Amy Rocks 2015 Swim Trends

Posted by | September 18, 2015 | Amy Paffrath, Fashion, Projects | No Comments

Labor day has come and gone and as we say goodbye to summer, I’m looking back on my favorite swimwear trends of 2015.

This was definitely the year of maximum coverage.  Girls everywhere were wearing more fabric than ever!  Celebs embraced the less (skin) is more fad as well.  I hope these looks will stick around.

Here’s the top 3 trends I loved this summer!

Stars like Rihanna, Demi Lovato and Beyonce loved rockin’ printed one pieces this year.  My girl Soyela and I hit the beach for SUP Yoga (read more about this on A to B Style) in our Lychee versions.  They are super sexy but offered just the right amount of coverage for our active day.

The retro look is Taylor Swifts signature style, but I also spotted Gigi Hadid and Katy Perry rocking this belly friendly trend.  I gave it spin in this crisp white Nookie Beach bikini. Sheer panels and a halter neck add interesting details to this classic silhouette. I added a wrap from Swim by Chuck Handy and pink Woody’s Barcelona shades for a pop of color.

I LOVE turqouise.  These simple Meme London earrings and a matching Sterling Forever cuff are chic but pool appropriate. Easy to take off when you’re ready for a dip in the pool!

unnamed-1 CUTOUTS

Leave it to JLo to embrace this daring trend.  Cutouts were all the rage with stars like Nina Dobrev and Kourtney Kardashian.  This daring style gives the world a sneak peek at the goods so be ready for all eyes to be on you! I felt the love when I stopped by Alessandra Ambrosio’s labor day pool party.  I stepped out in this Mia Macrelle plunging one piece which also has a pretty floral/geometric print.  It’s slashed all the way up the sides. Think of it as built in gills, mermaid!

This suit is sneaky since the material is thick, it can be worn as a sexy body suit when paired with an asymmetrical maxi skirt like this one from Free People. Peach Steve Madden wedges keep it bright and cheery.  Just the spirit for a daytime party in the sun!  My gorgeous friend Kara Lusardi, who designed the banging dress she’s wearing, is the perfect arm candy.  We always have a blast!
