Hello SOTGC community,
Although it may not seem like it to those of you on the East Coast, summer is right around the corner! And for those who are already lucky enough to be enjoying beautiful sunny weather, it’ll only get hotter! Warm weather means sunshine, sand, and waves. Swimwear is always incredibly difficult to shop for, but it’s even more difficult to keep up with all of the various trends. This summer season is all about unconventional retro suits, coupled with cut outs, mesh, neoprene, crochet, etc.
The suits this season are not for the faint of heart. Check out these suits that I scouted from Nasty Gal that are right on trend!
High Waist: My personal favorite. This style is great for those who want to add a little more definition to their waistline, and it also adds a fun flirty touch without being too revealing. ALSO, the best part about it is that you don’t need to fret if you don’t have a rock hard six-pack! A high waist is slimming and can easily give you an hourglass shape.
Mesh: Peek-a-boo. Mesh is a huge hit this season. It’s being incorporated into one pieces, monokinis, and bikinis. Prints are being printed on mesh for added effect along with just solid colors, adding sexy touches to your suits.
One Pieces: It’s not what you’re thinking. No frumpy suits with bows and little duckies like you wore when you were a small girl. These one pieces are OUT OF THIS WORLD. The designs are more outrageous and scandalous than you could imagine. One pieces are no longer for moms, they’re for everyone, even the most daring!
Neoprene: Sporty looks are in! Not every bikini has to be oozing with femininity or sex appeal. You can be comfortable and fit in this season’s neoprene bikinis. Most of these bikinis come in great neon colors also!
Crochet: knits aren’t only valuable for your grandma’s hobby or hippies. Crochet and macramé are making a come back in different twists and turns. The natural spaces that come from the stitching add hints of skin that are sure to turn some heads.
Racer Top: Hinting back to the sporty neoprene look come the racer front tops. The geometric shape highlights the shoulders and the neckline. The shape of the top also adds a more comfortable bikini top. No more worries about knots and loose ties.
I hope everyone is as excited for the warm weather as I am! Plan ahead and snag yourself one of these bikinis before everyone else does!
