The Style Hawker: Rise Of Mama Friendly Swimwear

Style & BeautyPost Category - Style & BeautyStyle & Beauty - Post Category - Style For YouStyle For You

The Style Hawker – celebrity stylist Annabel Kerman – runs through a raft of swimwear styles that can suit any body.

The subject of swimwear is a tricky one. A necessity on this side of the world where many move seamlessly from condo pool to beach resort, and yet the cause of female angst on a major scale. Yes the suffragettes might have disapproved, but here in Singapore these things matter, particularly for those of us juggling multiple children as part of our beach look. Do you succumb to the rash vest and boy shorts? The demure swimsuit? Or are you still able to flaunt a gym body in a micro string number?

Throughout my youth the string bikini was the aspiration: the only style that a self-respecting 1990’s beach babe would favour. (In case you’re wondering, no I didn’t fit that description). However as much as I still am still in awe of a gravity-defying micro bikini, slowly the tide is changing. No longer is mini the ideal; suddenly swimwear fashion is about covering up. The one piece is currently huge news, with Moschino leading the way, and now the rash vest, surely the sensible aunt of swimwear, seems to be nailing it. Finally an area of fashion that anyone can embrace.

Here in Singapore I am more than a little excited that uber-fabulous French swimwear label Eres has recently launched its first stand-alone store in Asia. Founded in the 1960’s and brought under the Chanel umbrella two decades ago, its style credentials are undebated, but it also nails it on practicality. The brand’s ethos is of a ‘partnership with a woman’s body whatever her shape, through changes wrought by the passage of time.’ So far so perfect. Plus it utilises clever body sculpting know-how, and positively benefits from being thrown in the washing machine. Luxe swimwear with the ability to turn you into a goddess, and no more hand washing. All that’s left is to pick your style.

1. Classic one piece

The classic one piece is a revelation: a swimwear style low on effort and high on style. Try Interesting shapes or a traditional high leg style to give a 90’s twist.

2. Cut-out swimsuit

The cutaway swimsuit is easier to pull off than it looks, and gives a boost of sex appeal. Just make sure the cut out shows your best bits.

3. Big bikini bottoms

Big bikini bottoms have been edging back in for several seasons with the 1950’s remaining a key trend to tap. Team with a bandeau, or halter for maximum retro appeal.

4. Skimpy two piece bikini

The skimpy two piece remains the choice of the brave, but this season try mix and matching a string bottom with a more structured top, or vice versa.

You can visit the brand new Eres boutique at The Four Seasons Hotel, 190 Orchard Boulevard 01-12, Singapore 248646.
