Summer is almost here, and it’s time to find the top swimsuits of 2016! Trending now: high waist suits, cut outs and fringe. This season has something for everyone and as we head towards the summer Olympics in Rio, it’s not surprising that swimwear is hotter than ever!
Cut It Out!
We loved this trend last fall in dresses, blouses and jeans, now cutouts are on the beach as well. Slashes, cutouts and holes feature skin, legs, even belly buttons! When it’s on top, bathing suits look like halter tops and will emphasize your great shoulders and arms.
High waist jeans are still the craze, and high waist bikini bottoms are following this popular and evolving trend. Instead of a bikini bottom being too high, designers suggest waists that fall under the belly button. It’s a great way to cover up a bit and still sizzle. Wear a high waist bikini bottom with heels to a pool party, and you’re sure to turn heads.
Gone are the days when the careful beach goers only made their statement with a beautiful cover up or kaftan. This summer’s suits are gorgeous with design, fringe and lace. Check out the ethnic prints, crochet tops and fabulous colors. Don’t miss out. Summer is the time to take the plunge!
THE THREE MUST HAVES FOR SPRING
You can see it in the air. Spring is here. We’re having lunch outside, sneaking in a quick walk and finding patios where we can sip cocktails and grab a bite. There’s something about spring that makes all of us want a fresh look . So before you get your perfect pedicure for the pool, here are three “Must Haves” that you’ll want to invest in this Spring!
Don’t get to the end of the season without a pair of Lace up sandals or shoes. Inspired by ballet flats, the lacy look takes the basic shoe to a new sexy level. Flats and heels with straps that tie around your ankle, are the rage this spring, giving you a modern look inspired by Paris Fashion Week. We think they look great with ripped boyfriend jeans, a loose billowy top and a Boho inspired sundress.
You’ll be a cut above the rest in a top or dress with a perfectly placed cut out. Don’t be afraid to play peek-a-boo with an effortless dress that shows a sliver of skin. We love the looks of Taylor Swift and Jennifer Lawrence in their cut out sensations. The spring trend is perfect if you want to show off toned arms or a hint of your oh-so perfect abs. The look says elegant and chic.
They are still a girl’s best friend: Jeans. Get a new pair for spring or change up the pair you love. Want a chic look? Try cuffed jeans with classic pumps. Still love skinnys? Wear them with a pair of heeled booties. We love this look with sexy flat sandals too. There’s something about cuffed jeans that offers just a little bit of glam this spring!
