The Ultimate Bikini Guide

28 August 2013

With so many swimsuits to choose from, even the fashion-savvy can become a little overwhelmed! It’s important to invest in a swimsuit that shows off your assets, whilst working to hide your flaws. Here’s a list of the top trends for 2013 and also, a few tips on how to wear each and every style.

High Waisted Bikinis

Possibly one of the biggest swimsuit trends of the season, high waisted bikinis are proving extremely popular for 2013. The style and shape of such a suit is both feminine and flattering and such a deign is a welcome alternative to that of your side-tie bikini bottoms.

Opt for a style that boasts a boy cut around the legs and avoid high waist and high leg-cut-outs at all costs – this particular style can look less contemporary and more 80’s.

Team your new swimsuit with oversized sunglasses and a matching hat in order to complete the retro look. High waisted styles are extremely figure flattering, and if you’re worried about your waist, this is a great swimsuit to choose.

Sporty Pieces

Try choosing a style with accents such as zippers, contrast stitching and reinforced seams.

Retro One-Pieces

The new retro-inspired pieces boast boyish leg-holes and bustier style tops. Look for suits that boast cutesy prints in the shape of gingham styles and ditsy floral looks. Avoid the frumpy look with low cut backs and push-up bras. The one-piece can be just as alluring as he two-piece when worn in the correct manner.


Flirty ruffles are huge this season and they’re a great look to try if you wish to create the illusion of enviable curves. Try not to overdo the ruffles and invest in either ruffle bottoms or tops and not both.

White and Gold

When you have a golden glow, head-to-toe white can be extremely flattering. White with gold accents is a great style to buy into and boasts an expensive statement that will have you looking uber-savvy by the pool.


It’s important to source a swimsuit that not only looks good, yet also works when in the water. Choose covet worthy prints that accentuate your assets and hide any flaws and also a style that will stay up when it comes to riding the waves.
