This Season’s Hottest Swimwear Trends For Every Body Type

Swimwear Trends for the Upcoming Season

Choosing the right bikini or one-piece is often a lifelong struggle for women.  On one hand, there’s all those “rules” that tell you which body type you have and which swim suit suits you best.  On the other hand, there are always such amazing fashion trends that don’t exactly work for your body type.  It’s a difficult process, but there is something for every body type to choose from with the range of different cuts, designs, and products.

Cuts

When it comes to the design of all types of swimsuits, it is easy to forget all that you know about them or you think you know. One thing is for sure, the one-piece swimsuits will be big this year, just as they were the previous season.

What makes them even more interesting are the alterations to the classical one piece swimsuits, like cut-outs.  Also, don’t be surprised if you see some one piece swimsuits with leg openings that reach all the way over your hips, or those with collars or G-strings.

It seems that this year, the designers have attempted to reinvent the look of the swimsuits and break down all the rules. Two-piece swimsuits with long sleeves and those with many straps and ribbons will definitely leave some interesting tan lines on the beaches this year.

If you thought that the cuts will go nuts this season, you should definitely check out the colors and patterns. This season, you just cannot go wrong. The very colorful and complex patterns are a real hit this season. If they are on a two-piece swim suit they can be only on one piece while the other one can be single colored. Or it doesn’t have to be.

There are also some really nice, simple, one piece swimsuits with bright colors that resemble those of the ‘90s and even a whole trend of entirely black swimwear that combines some interesting materials and bring some classy elegance to the beach. While this extravaganza is in this year, there is also entirely different stream in trends this year, with very simple and sporty designs which go with those bright and simple colors and straight lines.

Famous Designs

All these conclusions about the swim suits for the year to come are taken by analyzing and watching what the designers have come up with. To name the few: Department stores had some fun experimenting with new styles.  Their choices for this season include straps, straps, and more straps which make one-piece suits look like two pieces connected with interesting cuts and designs.

Besides that, they used some crochet in their designs and focused their main colors on yellow and bright pink.  On the other hand, Planet Blue has taken an entirely different direction with the colors. They are all for muted, earthy and skin tones and their prints are all scenery-like. The cuts and styles put the efficiency and sporty look as a priority. Alene Too wanted to make the swimwear something that will be worn outside the beach as well. Interesting cuts that resemble tops more than swim suits can be used as regular clothes as well.

What to expect to see in stores this Spring

All these ideas that come from the designers are interesting and fun, but once you go out in search of your go-to swimwear for this year, you can expect to see brands like Victoria Secret to have more universal versions of these design ideas, along with the classical cuts from past seasons.

Therefore, this year, it is very hard to go wrong. Perhaps, the best bet is to choose the suit according to your body type but go trendy with the choice of colors and patterns. The best thing about this trend is that if you cannot decide if you want a one color or patterned swimsuit, you can choose both!

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Gianmarco Lorenzi

Donald Trump boasts he makes the best hotels in the world, and I have to agree.  I boast that I make the best ceviche in the world, and, quite frankly, I do.  Gianmarco Lorenzi boasts he makes the most perfect heel in the world, and I’m inclined to agree, as I don’t see why he’d say it if it wasn’t true…

Over the last 30 years, Gianmarco Lorenzi has been creating feminine designs that blend the lines between shoes and art.  These sandals, using geometric shapes, are unbelievably sexy and uber-fashionable.

Wear ’em with a red hot mini, or a textured dress (think tweed) in cobalt blue or green.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Stella McCartney

It’s baaaack!  The flatform, that is (if my autocorrect will stop spelling flatworm finally).  Once a forgotten 90’s staple, this summer, the flatform sandal will be seen in all variations and form.  Stella McCartney was one of the pioneers of bringing back the chunky footwear in her Fall/Winter 14-15 show via her platform lace-up shoes.  Now, she’s transformed the platforms for her Resort 2015 collection, creating colorful pool slides.

The fun striped pair of foam-platform sandals looks amazing paired with her colorful resort collection.  You can recreate the look by pairing the sandals with a red jumper, or don an all white ensemble to make the shoes really stand out.
