Summer time is not only the time to hit the beach in your favorite swimsuit, it's also when we explore all of the new swimwear trends to come for the next year. We have traveled from Paris to Miami and are headed to New York in just another week to see what our favorite designers have in store for us. From what we have seen so far 2015 is going to be a really exciting year for swimwear! Paris and Miami may be very different cities but the one thing that stayed consistent amongst the two were the swimwear trends. We are seeing lots of rich, bold colors such as deep plums, rich reds, slate, emerald, navy, and shades of gray. We are also seeing many vibrant prints, such as animal prints and other eye-catching prints that really pop on a white background.
High waisted bikini bottoms look like they are here to stay (at least one more year); most every designer we saw had at least one high waisted style in their collections. One pieces are also going to be a big hit for the younger crowd yet again this year, with updated styles such as cutouts and plunging necklines. We saw many Brazilian cut bottoms and barely there suits walk down the runway in Miami, but we think those are best suited for the South Beach scene. There were also many surf styles shown such as patterned long sleeved rash guards that were paired with matching bottoms. Neoprene fabrics were everywhere as well as luxurious Italian reversible fabrics. Needless to say we can't wait to share what we have selected for our store for 2015, so be sure to visit us soon so you can be one of the first to sport these fun new trends!
Paris and Miami may be two very different cities but we had such a great time visiting each one! We wanted to share with you a few moments from each of our trips.
