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.

Ruffle Bikini

Ruffled bikinis aren’t just for kids anymore!  Check out AnnaLynne McCord in this cute pink ruffled bikini.  This string bikini features layers of ruffles that actually look good, much to my surprise. Though I don’t think I’d ever wear one because that’s not my style, I think ruffle bikinis, if designed properly, can be cool to wear.  Done right, you won’t look childish or dowdy while frolicking in the surf.  Try one on and see for yourself and get a second opinion if you’re not sure!

Bandage Bikini

Monday, May 24th, 2010

Last year, Herve Leger started adding swimwear to their collection and since then, celebs like Beyonce and Lindsay Lohan have been snapped wearing those now famous designer bandages.  For those who don’t know, Herve Leger is the high end line within the BCBG Max Azria Group.  The iconic bandage dresses are seen pretty much every year at red carpet events on celebrities like Halle Berry, Victoria Beckham, Mischa Barton, Blake Lively, Rihanna and Lucy Liu. And now the bandages have transitioned to swimwear and the styles are…..well, unique to say the least.  Now, not all the designs are this dramatic and asymmetrical but for those independent, quirky types, this might be a cool suit to rock at your next beach party.  What are your thoughts on this designer’s swimwear??  I think if you could figure out how to put it on, it could be very cool.

The White Bikini

Monday, April 26th, 2010

What do Raquel Welch and Ursula Andress have in common?  Aside from being the red hot sex symbols of their time, they are both well known for their practically iconic white bikinis.  There’s something about these curvaceous and tan beauties in a classic white bikini that stood out and out lasted any other style of the time.  Over the years, the white bikini has proven to be a classic and is still a style that lasts to this day.  Nowadays it may be a halter top, maybe it’s crocheted, perhaps there’s a little decorative accent somewhere.   Although little details change here and there, there’s no mistaking the white bikini.  It’s undoubtedly a trend that’s here to stay.
