Picking the right swimsuit can be stressful. When you think about it, you’re actually shopping for a bra and undies that you’ll feel comfortable wearing in front of hundreds of strangers at the beach, which only adds to stress. To help you out, we’ve gathered a list of five very best swimsuits for rocking this summer. Let’s take a look!
One-piece swimsuits – because modesty is always in
Wildly flattering, one-piece swimsuits are a great choice for any body type. They provide full coverage and wrap your entire torso, which makes them the most modest option available. They are great if you are planning to go for a water aerobics class or swim laps in the pool. A one-piece swimsuit with asymmetrical design can elongate your body and create an illusion of height. It works wonders for women with short torsos, as well as pear-shaped bodies, as it shifts the attention to the upper body. An interesting detail in the form of a strap in the shoulder area makes it more appealing than having two regular straps, while still keeping it functional – without the risk of it sliding.
A splash of colors to make it fun
What better way to celebrate summer than by choosing colorful swimsuits and bikinis? When picking the color of your bikini, you need to pay attention to the color of your natural features, such as hair and eye color, as well as your skin tone. Different colors flatter different skin tones, and you need to make sure you know what looks best on you in order to rock that beachwear with confidence. You need to learn what colors work best with your skin tone and undertone in order to enhance your natural features and bring out the glow in you. Look for colourful bikinis or one-pieces online to get the one that best suits your style – that way, you will celebrate the colors that come with warm, sunny days.
50 shades of yellow
One color that managed to stand out this season on all the runways is yellow. It looks great both with and without any tan at all and works with a wide range of skin tone depending on the hue. Warmer, deeper honey yellow and muted, disaturated mustard yellow will appeal to any skin tone, although ochre and peach are great alternatives. Yellow is one of the biggest trends not just for swimsuits, but clothes in general this year. Brightly colored tops look great on pear-shaped bodies as they accentuate the bust while minimizing the legs. They also work well for long torsos as they shorten them and make the waist look smaller, too. Go with this playful color for the summer – you can’t go wrong!
Take a walk on the wild side with leopard print
What is so great about swimwear is that it comes in a variety of patterns and shapes you can use to express your style. With big names such as Tom Ford and Victoria Beckham paying visual ode to the prints that marked the 80s, the animal print trend has been translated from everyday wear to effective and bold beachwear. Leopard print is one of the most dominant ones – this eye-catching print will help you make a statement, and depending on the level of commitment, you can either choose to rock both pieces in print, or pair a leopard top with a solid piece will make you look fierce and giving you the chance to embrace your wild side.
Horizontal stripes for a nautical vibe
If you’re not into wild prints and are looking for something rather casual and subtle, swimsuits with horizontal stripes are another great print to rock this summer. Those that come in two tones are perfect for ladies who are looking to visually enhance both their tops and bottoms, as the striped pattern tricks the eye into perceiving larger bust and hips. Another body type that is sure to look great in a swimsuit with horizontal stripes is the one with a long torso. What the stripes do is they visually unite to create the illusion of a shorter torso. It’s the perfect basic print that looks polished without much effort and fuss, giving the opportunity to those looking for a more relaxed style to also look put together. To complete the look, pair it with a striped tote for an interesting twist on the nautical theme.
