Last year’s catwalks were showered with romantic ruffles, and this summer season they hit the beach. Flirty and romantic in dark red — frills add a feminine touch to your swimwear and will give your look something extra. Another runway favorite is the season’s big comeback kid: the tie-dye pattern. Drawing inspiration from the boho chic surfer squad of the 70s, this print is perfect for any beach day with its playful and laid-back origin. Orange has been the fashion elite’s go-to color over the last couple of seasons — and beachwear is no exception. Make a statement by going for a bright and bold hue, or keep your look pared-back, yet very modern, by opting for a rusty, burnt shade.Tired of the classic leo print? This season, It-girls choose another graphic animal for their favorite pieces: the zebra. On the beach, the black and white stripes make the perfect one-piece. And if you just can’t get enough of leo, its dots will appear in the water this summer as well, but in upgraded colors and sizes. It wouldn’t be fair to call stripes a trend — we adore them summer after summer, and swimwear in sky blue and white stripes is a safe bet for any beach day. Opt for a striped one-piece — a must-have in your summer wardrobe. Sporty, chic and easy to style with shorts or a skirt for a fashionable everyday look.If quirky and on-trend swimwear isn’t for you, the little black swimsuit will never do you wrong. Timeless from season to season, the solid two or one-piece is minimalistic and forever on-trend.
