Yep it’s that time of year again. Somehow summer just creeps up on me and I have mixed feelings about the whole situation. Sun, surf, sand, gelatos, fresh juice and jandals are undoubtedly the best parts of summer. The part I’m unsure about is spending 50% of my time 90% naked. Although at least we can spend our pretty-much-naked time in some awesome bikinis! (There are so many on my wish list this year, is it ok to have 5?).
Whatever your style this summer, one of these trends are sure to tickle your fancy.
Graphic print swimsuits
These are at the top of my summer wish list! Super fun and super wearable for the beach – just chuck a pair of shorts over the top and you have yourself a leotard for post-beach activities.

Cut out one-piece’s
Regular one-piece’s too covered up for your liking? A cut out is a great solution! Just make sure you use sunblock or you’ll end up with some interesting tan lines…

This is a great trend if you’re planning to go festival hopping this summer! Chuck a loose white dress over the top and you’re good to go!

Feel a little vintage by rocking a high waist bikini bottom – this is also great if you’ve eaten too much over Christmas!!

Print on print
Feeling bold? Create a new swimsuit look by mixing together two print bikinis. This trend works great for those of us who are a different size on top and bottom.
The festive season calls for celebration! Liven up floral prints with frills and bows.
