Swimwear SS13 Trends and Google+ Hangout with stylist Helen Boyle

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure to attend a Google+ hangout with Swimwear’s stylist Helen Boyle and a few other bloggers. During the hangout, we learned more about the Spring Summer 2013 trends and we also had the chance to ask questions about which type of swimwear would suit our body shape and style.

The hangout was full of trends and holiday tips and very useful, you can watch it here:

After the hangout, I was offered my favourite bikini from Swimwear365 and I picked the gorgeous Marie Claire Red Gel Push-Up Bikini which has a modern dot and dash design. I really like how the red background contrasts with the funky white dots.

Unfortunately I don’t have a big chest, so the gel-filled cups are perfect to boost my cleavage and the adjustable straps ensure that it fits everyone.

Spring Summer 2013 Trends feature bright, pastels, tropical and neon. My favourite has to be the Tropical range since it reminds me of sunny Brazil.

I absolutely love the tropical inspired prints and gorgeous colours found in the bikinis at Swimwear 365 Tropical Collection .

My favourite bikini from the Tropical range is the s.Oliver Turquoise Push-up Bikini Top with matching Hip-Tie Bikini Briefs, there is a cute bow in the bikini and I love the colourful and funky print. The padded cups are great for those with small chest like myself.

The bikini would be complimented by lovely links necklace which is handmade with wooden beads, adding a lovely touch to the swimwear.

Since it is a tropical themed swimwear, I would need a pair of oversized sunglasses in turquoise to protect my eyes from UV rays while reading my favourite book by the beach.

I don’t mind the sunshine on my body, but I need to keep my head cool (and protect my hair) with a sweet corsage hat. Let’s not forget a handy bag to keep all my beach essentials – the navy spot on bag will keep my book and sun lotion safe. It’s ideal for the beach, but also perfect for cocktails in the evening.

The whole tropical theme would be complete with the wonderful wraparound tunic and coral wedges. They are versatile and will take me from day to the evening, so I will be ready for a fun-filled tropical themed holiday!

Now that I have my perfect Swimwear SS13 outfit sorted, I just need to book a holiday!
