Summer Swimsuit Guide 2013 | Fashion

I was reading the June issue of InStyle Magazine a bit earlier this month and I loved the piece they did on Swimwear trends for 2013. This inspired to do a swimwear guide of my own.

Floral prints never seem to go out of style for swimwear, and this year's no exception. Besides your typical granny florals (small floral prints), larger flowers and even leaves are making a splash this year! I am loving the one-piece swimsuit on the left corner which sports a bright leafy print.

Cut-outs are also making a statement this year with whole pieces and even bikini bottoms are showcasing risqué slits. Something about cut-outs feels more bold and sexier than just a bikini.  I am not so daring when it comes to baring so much skin, so the black high waisted cut-out bottom in the top right would suit me fine.


Another trend I've been noticing was the bold prints and colours. This multicoloured print monokini in the center is just so fun. It has a bit of a retro feel too it too, and that deep V-neck is just so daring! Besides bright colours, pastels are also still floating around from Spring and I must say I'm still in love with pastel coloured swimwear. Sadly, I couldn't find a picture of one that I loved.

Finally, mixed and matched prints and colours, once something frowned upon is looking more and more tempting to try. Of course, you have to be able to mix the right prints or colours, that could be pretty daunting. For me, I think the turquoise fringe bandeau is nicely paired with the black and white Aztec print bottom. It's a easy mixed and matched combo. You could be more daring and try mixing polka dots with stripes or florals with other things. I've heard the key in that is keeping one colour the same in each print.

What do you think of the swimsuit trends for this summer? Not as many retro-styled bikinis as last year, but bits and pieces of the retro fun. My top favourite trends are the bold colours, pastels and cut-outs.  What are yours?
