Pool Party Style

As summer heats up and you start prepping to jump in the nearest pool, check out our overview of the latest trends in bathing suit style for girls and guys!

Plaid is Rad + Check It

All year long, two of the major fashion trends have been plaid – a pattern of criss-crossing stripes in different colors – and square checks, so it only makes sense that these looks have crossed over into pool-appropriate apparel. Check out this cool checked cami swimset from Roxy for girls, and these awesome plaid shorts (they come in a two-pack) from Surf Zone:

Polka Dot Hot

Seems like the polka dot will never go out of style! This classic pattern hits the spot, even when that spot is underwater! For girls, we love Mystic Apparel’s sweet polka-dot two piece; for guys, we’re not sure anything can beat these Quiksilver board shorts:

Rainbow Bright

A splash of color is always a good thing, especially when you’re splashing around in the pool. Rainbow is a big hit this year in swim style, and both boys and girls can sport this multi-toned look. Here are two of our fave rainbow swim statements: a tie-dye number from Xhilaration (girls) and shorts from Billabong (guys):

Plus, take a peek at these cute rainbow board shorts from Aeropostale for girls:

Flower Power

Who says flowers are just for girls (although Roxy makes the prettiest flowered bikini ever!)? Big, bold petals can look just as swimming pool cool on guys; here’s a pair of Hawaiian-flower-inspired trunks from Quiksilver to prove it:

Skulls on a swimsuit? You know it! Both girls and boys can rock this style while they’re swimming, thanks to Old Navy (girls’ one piece with rainbow-colored skulls) and Mossimo (boys’ skull-and-crossbones swim short):

Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says

My bff and I were best friends but weve grown apart im getting older and she still wants to do kid stuff I have new friends now I feel like im being mean to her but like doesn't she get the memo I feel both guilty and mad:} Gosh.... put the shoe on  the other foot and see how would you feel if your bff done this on you. You has been bffs for the long time [Im guessing] and your maturing faster than her.  I agrees you are being mean to her if you doesnt discuss how your feeling with her and ignoring / avoiding her or whatever your doing.    She has been the good friend to you and she deserves to understand if you is growing up faster than her.  I really feels sad for how she could be feeling right now. She didnt do anything wrong.  You changed. Not her. Please be nice to your friend/ex friend and let her down gently [if you really has to] ^^ Me opinion
