Now that spring break is finally here, fashionistas are starting to comment on the swim fads that are sweeping the beaches this year! You might be surprised to hear what’s hot this year – or maybe you won’t, because we’ve been guiding you to these styles since we started looking at 2013 swimwear early this year! If you’ve been waiting for the last minute to hear what’s hot before you buy your spring break styles for the year, here’s the official early verdict from fashionistas across the Web:
The biggest 2013 runway trend that’s sweeping the beaches this spring is the rise of the sexy monokini and one-piece swimsuits. With styles like the B. Swim Prowl Back It Up Monokini Style UL104, it’s easy to see why these designs are making big waves this spring break. The sexy side cutouts with strappy detailing highlights your hips and waistline, while covering enough to add a bit of mystery. The push-up cups give you a great shape, and the v-neck is extremely flattering with great cleavage. The back is barely there, with thin straps and the strappy detailing at the waist making this a truly sexy style. No wonder it’s one of the top picks for this year’s spring break swimsuit!
It’s hard to beat a classic, and the good old string bikini remains a spring break staple. Something like the B. Swim Blaze Beach Cruiser PushUp Swimsuit Top Style U60 is a great evolution on the classic triangle bikini top – and is perfect for your spring break wardrobe. This seamless halter triangle top is made with graduated push-up pads that give you a natural-looking push – and giving you killer cleavage. The slashed contrast neck tie, adjustable backslider and custom gold hook closure add nice detailing that makes this classic look a must-have for any bikini-baring beach babe for this spring break.
Retro, High-Waist Bikini
Retro is huge this year, too! We did an article earlier this week on starlets sporting retro styles, but now it’s officially hot in trends for spring break. Retro means different things for different people and brands, so here are a couple of ways you can rock the retro look in your own unique way:
First up is the B. Swim Love Bird Colorblock Vendetta Bandeau Swimsuit Top Style U39. This bandeau bikini top is fun sort of retro throwback with a flattering and eye-catching fringe design. The signature diamond push-up cups are removable, giving you a little boost if you want it or letting you go more natural if you’re not looking for extra shaping. The side strappy details, the strappy center gore and the cute halter strap make this a fun and flirty retro-style bikini top.
Another way to go retro is with the Tara Grinna Venia Retro Styled High Waisted Skirted Swimsuit Pant Style VE-222. High-waisted bikini bottoms are becoming increasingly popular as retro styling takes the swimwear world by storm, and the ruching and the flirty skirty bottom hem flounce take this high-waisted bottom solidly into the world of fun and playful. The full back coverage is also great if you’re a little self-conscious, or if you just hate swimsuits that you’re constantly having to adjust when they creep.
