Surrounded by sun soaked sands and crystal clear waters, the truth is, these are the only outfits you need for that dream holiday abroad. But with so much choice, it's difficult to know what to take.
From bandeau bikinis to tankini swimwear, the choice is endless! That's why we're here to lend a helping hand. Keeping you up-to-date with all the must-haves in this season's swimwear, here are the top trends for 2013.
A guaranteed head turner for this year's beaches, are all things vintage. Loved for the 1950s feminine feel, retro swimwear is ideal for ladies looking for a classic, effortless style. Available in a whole host of different cuts and prints, you're never limited with this design. From high waisted nautical numbers to pretty polka-dot pieces, there's something for everyone.
However, don't forget to accessorise with this look! The beauty of going vintage is the simple adornments that really bring your swimwear to life. Be it a pretty pink hair bow or patterned wedges, this trend screams summer beauty.
If you're looking for something a little less understated, then animal print is one to pack in 2013. A fiery burst of glamour, animal print is a great means of adding personality to your summer wardrobe. But which print to choose? Zebra print is a sleek and sexy pattern that complements darker skin tones perfectly. However, conversely, if you're of a paler complexion then something such as giraffe print would be a better choice.
Whilst animal print is bang on trend, at the same time, don't neglect other bold, beautiful prints on the high street. If you really want to create a statement, then geometric or Aztec designs are ones to watch out for!
For those ladies who love to look gorgeously girly, there are plenty of options for you! An obvious choice that never fails to impress is florals. Whether it's ditsy pastel prints or bold and brighter flower designs, florals definitely show that summer has arrived.
What's more, it's a great trend to mix and match with other looks. For instance, florals work hand in hand with vintage combos. From coupling a dainty daisy top with high waisted shorts, to sporting pretty floral bottoms with a plain coloured top, there are plenty of ways to personalise your summer style for 2013.
