Each swim season has its own unique color palette and patterns. It’s what makes each year’s offerings unique. 2013 is characterized by five trends: floral and tropical patterns, geometric designs, paisleys, bold neons and the resurgence of black and white. To help you sort through all of the choices, Big Girls Bras has created a chart of some of our favorites from each category.
A major style trend in 2013 swimwear is mixing colors, patterns, even pieces from different brands. The only limitation is your imagination.
Here are a few of our favorite mixes to spark your creativity.
Start with a bright neon bikini top in a retro design like the Tara Grinna Twist Bandeau Bikini Top 136 in President Snow (bright neon pink). Here are three bikini bottoms to pair with it for fresh new looks. The B.Swim Volley Swimsuit Bottom L26 in Party Parrot is a geometric print in neon bright colors. Sunsets Tie Side Swimsuit Bottom 10B in Heaven is a saucy style in vivid turquoise. Or try the Swim Systems Shirred Banded Swimwear Bottom F214 in Virtue which sports a neon paisley.
Perhaps you’d like to combine black and white with a geometric print for the top like the Tara Grinna Underwire Swim Bra 104 in Edyta. What would you pair with this top for a WOW combination? Any solid color bottom would look great, but here are some combinations you might not have considered. The B.Swim Cheeky Cupcake Bottom L47 in Skycastle mirrors the black and white in a portion of its neon bright geometric design. The Aerin Rose Shirred Ruffle Swim Skirt 500 would work in either Niwa, a black and white floral and geometric design, or Tangiers, black background with a vivid paisley design.
Which tops would you pair with these bottoms for a one-of-a-kind look that would make you the star of your pool or beach: Swim Systems Mini Swimwear Bottom F288 in Maraca, the B.Swim PuckerUp Bottom L53 in Vogue or the Sunsets Side Shirred Bottom 20B in Day Break?
