Bathing Suit trends for 2012.

August is one of the hottest months of the year and swim season is at it’s peak. If you’ve been lagging on finding that perfect bathing suit, or you’re just looking for more inspirational ideas to add to your wardrobe, check out some of this summer’s hottest trends:

Animal print coverups:
Animal prints are hot, hot, hot.Buy one this season and add some roar to your wardrobe.

Accentuate your skin with a sheer cool blue or a shiny hot pink. Incorporating a metallic in your summer swimsuit wardrobe can give you a look that’s sexy and chic.

When first introducing the concept, one might associate a high-waisted bikini as a conservative piece fit for a granny. However Mara Hoffman (first picture) rocks this look and shows the world how a high waist can be elegant and sophisticated.

Cool Cutouts
Want to look more unique than your friends? Try a sexy strapless cutout or an intricate crochet-it will give your body the shape and flair that it longs for. But be warned: these cutouts are strictly for those who can handle being eye-candy 😉
