Fun in the sun.

Bathing suit trends have changed a lot in the past few years. Before, they were just cute pieces of clothing we put on quickly to jump into the pool or go to the beach. Now, they have become statement pieces and have nothing simple about them. Even the most straightforward pieces have twists and details that make them unique and elegant. From regular triangle, halter tops and side tie bottoms to bandeaus, strapless and high waists, everything became a little sexier and riskier. Retro and one piece have become much more popular and the beach has become a runway. Bellow is a list of the most fashionable swimsuit trends right now.

One piece & High waist:

1.  Anthropologie "Color-Pop Maillot one piece swimsuit":  Retro! Very fashionable and colorful which gives a little playful look to it.

2. Oscar de la Renta "Deep-V one piece swimsuit":  Romantic, yet sexy, with some see through details and a bow to accentuate the low v cut.

3. Zimmerman "Swim banded floral one piece swimsuit":  Chic, elegant and sophisticated - enough said!

4. Urban Outfitters "Balconette Bikini":  High waist bottom for more coverage and an underwire top imitating a bra in a beautiful olive/army green color.

5. J. Crew "Retro dot underwire bikini":  Polka dots are always in! Bow details turn this piece into a more romantic high waist.

6. Michael Kors "High Waist abstract bikini":  Elegant high waist with a black and white abstract print, so chic!

Bikini & Two piece:

1. Asos "Gold foil animal bikini":  Gold and shinny - very daring!

2. Juicy Couture "Lurex strip and chain bikini":  Nautical blue and white stripes are always in, with a chain detail to give it a little twist.

3. J.Crew "Jersey Lomellina V-cut halter bikini":  V cut halter tops are popular now and this pastel color is gorgeous.

4. Chloe "Scallop edge bandeau bikini": It is all about scallop edges! Cute and romantic.

5. Mouille Chloe "Multi Frill bikini":  One shoulder has been popular for a while now, and with some ruffles you have a perfect bikini.

6. Marc by Marc Jacobs "Slider top and side bow bikini":  Bows bows bows! Always!
