful swimwear such as the one piece Cali Dreaming Hendrix or retro inspired high cut bikinis such as the Tori Praver Toledo.

3. Bright tribal Prints

We love bright colours and prints in this part of the world, and this season’s swimwear doesn’t disappoint. Mara Hoffman has become the darling of the swimwear world for taking this trend and making unique, fun beachwear. Her kaleidoscope of colours is just the thing for perking up your beach wardrobe.

4. Fringe, fringe, fringe

It is hard to miss the dearth of fringed swimwear in the shops this summer. Whether you go for a print or block colour, fringing is all over bikinis and one pieces. This style is great for those that want to update their poolside look in an instant.

5. Crop tops and Bralets

Structured tops and crop tops are what fashionistas everywhere are wearing to the beach this summer. This style is flattering and feminine and can be worn as ballerina style tops,  structured bralets and sportier styles.

 

 

Each month we publish our Stylist Notes so that beach-goers can stay on top of the trends and ensure that their fashionista status is carried right through to the beach.
