Swimwear prints go totally tropical in 2011
It's all set to be a totally tropical summer, as jungle fever sweeps the most fashion-forward swimwear brands. Tropical prints are really big news this summer; bikinis and one pieces are bold, bright and beautiful with scene-stealing tropical flower and leaf prints being seen right across the board. One of Simply Beach's favourite brands, Gottex, have come up with the ultimate tropical print swimwear range, with the Gottex Jungle Fever collection of bikinis and swimsuits featuring a large, bold tropical flower and leaf print in reds and greens on a blue background. Look out for the matching, semi-sheer silk pareo with bold red trim; this versatile piece is both glamorous and practical and it manages to compliment the swimwear underneath it without overpowering it. Gottex swimwear is always striking and this year they've really surpassed themselves. Just looking at this exquisite range has you dreaming of exotic far flung holidays. The cuts of the swimsuits and bikinis are inspired too, their daring shapes suit the bold prints brilliantly and these combinations make for some very special swimwear indeed. The head-turning Jets Swimwear range is truly stunning this season, with tropical prints being a prominent feature. There's something for everyone amongst these tropical lovelies, from bold and bright to soft and subtle, so if you want to go for something tropical but in more muted shades, then the Jets Under the Sun range is perfect; really flattering too. On the other end of the tropical scale is the super-summery burst of colour that is the Jets Vista bikini with it's pretty floral print and zesty orange straps. If cute and ruffly is more your thing, then Ginja, the Australian swimwear brand have come up with a whimsical take on the tropical theme, with pretty floral prints with cute ruffles and contrasting trims. Last but by no means least is Aguaclara swimwear. If you're looking for a bold, exotic, Amazonian statement piece, this is definitely the brand for you. The only issue is deciding which extraordinary print to go for. Animal prints, peacock feather prints and jungle fever features in abundance and this swimwear is finished with extra special trims.
