I honestly cannot believe that it’s August. With summer still here, the dog days certainly aren’t over. Ever since coming back to Singapore, I’ve been resorting to wearing nothing but cotton-breathing bodysuits and sweat-friendly apparel. Sick and tired of having to constantly launder my items after one wear, I’ve decided to pull out the one thing that you’ll never normally wear outside the house: the swimsuit.
Thanks to the lycra fibers, it’s no secret that the swimsuit is summer’s hottest staple. Here are two ways you can try this trend:
- The Babechella
Although Coachella was four months ago, it’s always lingering in my mind like the way Lana del Rey thinks about Woodstock. As festival season is still here, you can snag your tickets for We the Fest, Neon Lights or F1, which are super rad music festivals in Jakarta and Singapore. (Thankfully, those festivals are not something to miss out while you’re planning your post-summer getaways!)
Show off that festival spirit with a whole lotta crochet, vinyl and velvet!
2. Somewhere Over the Rainbow
The late, great Judy Garland was right: never doubt the power of a rainbow. As much as I love a whole lotta color, don’t be afraid to go the extra mile by experimenting with your palette. To pull this off, use denim as your base and start from there. Try out endless combos to see what you can get!
Will you try this trend?
