Got a summer swimwear dilemma? Follow our style expert's guide to finding the perfect new swimsuit this season!
Most of us make an effort to update our swimwear each season, and with so many choices in the market-place these days, it can be a little overwhelming. There are a few important factors to keep into consideration including your shape, colour, fabrics; just to name a few. I hope my guide below helps a little!
One pieces made a comeback a few seasons ago and again, are a popular choice this season. Many brands have jumped on the bandwagon, each offering their own take on the traditional style so it shouldn't be too hard to find one which shows your best asset. They are also great for those who are seeking overall coverage from their swimsuit. Country Road does a great black one piece. Block colour one pieces are sexy and sophisticated. Accessorise them with a wide brimmed hat and voila. Witchery do a great wide brimmed Fedora in black.
For something a little more playful such as florals and animal prints, try Zimmerman and Tigerlily. These need minimal accessories - keep it chic by opting for a plain sarong or beach towel.
When it comes to bikinis, the trend this season is to mix up the top and the bottom. This is great if you have a pair of bikini bottoms you love and just can't seem to replace. You can freshen them up with a new top - good as new! There are a lot of designers offering their pieces as separates. Lara Bingle's range for Cotton On is a great example.
You can also opt for a neoprene bikini or one piece. This fabric holds you in and lifts you up - perfect and very on trend. Australian fashion design Nikki Lee Penny (NLP) makes some great styles as do Triangl.
