Is Neon ‘the’ style of this season?

Bikinis, bikinis everywhere but are you still stuck on what to wear? Well, open your eyes and look around – what do you see? Neons! Yes, the flashy, fancy and luminous tones are back and with a bang!

2014 is witnessing the rise of many unique trends and neon swimwear is one of them. Although traces of it have been seen before, never has it been so popular than it is now. Many designer swimwear brands are taking the plunge into neon and coming up with swimwear pieces that not only catch the eye but also your heart!

Neon Bikini and Cover Up

 Neons are quite in demand. And why wouldn’t they be, when they make the wearer stand out from the crowd and flaunt their bods in the best way possible. Neon bikinis will keep you in the spotlight from dawn till dusk! What’s more, this retro-trend is not just about colors but also about designing and style, because the latest 2014 neon bikinis are not just bright pinks, reds or greens, they are stylish triangle tops, fringes, bandeaus and everything that makes them ever more coveted among beach goddesses.

Neon Bikinis

Why Neons?

If your plan for the season is to make the sun shine brightest on you, then go for neon without a second thought. Or if you want something new  to work with as a contrast to your prints, flat pastels and naturals with something zesty this season – go for neon!

The good thing about neon is that there’s never a dull fashion ensemble in your wardrobe! Plus when you don’t want to be all-too-colorful then you can throw a macramé or mesh-woven cover up or a dress of a nude/ neutral tone over it and create a great look for the season.

The question of whether neon is the style this season, still remains though. Our answer, not quite. It’s certainly one of the more popular trends but to call it the top trending style statement of 2014 is definitely over stretching it a bit. It will be some time before the neon bikini replaces the little black dress.

Our verdict on Neons: A most definitely yes! Not just for the sake of trying a new or the latest trend but for wearing a bold and beautiful style statement. Forget about your beach-gal-type for a moment and be unabashed in embracing new looks for this season. Even if the little neon bikini is a bit out of your comfort zone, why not try it out and maybe the glammed-up look becomes your style eventually! :)

2014 Bikinis and Swimsuits
  • A heartwarming love for naturals! Yes, from working with natural colors to going for natural fabrics, designers are nodding a full-headed yes to going all natural. There are certain brands such as Greenleeswim who have introduced the Little Recycled Bikinis or (LRB) and met with huge success.
  • As 2014 is witnessing no single predominant or prevailing trend in terms of colors or fabrics, the preference for natural tones and pastel shades is perfectly balanced by corals, neons, bright solid tones and digital prints for bikinis, dresses and cover ups.
  • Use of embellishments is back. Although the revival is not that pronounced but this trend sure makes its presence felt in beaded bikinis and dresses with beaded tassels.

Is 2014 About Bikinis or Cover Ups?

January is almost over but still you can sense the Euphoria in the air. Especially since the beach season is fast approaching! We have all seen the latest designs and collections and are now ready to try them on at the beach and see what happens!

The 2014 swimwear collections have mixed bright colors, bold cuts and silhouettes with funky, vibrant prints, incorporating embellishments into the designs and creating some really amazing bikinis. But another trend has emerged. And that is of the cover-up taking the center stage than ever before.

2014 Bikinis
2014 Cover Ups


















Earlier cover ups were just an accessory and one did not see much innovation in them. But now, cover ups have become haute couture with more and more designers paying more attention to the swim cover up. There are Kaftans, embellished cover ups, beach dress cover ups in bright hues and bold whimsical prints.

But is 2014 the year of the bikini or is the spotlight going to shine on the cover ups? The bikini is and will always remain evergreen, with slight changes in the designs or styles. But 2014 is definitely the year of the cover ups. We are seeing a lot more versatility in the designs, the flowy fabrics used, the silhouettes to even the length and the sexy cuts. The newest addition are cover up dresses which can even double as an evening dress for the hot date you scored in the beach! The cover up is evolving and we’re loving it!
