Hot picks from MOA® Trend Specialist Sara Rogers
I hope your beach bod is in top shape because it’s finally time for some fun in the sun! From sassy stripes to painter’s palates, patterns are THE ‘it’ trend for swimwear this season, so don’t get spotted in the sand wearing your boring ol’ basics. No worries for those of you who are allergic to brights – pattern style works well with neutral colors also this season.
Oakley / Level 1, North (N107)
You definitely won’t have to worry about getting noticed in this pair of ‘80s-inspired neon board shorts from Oakley. Coloring everything from swim to denim this season, neon looks have been getting ‘glowing’ reviews.
Metropark / Level 1, North (N108)
Even if you prefer rockin’ to Metallica over bopping to the Beach Boys, there’s no need to change your head banger attitude just to catch a few rays. Swim is ready to rock this summer with dark prints, tattoo-inspired details and graphic elements like rosaries and chains.
Burberry / Level 1, South (S178)
Some days at the beach are for blending in – especially if you haven’t had time to hit the gym as much as you had hoped! Barely-there neutral patterns, like this toned-down Burberry plaid, are a great choice for summer wallflowers.
If Picasso were a beach bum, this is what he’d be lounging in on the sandy beaches of Barcelona. Art is having a fashion renaissance this season as abstract prints and imaginative patterns take center stage.
Shades of Blue
Martin + Osa / Level 2, South (S214)
It will be easier than ever to go with the flow in this summer’s calming blue hues. Once only associated with bouncing baby boys, blue is back with a stylish vengeance in a multitude of watery hues like aqua and cerulean.
