Gone are the days of sack dresses and rubber flowers for proper ladies at the beach. This summer, swimwear mirrors top trends from the runway. Poko Pano uses color blocking for bold effect and Lisa Vogel uses watercolor patterns for a sophisticated look in one piece bathing suits.
Cover-ups are designed to be worn out of the pool right into chic soirees. The big summer item of maxi-dresses are also designed to complement the smallest bikinis. Designer Mara Hoffman rocks this trend in multiple silhouettes.
For the true beach bunny, there are those suits that were never meant to get wet. Aqua di Lara's collection from the Miami runway, contained constructed and embellished swimwear that took its cues from the sexiest evening looks up North. Sequins, corset styling and metallic patterns make these suits perfect for a poolside gala.
So when you're heading for a body of water this season, don't leave your fashion sensibilities indoors. There is a designer and suit for every trend you follow!
