Choosing the right swim suit is a challenge. It’s one almost as daunting as what should I wear and we are faced with that question each day. This summer make sure you are prepared to soak up the sun looking stylish and hot.
Q. What is the hottest trend in swimwear for 2010?
A. Color, color and more color!
Make smart choices for your body type. Swimwear has evolved over the years and there is an endless array of choices to cover all shapes, sizes and self-confidence levels.
If you’re looking to add a little oomph try a bandeau top or increase feminine details in your chosen look with ruffles, which enhance a smaller frame. To pull off this frilly trend without looking like you’re in summer camp, opt for ruffles on the top or bottom. Don’t try this look from head to toe.
Another great choice is the cut out suit. This style is extremely popular because it gives you the power to show some skin while feeling comfortable doing so. These figure flattering suits can range on the modest meter from a one shoulder to a daring deep V-cut.
The choices in swimsuit wear are endless and it’s nearly impossible to make the wrong one. Selections that feature saturated jewel tones, pretty pastels, 80′s neon, metallic, are all in fashion for this summer. You can also never go wrong with classic colors such as black, white and navy. Do your homework prior to diving into a color catastrophe to explore which color combinations work best with your hair and skin tone in a natural lighting. Try adding playful accessories like jewelry, a floppy hat or printed beach bag as another way to bring color into your look.

Aloha Fashionistas! Spring is finally here. All of our great finds for the season are hitting our floor as we speak. One item you must add to your wardrobe this season is…drum roll please…..A ROMPER. I know it doesn’t sound exciting, especially if you remember the ones your mom use to wear. (Am I dating myself?) Any who, you are sure to turn heads in this little number. They are easy to throw on over a swimsuit or to pair with roman sandals and head out for a day of shopping. The romper is a nice update to a dress. You can find them strapless, with ruffles or ties.
Moving on to our next must have, denim shorts. This season, shorts have gone through a much needed update; new washes, be-dazzles, and lots of stitching. They are short and cut off…but that’s ok …you been working hard on those legs. We have some great shorts starting at $19.50 (that is not a typo!)
Speaking of getting physical, have you guys checked out the Roxy Athletix line? It’s Roxy’s new line of fitness wear, made from great fabrics with all the technology. Great shorts and bras for running or yoga. The boys might just howl at you in down-dog pose…
My head is spinning..that’s it for now…time to meditate….OMMMM!
Aloha Fashionistas! Recently, Nada Manley of the Daytona Beach News Journal covered some new trends in The Style File article “Leggings a Top Look for Spring“. She is exactly on point for what is up and coming in regards to Leggings and Denim!
I just got back from NYC market week. I scouted the city to find the hot must haves for the season. First and for most, throw away those skinny jeans that you can’t eat all day so you can get into them at night. You know the ones you have to lie on your bed to get them zipped up. Say goodbye to them and say “aloha” to JEGGINS (jean leggings). These babies are so comfortable and hot you might not ever put on a real pair of jeans again. They come in different washes with all the bells and whistles of jeans (not literally bells and whistles) just pockets and maybe some side zips.
Pair them with great boots or super sexy heels and there will be no worries of the fashion police issuing you a citation. Wear a flowy top with bat wing or butterfly sleeves or maybe step back to 1984 with an off the shoulder top. Work it girl! Don’t be afraid of the 80′s fashion look, it is a must do… But no big hair please…unless you’re planning to make it a nest for homeless birds.
Anywho, it’s getting late, a girl needs her beauty sleep. Remember fashion is an expression of your true self! So own it!
Lots of love and fashion,
