There were a few awesome swimsuits featured in the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2012. Every year, nearly two dozen runway shows showcase the latest trends in swimwear. Designers include Leah Madden, Paola Robba, Mara Hoffman, Norma Kamali, Benny Rosset and Lisa Burke.

Slenderizing mix and match swimsuit top and bottom

The latest trends get shown off during fashion week. For example, last year, designer Linda debuted the world’s first fully compostable bathing suit. The swimsuit shown here shows off the nice effect of mix and match. For a slender girl with a great bottom, wearing a lighter color bottom is a great way to showcase a nice buttock.

The tip for mix and match is to select the lighter color for the part of the body you want to emphasize. This is how you slenderize. If you have a great chest, choose lighter on top. If you have a great bottom, choose lighter on bottom.

Sexy beach bag

The accessories this girl has are too cool. A unique slouch bag is ten times sexier than your standard weave or basket beach bag. This looks light years better than your standard tote bag and is plenty big enough to fit your towel and clothing. A cool looking beach bag can improve your beach or poolside look tremendously. The scarf is a nice added touch. Great photo from Mercedez-Benz fashion week.

Do you have pale skin and wonder what bikini to wear for pale skin?  The experts will tell you to stick to jewel tones.  Stylists suggest deep pink, deep blue, red, emerald green, seafoam grean, and other jewel tones for fair skin.   Just like tan skin looks great with a contrast, fair skin looks great with a contrast too.  Most bikini experts don’t recommend black for fair skin, but this girl manages to pull off a cute black bikini top look in a mix match manner.

This is a tough combination when you wear a darker color bikini top and then a lighter color bottom.  If you are trying to fight fat, a darker color bottom works best.  If however, you are trying to show off a slender bottom, then going light can be very hot.  That is the situation here.  She’s showing off a slim body with the lighter color paisley bottoms. 

Black won’t look good on pale skin if it’s too expansive and covering up too much body real estate.  Here though, she pulls off the look because only the top is black and its relatively skimpy.  What I like about this bikini is that the quirky style of this sexy red-head shows through.  She looks great but its not like she’s wearing an expensive swimsuit.

The natural throw together a look and hit the beach running can be endearing.  If you are naturally beautiful, it just goes to show you that you can take a couple of old swimsuits out of the drawer and throw them together.  You can look great on any budget even one that includes recycling old swimsuits into different looks.  She’s also showing off her heart tattoo with her lighter color bottoms that draw attention.  If you are confident enough to get a tattoo you should be confident enough to show it off and that is exactly what she is doing.

Draw focus away from freckles

This girl has quite a lot of freckles and I think its actually cute that she’s drawing attention away from the freckled chest and arms and down into the creamy white portion of her skin.  Her pure white tummy looks awesome in this.  Everything sort-of zings with this look.  The red hair zings, the black contrast on fair skin triangle top zings, and the paisley bottoms zing.  Put it all together and her freckles are hardly noticeable.

Personal style is whats in style

For summer 2013, I think personal style is whats in style.  Mix and match is as popular as ever.  Girls are doing their own thing and making a statement with their swimwear that original and march to the beat of their own drum.  I love it.  Gone are the pure Hawaiian print swimsuits.  Everything is different and sporting an edge.  This adorable red-head knows how to make herself look truly eye-fetching.  

Mix and match bikini

The great thing about mix and match swimsuits is you don’t have to shop for swimwear.  Just go to your closet and pick out an old favorite bikini top.  Put it together with an old favorite bikini bottom. Voila you’re ready to hit the beach for some fun in the sun.  Oh yes anddon’t forget the sunscreen as fair skin burns skin to red rather than tans it.  Kudos to the photographer this picture is adorable.

Bikinis for pale skin



This girl rocks the fashion look by having a fierce sense of individual style. With her feminine bikini top and belted bottom, she creates her own look. She might throw two things together and she pulls it off because she is self-confident!

Confident in a bikini

This girl shows an essential fashion fact. If you have superior confidence in yourself you can rock any look you want. She is a beautiful exotic looking girl with her own mind, and her own fierce sense of style. She has tattoos, contrasted with a feminine bikini, and the hipster belt still rocks her confidence and looks sultry, sexy and hot. She looks different. She looks confident.  She looks like no one else and that makes her stand out.

Mix and match top and bottom with solid dark color bottom slenderizes

With an athletic body like hers she actually has a flattering style choice going on by mixing the hipster belted bottoms with the simple feminine triangle top. This makes the tattoos she has be toned down a bit and less tacky. Belted, plain color bikini bottoms are extremely slenderizing especially when paired with an eye fetching top (or in her case the interesting shoulder tattoo work) that draws the eyes upward. It gives her a free body lift.

A bikini looks incredible when you exude confidence wearing it

He tattoo work is obviously unique. While not a personal fan of tattoos, I am a fan of a gorgeous woman who can wear her tattoos with confidence. She is proof positive you don’t have to wear a designer swimsuit or even an expensive swimsuit to look amazing. She pulls off her look by exuding both confidence and intrigue appeal. Any man looking at her – would definitely take notice.

Unique personal style is sexy and makes a girl look fierce in a swimsuit

Being different, unique and most importantly being confident about who she is, makes this bikini girl riveting. The photographer caught a hot look here. Her necklace and casual bracelets also signal that she is her own person. Remember, confidence is key. If you exude confidence, you can rock any swimsuit or bikini in the world. What I like about this is that the woman stands out her, not the swimsuit.  A truly inspiring hipster look!
