Yes ladies, the bittersweet reality of swimwear season is upon us!
With hot weather and outdoor lifestyles around the corner after a long winter of hibernating, it can be a shock getting used to the idea of “exposing all” in a few short weeks.
With autumn’s chill settling in, it’s hard to ignore what’s ahead. Shan knows how you feel. For 25 years, the Laval, Que.-based company (which counts Céline Dion, Katy Perry and the newly married Kate Moss as fans) has been helping to outfit pasty-but-stylish northerners for that essential rite-of-winter: the frantic migration to warmer climates.
With the prevalence of just about anything boho and 70s lately, it’s no surprise that the caftan is the beach cover-up of the moment. And while the caftans of 2011 come in a variety of different colors, patterns and lengths, what they all have in common is being easy to wear and breezily cool.
Is there anything more classic than a polka-dot bikini? Or how about an old-fashioned nautical stripe?
These two enduring looks are still going strong, more than half a century after the venerable two-piece made its debut.
One of the biggest swimwear trends for Summer 2011 — and in the fashion world in general — is color blocking. Whether you’re more of a monochromatic fashionista or a lover of bright and clashing hues, there’s a swimsuit out there to help you embrace this happy trend.
