Be original! A unique swimsuit coverup like this hoodie

A lightweight hoodie like this one is a great idea for a unique swimsuit coverup! Shown is a Theory hoodie, Heidi Klein bikini, sequins skirt from Top Shop, necklace by Pippa Small for Matches Fashion, ring from Harvey Nichols, ring from Priyank for Trilogy Stores, and thread bracelets ad black beads by Scosha from Kabikit.  The stunning result, a cool hoodie bikini look! 

This is a great style look right here.  The cool gray hoodie looks awesome against the shimmer brown bikini and the necklaces and jewelry look fantastic too.  This is such a hip look., and something that you would not think of combining.  Next time you see a cool little hoodie it may be the perfect accessory for that sexy bikini. Try it out! 

Silky fabrics and textures give dimension

This picture shows us that adding rich colors to your bikini style will give you great dimension and contrast.  The silky soft hoodie gives a three-dimensional effect and the result is edgy and luxurious at the same time. 

Notice that jewel tones really add deep brilliance to the look.  What to learn here, is that vibrant jewel tones and textures materials are extremely flattering. The silky gray hoodie with the silky shimmer brown bikini top looks funky and ritzy all of the same time.  Great look by the photograph and stylists.  Check out the Gaurdian for more.

This fierce photograph of Solange Knowles shows that the individual stepping out and making a statement about her swimwear choices is … in! Her statement swimsuit is unique, eclectic and totally different than what you would typically see on a celebrity.

Swim suits that show your individuality are in style for summer 2013

This fashion statement is indicative of an overall trend in swimwear that is moving away from the barely there micro bikinis. Sarah Fones recently wrote about this in a New York Post article titled Buh-Bye Bikini. The point was, that the two piece bikini was not the only weapon in a fashionistas arsenal.

Celebrities like Kate Moss, Stephanie Seymour, Rihanna, Solange and others are wearing more demure mallots on their vacations. In the article, a top designer Malia Mills credits this trend to the individual and sites such as Instagram and Pinterest that highlight unique and eclectic style choices. The thong is out, and individuality is in.

One piece swimsuit fashion trend 2013


I recently stumbled across a write up on eFashion Trend about 2012 fashion trends.  In it they featured the brand H & M as carrying cute swimsuit styles from 2012.  The low cost Swedish based fashion brand is among many clothing and apparel stores that feature a restricted line of swimsuits.  They have so many shoppers that they are able to interest them in smaller swimsuit selections where cute styles have been hand picked just for the store.  Many of the styles are in fact cute. 

If you aren’t good at picking out swimwear you can look at the smaller selections in the popular clothing stores.  You won’t get the same number of suits to choose from but you can get the current glamour and fashion trend styles in such shops.  Be forewarned though that clothing stores carrying swimsuits are often for the younger crowd and they assume that you have an adorable figure already.  If you’ve got the figure for it, you can grab an inexpensive suit that follows the fashion trends from the trendy clothing stores. 

If your figure is more challenged however, these swimsuits may be a flimsy no go.  For a women needing real body shaping swimwear she might want to stick with the larger selection swimsuit stores or department stores with more choices for her such as Macy’s or Nordstrom. If you have anything to hide or that needs target specific flattering it is rare that you’d be able to find a good fit in a limited selection. Go where you have more swimsuits to try on.  Check out the limited selection for trend ideas but shop where there is a bigger selection of choices.

This adorable style from H & M illustrates a few key fashion trends.  For one thing, the bandeau style top is back in style, as long as it gives appropriate coverage which this one does.  Men love this style and it lets you eliminate tan lines.  Sometimes these bandeau styles have removable straps so you can swim in them without feeling insecure.  Just don’t lose the straps.  Along with the H & M bandeau style, these bikini bottoms make another fashion statement.  Bikini bottoms with more coverage are back in style with a vengence.  Skimpy brazilian cut swimsuit bottoms and revealing string tie bottoms look hot in Sports Illustrated and Maxim magazine but leave very little to the imagination.  A bottom with ample coverage like this one shown, is more appropriate and even men like more coverage.  So remember, don’t let it all hang out in the swimsuit. 

If your figure rocks you can grab a preselected, trendy suit from the local clothing store at a steep discount.  If your figure has flaws and you need more body shaping style then don’t bother to try on these swimsuits.  Just check them out for ideas as stores like H & M preselect cute styles.  Then, head to a swim store with a larger selection and look for something similar with more ample coverage, stronger material, and that has the adequate support and lining needed for your particular body.
