Stay Cool In The Heat With John Lewis
If you believe the weathermen, then by the middle of this week we are going to see some warmer temperatures and finally that yellow round thing in the sky may also make an appearance – well it has been a long time coming! So we thought we would take a look around one of our best loved department stores, John Lewis, to give you an idea of the kind of thing that you could be wearing this season so that you can make the most of the promised weather, however long it lasts.
In 2012, the key theme for the year is bright bold colours and even brighter patterns, and combining this with the right blue tones for your colouring will offer a look that is cool and sophisticated, even as the temperatures start to rise.
Colour and design is a great way of disguising any lumps and bumps you don’t want to show, but also emphasising the places you would rather people looked, to give you the confidence to walk tall when you hit the beach.
This Veletta Underwired Swimsuit from Fantasie at John Lewis uses the bold flower design in the material to effectively pull in your waist and flatten your stomach.
The centre of the flowers are carefully placed to camouflage the key problem areas for any woman while the gorgeous bold petals provide the colour and the emphasis to give you the best silhouette possible.
The underwired bra cups are tailored for every size from 34DD to 38G so there is no need to buy a bigger size of swimsuit just to accommodate your bust, get the size that is right for you and the support and shape will come as required followed by the sophistication and style that comes from buying swimwear from Fantasie.
Block colours and patterns are completely on trend this season and perfect for those that have a layer two they would rather not be showing in public.
This Florence Tie Waist Control Swimsuit uses the contrasting bright band just under the bust, to emphasise the slimmest part of your body and create a false waist that can draw in your stomach and make you look slimmer than you actually are.
The deep V neck cut on this style is ideal for drawing the eye upwards and providing emphasis to the top half of your body – perfect for a pear shaped woman that wants to bring symmetry back into her shape.
Combine this with the control fabric that is used front and back to provide both the support you need for the bust area and the shapewear effect to achieve a flatter and smoother silhouette and you have a swimsuit that is going to look good and feel fantastic no matter how hot the summer gets.
But for a more all over tan this season, we are loving the Palm Springs Bikini also from John Lewis that combines the cool blue shades and fantastic bold print of classic Fantasie designs with a gentle shimmer that puts your skin tones and body shape at their very best advantage when you are out in the sun.
By keeping the print to the top of the bikini and the very top of the briefs, the eye is immediately drawn upwards to the fantastic cleavage created by the hidden support that keeps any bra size from 34DD to a 38G looking pert and glamorous while offering the confidence and shape you need if you have larger breasts.
As the bikini top and bottoms are sold separately, you can ensure that both elements fit perfectly while the coordinating trim on the top of the briefs and tie side detail will accentuates your length and draw the eye across the tummy to effectively give you better apparent shape.
Adjust the briefs to either cover the bottom of your tummy or fold them down to reveal more of a toned physique and you have the perfect beachwear for the season. And when it all gets a bit too hot, coordinate with this matching kaftan, and you have everything you need for the ultimate in beach fashion.
