Suddenly, gloriously, bona fide summer is upon us! With the temperatures soaring, a lot of us are going to be scrambling for a cute new two-piece to bust out at the beach, and Billabong has a sexy new line of swimwear that’s perfect for this season.
Think bright: this year focuses on flashy, attention-grabbing colours that will get you noticed. There’s a foxy new take on animal print in neon pinks, blues, yellows and purples—it’s a totally refreshing evolution of leopard print and very wild child. Or, you can bring out your inner hippie with tie-dye bikinis in gorgeous shades of pink, green and yellow; it’s a modern adaptation of a classic Bohemian look, so pair it with some boho bangles and vintage shades. There’s also adorable 1960s throw-back flower prints and very-70s sunset stripes that make this swim collection extra retro.
With both bold solids and flashy patterns, it’s easy to mix and match your perfect bikini combination. Or, play the tease in one of their super-girly one-pieces with cut-out sides, perfect for lounging by a rooftop pool with a cocktail.
If you’re looking for an après-swim cover-up, Billabong has a ton of dresses that would pair perfectly with these retro bikini looks including some colourful tie-dyes and feminine floral prints.
