Whether you're going on a fabulous vacation or just relaxing poolside in your hometown, let's face it: Spring break has finally arrived. Whatever your plans may be, soak up the sun and look great doing it by trying one of these hot swimwear trends:
When shopping for bathing suits this season, try channeling Marilyn Monroe. Vintage-inspired pieces are in, as they show off sexy curves but are still discrete. Go for a one-piece with a retro feel. Also, a simple sweetheart neckline is flirty - but in a modest way.
Suitable for bikini-wearers of all sizes, this look shows off all types of waistlines and highlights curves. Plus, not only do high-waisted bottoms cover tummies and hide on-the-beach insecurities - they're also a trend among Hollywood celebrities such as Taylor Swift and Katy Perry.
Swimwear is meant to be fun. Choose a bathing suit with unique, figure-flattering details.
Ruffles are great for females with a smaller chest. This fun, feminine feature creates the impression of a more voluminous upper half and a better-proportioned body.
For those with a long frame, try cutouts, which break up the body in the middle and make the body appear more symmetrical.
Furthermore, fun embellishments such as beading, bows and zippers can spice up swimwear, and tops and bottoms with unconventional straps are another way to take the look to the next level. If you're really feeling daring, try a one-shoulder suit - but beware of funny tan lines.
If you're going for a printed suit, make sure you choose something that reflects your personality. It's as simple as this: If you'd classify your style as edgy, choose an edgy print. If you like to keep it simple, choose a solid-colored suit. Also, try mixing solid bottoms with a printed top. This combo elongates the body by drawing attention upward and away from the lower half.
Above all, sunscreen is the best accessory for any piece of swimwear. Stay safe by protecting yourself in the sun this spring break, and look great doing it.
