Experiment with your swimwear and invest in one-piece swimsuits with D-rings and laces, halter pieces and colourful bikinis, say experts.
Rosmin Kunnathottathil, co-founder of tlslingerie.com (online lingerie store) and Naaila Khan, fashion editor at Zapyle.com, have listed the latest trends:
* One-piece design: If you feel shy in exposing your whole body, the one-piece swimsuit design is the perfect solution for you. They will cover the large part of women’s body and provide a confident look.
From using D-rings and laces to connect the front and back-end, and incorporating novel wrap designs to hide the midsection, side designed one-piece are a great solution if you want to skip the bikini.
* The mini tee: In 2016, halter and sports bra-style tops were a rage. This year is all about the mini tee. Whether the sleeves are ruffled and off-the-shoulder, or full-shoulder caps, it amps the entire look.
* Bikini: There are a lot of styles when it comes to bikini wear for you to experiment with.
The halter: Instead of two flimsy strings barely holding up around your neck, you could try a top style that offers more support. The trick is to get your halter in a bold colour – a busy pattern can sometimes look too old school.
The Bandeau: For those girls more lightly endowed on the chest, the bandeau is a great on-trend style to try. However, if you pick a very juvenile design, you might end up looking like that awkward six-year old with arm floaties in the pool. The different kind of bandeaus include cover-ups and kimonos, bustiers and there are some colourful prints available too.
* One strap bras: One-piece, one strap trend is something that make great bodysuits for your after-beach dinner.
