Style Sleuth: Swimming In Style

July 8, 2013 • Magazine, Style Sleuth

Swimwear 2013

There’s nothing worse than trying to decide on what swimsuit to buy. Next to undergarments, they are possibly the worst and most frightening of things to wear, mainly due to the fact that you will be wearing as little as possible in a public forum. But don’t worry. Besides the fact that most will be too busy worrying about themselves in a swimsuit to notice what you’re wearing, there are many different cuts for all body types.

You can always go for the classic one-piece bathing suit. Patterns offer a slimming effect. If there’s a part of the body you would like to emphasize, make sure to find a style that showcases that asset. If you adore your legs, look for something that has a high cut. Love your upper chest? Then a suit with ruffles or a deep V-neckline are perfect. Scared of showing any love handles? Then the best bet would be to buy a suit that has side ruching or gathering for a sleek effect.

Are you thinking of wearing a two-piece? It’s very ‘in style’ to mix and match competing prints. Stripes and polka dots, two types of flowered prints, (and for the brave) clashing neon colors … with this trend, the possibilities are endless! What are you waiting for? Get ready to hit the sand!
