If you’ve been treading water with a “good enough” swimsuit, it’s time to make more of a splash. With all the style variety, color options, mix and matches, you owe it to yourself to take a cannonball approach to this year’s swimsuit shopping.
Right from the Miami swim show runways to your backyard pool, here are the hottest looks - from bold cutouts, to fringe tops, to high-waisted bottoms.
Don’t be afraid to try on a variety of styles and colors. Strike a balance between understanding what looks good on your figure and also being open to trying on new styles. After the cut and fit is decided, then consider color. So if you’re pale, a black, dark brown, or navy may compliment your skin tone better than white or pastels. If your skn is darker, a wider variety of colors will be attractive.
You need to be prepared to try on a lot of swimsuits, and that means shopping on a day that you aren’t rushed, (hungry, cranky or with the kids) and well in advance of your flight for vacation. I have outlined some of the best shapes and styles to look for now and some advice on finding your very own miracle suit.
One piece: This style has made a huge comeback by literally every designer and can be just as sexy and chic as a bikini. I love a great one piece! A great style if you’re looking to camouflage a few trouble spots. Gathered fabric, shirring and rouching works well for thicker mid sections, as it will help reduce the appearance of bulges and create the illusion of a defined waist.
Tankini: This Two- piece style offers a laid back style with a more coverage than the usual 2-piece. It's quite comfortable and sporty for active women at the beach and pool.. The longer top covers waist concerns and is also comfortable for longer waised figures. This style doesn't offer control or shaping for fuller waists but it will camoflauge them.
Coverups - Flowing or sheer coverups are just as important as what you wear underneath. They can provide drama and comfort as well as some sun protection.
And last but definitely not least -- accessories, Bags, polishes, sandals and glasses. Nothing completes your summer look better than having and sporting this season’s hottest little extras. Don’t forget to add a little sparkle to your beach ensemble.
