The temperatures are creeping up and the air conditioning is being turned on full blast. In South Florida, thousands are all ready flocking to the beach and pools in their new summer swimsuit styles. If you want to be styling by the seashore, follow these 2014 fashion swimsuit trends:
As long as your swimsuit is white, off-white, cream colored, celestial white, brilliant white, white striped, white patterned, white lace, white crocheted, or white trimmed — then you are set. It is all about the white swimsuit this year.
As your toes hit the sand and your eyes scan the beach scene, you may think you have wandered back in time to the 50s and 60s. For two piece swimsuits, it is all about the bandeau and the boy cut. You will want to pack away your itty-bitty bikini for this season.
One-piece beauties have plunging V-shape necklines, boy-cut legs, and middle ruching galore. You will even see skirted suits at the pool or beach. Hello Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon.
Body Shapes and Such
There seem to be less individualized choices for the different body styles, but the suits are friendlier to curvy girls with big hips or bust. And pear-shaped girls are going to embrace the swimsuit season of ’14. With maximum coverage, you will be able to hide any of the body flaws that annoy you the most.
As long as it glitters and it is gold, you are good. Gold buttons, gems, chains, sequins, studs, stitching, appliques, and stones adore this season’s swimsuits. And they are plentiful, no embellishment skimping allowed. Go for the full bling effect. You will need to wear your gold and white sunglasses to keep the glare off of your eyes.
The hats are straw and sized as big as a boat. They do not need to necessarily be white like your suit, but I did see a few with gold embellishments just like on the swimsuits. This year, the swimsuit and everything that goes with it evokes the charm and style of old Hollywood. And with these over-the-top styles you will feel like Marilyn Monroe.
Grab your white swimsuit with gold jewels, your big floppy straw hat, and your gold bangles and head to the pool or beach knowing you are rocking the right style for the summer of 2014.
