Swimwear trends SS14 – retro-inspired prints

The trend for all things retro looks like it is here to stay for at least another season, and we have to admit we’re hooked on this season’s retro-inspired prints in swimwear. There’s a distinctly Seventies vibe going around right now, with everything from bold geometrics to psychedelic patterns and stylised florals. Here’s our pick of some of the coolest retro prints out right now.
