Sexy Wraps Over Swimwear
Bright, Bold Colour
Bright and Geometric Prints
Swimwear was bright and busy during key periods of the 1980s, with fashionable femmes and gents embracing swimwear graced with bold patterns and geometric shapes in a blend of bright hues, including orange, yellow, green, blue and fuchsia. These suits bore cut-out, sometimes incomplete shapes such as circles, triangles, squares and rectangles, joined together by dotted patterns or loud base colours like fluorescent yellow. Equally popular were polka dotted, Argyle-print, and black-and-white chequered swimsuits, the latter being particularly symbolic of the new wave of music that played loudly at every teen pool party.
If you are getting tired of the cold, start planning for better, warmer days. Show your love for the 1980s by buying a few pieces in bright, geometric material. To take it down a notch, cover your suit in a gorgeous wrap dress or skirt, which can be dressed up or down depending on how you style your outfit.
