The Swim Cut

Who made this years cut? Well we can start by taking look at the latest styles from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week swim 2011 . Yesterday marked the official end to a very successful week that offered a sneak peak at next summers in style swim styles.

So many designers….. so many suits… the cuts, the prices!  OH MY! The endless plethora of paths to next summers swim suite leaves consumers with abundance of options. That being said you must remember that just as the appropriate interview attire, or acceptable Sunday best, there is an unspoken swimsuit conduct style suited for every venue and each different venture. Will you be frolicking on the roof of the Gansevoort, surfing in Hermosa Beach, or wakeboarding at lake Powell (this cut may cause some problems with that bandeaux)? But TAKE NOTE; do not sacrifice sexy for your grandmas flowered bloomers. When wakeboarding and surfing I bring along a pair of board shorts or a rash guard to keep what’s underneath on. There will always those offending few who commit the swim suit fashion faux-pas, but be mindful and consider where you suit needs to stay on or come off, but all the while, remain runway worthy.

This may call for some research and no better way than to view the latest swim styles from the 2011 Mercedes-Benz Miami Fashion Week. For the sixth year in a row the South Beach, Florida presented top designers in swim and resort wear and those that are up and coming, parties, celebs, and of course those tan and tones models.

The week was kicked off by Los Angeles-based designer Trina Turk, who made her debut appearance this year with the eponymous collection, Trina Turk Swim & Spa 2011. Turk’s show included her signature bright and bold prints, Acapulco Gold, and Casablanca were on everything from plunging halter-top suits to bejeweled bikinis to mens’s breifs and flowy maxi dresses featuring gold hardware inspired by vintage baubles. See several of her look below. Don’t worry I will soon share some of my favorite swim styles and designers with you (that will stay on while you are taking off, the wake that is).
