Stylewise Swimsuit TrendsAs I write this column, the sunshine and breeze beckon from outside my window, and I’m half-tempted to put this aside for a couple more hours and make my way to the community pool, book in hand. Alas, the call of duty is a few degrees louder than the whine of procrastination, so I’m going to find the happy medium in this situation and talk about something the awesome weather has us all thinking about: swimwear!

If you’re like me, you’ve probably gone through January and February trying to rid yourself of the extra layer of fat you acquired over Christmas (or the whole of last year). And now that beach body season draws incredibly close, I’m guessing you’re ready to get started on the quest for a fresh-to-death swimsuit. I’ve always felt that shopping for a new suit is like searching for a great dress: it’s a long, arduous, and sometimes off-putting task (you have to strip off all your clothes!), but once you’ve zeroed in on the winning piece, you feel skinnier, more confident, and dare I say, happier than ever.

Still, you can’t wear the same one forever—unless you’ve purchased your go-to swimsuit in all the colors and prints imaginable. In which case, kudos on your foresight! But if not, it’s always a fun exercise to venture into the latest swimsuit trends and see what other options can accommodate your particular body shape and fashion taste. After all, wet wear plays just as big a part in personal style as shirts, pants, and jackets—it just happens to show more skin!

Here are five fab updates to try in the swimsuit department, from ravishing ruffles to asymmetrical silhouettes to major, major vintage inspiration. I can’t wait to see these styles in local stores so I can grab one apiece and speed off to the seaside! See you there?
