Classic swimwear that never goes out of fashion

We all love summer, the heat, the outdoor barbecues, the 9pm sunsets. But one thing that’s a little trickier is trying to find the perfect swimsuit. With so many styles, cuts, colours and prices and to choose from, it can be completely overwhelming – especially if you want to be on-trend.

Luckily, there are some classic swimwear options out there that are truly timeless and will look great on all body shapes. So let’s get back to the basics and this year find ourselves a classic bathing suit that we can feel confident wearing year after year.

The one piece

Yes I said it, the one piece is in. It’s timeless and classic and is sure to look good on a variety of body shapes. If you’re worried about all those extra calories you consumed during the winter months you can rest easy, as wearing a well-made, well-fitting one piece can accentuate your curves, down-play your trouble areas and make you look fantastic. If it’s good enough for Marilyn it’s good enough for me. After all, she was the queen of the one piece suit and wore it with confidence and class.

Dark colours

We tend to think of bright and bold hues for summer, but when it comes to swimwear there is something to be said about going dark. There are some colours that are just more classic than others, while the black swimsuit is a trend that has never left us. It’s flattering and timeless and will compliment every skin tone. This black swimsuit from Tu hits all the targets, is dark in colour and even comes with a tummy controlling midsection.


High waisted bikinis

A trend that has recently come back into fashion in a big way is the high-waisted bikini. You’ll have seen numerous high fashion fliers sporting this look and it’s for a good reason, as high waisted bikinis are extremely flattering. Most women are worried about wearing a bikini because of their midsection, yet this look allows you to wear a two piece in confidence, knowing your stomach isn’t on display. It may be coming back into style now, but this type of swimwear is a very classic look going back to 1940’s.

Bold patterns

Just like the classic monochrome palette, there are some patterned bathing suits that never go out of fashion. Diagonal stripes and polka dots will always be in for instance and look great in either high waisted bikinis or on a one piece thanks to their retro vibes. Diagonal stripes and polka dots can also be very slimming, but watch out for horizontal stripes – I don’t need to remind you that those are a no-no when it comes to elongating the body.

One of the most important things to remember when looking for that perfect swimsuit is to think classic over trending. Today’s trends will be gone tomorrow, but these timeless swimsuit styles will serve you year after year.
