When spring hits, the majority of women start thinking about summer holiday plans and what swimsuits they are going to wear on the beach or to relax in next to the pool. The good news for women is that there are many beautiful and varied trends for 2013 available. So much so we are confident everyone will be able to find something suitable and on trend.
1. Retro style
One of the biggest swimsuit trends of 2013 is going to involve retro styling. Not only are these designs extremely funky but they are also very flattering on the figure. Keep an eye out for the halter necked and high-waisted designs that hark back to the 50s, alongside floral and spotty patterns. Oversized stripe patterns are also on trend and help to bring back memories of old and help you feel glamorous.
Not only are monokinis extremely fashionable, they also help to hide areas of the body, such as the stomach, that a lot of women are more conscious of. The monokini manages to tie in the sexiness of a bikini, alongside the flattering cut of a one-piece. You should always be able to find a number of monokini designs that suit your requirements, whether you desire dramatic flair, playfulness or subtlety.
3. Go boho
Boho is a style growing ever more popular amidst the fashion world and this year, in particular amongst swimwear. As well as being the cutest swimming costume design for the beach or the pool, boho tops are the ideal addition to a festival outfit and look perfect with flowery skirts or jeans. Keep an eye out for the crochet trim designs, as these look fab no matter the time of the season, whether you have a tan or have yet to lie out in the sun. Boho designed costumes are also the perfect costume type to accessorise, whether with a floppy hat or jewellery.
4. Go tribal
Bold patterns are very much a trend of 2013 and you will no doubt see tribal patterns everywhere. These swimwear prints can vary greatly, from boisterous, brightly coloured striped and zigzag patterns right through to earthier, understated designs. It’s a good idea to mix it up a bit as far as tribal patterns are concerned, so make sure you not only explore your adventurous side and purchase exciting neon tribal wear, as well as the calmer pastel styles.
5. We live in a digital world
One of the biggest surprises to swimwear trends of 2013 is the number of designs that have integrates pictures into the costume designs. Digital prints are, without a doubt, a style that is only set to grow even more popular as 2013 progresses. Prints vary greatly, from classic black and white photo reproductions, vintage art prints, neon sunsets and animals to famous landmarks.
The choices are endless with these popular 2013 trends, so you should make sure you enjoy the many different style and design options you have available to you. No matter which trend you decide to go with, or even if you choose a costume from each trend, you will be sure to stand out, so make sure you enjoy it and take some photos for your memories.
