Summer is Coming

It’s springtime in the northern hemisphere and people nearest the equator are starting to feel the warmth of ‘Mister Sun’ as summer approaches.  This is the perfect time to look at current fashion trends on swim wears so you would know what to wear when you hit the beach or spring resort.  Know what monokini and bikini styles are in as well as the cool cover ups for the season.

Swimwear Color and Print

According to top designers, swim wear colors for 2010 are bright and eclectic. Fluorescent colors will be mixed with black and white. This year is a chance to break away from dark neutrals in exchange for color splash. However, if you are trying to create that slimmer look, choose plain dark colors like black.

In terms of design, graphic prints on swim wears will come alive this year. You will see geometric shapes, stripes, animal prints in addition to feminine floral prints. Be sure to match the graphic print design to your body stature.

For a plus size swimwear to be flattering, opt for a medium-size overlapping print. When choosing stripes, remember that horizontal stripes has a widening effect on body shape while vertical and diagonal stripes make you look slimmer.

Swimwear Style

Hottest swimwear styles for 2010 are: Cut-away, Cutouts, Deep V Plunge Neckline, One-shoulder Monokini and Bandeau Bikini tops. Sheer and maxi cover ups are still cool this year and Bohemian look will make a shrill fashion statement. Strapless romper cover up is also hot this year.

Monokini cut-away and cut-outs are swimwear styles for the more daring types with toned bodies and not for the faint of heart. Though they offer more coverage than a bikini, they are more revealing than a one-piece. Be ready for the funny tanning marks that these swim wears leave your skin. Year 2010 swimwear trends feature asymmetry in cutouts such that holes can be on one side only or there are more holes on the other side. Swimsuit with cutouts can make you feel young and hip but make sure to choose swimsuits with strategically placed cutouts to show off your body to its best advantage.

Deep V plunge neckline flatters petite, is bust-enhancing and elongates the neck. A one-piece V neck still looks daring and sexy if it plunges below the bust line or the waistline. If you have long torso, well defined waist and bust (not DD cup), this style is suitable for you.

One-shoulder is a must-have for 2010. Asymmetry doesn’t make you look shorter so this style would be suitable for petites. The exposed one shoulder provides the high fashion look. This style has made splashes on one-piece swimsuits, bikinis and cover-ups. Some designers made stand out pieces by combining the single shoulder style with cut-out.

Bandeau bikini top would also be a hit this year but this is not for busts larger than cup C. Totally bare your shoulders and emphasize your figure as your bandeau top pull everything up.

Swimwear Accessories

Let’s face it, most ladies don’t go to beaches and pools just to wet their toes. It’s a chance to socialize and show off what you've got. Be glamorous…accessorize your beach wear with fashion trendy cover-ups.

Romper or jumper has often been associated with children’s fashion but for 2010 the strapless romper is the hot cover-up trend for ladies hitting the beach. This style is both adorable and comfortable.

If you want to recycle swimsuit pieces from last year, sheer cover up is a must have. It goes perfectly well with any swimsuit style. How about an over-sized sun glasses and wide-brimmed tropical hat to go with it?

For maximum coverage and style, grab a maxi cover-up. This style is also in for 2010 but the petites must choose narrower cuts to join the maxi trend. This style is great both for beaches and poolside or when dining in a nearby restaurant. Depending on its print sheer and maxi dresses can also make for a Bohemian look.

You may achieve that cool Bohemian look by grabbing Russian inspired, gypsy, and folk pieces for cover ups then tie with leather belts over your swimsuits and wear bright colored coin/charm jewelries.

The trend for beach bags is big and bold. Combine functionality with fashion by striding the beach with big and stylish island themed bags.

Let comfort and fashion guide you in choosing your swimsuit and accessories. Be fashion forward and get the best from your spring and summer outings. Just don’t forget your sun block!

That Tribal Affair swimsuit is fantastic! One of the other big swimwear trends now is for women to enhance the size of their cleavage with a gel bikini, see http://gelbikini.org/ . This is basically a bikini with gel filled cups to give the "enhanced" look. They also come in swimsuit and tankini variety and really do help a woman feel more confident in swimwear!
