It's almost swimsuit season and we all know what that means, some extra gym sessions and hot new trends to show off that rocking body! For summer, designers are playing with color blocking, cutout pieces and even bringing back the one-piece bathing suit while looking sexier than ever. There are a few new trends to look for while bathing suit shopping this season, so grab your sunglasses, throw on some sunblock, and take a look at how you can get some of these fresh new trends for less!
With Swim 2012 Mercedes- Benz Fashion Week just a week away in Miami, it is almost impossible not to think of next year’s bikini season. Even though this summer is still young and our July 4th bikinis are fresh from the cleaners, swim 2012 designs are not to be ignored. Attention grabbing designs give an overall “Look at Me” vibe to these swimwear trends, so confidence is a key ingredient to pulling these off. One important piece of advice for this season and next; you don’t have to wear a string bikini to show off your sexy side. Whether your sun bathing in St. Tropez or the shores of New Jersey, here is a glimpse at what trends to expect for the next swim season, and some you can still snag for this year!
Forget everything you know about ruffles: ballet costumes, Easter dresses, baby bibs, potato chips...this season the word ruffle takes on a new meaning: chic. In the Elizabethan day, ruffles were worn to show a woman’s status in society. The “hierarchical” element created through this design has found its way back, and it's better than ever! This look can be worn in many ways – purchase a dress from one of our featured collections, or try a blouse with a ruffle front tucked into a pair of skinny or wide leg jeans with a bright belt and a killer clutch. From shoes to dresses, handbags to tops, the ruffle is back and better than ever.
