We took a dip into the swim trends shaking up the beach scene in ’09, and came out with some looks that are sure to make 007 want to dive right in.
DR. NO LINES
Your strappy summer dresses will thank you for rocking this flirty trend. The sun is all over the new strapless bandeau cuts this season–leaving you sans shoulder strap tan lines just in time for your senior prom photos. It’s a tribute to the bombshell style that’s managed to make a smoking comeback every decade since the 1940’s. Think Chili Williams’ LIFE magazine pin-up, or Christine Brinkley’s famous SI Swimsuit Cover. This time around the classic gets a twist, literally. The twisted front bandeau injects an extra element of 3D form to the basic silhouette, giving it a slightly edgier appearance without taking away from the sexy classic style.

LIVE AND LET DYE
From frocks to socks, we’re seeing tie-dye, ditsy florals and everything retro dominating the fashion scene. So it’s no surprise to see the groovy prints taking over swimwear in true Woodstock-style fashion. The free-spited styles are made for the sun, giving off girly, earthy vibes that flow with the rays.

LICENSE TO THRILL
Eye-catching neon has recently rehabilitated from its days limelighting on fanny packs and scrunchies. Sponsoring its recovery, Animal Print teamed up to help rennovate its reputation. Now neon is back in a bigger way than a Stones reunion tour. We couldn’t be more proud of the two for their popular comeback.
