Summer Body For Who?
Take your body to the beach… it’s that simple!
Swimsuit shopping goes from stressful to fun once you forego the outdated idea that a swimsuit can make you look slimmer, taller or curvier. Instead, the focus should be on lazy days around the pool, the smell of suntan lotion, balmy evenings, sun on your face (which is liberally covered in sun-protection, naturally), and sand between your toes.
Swimwear Shopping Guide for Summer
Spree suggests you keep your personality and lifestyle at the forefront while swimsuit shopping. If you love hiking along the coast or playing beach games, opt for a one-piece that allows effortless movement. The classic swimsuit has been reinvented for SS16 with bold patterns, frill trims and lower backs, making it an elegant option for those who burn easily, or simply want to channel some old-world glamour.
When the first bikini made its debut in 1946, Vogue editor Diana Vreeland called it “the most important thing since the atomic bomb”. Her words gain relevance in 2016, as the latest bikinis showcase both trend and technology. From balconette shaping for larger chests, to activewear styling that allows for a full workout, and new-school fabrics that showcase the latest prints, there’s a bikini to suit every woman.
If you love being at the forefront of new, update your swimwear game with ease by opting for bohemian styling – think along the lines of a crochet bikini and printed kaftan combination – or go for mesh cover-ups and insets if you’re a city girl who channels Rihanna on a daily basis. It’s the perfect way to bring the energy of the streets to the shore.
