With the weather warming up and everyone booking their summer vacations, it’s time to talk swimsuit fashions. Don’t be afraid to go swimsuit shopping this year….2013 marks the return of the one-piece swimsuit! If you still love the bikini look, there are plenty of 2 piece styles as well.
THE ONE PIECE SUIT
The one piece swimsuit is back in style, with a flair, just as the fashion shows have been predicting. But more coverage doesn’t need to be boring — look for daring off the shoulder styles, strapless swimwear and monokinis. Off the shoulder styles show just enough skin in all the right places, but you can be sure your suit is going to stay put! Strapless swimwear coordinates well with skirts for a beach-to-restaurant look. Have the body for a bikini? Try a monokini, a 2 piece with sheer, connecting material down the front.
The same style we saw a lot of on the Grammy red carpet is making its way into swimsuit fashions. Cut-outs in all shapes, sizes and locations are popping up in swimwear. Look for bold cut outs as well as more lace-like peekaboos in swimsuit fashions for 2013. Choose a style that shows off your best asset.
Properly placed ruffles can help add definition and curve to a body, or can cover up problem areas. When using horizontal ruffles to cover up, just don’t choose ruffles that are too wide, as they will actually draw too much attention to the wrong area. Choose diagonal ruffles along plunging necklines.
RETRO STYLE SWIMWEAR
The boy short style is back in a retro way. The popular high waisted style of the boy short can be so flattering for a variety of body shapes. Retro style has a great look and feel that will have you keeping active with water skiing, wave pool action and even beach volleyball! Look for top and bottom separates with polka dots, bold prints and bright colors.
