Retro-inspired swimwear is on-trend this summer season

Summer fashions span a broad spectrum; from flirty dresses to prim skirts, all things maxi to mini denim cut-offs and lightweight, loose-fitting tees; warm weather is an ideal time for experimenting with color, cut, and fabric. It is also perfect for ditching the dresses and skirts, shorts and shirts, in lieu of summer’s trendiest item: the swimsuit. From classic black to playful prints, here is a map to the season’s most stylin’ swimwear.

Taylor Swift captures "Old Hollywood" glamour in this retro two-piece

Lady in Black: A black bathing suit is both chic and timeless. Year after year, this particular style of swimsuit survives the tidal waves of change and washes ashore looking better than ever. Whether in the form of a one-piece, tankini, or bikini, black is a flattering option for every woman.

Rockin’ Retro: Taking a page from the glory days of “Old Hollywood” and the glamorous beach babes of yore, the retro swimsuit is a far cry from the tacky styles popularized by the cast of Jersey Shore. Add a pair of oversized shades and glossy red nail polish and you’ll be all the makings of a Hollywood leading lady.

Color Me Stylin’: Bright colors are the talk of the moment; from the color of your nails to your handbag, this trend has taken the reigns for Summer 2012. Its influence in swimwear is no exception; bold colors are playful, vivacious, and youthful. Mix and match different tops and bottoms for a one-of-a-kind look.

Tribal Print Bikini by Madewell

Prints, Please: From the tribal to vintage-inspired, prints make for sensational swimwear. Just as with brights, change up your suit by mixing solid-colored bottoms with a printed counterpart, and vice versa. Your swimsuit finesse will certainly impress on the beach scene this summer.

We’d love to know: what swimwear will you be sporting this season?
