Yellow/Orange

These colors are trending this year. Don't be surprised when a sea of this tint is flooding your retinas during the warmer days of the year.

Animal Prints

From zebras to panthers, everybody likes to go 'wild' from time to time. This season-less theme made its way from the land to the sea.

Stripes

This theme is timeless. Horizontally or vertical, these lines can be worn straight on the beach.

Metallic

When you take a glance at this shiny tone, the question is: does it match my complexion? The answer is complex: not for everyone but for the braver ones amongst us who want to express themselves.
