We’ve been pondering the delights of swimwear lately. If the heat doesn’t get to you, we don’t know what will! Just try to avoid seeing all the cute sets in all the magazines. One of our favorites at the minute has to be the new swimwear and beachwear range from Debenhams.com. Many styles which go swimmingly (pun intended) with jeans! During our research, we came across some pretty useful tips, so thought we’d share!
If you’re big up top, look for swimsuits with built in support for the chest but also with some eye-catching detail around the waist, such as ruching or a design, to draw attention away from your chest, Oprah recommends. If you are small-chested, pick styles that have padding in the bra section. Alternatively, emphasise your assets with eye-catching colors and prints. Small prints are best as they make an area look bigger. On a practical note, if you are planning on going for a swim, a heavily-padded suit may not be the best choice—it’ll take ages to dry!
If your lower half is biggest, Glamour advises that you go for swimsuits and bikinis with high-leg cuts rather than boy shorts. We can see from their pictures that higher-cut options make legs look longer and the hip and derriere area look smaller. If you’re really not about putting your body on display, strapless dresses look the part while you’re lying on the beach. And, don’t forget all the fun sandals out right now: chunky straps for daytime; leg-lengthening neutral tones for the evening. We feel armed to make our swimwear choices now, and we hope you feel the same!

It’s not even June and the smokin’ celebrity beach photos (like our favorite jean minx, Jessica Alba) are already all over the tabloids, and we know how influential those photos can be. You’ve probably been working out all summer in preparation for your bathing suit debut, right? And, while you know you’ll be able to squeeze that tight little thing into a skimpy bikini, you may be worrying how your summer figure will work with all of your non-beach clothes. That’s where we come in! Denim Therapy will resize your jeans to fit you like a glove — it can be as simple as a waist cinching to a full-on refitting. And it’s often cheaper than buying new jeans! Give it a shot!

Wait one moment. Is that–is that sun we feel? Maybe it’s just wishful thinking, but we’re already looking towards summer and maybe hallucinating that it’s warmer than it actually is. Here is a look that is perfectly beachy, but will suit you for springtime. Style blogger Jennifer paired her peachy jeans with a pastel-adorned white crop top, bangles, cat-eye sunglasses, and neutral heels. Airy, light, and chill as can be. We approve.

Naked & Famous‘ Mens Spring/Summer 2012 line is sticking to its roots with authentic, top-quality, raw denim, but while increasing the options you have to get your hands on it. They have taken their skinny, mid-rise, and tapered cuts and released them in new colors such as red and wine, constructions, and surfaces. So now you can really find the pair of jeans that is best and most comfortable for your body, and still know that you’re wearing some of the most rare and unique denim, straight from Japan. What we’re really jealous of are the raspberry scented low-rise jeans—we mean, amazing denim that smells amazing too? Yes please. Besides the colored denim, they also are offering slim-fitted button downs to patch their red denim palette, along with a crisp, dark-wash jean jacket which is a definite must-have if your guy still hasn’t caught on to this classic trend yet.
