The official start of 2014 will be here before you know it. A new year allows you to start fresh and set new goals, but most importantly, it brings you one step closer to another swimsuit season! It's never too early to start looking ahead to those warmer days to come, especially since the 2014 resort collections are already pouring in to the hottest swimwear retailers around the world. For all those who want to stay ahead of the trend game, here's what you can look forward to this season.
Designers recognize a great thing when they see it, and the sexy bustier trend is back with a vengeance for 2014. Several designers have added these va-va-voom tops to their swimwear lineup, so you're sure to see a few one-piece and two-pieces bustier styles from your favorite brands. Some feature sexy corset-inspired backs while others are cut a bit longer so they can double as a crop top, but all styles will help boost you up and have you looking like a real beach bombshell.
In other design news, athletic beach-goers and those who crave more coverage and support can look forward to more sporty-chic suits and active-minded styles. Both high fashion designers and dedicated surf companies seem to be enjoying creating a larger variety of sporty-chic fashions. While some are taking to neoprene, others are simply creating more supportive athletic-style tops and generously cut boyshort bottoms that stay put and move with the wearer. In addition, rash guards are popping up everywhere in both practical and more fashionable varieties, perfect for surfing or simply covering up to and from the beach.
If you're into prints, this 2014 resort trend is right up your alley. Chevron prints and patterns are huge this season and are being featured in one-pieces, bikinis, cover-ups and accessories. Whether you enjoy basic colors and classic combinations or attention-grabbing neon shades, chevron prints are being spotted in this season's hottest resort collections. Think mod black and white chevron prints, chic crocheted chevron patterns in a rainbow of colors and neutral chevron prints with electric pops of neon.
Metallics will also be huge in 2014, regardless of the swim setting or scenario. Look forward to sexy swim styles featuring fabrics infused with lurex and all the glitz you can handle, as well as funky prints accented with metallic detailing. But for all the demure divas, you'll love classic solid swimsuits like the little black bikini (LBB) featuring metallic stitching and lining. Regardless of the style you choose, the metallic trend will have you glistening in the sun.
Flounce & Flutter
Like the aforementioned bustier trend, flounce and flutter is back and better than ever for the 2014 resort season. Instead of just a few options to choose from, seemingly every designer has at least one fluttery flounce style in their new collection. Think bandeau monokinis with flounce-trimmed necklines, fluttery trapeze tops that can double as crop tops and halter tops with fluttery draped overlays.
