You know that summer has officially started when you make a trip to Les Promenades Gatineau, the swimsuit racks are full of lovely finds and you can’t stop yourself. With over two months left in the season of barbecues, poolsides and sunny afternoons, the time’s still right to add a nice swimsuit to your collection!
To help you find that latest addition to your wardrobe, here’s what’s in swimsuit-wise for summer 2018.
No, ladies, one-piece swimsuits aren’t just for women in their fifties. Sexy and feminine, the one-piece is making a real comeback this year, with a variety of unique models, in bright colours, neutrals or patterns.
Whatever your style, you’ll find the one-piece you need at Bikini Village.
Ladies with a smaller bust will be pleased to learn that bandeau tops are quite popular this season! A fashion fave for summer 2018, this style is perfect for active girls who still want a sexy look! While strapless bandeaus can be very elegant, many boutiques at Les Promenades Gatineau, including Garage and Simons, also have bandeaus that fasten around the neck. Love ’em!
Just between us, we’ve got a soft spot for this reversible bandeau we found at Simons.
Ruffles fit right in under the sun this summer! On bottoms and tops, but also on one-piece suits, the style adds an ultra-feminine touch to any beach look. As ruffled pieces add volume, those with a more ample bustline shouldn’t choose a ruffled top. On the other hand, if you want to highlight your butt, this fashion trend gives you the perfect opportunity.
White, white and more white. After white sneakers, white swimsuits have also found their place among this season’s swimsuit faves! Whether you’re looking for a one-piece, bikini or trikini, you’ll find it at many Les Promenades Gatineau shops, including La Vie en Rose and Forever 21.
High waist bikini bottoms
Bye bye, love handles! Finally, there’s a bikini bottom that slims your figure — retro and high waisted! This style, which recalls the 1950s, is perfect for hiding minor blemishes in your lower belly or highlighting your hips.
Cheeky, tanga, Brazilian or ruffle? You’ll find the retro bottom you need at H&M.
