Swimsuits are usually worn in sets. We have a matching top and a matching bottom. It works. It’s tried and true. It can be boring. A great way to mix up your swim style and explore is to mix prints on your swimsuit. It’s a trend we saw in fashion and I love that it made it’s way into swimwear. If you’re hesitant to do this trend in your street wear, please oh please try it in swimwear. It can be edgy cute, daring and most of all fun. After all, it’s swim wear! If you’re not going to have fun with fashion here, were will you?
But before you head out looking crazy, let’s consider a few tips to keep in mind:
Print size: The size of each of the prints should be complimentary, it can be very difficult when mixing a very large print and a very small print. Don’t get me wrong, it can be done, but this is for the more experienced fashion ladies.
Color: you can take the easy route and do the same print top and bottom, but have the background of the print be a different color. It’s a great way to introduce your self to this trend.
Style: Keep the style of the suit on the same page, since you;re juxtaposing the prints and possibly the color. If you’re going to wear a retro top, pair it with a retro bottom.
Take a hint: Look at how some of your favorite fashionistas’s have done this trend or what’s happening in style magazines.
