How to Choose the Colour of Your Swimwear


It’s been hot here in Melbourne the past week, and we’ve spent some quality time swimming in the pool.

  • This is something I never think about! Well, I try not to think about buying swimwear at all. But drawing attention to the eyes is a great idea.

  • How about contrast, like a blue swimsuit for a brown eye and vice-versa ? I'm asking because I'm brown eyed and I dislike brown swimsuits… they always look kind of.. well.. brown and tired. Similar to black swimsuits (yuck).
