Expert insights The latest fashions have trickled from the catwalks and into our local boutiques so Fifi Faiz Fakhroo and Leila Siassi Faiz, co-founders of contemporary beachwear e-boutique Maison du Maillot, give us some advice on how to keep you stylish sun goddesses on-trend.
One-piece swimsuits Firstly, one-piece swimsuits will continue with their comeback glory that we saw starting in 2013. This year is seeing the swimsuit updated with mesh inserts or cut outs, ensuring that the pieces are young and fresh.
Bold peacock shades Key colours to look out for are bold and vibrant peacock shades. To keep these hues summery choose playful swimwear such as the one-piece Cali Dreaming Hendrix or retro inspired high cut bikinis like the Tori Praver Toledo.
Bright tribal prints We love bright colours and prints in this part of the world and this season’s swimwear doesn’t disappoint. Mara Hoffman takes this trend and making unique, fun beachwear. Her kaleidoscope of colours is just the thing for perking up your beach wardrobe.
Fringe, fringe, fringe There’s certainly no dearth of fringed swimwear in the shops this summer. Whether you go for a print or block colour, fringing is all over bikinis and one-pieces.
Crop tops and bralettes Structured tops and crop tops are what fashionistas everywhere are wearing. The style is flattering and feminine and can be worn as ballerina style tops, structured bralettes and even sportier styles. Maison du Maillot offers free delivery. Visit www.maisonmaillot.com.
