Trends in women's swimwear
The world of women's swimwear changes with each coming year and 2012 is no different. This swimsuit season we're going to see many classic designs taken to new heights as well as some new trends all together.
When it comes to the basic colored swimsuit there are many trends that we have seen from the worlds leading swimsuit designers. On the lighter end of the color spectrum we have our oranges, yellow-greens and pinks, which have changed drastically since last season. They now exist as much lighter versions of themselves. On the other end of the spectrum there are many deep blues which are also popular this year. As is the usual in the world of women's swimwear, black is always in fashion. We have also seen quite a lot of white this season and typically it stands alone with no other colors or patters.
If you're looking for a more complex design then this season will be anything but a disappointment. Tribal and ethnic patterns are popular in many lines, as well as embroidering techniques (1 ). In 2011 the classic animal prints were available but mostly in atypical colors, recent trends are showing that the classic animal print colors are going to be more popular in the 2012 season. Although the classic animal prints will still be in style, it is the python print that looks like it will steal the show this season(2).
Crochet swimwear also seems to be a big hit for this upcoming season. The crochet design is more than just a unique style, the physical design of the piece catches the eye of the viewer and leads it away from any flaws which may or may not be there. For this reason and many more the crochet design is not just a trend but a must-have for any swimsuit collection.
Another design that shows promise for the 2012 season is ruffled swimwear(3). This ruffled look plays on the vintage swimsuits we've seen in the past that use their ruffles to accentuate certain areas of the swimsuit. The ruffled look has a lot more variety than most styles, it can easily be matched with a crochet pattern, a digital print or even a plain one color bikini. It's the versatility of this look that makes it such a popular design for this coming season.
Whether your on the conservative side and a single tone swimsuit is for you, or you're looking for the bold statement that a python print gives you are sure to be pleased with this years season. Old looks are being reinvented and new looks are coming out with a bang, whatever you're looking for the 2012 swimwear season is sure to have something for you.
