Swimsuit Savvy: Bold Color Trend & Slimming Torso Tips

Swimsuit Savvy: Bold Color Trend & Slimming Torso Tips

{Colour Magic by Charmline}

Happy Wednesday!  This week it’s all about color.  Bold color is part of multiple 2012 swimwear trends including color-blocking, colored animal prints and colorful geometric-inspired patterns.  Designers have reinvented classic swimwear styles by infusing bright pops of color into them.  Not only are these swimwear styles fresh, but many also help create the illusion of a slimmer torso.

  • Look for color-block swimwear styles that feature dark, solid colors around the torso and bold contrasting colors up top or along the trim—this has a slimming and figure-flattering effect
  • Swimsuits featuring colorful designs and patterns can also create the illusion of a slimmer waistline.  Look for styles with bold, colorful designs in a curved, vertical pattern
  • Finally~ any swimwear style with built-in tummy control or ruching will help suck you in and make your midsection look fab.  Choose those featuring a bold pop of color to look totally on-trend!
