Everybody’s eagerly waiting for spring/summer to arrive to hit the beach. There’s nothing great but to lie in the sun on the beach and just relax and enjoy time. You do want to look great and sexy, so I suggest you take time and surf the internet for 2012 swimwear trends, as the new collections and styles are already in the market. Remember, each swimwear says something about the person wearing it, so make sure to get the one that really reflects your personality and style; know your body shape, know your style and know how you want to present yourself this summer. The holidays are on the way, so venture out and make a few necessary purchases, since the time has come.

The designers have already hit the runway with new collections for swimsuits, so here’s a list of what is ahead of us on swimsuit trends;
1. Vintage-inspired swimwear

2. Ruffled bikinis

3. Crotched bikinis

4. One-shoulder bikinis and monokinis

5. Swimwear with statement strapping

6. Digital print swimwear

7. Cut-away bikinis

8. Swimwear to flatter your figure

As 2011/2012 clothing and accessory trends are more influenced of the 60’s-90’s, we see a tendency of them reflecting on swimsuits and bikinis as well (no surprise about that); the one piece swimwear is a great hit, in either bold-solid colors or flirty florals, the bikinis are in nude, neutral tones, with a touch of SPF sun lotion, a giant hat and a light satin scarf, you’ll recreate the era of the 70’s in no time (as you can see not much needs to be done to get in the 2012 style).
As far as accessories go, it’s really a matter of style and preference. Mostly oversized earrings and bracelets go along with bikinis and swimwear, but as mentioned, it’s a matter of preference.
Tips to go along with; if you have a fuller figure try to embrace the vintage trend then use it to accentuate rather than try and hide your curves, try halter necks or cupped styles, and anything that brings in the waist to play to an hourglass shape. For the Pear shape / small bust use ruffles to your advantage by adding volume at the top half. If you are top heavy then use ruffles to your advantage by adding them to the bottom to balance your hips with your bust. If you have short legs then try printed bikini top with a block-colored bottom, drawing the attention upwards, avoid boy-leg bottoms.
But, remember, whether you’re full figure, or have short legs or anything, it’s all about the attitude and the confidence, so ladies be daring and make sure to buy a very gorgeous and sexy swimsuit this year, so you can rock it all the way (you’ll be surprised how many heads you’ll turn as walk on the beach: it’s all about the attitude).
