Beachwear Classics- a guest post.

The summer is not over yet, far from it! Even though the high street retailers are in the middle of
 launching their AW13 collections and we are seeing more wool jumpers and coats arriving into our 
 favourite stores – it is still summer! While London will see temperatures above twenties throughout 
 August, Septembers forecast is not bad at all with temperatures just below the twenties. So there is  no need to pack away your swimwear quite yet! 
A classic trend that never goes out of style is the polka dot bikini as every year there are new styles and shapes. This year the high waisted briefs made an appearance in the fashion scene and it has been received with enthusiasm from fashionistas. The 50s style is here to stay, blue and white, maritime, polka dots, bandeaus, high waist and swimsuits are key words for this trend. This look will certainly be a hit next summer season.

Swimsuits should not just be kept for sunbathing and swimming. They are their own little piece of 
clothing that you can match up with other pieces to complete an outfit for that walk in the park, shopping or lunch. Match a swimsuit with some high waist vintage denim shorts or a bikini top with shorts and a casual open shirt. Complete the look with some colourful accessories such as thin  bangles, a belt or beaded sandals.

A swimsuit or a bikini top will also go well with a high waist maxi or midi skirt. Long skirts are one of this summer’s biggest trends, Monsoon have some great fitted maxis in different colours.

Finally the best tip at the moment is to look into retailer’s swimwear sale. A black or a white bikini will never go out of fashion, so getting it half price now will spare you pennies in the end.
