WITH THE WINTER clothes now safely tucked away into the deepest corner of your wardrobes, it’s time to show off that nicely bronzed skin. What better way to do that than to slip into your sexy, sizzling swimwear and make merry while the sun shines.
Celebrities abroad have often dropped their inhibitions and their clothes while taking a plunge in the deep azure of the high seas. Miranda Kerr showed off her perfect 10 figure in her printed bikini. Cara Delevingne took a break from her cheeky posing to the shutterbugs to enjoy some downtime in a monochromatic two-piece. Rock chick Rihanna took a daring plunge (literally!) in her blue one-piece with thread details on the back.
The runways for Spring Summer and Summer Resort were dotted with some of the hottest swimwear of this season. It was a riot of colours with Aqua Bandita’s bikinis complemented by billowing sheer wraps while Michael Kors showed cutesy prints on the label’s two-pieces. Nicolita had a tribal inspiration for their bandeaux top-high-waist bottom two-pieces. Paul and Joe’s halter-neck monokinis were accompanied by trench coat-styled cover-ups in lighter fabrics. Chloe borrowed nautical inspirations for the label’s line of swimwear.
The Indian ramps too saw a mix of designs meant for the tropical climes with designers like Asmita Marwa and Suman Nathwani ruling the runways with their creations. While Suman’s pieces were a loud pop of colour on the stark white runway, Asmita’s neutral shades were complemented with sheer covers in gossamer fabrics.
Wearing a swimsuit in public is no mean feat. For those who are proud owners of washboard-flat abs, slip into a sexy two-piece. If you have a slight paunch, opt for a one-piece or a tankini. Also remember to wrap your lustrous mane into a swimming cap. Now, who would want post-swim limp hair from all the chlorine in the pool? If you love to experiment with your style, go for swimsuits with surface ornamentation to see you through all your summer blues. Don’t forget to step into the sunshine armed with enough SPF coverage and go enjoy a healthy tan.
