The holiday hustle and bustle is now a memory. It’s a brand new year and, hopefully, you’ve got a nice mid-winter trip to a warm locale planned some time soon. Whether it’s a quiet getaway for yourself, a romantic rendezvous for two or a fun-filled family vacation, you may want to get some new swimwear for days spent on the beach or by the pool side. Here is a quick glimpse at what’s making waves this season.
When it comes to men’s swimwear, go with something that strikes a balance of substance and style. Plaids are popular this season, but there are also a lot of great solids and fun prints to choose from as well. Many are crafted in a laidback board shorts style. Choose one with a good elastic waist and a strong drawstring closure for a relaxed adjustable fit.
Many styles are also made of quick-drying fabric that makes lying out on the beach after a nice swim even more enjoyable. A lot of styles even offer extra protection from UV rays as well. Oh and yeah, make sure you get a pair with at least one good secure pocket to keep your hotel room key safe at all times.
For the women, the options appear to be virtually limitless. Are you a one-piece girl or all about the bikinis? Regardless of your preference, there’s a veritable of ocean of vivid prints and bold solids to choose from.
Aside from that, you can mix and match swim separates for custom looks. From fun girl-centric board shorts and swim skirts to exotic bandeau tops and classic halter bra styles, you’ll never run out of ideas. Top it off with a chic cover-up and you’re ready to make a splash.
As always, when it comes to the kids, it’s all about the fun. Bright colors and stripes are all the rage for this season. Lively screen prints in vivid hues brighten up swim trunks for the boys and adorable 1-piece and 2-piece styles for the girls.
That should get your trip off to a good start. Don’t forget to put on plenty of sunscreen, take plenty of pictures and have fun!
