While summer technically begins June 21, 2014, Memorial Day marks the start of beach season. Therefore, to avoid being too late to the beach party this summer, start looking for swimsuits now. Are you not sure what to look for? These swimwear trends for summer 2014 will surely lead you in the right direction.
The Blue and White Bikini
Blue is already the color trend for the spring/summer fashion season. For swimwear, blue gains a fresh take when paired with white. Prints are fun and flirty, while blue and white stripes take on a sexier feel this season. Add this color pairing to the bikini and you will be hot poolside.
Hot Buy: Liz Claiborne Pushup Halter Swim Top for $44.00 at JCPenney.
The Black and White One-Piece
Another hot color combination for summer swimwear is black and white. We know this color combination works as it is the favorite color combo worn by Olivia Pope on “Scandal”. For swimwear, these colors look best on the one-piece swimsuit. It is modern when colorblocked giving a sexy, sporty chic feel. However, it is feminine and flirty when presented in prints.
Hot Buy: Upstream’s Women’s Plus Swimdress for $99.00 at Kohl’s.
Neon Brights for All
What better way is there to look hot at the beach than in bright colors? Neon colors will be burning up the beaches this summer in all styles of swimwear for all sizes. If you want to embrace this trend but are a little timid about wearing such intense color, try wearing a sheer white or black cover-up over your swimsuit to tame the brightness a bit.
Hot Buy: Monif. C’s “Sao Paulo” High-Waisted Bikini – Neon Orange for $88.00.
The Printed Two-Piece
Crazy prints seem to always be in for swimwear. This is especially so for young miss and juniors. These graphic, paisley, and multi-floral prints work well for two-pieces like tankinis. What is really hot right now are printed tankinis with a bra (preferably push-up) top.
Hot Buy: Forever Sexy Tie Front Tankini from $52.50 to $54.50 at Victoria’s Secret.
These four swimwear trends for summer 2014 are hot. As always, the “hot buys” are simply used as examples of the styles to look for. Go out there; find the trend that works for you and your budget. Then strut your stuff poolside or along the beach this summer.
