Color blocking is super hot right now, and this luscious two-tone purple Color Block Bandeau bikini by TeenyB Bikini Couture makes it easy to see why so many love it.  The alternating shades of purple in this bikini are just right, and the crossover top’s flattering effect on the bust line is a quality other bandeaus often lack.  It is paired up with a flirty Boy Short bottom in matching color block style that nicely shows off your backside.  The combination of these two pieces accentuates your curves in all the right ways.  TeenyB has this available in sea green and white, too!  Get in on the color block craze with this Color Block Twisted Bandeau bikini in either color combination and be the talk of the beach.

Asymmetric Swimwear

Monday, December 13th, 2010

The one-shoulder and off-center looks in fashion are also found in the world of swimwear. For those who enjoy less conventional styles, asymmetric swimwear are popular sellers. For bikini tops, there are single-shoulder bandeaus and halter tops. As for the bottoms, instead of seeing trims on both sides, the embellishments can be found off to one side. Asymmetric one-piece suits can also be found and they offer serious style as well.

Layered Bikini

Monday, November 15th, 2010

The concept of a layered bikini can seem weird. After all, why would you want to wear more than necessary when you’re at the beach? I’m sure the designers aren’t actually creating suits with more than one layer, but instead are creating suits with that affect. Like with layering tops, a layered bikini creates a unique dimension

Swimwear with some fabric missing in areas is a big trend this year. These cut-out suits are adding a lot of style by simply subtracting material. Some styles are symmetric while others are not. Some have extra detailing and embellishments while others strive to be understated. These unique looks are definitely stunners and easily stand out against a sea of bikinis.

Lacy Bikini

Monday, August 16th, 2010

There seems to be a growing trend of merging lingerie with swimwear. Plenty of thong bikinis, convertible tops and boy short styles abound on the beachwear scene now so it’s not too surprising that lace is making its appearance as well. Some celebs have been spotted at the beach in these lacy pieces and sometimes these bikinis cause a double-take. If you didn’t know better, you’d think someone was just walking around in a lacy bra and underwear, and I suppose therein lies the sex appeal.

Pucker Bikini Bottoms

The puckered stitching going down the back of these bottoms may look a bit strange at first, but then you realize just how much they’re showing off your butt.  That little bit of detail helps to give your butt a rounder look and, as an added bonus, helps to get rid of the sagging effect that happens when you step out from the water.  The puckering creates a cheeky look without show any extra skin, which to me is rather flirty.

Pleated Retro Bikini

Monday, July 5th, 2010

At first glance, this ultra feminine bikini could pass for lingerie.  With the sensual looking fabric and the flirty frills anyone seen out at the beach in this would be getting plenty of double takes.  The halter top features many micro pleats that help to add dimension and enhance smaller chests.  The ruffles and pleats on the bottom are retro, sexy and flirtatious at the same time.  The added crystal and metal details add just the right amount of shine to the bikini as well.  The overall affect is seductive like lingerie but still stylish for the beach.

Lace Up Bikini

Monday, June 21st, 2010

Check out the latest in string bikinis: the lace up!  I was pleasantly surprised when I saw this new look, especially when I heard it was by Jessica Simpson.  I think the lace up detail on the bottoms is super cute and could be a style that proves to be very popular.  It’s definitely something that I would wear because while I like the string bikini, I’m always wary of the ties coming undone.  Even if I double knot them, I’m still kind of paranoid.  But with a lace up style, the chances of your bottoms unraveling are definitely minimized but you still get the look of the string tie.  Plus I think the extra bit of skin that’s exposed under the lace up bit is very flirty.  I’d definitely give this look a go.

Tan-Through Bikini

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

The tan-through bikini has been around for a while – I think I first saw it in a Sky Mall magazine a few years back.  These swimsuits use special fabric that lets the sun’s rays shine through leaving you with zero tan lines.  Genius right??  Well, even though the idea is great and addresses a key problem that comes with wearing bikinis the designs still leave a LOT to be desired and this particular company only makes them in animal prints.  Why can’t you make something way more cute and stylish?!  Maybe we just have to sit tight and wait, but whenever they do come up with some sweet designs and you do get one, don’t forget the sunscreen: You WILL have to apply EVERYWHERE!

Bottle Opener Bikini

Thursday, May 27th, 2010

Have you ever gone to the beach with a bunch of friends, brought a cooler of beers and once you got settled into the sand you suddenly realized that you forgot to bring a bottle opener??  Well if you have, then you can rest easy knowing that there’s a bikini out there that does double duty as both swimwear and beverage opener.  This new bikini style has a built in bottle cap opener at the center of the halter top.  It might be kind of tricky to use since there’s no seemingly comfortable way to grip it, but if you forgot to bring a proper one then I wouldn’t be complaining.  It seems like bottle cap openers are being built into all kinds of clothing.  I’ve seen them on the bottoms of flip flops, belt buckles and now they’ve transitioned into the world of bikinis.  I suppose it was only a matter of time.
