If you love to shop, can’t get enough bathing suits, in some cases one for every time you lay next to the pool, you know exactly what Miami Swim Week is.
Think of it as fashion week for everything that is summertime swim oriented, and a mainstay to let women of all shapes, sizes and ages know exactly what is considered hot for this upcoming summer.
But when you think of summer, women’s fashion and swim suits, you think about less being more, but that isn’t exactly the temperament this year. Yes, bathing suits aren’t like they were a hundred years ago when one piece was the first, last and only piece of solving the puzzle that is your summertime, by the pool, wardrobe.
This year, this season, the women’s bathing suit sends out vibes that are equal parts stylish and sexy, but you can’t underestimate vintage being the vixen that we all want this summer.
Take for instance the high waisted bathing suit bottom, almost forgotten or harkening back to a day when your grandmother once visited the local swimming pool in her neighborhood, but that high waist in the form of a swimsuit gets high praise from a fashion stand point this summer and scorched the earth at Miami Swim Week, 2016. Don’t misunderstand, however, that the high waisted bikini briefs are being paired with a second piece (this isn’t your grand mother’s one piece by any means) in the form of a bikini top and also a sheer top, camisole type cover to keep your shoulders from the sunburn for a moment until you reveal what is one of the hotter styles in women’s fashion this summer season.
In keeping with the throwback style, some bathing suits still are showing some skin but with a different take on that aforementioned one piece: the cut outs. Bathing suits are full body and beautiful with the sides cut out to show off that midsection in sections, namely the obliques that give you a glimpse at that tight, toned stomach but still leaves a lot to the imagination.
From a color standpoint, you have to love that the orange and yellows are back in what can be described as an extension of spring time colors being whisked from one season to another, particularly the orange which is a slice of heaven paired with a darker blue color that says University of Florida and would even make the polarizing Tim Tebow blush and wish he was back in college for spring break.
Bathing suits will forever scream summer, but this year’s take is vintage and a fresh take on an older style that still scores big with women.
