Hey everyone! Today I have a guest post from Susan, blogger at Beauty and the Beach for InStyle Swimwear
Spring break is almost here, which means it’s time to start stocking up on chic designer swimwear! La Petite Fashionista and InStyleSwimwear.com have teamed up to fill you in on the hottest trends for the 2011 swim season.
Tie-dye is no longer reserved for the hippies and free love devotees. Designer swimwear featuring bold tie-dye prints are totally chic for 2011. Whether you prefer classic curled patterns or subtle ombre prints, get ready to spread the peace and love in tie-dye swimsuits.
Vix2. Retro-Inspired Swimwear
It seems as if fashion keeps going back in time! For spring/summer 2011, 50s-inspired retro swimsuits are all the rage. Think sweetheart necklines, high-waisted bikinis and pinup style one-piece swimsuits. With this designer swimwear trend, you’ll look classic and chic.
Seafolly3. Nudes & Subdued Hues
In terms of color trends, say goodbye to last year’s purples and citrusy limons. For the 2011 swim season, snag your favorite swimwear styles in soft corals, subdued limes and of course golden flesh-toned hue
4. Animal Prints
In the world of designer swimwear, animal prints are always in style. But for S/S11, instead of your typical leopard and zebra printed swimsuits, let your animal instincts loose in python prints, fierce tiger prints and even crocodile-inspired prints!
Get your hands on these styles and more, all available at InStyleSwimwear.com.
What designer swimwear style will you be rockin’ this summer?
