All you need is sun

Winter is ending (in Australia). Okay, that is just a rumor we heard that we can neither confirm nor deny, but these temperatures have to end sometime, right? And what is the first thing we are going to do? Head to the beach, sand, sun or the pool.  For some of us, why wait? Escape the winter chills and seek a destination where the sun is out.

Strangely, Winter hasn’t stopped some of us from preparing for swimsuit season. Men flexing their muscles in the gym, Women stretching out in the Yoga stances… while real people have actually been eating Nutella and watching Netflix. I thought I might help you find a couple of the coolest swim gear around for your next trip and I’ve even prepared a list of places around the globe to show off that sexy outfit.

For the ladies, the most favourite beachwear is the bikini, but there are several other types available. I always say, just wear what­ever you want, just as long as you feel com­fort­able and happy in your own skin. Check out Seafolly Australia, Triangl Swimwear and Jets.  Trav­ellers Tip: Bikini are light and dry quickly.

For the Men, isn’t life awesome and easy, board shorts or trunks. Warning: Budgie smugglers is not a look (in my opinion)! aussieBum, Hurley, and The Critical Slide Society (TCSS) and  has a great selec­tion as their pants dry fast and look great even for casual wear by the beach.
