The dos and don'ts of swimsuit trends for 2013

14 August 2013

Prior to taking the plunge and buying into a brand new swimsuit, there are a few important considerations to come to terms with. With so many trends on the market today, it can sometimes be tricky to know which styles, colours and designs to invest in. Read on to learn all there is to know about this season’s hottest trends and how to wear them with pride!

Swimsuit Trend – Colour Blocking

For the past few seasons, colour blocking has had a huge impact on various runway style, it comes as no surprise then that this particular trend has worked its way into swimwear.

Do embrace structure when it comes to wearing colour-blocked suits. Opt for a style that offers a little more support than your average triangle bikini, especially if you have a larger bust. Steer clear of pale hues and choose darker bands of colour for a slimming effect.

Don’t be afraid to mix prints, although colour blocking is majorly about solid blocks of colour, an element of print can be just as chic.

Swimsuit Trend – Crochet accents

Adding a boho vibe to your beach look is easy when you have a range of crochet bikinis to work with.

Don’t hit the beach without trying your new swimsuit out for style. Certain crochet styles tend to become a little too revealing when worn in the water.

Swimsuit Trend – Cutouts

The cut-out is a swimsuit trend not to be overlooked this season, boasting a style that is both sexy and edgy. It’s also the perfect look for those not quite ready to bare all.

Don’t solely stick to solid black and embrace bold patterns and hot hues instead.

Do wear your new cut out style with flat sandals, anything too high and you’ll look slightly out of place on the beach. When wearing this style, it’s wise to lather on the sunscreen, if not, you’ll end up with a few whacky tan lines!

Swimsuit Trend – Fringe

Aside from suede jackets and western style boots, fringe is now adorning a number of cutesy bikinis.

Do use fringe to create the illusion of curves and if you possess a slim, boyish figure, opt for a suit that boasts fringe around the bust or hipline.

Don’t wear fringe around the areas you wish to hide, this embellishment will only emphasise problem areas further.

Swimsuit Trends – Graphic One-Pieces

Photo prints adorning one-piece swimsuits are proving to be a popular look for 2013.

Do choose a swimsuit with a bold, photo-real print. The likes of outer space options and animal landscapes are all popular prints for this season.

Don’t worry about looking extremely fashion-savvy. This is a swimsuit that must be worn with confidence.
