Swimwear Trends 2013

Swimwear trends that we're already seeing for 2013:

A lot of what was just emerging in 2012 will come front and center for 2013.  Here's are some continuations that we are spotting:

High waisted bikinis - The shape is, curvy and close-fitting, accentuating the hips and waistline

Bra tops - Thin, tiny straps going over the shoulders

Lots of lacing and criss-cross straps - Graphic, visually appealing

Cheeky bottoms - Hey, if you've got the bitty bottom, then go for it.

Neon Colors - Boys + Arrows did some this year

Non-Conforming Shapes - Especially tops that are different, overlapping, criss cross, low cut, etc.

Non-Urban looks - Ethereal looks, whisps of mesh fabric, sheers, romantic, swept away look
...Think of desolated beaches far, far away...lotsa grunge

Hawaiian designers - Aloha from Acacia Swimwear, Tori Praver, Sea by Gypsy, Terra Christa

California designers - Look for more from Salt, Boys + Arrows, Cali Dreaming, Minimale Animale

Aussie designers - Anna&Boy, Kooey
