Swimwear Trends in 2008/2009

Are you ready for Summer? Let's take a look at what we can expect in Swimwear trends in 2008/2009.

First lets discuss color and prints. Fuchsia is a huge craze this season as well as the jewel tones including emerald, purple and sapphire blue. Geometrics, African prints and a touch of metallic bling are all making an appearance on the international fashion shows. Of course we can not forget that nothing epitomizes poolside glamor like a classic black swimsuit.

A black halter-neck on-piece. The revival of the on-piece is chic and glamorous. While the return of the classic one-piece is evident, variations on this style including cut-outs, monokinis and stylish maillots will be gracing poolside and shorelines in a modern chic fashion. Also taking a front seat will be lower leg lines embracing a retro look in an updated way.

Who are the brands to watch out for? Well, swimwear has previously been dominated by the surf giants of the fashion world and although surf brands will always have their place, the recent acquisition of Tigerlily by surfwear giant Billabong proves that swimwear fashion is being taken more seriously.

Busy Summer is making all the right waves in Australia and seems to be hitting a chord worldwide. With the backing of Ugg boots Australia fashion agent, and a favorite with swimwear models this brand is certainly one to watch.

Losing grounds are brands such as Wicked Weasel, Malibu Strings and other micro bikini specialists. Popular in the earlier part of this decade, swimwear that leaves little to the imagination is not capturing the imagination of modern fashionistas.

So now your equipped with everything you need to know about swimwear trends for the 2008/2009 season, now all you have to do is head down to your local gym and perfect that bikini body.
