Everyone has their favourite swimwear style – be it a bandeau bikini, a tankini, one piece, itsy bitsty teenie weenie polka dot bikini or padded swimwear... but the question today is not one of form – today we’re talking the hottest colours and prints for swimwear in 2013...
It was a big trend last summer and it looks as though animal prints are here to stay, which is nothing but a good thing. Popular options for this look include exotic animal prints such as zebra, tiger and others – expect traditional animal print shades as standard and keep your eye out for metallic shades too, tiger prints look so hot in gold and black. It’s not just about the daring, exotic animal prints this season either. Look out for delicate animal patterns like butterfly and birds too for a flirty, feminine feel.
Gorgeously geometric styles promise to be a huge hit this season – they’re smart, sophisticated plus there’s more choice of prints than you can shake a stick at. Think square colour block and complex symmetrical shapes. As well as perfectly balanced prints you can expect to see lots of neon-inspired palm-tree and sunset scenes forming part of this shapely trend.
As well as the prints being bold this season, you can expect the colours to be just as eye-catching. Exotic, neon brights are totally in. Fresh, tropical shades like cobalt blue, fiery fuchsias and zesty lemons will make a huge appearance on swimwear – these colours look fantastic with a tan so will be popular towards the tail end of the season when you’ve been a little sun-kissed.
What trend will you be donning this season?
