Colour blocking, liquid brights, European lengths- the new, new season swimwear is less basic, more brash. Look for bolder trunks that hit above the knee (the three inch rule generally works), and in patterns that call immediate attention to toned physiques- power plaids, daring stripes and vivid hues. Add rugged accessories (beads, straightforward tees, smooth sunnies) to go effortlessly from surf to shore and revel in the dog days of summer.
