Nasty Gal is once again here to delight us with its summer 2016 swimwear line, which cheerfully takes us surfing the USA in California and then sunbathing for hours in Florida. Launched just in time for the Spring Break, the many swimsuits signed Nasty Gal embrace some of the coolest summer 2016 swimwear trends, both in designs and colors. The collection is also relatively affordable (you can get your favorite pieces now on NastyGal.com), and features various accompanying accessories that will surely come in handy while chilling and sunbathing on the beach.
Nasty Gal’s 2016 swimsuit line greatly varies in colors and prints, as it focuses both on solid-colored proposals and on botanical and geometrical patterns that could instantly cheer anyone up. Although focusing more on whites, blacks and overall dark tones (at times with shimmering finishes and at times opaque), the collection also features delicate combination of pastel colors that are nothing but a pure pleasure to watch. Nude hues are to be found too, as they skillfully play with optical effects and look like bare skin. It’s however with the silhouettes and lines that Nasty Gal plays the most, letting most of its proposals get dynamically and geometrically cut and laced up, consequently enhancing different body shapes.
The first thing one may notice while browsing through the proposals to find a new swimsuit is that Nasty Gal dedicated a large section to single piece designs, which actually are always desirable pieces to own as they let your entire body soak up the warm sunrays getting the perfect tan. To spice things up, Nasty Gal also brings in designs with deep V-necklines and/or with quirky nude-toned see-through inserts, giving summer the sexiest turn (for now). The super plunging V-neckline will be a recurring motif in 2016, so no wonder it got translated to the bikini proposals as well. While the necklines go deeper, however, the bottoms get higher, meaning that those who are obsessed with retro-style high-waist bikini bottoms can finally rejoice and have something cool to sport to the seaside.
As the lookbook images show, Nasty Gal firmly believes that trends are meant to be intertwined with one another, and shows us how to do it by combining cutouts with high-waist bottoms, lace-up one-piece swimsuits and even high-neck crop tops with sheer fabrics, proving us fashion is indeed versatile this year. The brand couldn’t exempt itself from delivering ironic pieces too, as proven by the many transparent mesh proposals and the fresh fruit printed bikinis that will instantly make you hear Lana Del Rey sing ‘summertime sadness’ in the background.
