Beach season is just around the corner and this means it’s time to talk about some of the hottest swimwear trends for 2013. This year is all about looking effortlessly chic while on the beach. No matter what trend you go for, it’s important to pick a suit that flatters your figure and makes you feel self-confident. There have been quite a few standout trends this year when it comes to swim wear like the bandeau top, fun laser cut outs and bright bold colors. Below you’ll find a few of our favorite chic swimwear trends.

Geometric Print

Geometric prints can have a super flattering effect on the body so it’s no wonder this trend made its way into beachwear.  For a modest and figure friendly suit opt for a light color bathing suit with dark panels on the sides. This will give the illusion of a more tapered waist line and enhance the hourglass shape of the body.  If you want to opt for a skin baring look then go for a bikini with linear cut outs on the side of the bottoms, this is a super sexy look just beware of funky tan lines.


High Waist Bottoms

The high waist bottom style of swimwear is a fun nod to retro bathing suits. This look is great for ladies who are a little tummy conscious, and it’s a great way to rock a two pieces in a modest fashion. This look would be perfectly accented with a big floppy sunhat and some sexy retro cat-eye shades.


Mismatched Bikini

The mismatchedf look is not only effortless and chic, but it also gives you some room to play around with your bikini and make new and fun color and print combinations. Throw uniformity out the door and go for unique and bold pairings, this swimwear trend is almost foolproof so have fun with it.
