Nautica - Swim Fun

Friday, July 05, 2013 Sophie Magdalena

It's that time of year again!  Summer is finally here.  It's hot outside, the sun is shining.. All you can think about is how you'd rather be at North Avenue Beach than working your day job!  The question is, do you have the latest swimwear?  What's in style?  This Summer in swim, it's all about graphic design and print mixing, with bold neon colors stepping into the forefront for both men and women.  New textures and shapes are also paving their way into women's lines, experimenting with new materials and extending from the traditional triangle bikini top. 

At Nautica, their Open Seas Swimwear Collection not only takes you to the beach, but on vacation to paradise.  Influenced by the Greek Isles, vibrant pastels are amidst indigo blues, various whites, and sharkskin greys.  

Of course, it wouldn't be a Nautica piece without the brand's DNA - nautical stripes, color blocking and sporty designs - which compose both the women's and men's swimwear collections. 

The women's line of bikinis, tankinis, bandeaus, and one-piece swimsuits feature a variety of thin and wide colorful, horizontal stripes, as well as some bold color blocking.  


Don't forget your cover-up!  Solid-colored mesh is in this season, including the line's bright neon yellow hoodie.  

The men's collection of swim shorts feature resort chic light plaids, bright stripes, and geometrical patterns. 

What's your swimwear style?  No matter what trend you choose this season, you'll definitely be the most gorgeous person in the water.
