Summer is almost here and we all know what that means - it's time to go shopping for cute swimwear if you haven't started already! I've scoured the top swimsuits retailers and found the best of the best for any price range and budget. From bikinis to one-pieces, here is your ultimate guide to the top five hottest must-have bathing suit trends for summer '07.
- Bold Prints
One of Spring 2007's hottest trends was big, bold, printed patterns on absolutely everything. This 70's-inspired trend is going to continue for Summer 2007 in the form of swimwear. Go for paisley prints, plaid, and the brightest colors you can handle to rock this trend.
- Eyelet and Crochet
Eyelet lace has been a popular trend this spring, and the super girly fabric is going to stay hot for summer. Romantic bikinis with lace and crochet accents in cool colors like white, blue, and green are classy and stylish choices for the beach or pool.
- Horizontal Stripes
This sporty bathing suit trend is a spin off from the nautical clothing we saw all spring. Horizontal stripes are very flattering on most body types (unlike their vertical counterparts), and the striped bikinis this season look great in most all colors and widths.
- Polka Dots
Yes, this summer you will be totally in style if you wear an itsy-bitsy teeny-weeny yellow polka dot bikini. Or a green polka dot bikini. Or blue. The best ways to wear this trend: choose any mix of classic black and white, or get a bright candy-colored bikini with white polka dots.
- Sexy One-Pieces and Monokinis
Shakira and Beyonce are to blame for this sexy new trend, which was first seen in their video for "Beautiful Liar." It just goes to show that you don't need a bikini to look hot at the beach. Cut out one-pieces and "monokinis" are great options if you want to show some skin without revealing too much.
