The Key Is Versatility
A key trend at this year’s Miami Swim Week was versatility. A simple bikini or a maillot is no longer enough for us ladies; what we want is a full outfit that will take us straight from the beach to our next destination in style. Try mixing up a bikini with a kaftan or wearing a bodysuit as a swimsuit and matching it with a long flowing maxi skirt.
Get Ahead Of The Trend
OK, so the new styles seen won’t be available to buy until 2018 but you can get ahead of the transitional beachwear trend here with us at UK Swimwear.
The Oroblu Lapislazzuli Multiway Skirt is the ultimate in versatility and can be worn in a multitude of ways; a maxi skirt, a mini dress or a sleeveless bandeau dress. This can be teamed with the Oroblu Lapislazzuli Multiway Poncho for a lovely layered look. The Oroblu Lapislazzuli Reversible Swimsuit will give this look endless possibilities. Or if you are a little more daring go for the Gottex Profile Tutti Frutti Bandeau Bikini to contour and control your curves. Perfect for a scorching midday lunch date.
Gold was hot on the Miami Swim Week catwalks this year. Team the Watercult Scubanauts Zip Bikini with the Pierre Mantoux Couture Kruger Sun Dress to transform yourself from beach babe into a super hot bronzed goddess!
