Prints to adopt this summer

For prints, we see a lot of animal print tankini (zebra or leopard), but you have to be able to accept it. If you are looking for something a little softer, we recommend white polka dots, a safe bet, gingham which is adorable, fine stripes why not, or even floral patterns. On the latter, you will have the choice between the tropical atmosphere type palm trees or more traditional with roses or small flowers, both are trendy.

Choose the patterns and colors of a tankini according to its morphology

The colors and patterns of the tankini are to be chosen according to your morphology. That is to say, if you want to erase your hips, avoid choosing a leopard tankini bottom and favor black.

Basically, we put pattern and/or color on the parts we want to highlight, and plain and dark on the others.

If you want to draw the eye to your chest but hide your belly, opt for a flared colorblock tankini for example.

Mismatching your tankini: the good idea for summer

Good news, you don’t have to wear the tankini as a set, far from it. The trend is moreover more towards mix&match, which wants to combine two prints or two colors that are not, a priori, made to be together.

If you choose to mismatch the patterns, you still have to be a little careful. Rule not to do anything with his tankini, is to choose a top and bottom that are certainly mismatched, but which remain “in the same style”. For example, you can combine wide stripes and narrow stripes, but not checks and whales. Another tip for doing well by mismatching your tankini, try to respect the following formula: either patterns of the same kind (stripes with stripes it’s yes), or patterns that have a common color (white stripes and white polka dots it’s ok). We therefore avoid, for example, green squares with purple polka dots. If you’re not sure, opt for a patterned top and a plain bottom, or vice versa.

The other advantage of wearing her mismatched tankiniis that you can associate the pieces according to your morphology. For example: you fall for a floral flared tankini top perfect for hiding a small belly, but the panties that go with it are low waisted and you would prefer to avoid them. No problem, just wear any swimsuit bottom you like, as long as it goes with the top.
