Sweet, Serene Styles

Taurus tends to opt for classic swimwear, so let’s jazz things up, whether it’s a new colour in a great one piece or soft floral bikini to complete your no-stress suitcase essentials.
Strengths: Reliable, loyal, sweet & chill.

Gemini: May 21-June 20
Multi-purpose Swim To Street
Gemini is the twin sign – you’re all about embracing every facet of your personality and life. Your swim should pull double-duty for multiple occasions. Fun crop tops and tankinis work as streetwear with denim, while textured one pieces look great as bodysuits for moments out of the water. New your bestie? The sarong! Wear it as a dress, cover up, scarf, beach blanket…the sky’s the limit.
Strengths: Affectionate, curious, adaptable & quick learners.

For Water Lovers
Cancers love the water! Your birthday comes at the start of summer, so spoil yourself with an amazing suit for the lake or pool. Botanical prints and turquoise remind us of tropical escapes. Since you’re likely to live in your swim, keep extra features in mind, like a paddle suit with built-in UV protection, or super slimming tummy panels in your one piece.
Strengths: Water lover, imaginative, sympathetic & persuasive.

Leo: July 23-August 22
Leos are regal and delight in being the centre of attention. The quickest way to steal that spotlight is in red-hot swimwear (you’re a fire sign after all). Rompers are a bold, eye-catching trend that offers great coverage. Plus, if you choose one that works for swim and street, you’re ready to socialize right out of the pool for a no-shower cocktail hour.
Strengths: Creative, cheerful, vivacious & funny.

Virgos also love value, so be sure to find pieces with quality details, like tankinis lined for a figure-flattering fit and cover ups with built-in sun protection.

Capricorn is a sign with a lot of self-control. You’re not one to hop on fleeting fashion fancies, but you’re just as interested in looking good as anyone else!

Classic yet fun, timeless and of-the-moment – they’re the best of both worlds.

Aquarius: January 20-February 18
Light & Airy
Even though you have “Aqua” in your name, Aquarius is actually an air sign. Light and airy is the name of your swimwear game. Kimonos allow you to indulge in the breeze, while bright white suits stand out against a summer glow and play up to your angelic nature. Look ribbed fabrics to hint at the texture trend without feeling like you’re following the crowd.
Strengths: Progressive, celestial, original & independent.

Pisces: February 19-March 20
Pisces is a sign that loves fantasy. It’s easy to be swept away in the rush of romance and excitement of summer. Go with it! Florals and fuchsias feel so right this season, and they work well together as a capsule wardrobe for long weekends away. Artistic Pisces also loves design details, like ribbed fabric (a trend to watch!), ruching, and lace up ties.
Strengths: Compassionate, intuitive, artistic & musical.
