Mix & Match Like An Expert

Summer is here and Canadians know this is the time to get out to the lake (or backyard pool)! It’s the most wonderful time of the year because the days are full of sunshine, plus it’s Swimco’s Annual Summer Sale! If you’ve been putting off getting a new suit (or a second suit), now is the time.

While I’ve told you before why having more than one swimwear option is important, we’ve never discussed refreshing your existing pieces with sale finds, or how to mix and match like a pro to get a cool combination, without breaking the bank. So here are a couple of my top tips to think about when shopping the sale.

Want to update your solid bikini? An easy match is any printed top with solid coloured bottoms. Patterned tankinis look great with solids and work for beach days when you’d like some coverage.

Flip things and boost your booty with patterns on the bottom. Bright prints attract the eye, so use them strategically to balance out your beautiful shape and highlight your assets.

Sale season is the perfect time to test out trends! We’ve been seeing high necklines everywhere and whether you want to try them for fashion or function, there is a variety on sale so you can dip your toe in the trend for less!

These tops are great for lake season because they’re flattering and perform well during for water sports – tubing anyone?

Time to take things up a notch by mixing prints. This gives you a unique look and allows you to play with pieces from any brand, and any styles that suit you. Pick a few key colours, like the mint and coral example below, to keep things cohesive while still showing off your distinctive style.

Some brands are perfect for experimenting with multiple prints. Maaji designs are reversible and their look is all about pattern mashups so you get a variety of looks from one top and bottom combo.

For guys, mixing things up is a breeze – pair printed tops or bottoms back to solids that you have in your wardrobe (or upgrade during the sale!) and you’re ready for anywhere summer takes you. BONUS MATCH – add some SAXX while they’re on sale.

If all else fails, chat online or in person with one of our Fit Experts – we have swimwear mixing and matching down to a science! And with select sale styles at up to 50% OFF, it’s the perfect time to test the waters.
