Whether you are ready or not, skin is in. The days have grown longer, the sun has come out to play, and the skirts have gotten shorter! Runways have been filled with swimwear to wet the appetite of any eager water enthusiast.

Each season that we enter boasts a strong statement, and the start of spring is no different. With months of excess layers in fabric and long sleeves covering the arms, designers have taken a dramatic turn to the basics; the basics of the body that is. Get ready to live in your bathing suit this season!

Designers have been busy creating look after exciting look with minimal amounts of fabric. The runways have been filled with bright, neon colors, floral patterns, edgy patterns, and classic black and white looks. Packed with a wide variation of styles, there is a look for the coastal chick, the lake lady, and the back yard bombshell.

Towards the end of the fall season, bright colors were beginning to creep into accessories like bags, clutches, jewelry, and pumps. Now that spring is here, brights are no longer the supporting role. Vibrant and bold statements are stepping out to take center stage. Whether you are playing beach volleyball or sunning on the beach, don’t be afraid to step outside the box wit a loud, fun color. This eye-catching craze will lend toward endless possibilities for you this swimwear season!

Skin and short hemlines are must-haves for the spring season, but that doesn’t mean that the level of classiness has been compromised. This season’s runway is packed full of a classic pair: black and white. Tastefully, this look creates an apparent contrast and look you should crave! Available to you will be classy bikinis, edgy one pieces, and a combination of the two if you please! Keep in mind that black and white suits will always be a classic and tasteful choice.

Need a little something more than a two color palette? Well, you are in luck! This swimwear season has so much to offer those that walk on the wild side. Also apparent on the runway are bold, edgy patterns. This trend isn’t reserved for catwalks and trunk shows! It begs to be taken to the beach and put in the spotlight.

If you are looking for a style that is softer and a bit more feminine, then look no further. Floral suits were blooming on the runway as well. This style can incorporate the edginess of a pattern, a beautiful color, with a twist of sophisticated femininity. This is also another classic choice for the season.

This season boasts a color and style for everyone out there. Even if you aren’t looking forward to the thought of actually being in a bikini, you can look forward to the vast array of combinations that have been created for you this season. Grab your sunscreen, your beach towel, and let your skin enjoy being center stage!
