The Hottest Swimwear Trends of 2012

1. Crochet

Crochet has been a hot trend for a few seasons now, and it proves to continue to be in style this summer when it comes to swimsuits! Try a basic cream/nude crochet bikini or punch it up with brights to complement the summer sun with this neon two-toned bikini from Victoria's Secret in one of two hot hues! 

2. Nautical

Get sailor sweet in one of this summer's classic nautical styles. This classic white and navy combo is flattering for every skin tone and makes finding a cover up super simple. Bonus- this trend never goes out of style! Stick with a basic bikini like this one by Vix or try a cute vintage high-waisted bottom and bandeau top bikini like this!

3. Asymmetrical One Piece

The one pieces was incredibly popular last summer, but this summer it's back with a who new twist. This one by ASOS fits the bill at just over $40. This style looks best on boyish figures or those with an even hourglass shape. (Best avoided by apple or pear shapes due to the cutouts emphasizing tummy and hips). 

4. Mixed Prints 

It's really no surprise that the print mixing trend would soon take hold of the swimsuit world. Just as with clothing, it is important to have one color unifying both pieces. In this case, navy blue makes the stripes and polka dots work regardless of the peach and beige hues in either piece. Buy the suit as a set like this one by Ondademar, or mix and match at a store like Target to save some cash! 

5. Black and White Printed

Update the classic black and white bikini by mixing it up with a fun and fresh print. This one by Seventh Wonderland is on sale for 50% off right now and adorable! Mixed prints are also trending in black and white this summer. From monokinis to bikinis, black and white looks great on everyone and there's a style to fit every body type, just have fun with it!
