Swimming In Style

No. I’m not going to teach you how to swim, but I will show you how to look stylish while doing it.  The swimsuit is the unofficial uniform of the summer so I’m here to help you sift through all the options.  There are so many styles it’s hard to know where to begin.  Are you a beachy surf print girl? Maybe a sleek one piece fits your style… or perhaps even a gold bikini peaks your interest?  Regardless, let’s dive in.

Clean cut lines and dramatic colors create a sophisticated modern look.  Try this bikini from ASOS.  High-rise bottoms are also a trend that’s getting more attention especially after this season’s runway shows.  Designers like Mara Hoffman and Diane Von Furstenburg recent collections features many high-waist pieces.

Bringing back memories from my 90’s childhood, the beach scene print bikini is back.  For me, this trend is dated but that could be because I live in a tourist infested beach town and see this pattern a little too much.  However, Diesel’s take on this print is a little more badass Hawaii Five-O so I’m down.

Itsy-bitsy string bikini is trending in vibrant patterns, tickled pinks, and gold lamés.  While some of you might be inspired enough to go for the gold, I think I’ll stick to bold prints.  One of my favorites from this season is CiaMaritima’s snakeskin print string bikini.
