Splash: 2010 Swimsuits
No time for scrambling to the gym to carve off those extra inches. The heat is on! But don’t worry. Don’t break a sweat. I got your back. Whether you, like supermodel and Victoria’s Secret siren Naomi Campbell, choose to work out with gyrotonics or you’re into brisk power walks around the neighborhood like me, get ready to shed the clothes. Make a splash this season with color, style and whimsy. Sip your favorite poolside refreshment while showing off those sexy curves.
From the nostalgia-inspired ruffle bikini by Jean Paul Gaultier to the divine daisy print, rainbow-colored vintage swim wear of the ’50s, these suits have been masterfully crafted to show off and create those flattering feminine lines. Skillfully positioned darts and bias cut patterns place the right attention in the right places — if you know what I mean. Skin in or skin out, wet or dry, you’ll turn heads and make the fabulous fashion list. Oh, and don’t forget your SPF 30. You’ll need it, because these swimsuits are sizzling and oh-so-cool.
