"Your Songs Remind Me Of Swimming"

I am so so so sorry that my posting has been so scarce this past week but I'm back now! Summer is almost here and it's inevitable that I would be doing a post on swimwear..so here it is! This season there are some key trends in swimwear...

1. RETRO

Description: Underwired, structured bikini tops with cute patterns like polka dots and high waisted bikini bottoms.

Wear With: Cat Eye sunglasses and a 50's style summery dress as a coverup.

2. CROCHET

Description: Another great way to use this seasons obsession with crochet. Looks best in white or cream but black can look good too.

Wear With: Big chunky wedges to add some edginess. Steer clear of crochet coverups, that is just taking it WAY too far.

3. 70's GLAM

Description: Another key trend this season, and not only in swimwear, is 70's. Ditch your bikini for a one piece in glamourous 70's colours. Halter straps are also very 70's style.

Wear With: A huge floppy hat or head scarf and big sunglasses.

4. CUTOFF TANKTOP

Description: I am in love with this style of bikini top right now, not really sure if it's a 'trend' but I really like it so I thought I would put it in.

Wear with: Small, tight bikini bottoms to balance the looser bikini top.
