Trend Report: Swimwear

Confidence is the most important element of your beach-ready look. This season’s hottest swimwear trends emphasize your right to experiment with new styles and mix and match bold colors with daring prints for a custom look that tells your story. Look outside the bikini box and seek a suit that flatters your figure.

2012 swimwear trends we’re loving right now include one-shoulder straps,’70s-inspired crochet overlay, soft ripple and ruching details, fierce fringe, cut-out monokinis, vibrant citrus and soothing pastel shades, unexpected animal prints (think: less leopard, more peacock), and gold-plated hardware for a subtle touch of glam. When it’s time to cover up, embrace resort wear that empowers your inner goddess, from luxuriously long maxi dresses, to short and silky rompers, and wide-legged pants with playful side slits. And fellas, don’t be afraid to pick shorter shorts with a pop of color or an edgy print.
