Soooo, lately the fashion industry has gone mad about plaid. In the past two years, we’ve seen celebrity after celebrity donning the boho plaid trend. And plaid bikinis serve the same purpose: to give a chic look the “not trying to hard” finish.
Here’s how you turn a typical checkered look into a glamorous one: add a little color. It seems starlets like Kate Bosworth (pictured left) definitely agree!
Reminiscent of the days of the Breakfast Club, plaid used to be a kind of middle-of-the-road print used typically in a more functional way, but nowadays, function has taken a back seat to fashionable! The newest arrival to our women’s swimwear boutique comes from the famous brazilian brand Salinas Swimwear. For 2011, Salinas introduces a storyline that mixes stripes and mesh to create an original effect (hence the name, Daiquiri, after a ‘mixed’ drink). The Daiquiri suit is a string bikini style that adds a little kick to an ordinary plaid trend. A layer of mesh, sewn perpendicular to the spandex striped fabric, creates a nuovo glam look worth writing about.
The best part? This bikini adds another level of sexy with its daring Brazilian cut rear and gold hardware detailing at straps.
