After the chill in the air has past everyone is ready for spring and summer. Waves are crashing all around; sand between your toes and the sun shining down. That’s right it is time to find the perfect swimsuit. Retro is trending all around, prints, colors and style lines from past decades. High waisted two piece swimsuits of the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s are making a come back and the one piece swimsuit is rising high on the tides.

Aqua Bendita had bright bold Latino inspired colors and military details trotting down his runway. Bendita has been featured in Sports Illustrated, Vogue, Bazaar, Maxim and worn by many celebrities. Eres presented simple clean luxurious designs with plenty of desire and luxe. The Eres brand is owned by Chanel and was purchased in 1996.

During 2012 Vera Wang was photographed by Bazaar at her home pool wearing Eres. The 2013 Eres ad campaign has a clean simplistic background, retro neutral colored swimwear with a few pop colored solid swimsuits and Elizabeth Taylor inspired hairstyle.

This kick back works! I want to run out and purchase an Eres swimsuit for summer.

The high waisted two piece and one piece swimsuit can look great on anyone. Graceful lines that enhance curves on a curvy woman and help bring out curves on less curvy women. These modernized swimsuits that have a classic vintage look add instant glam. One pieces with ruching and ruffle detail bring out a soft feminine essence.

While daring asymmetrical one shoulder swimsuits and cut out suits have an adventurous touch for the bolder woman. Channel your enter pin up or actresses and hit the sandy beaches in style this summer.

Let’s take notes from past leading ladies by styling which ever swimsuit you choose by adding big oversized glasses, fire engine red lip stick and a white button down cover up. Let’s not forget the two most important beach accessories, to keeping young, a “big hat” and  “sunscreen” to keep you looking fantastic for many years to come.
