Get yourself beach ready with these bather selections that are hot in store and on the shore – from the classic triangle two-piece, to the ultra-modern tankini. PENNY LANE reports.
Xanadu The Label Eighty Mile Beach Bikini
Knitting’s cool, younger sister is making a comeback on the beaches of Australia. The white crochet bikini is the perfect seaside staple, and with most of them handmade, you know you’re wearing a one-of-a-kind. Opt for the authentic, rather than the fake lyrca-style.
Topanga Tie Dye Bikini Top and Bottom
Quicksilver’s Platypus Amphibian shorts
For the guy who loves the water just as much as the bar, these boardies double as some nice casual shorts, dry superfast, and are ridiculously comfy. Wear them wet or dry.
Tigerlily La Casita Apron
Get a taste of Turkey with this Tigerlily two piece. The exotic number oozes Mediterranean vibes – its Spanish and Turkish-inspired tile print will have you wishing that you were partying on an island in Greece, but will do just as well poolside, right at home.
Amore & Sorvete Easy Lover
Strap up with a high-waisted bottom that’ll have your bum looking divine. We love the criss-cross detail on the sides of these Easy Lover bikini bottoms. Wear if you’re feeling a little devilish, have a flat stomach, and want to create some endless curves.
Lululemon El Current Short II
Do you like to sweat? Nuh, didn’t think so. But unless you’re some weird non-sweating human being, the salty speckles of liquid that ooze from your skin when you work out are inevitable. However, Lululemon’s new El Current Shorts will have you sweat-ready. Lightweight, four-way stretch fabric dries quickly and holds its shape, and bonded seams help to keep nasty chafing at bay.
All About Eve Neo Geo Crop Rashie
The rashie has been given one hell of a makeover this year, so expect to see new forms, new patterns and sexy new styles to hit our shores. All About Eve’s super cool long-sleeved rashie comes in a fun multi-coloured geometric print that’ll dazzle even the brightest of fishes.
Seafolly Block Party Sleeveless Rash Vest
Talking about rashies, we couldn’t go passed Seafolly’s Charlie’s Angels-meets-scuba queen sleeveless rash vest. Its thick black zip, racer back and cropping at the waist makes it one hell-of-a-sexy-scuba vest. We’re impressed… and well… a little turned on.
Feeling a little nostalgia for VCRs and block colour screens? So are we. Let us reminisce with the Bandwave tank and hipster pant, a kaleidoscope of ’80s memory.
