Spring and Summer Swimwear

Swimwear for Spring and Summer

The August winds are blowing the warmer months straight to us. Indeed, September is nearly here and that means you can start swapping out those coats and sweaters for shorts and dresses. And, more importantly, you can start wiping the dust from the braai area and preparing for the inevitable pool parties to come. Swimwear season is here!

With festive pool parties and warm weather come stylish swimwear and summer wear. You may even decide to start planning your summer holiday and need to think about what to pack. Luckily, Lu-May Exclusive Wear has you covered.


Swimwear Trends for Summer

Since it will soon be the time of fun in the sun, many of us will need to add to our swimwear collection or replace the old with the new. But, before you do this, you will want to be sure of what is trending in fashion this season, because if you’re going to be soaking up some rays, you want to feel and look good doing it.

We share some gorgeous trends and styles that will be making a splash in the warmer months.

  1. Knits Aren’t Just for Winter. While we tend to associate ribbed fabrics with winter and jerseys, this textured look can add something extra to your summer look as well. It also gives you a break from the stereotypical shiny fabric these items tend to come in, not to mention how flattering knitted patterns can appear on practically every figure. Consider our colourful Daquiri Ribbed Mid-cut Bikini with convenient adjustable straps. Or add some texture to your look with our Kendal Knit Cream Beach Cover Up.
  2. Swimwear

    Just Cut it Out. Sometimes we want to show extra skin without having to wear a bikini. That’s where a cut-out comes in handy! It’s a flattering way to look flirty without feeling exposed, plus it always looks unique (just don’t forget to apply sunscreen to avoid awkward tan lines). For that oh-so-sexy look, we recommend our Kim Cut Out Halter Neck One Piece or, if you don’t like showing off too much, our Baylee Asymmetrical One Piece.

  3. One Piece, Bodysuit or Both? It’s been a long and busy year, so many of us seek out efficiency when it comes to our outfits. It can be annoying to spend extra time doing costume changes for every outing on your beach holiday. What if we told you that you could have your cake and eat it too? Bodysuits have become quite the trend this year and what is a one-piece if not a bodysuit you can swim in? That’s right, you can pair a beautiful one-piece with a pair of shorts, and you will look stylishly on-trend. Just take our Bahama Deep V Flutter One Piece and style it as the perfect floral blouse.
  4. Flower Power. Speaking of florals, this trend keeps coming back. Indeed, nothing says spring and summer like flower and plant motifs on swimwear. So, if you’d like to feel extra summery this holiday, try out the Bloubergstrand Floral Halter Neck Tankini or the Zanzibar Triangle Mid-cut Bikini.
