When the leaves are just starting to bruise a muddy yellow at the tips, and the air cuts a slight bite into your cheeks every morning, fashion week in Sydney stretches its proverbial legs and switches into gear.

Fashion week, in the famous words of Carrie Bradshaw, means all new beginnings and fresh, exciting change “Every year the women of New York leave the past behind and look forward to the future… this is known as fashion week”.

This is the perfect time to shake off your old moth-eaten bathing suit and take in what’s happening with all new trends in beautiful designer swimwear . This way you can stay on top of the best new designs, fabrics and cuts that will have you picturing the sizzling heat they are made to be worn in!


What’s New in Stylish Swimwear


When shopping for new swimwear options you’ll notice there is always a sea of typically beach-ready, slap-on triangle bikinis. Interestingly though, in recent years the rise of the one-piece has began to hitch up its hemline and take over.

The classic high thigh cut, and low, daring back, of one piece swimwear seems to indicate a re-visited whimsical penchant for old-fashioned romanticism in the contemporary woman. It somehow conjures up a nostalgic black and white photograph of a beautiful woman with long legs and the sun in her eyes, posing and laughing in the sand and wind. What’s not to love? One- piece swimwear is classically beautiful and its whole purpose is to wrap around and enhance your body like good posture.

A new, modern take on the traditional one-piece that has seen rising popularity on beaches worldwide is the strategically cut monokini. This design takes the safe comfort of a one-piece and turns it on its head with carefully placed cutouts that skate around curves and are in-your-face sexy, emphasising your assets. Monokinis are confidence in a piece of fabric, and typically look best with a unique, bright and eye-drawing pattern that offers a euphoric feel to enhance that whole experience.

About Claire Cooper

"Recently graduated from Melbourne University with a BA in Media and Communications. I am a very happy little Melbournite now, but grew up in the beautiful beachside town of Byron Bay, and before that teeny tiny Norfolk Island. I've lived a stones throw from the beach my whole life and miss it terribly, so you will regularly find me jumping into freezing Victorian waters for fun. I speak passable Spanish, love traveling, beach volleyball, fashion, reading and writing, and experiencing different cultures. I am also an advocate for health and active lifestyles, and have the bronze cross for Royal Life Saving."
