Itís late spring. The task youíve been dreading can
no longer be put off. Unless youíre shaped like a supermodel,
shopping for a new swimsuit can be a daunting task. Resist the
temptation to resuscitate your dingy old swimsuit! 2009ís swimwear
trends run the gamut from eye-poppingly daring to elegantly subtle,
so whatever your shape, youíll be able to find a flattering and
stylish suit that youíre comfortable wearing. Here are some of the
top trends of 2009:
The one-shouldered look. Inspired,
perhaps, by Michelle Obamaís inaugural dress, the one-shouldered
cut has even made its way into swimsuits. The asymmetrical
neckline lengthens the neck and torso and seductively bares one
shoulder. You can play it demure or sassy: a one-shouldered suit
can be an elegant twist on the standard maillot, whereas a
one-shouldered bikini makes a bold, sexy statement.
Cut-outs. You may not want to go for the
bandage look of the extreme cut-out suit, but the monokini can
be a fun, flirty alternative to the bikini. Depending on the
location and size of the cut-outs, these swimsuits can reveal as
much or as little skin as youíre comfortable showing.
Vintage-inspired. If you long for the days
in which bikini bottoms covered a little more of, well, your
bottom, youíll be delighted to learn that vintage style cuts and
prints are back. Whether you opt for a 1940s striped pin-up
style bikini or a sunny, skirted, polka dot one-piece,
sweet-but-sexy vintage style swimsuits are bringing welcome
relief to tummies, thighs, and female egos everywhere.
Bold jewel tones. If you want something
brighter than a vintage stripe or polka dot, tropical colors
like fuchsia, turquoise, and tangerine are perfect for making a
statement. You can find them as striking colorblocks, solids, or
accents on otherwise neutral swimsuits.
Prints. Geometric, ethnic, animal, retro,
paisley Ė itís all good this year, as long as it flatters your
shape and tickles your fancy.
Sheer cover-ups. Because swim-suits arenít
really just about swimming, these light cover-ups can add a
touch of elegance and enigma to your look this summer. Pale and
prone to floating, these updated togas can have you drifting
ethereally along the strand in style.
