Staying fashionable throughout the year can be either particularly easy or extremely difficult, depending on what season it is. Autumn and winter are often seen as the easiest, as you can cover up more to hide any fashion faux pas, whilst summer is regularly seen as the most difficult, as you tend to wear as little clothes as possible, but try to remain as fashionable as you can.
If you are heading to the beach this year and are stuck for what women’s clothing to buy, have a look at these 4 tips to ensure you are continuing to wear the latest fashion trends all throughout the year.
1. One strap bikini. Most women would agree that the most traditional form of bikini is the one with two shoulder straps, followed closely by the halter neck variation. Whilst you can still get away with wearing this style throughout the summer, if you really want to stand out from the crowd on the beach in 2010, choose a bikini that only has a single strap.
Contrary to what you might initially think, these bikinis are just as supportive as their two strapped varieties and are widely available all throughout the high street and online. Spend a little time looking for the colour or pattern that suits you best and you’ll be well on your way to bringing a piece of the cat walk to the beach.
2. Cutaway monokini. Monokinis are usually chosen by people who feel that bikinis are just that little bit too revealing, as they help to cover up the stomach area. In 2010, however, monokinis with cutaway fronts, sides and / or backs are the way to go, but are only really suitable for those women who have a slim enough figure to get away with having parts of their body – usually the areas where extra weight accumulates most – shown off.
3. Hot pants. One of the most fashionable women’s clothing items of spring and summer 2010 is the hot pants and generally speaking, the shorter they are, the better.
Unless it’s likely that you’re going to get a lot of negative press if you don’t where exactly what’s in vogue this year, there’s no real rule on the colour or exact style for hot pants in 2010. Do what you feel works best for your outfit, whether that’s plain colours or prints, standard size or particularly short, always working to accentuate your bum and legs.
4. Loose shirts. If you’re down on the beach in your one strap bikini or cutaway monokini and are about to head to the restaurant for lunch, chances are you will need to cover up, even if it’s just a little bit. The perfect way to do this? Throw on a pair of hot pants as mentioned in point 3 and team it with a loose fitting shirt.
The boyfriend look is dominating the style trends this year and has developed from the simple boyfriend-blazer into a more overall look, with loose shirts helping work the look extremely well.
Always remember to roll the sleeves up to your elbows and don’t be afraid to go for a denim shirt, especially if your hot pants are denim, as the double denim look is particularly fashionable this season.
