With the depths of winter upon us, we look to the future for a little ray of hope (or moreover a little ray of sunshine) and for spring 2009 we have plenty of variety to look forward to. British fashion trends are spreading to the swimwear catwalks of LA and are heavily inspired by the coquettish charms of Brit-model, Agyness Deyn.
Swimwear designers have gone back to basics for spring 2009 with simple twists on classic styles; ranging from high-waisted bikinis to cut-out silhouette swimsuits. Teamed with oversized shirts, and 80’s inspired blazers and dickie-bows, this trend might not be ideal for the beach but the catwalks of LA were telling its own tale of Winters 2008 androgynous trend and doing so in a sexy, sultry way.
Amidst the age-old spring/summer trends of ethereal, fairy-tale, dresses that evoke modern-day femininity is ‘borrowed-from-the-boys’; a swimwear trend that finally adds a bit of spice to an otherwise femininely-focused season. Refreshing, elegant and modern, androgyny is trend that transcends time and buying a classically cut piece of swimwear can do the same. Plan ahead, shop around, and take time to try-on. Take this trend from the catwalk; (leave the blazer in the wardrobe to team with shorts for drinks after a day at the beach) look for oversized shirts in relaxed white cotton, a sure-fire way to keep beautiful swimwear looking eternally stylish.
