Swimwear Trends: Goodbye, Itsy-Bitsy-Bikini!

When it comes to swimwear, sometimes MORE is more.

More fabric, that is. Teeny, weeny triangle-top bikinis and tie-on-the-side bathing suits leave so little to the imagination and also deprive a fashion-forward girl the opportunity of wearing a REAL swimsuit – a fabulous one.

The trend in swimsuits today, leans towards a retro-style with shirred one-pieces and high-waisted bikinis.

These aren’t the inelegant, dowdy suits your grandmother wore. With chic cut-outs, gorgeous belt accents & bustier tops – these are swimsuits that compliment curvy women and the not-so-curvy alike.

Not the type to go traipsing along the beach in a swim dress, bangles and wedge heels?

Pret-a-Surf may have just the suit for you. Specializing in functional fashion, they have designed a line (samples posted above) for the woman who wants to look good while playing and competing – perfect for the surfer girl.

Still not sure if you’re ready to trade in your old triangle-top for a more alluring, posh look?

I’ve chosen some of my favorite looks for your perusal from brilliant designers like Norma Kamali, Zeki and Michael Kors – among others…


Be Inspired. Be Lovely.
