Swimwear and style specialists from share their picks for the top swimsuit trends for this summer. From ruffles to retro, the beach is its own catwalk this season!
June 15, 2011 - PRLog -- What’s the best way to get attention when you’re at the pool or beach? Wear one of this season’s hottest swimsuit styles! Swimwear and style specialists from have gathered their picks for the top swimsuit trends for this summer.

Monokini – This swimsuit trend (a one-piece suit with the sides and most of the front cut out so it covers about as much as a bikini) emerged last year and is gaining more steam in 2011. Monokinis are a statement swimwear piece, perfect for ultra lounge pools, luxury resorts and hotels and European beaches.

Ruffles – This is a major trend for everything, from clothes to lingerie and, yes, swimwear. Ruffles not only add an air of playfulness and femininity, they can also cover up certain “problem areas”. A ruffle along a bikini top can make a small bust look fuller. A ruffled skirt can disguise a lack of hips. A vertical ruffle down the front of a one-piece can create a slimming appearance.

Retro/vintage inspired pieces – From high-waisted bottoms to halter-tie tops to polka-dotted prints, swimwear styles popular in the 40s and 50s are getting an updated look for Summer 2011. The pieces are demure yet fun and sophisticated.

Metallic sheen – It’s one thing to wear an eye-catching color, but it’s even better when that color is paired with a metallic finish that gives your swimsuit a bit of shine. Along with traditional metallic colors – gold, silver, bronze –new metallic colors, such as turquoise, yellow and coral, are heating up as well.
