Swimsuit styles haven’t seen any drastic changes over the years – still stick with bikinis, one pieces, and the occasional tankini. Of course, your individual style and the season’s trends will dictate what kind of basic you wear this year, so here’s your head’s up:
In 2008, Gottex Swimwear brings bright happy colors, with an emphasis on those inspired by your favorite citrus fruits. Look for succulent limes and pucker-worth lemon shades, accented by blacks, purples, and gorgeous whites. Patterns are equally summer-inspired, sporting beautiful designs that will stimulate your eyes while they cover you up. Fisico promises trendy whites and blacks, accented with celestial blues, bright salmons, and inspired oranges. Look to these as good indicators to the colors you’ll soon find on shelves.
Styles are diverse and sexy this year, offering skimpy bikinis for those blessed with a healthy self esteem, plunging halters to show off your bustline, one pieces with blocked markings designed to flatter, and boy shorts to show off a toned posterior. To cover up, look to trendy tshirts, long flowing wraps, and comfortable pants that will let the breeze blow through.
