As the weather changes and our thoughts turn to summer, we naturally think of swimming and what we’re going to wear while in the water. Staying fashionable is always a good look, both at the beach and poolside. No matter your shape or how conservative you are, the right swimsuit is ready and waiting. Here we present a few of what are sure to be the most popular 2014 swimsuit trends.
The designers really pulled their best tricks out of the bag this year and took creativity to a whole new level. Some of the styles that push to the forefront are macramé (yes, you read that right) bikinis, prints which feature design motifs actually built around photographic images, and cut outs (mesh overlays over different shapes and designs). Tops that emphasize the bust in varied ways and suits that place high focus on an athletic build also take the lead in visibility.
According to FoxNews.com, colors will be all the rage this year. Bright colors and bold prints dominate, expressing themselves in floral designs, animal prints, stripes, and plaids. If you’re the kind of gal who likes to stand out from the rest of the pack when you’re by the water you’ll find everything that you need this year to meet your agenda.
Best trends for different body types
As we’ve already stated, this year there’s a little something for everybody. Svelte, plus size, twiggy thin, or average-the 2014 swimsuit trends will include just the right suit to reflect your own unique style and personality. For the more modest maiden, the strapless one-piece still allows your beauty to shine through without making you feel self conscious. Cover-ups are also available to complement your style. For the bold and sexy, the new cut-outs were made with you in mind. For the thicker ladies, the new retro looks will flatter you while taking your admirers back to a day and time when the most popular starlets were of the more Reubenesque variety. Is your body type a combination of other body types? Well, high-waisted bottoms and bustier tops will accent you to your best advantage.
Get ready, get ready, get ready because summer is coming! Grab those sunglasses, snatch that sunscreen, even buy a big floppy hat if it fits your style, and choose the best swimsuit for you from the vast array available in this year’s trends.
A word of advice: Just make sure you try your choice on before you leave the store and make sure that it looks as good on you as it does on the rack. The key to looking good waterside is wearing a swimsuit with sass and not letting it wear you.
