Statement Swimwear Pieces for the New Year

How To Make A Statement With Swimwear 

2021 has finally come to a close, and we are carefully starting to dip our toes into the year 2022 (hoping it won’t be a sequel to 2020). Being cautious and not making waves seems to be the energy that most people are bringing into this New Year, which is understandable, to say the least. However, we here at Lu-May Exclusive Wear believe that your swimwear doesn’t have to adhere to this way of life. That’s right, statement pieces are making a comeback in 2022, and we are here for it!

What Makes Statement Swimwear?

Before you get ready to shop till you drop by looking through our sale section, it may be a good idea to look at what actually makes a statement piece. Not to worry though; it’s actually quite simple. A statement piece is anything that, well, makes a statement.

If it catches the eye or chooses to boldly go where other items don’t, you’re on the right track. Whether it be bright colours, vibrant patterns, or even a unique element (think ruffles), you can’t go wrong when declaring your distinctive style to the world.

Some Inspiration from Lu-May 

As we’ve mentioned, statement pieces are anything that makes a splash, quite literally in this case. This means that the sky is the limit and you can go wild with your choices. But, we all know that having too many choices can sometimes hamper our decision-making process a tad.

That’s why Lu-May has compiled a list of our favourite swimwear pieces to give you an idea of what to look for:

Florence Flare High Waist Bikini - Swimwear

  1. Stand-Out Colours: Many people tend to avoid bright or neon colours as it seems like it would be a “bit much”. But, we say the brighter, the better! For example, a colour that most people avoid seems to be yellow. However, it’s a colour that resonates with fun and happiness, so why not give it a try? Try out our Florence Flare high waist bikini or yellow scalloped one-piece and become a literal ray of walking sunshine. You could also check out our colour block bikini collection to add some brightness to this rainy year.
  2. Cut that Out: Another dramatic trend that is taking over is the cut-out swimsuit. It’s edgy, sexy, and brings enough glamour to leave you feeling fabulous throughout the year. Just have a look at our O-ring detailed monokini, and you’ll see how sometimes leaving out pieces of material can add a whole new intrigue to swimwear.
    Little Forest Ruffled - Swimwear
  3. Let’s Ruffle Some Feathers: Nothing stands out more than a ruffle detail and, in this age of Instagram-worthy fashion,
     you want something that can pop. We love a ruffle for the fun it brings to any piece of swimwear because who said swimming needed to look boring? There’s our Little Forest ruffled bikini if you like some extra patterning and the Girl Next Door ruffled high waist bikini for a more simple pop of colour.
  4. Patterns for Days: Of course, you can’t forget about the tried and true fun pattern. Nothing says vibrant and unique like a patterned swimsuit. The best part? Patterns are extremely varied, so you won’t be pushed into a corner of having to go with a style you dislike. Why, just have a look at our Kendal off-shoulder one-piece collection, which comes in animal, floral, and palm
