One thing that sets a bikini apart from others is the details. Whether it is a buckle, hoop, ring, metal, fabric, accent or string ties, these little touches can make an ordinary bikini look extraordinary. Cut-outs and interesting string placements can add sex appeal to your swimsuit look.

I picked this top out as an example of an edgy little touch on a bikini. It’s at the top. Do you see how the extra strings in the triangle top add an edgy look to this zebra bikini? Nice details. Note that whether you are thin as a rail or a large plus size, these details can help add sex appeal. It’s about drawing attention to an asset. And, giving a little naughty gal allure to the overall look.

When shopping for swimsuits, don’t always go for the basics. Look for a little touch on the swimsuit that adds sexy appeal to it. This top makes a small chested woman look super sexy. Where you are small, try to show skin. It gives her more shape and a more curvaceous look. Note that any time you have a cutout you need to be extra careful to wear sunscreen. Sometimes skin is showing in a sensitive place. Wear strong sunscreen to protect your skin and prevent bizarre tan lines.

Mercedes-Benz fashion week swimwear



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.

I love Marie Claire magazine as they always show a unique fashion take on fashion trends. They mix it up and combine different looks that are funky and hot, not junky. For example, check this bikini and leather jacket combination.

Leather and bikinis

Modeled by Miranda Kerr, this refreshing take on a bikini cover up is hot, hot, hot.  The solid color orange bikini combined with the edgy solid color black leather jacket makes her pop with color and stand out from the crowd.

This sexy look doesn’t come cheap. The Jacket, $4980, Jean Paul Gaultier; bikini, $320, Fendi; necklace, $112, Aurelie Bidermann; watch, $75, Timex. Bracelets, from wrist to elbow: $700, Cartier; $195, Links of London; price upon request, Sally Sohn.

I found this look on, it was featured in an article on : Surfer Swimwear Ideas and Sporty Bathing Suit Style by Marie Claire
