Swimwear for Summer Sunshine Fun



Bathing Suit Mania



    

"Sunshine is my favorite accessory!"


Summer sunshine, sandy beaches, chaise lounge chairs, glittering pools and refreshing drinks come to mind during the opening days of summer fun. When searching for the "perfect" swimsuit, eyes glaze over, anticipation in fitting rooms becomes frantic and the stress meter runs high.   Frankly finding a swimsuit that is flattering on skin that has been kept from the sun for months is a chore that can be nerve wracking.  However, after coming home from a sun filled Mexican vacation, there is only one style that fits all body types.  The one piece swimsuit hands down is the most flattering.  And, while viewing the finale of the series  (Mad Men, AMC),  there is something so refreshingly charming and sexy about choosing the most figure enhancing silhouette from the 1950's and '60's.  And, which brand reigns supreme for this fashionista?   Drum roll please - La Blanca!


One-Piece Please!

    

But What About the Bikini?

Or course, swimwear selection is filled with many different styles that can be flattering on the female body.  There are bikinis, one-pieces with sweetheart lines or ruched bandeau one-pieces, high waist bottoms or the tankini.   As stated the women creating the most ocean waves were adorned in one piece bathing suits. Yes, bikini's can be attractive but thinness and a toned physic is imperative.  The bikinis or barely there pieces of fabric were best on the youth though the plethora of tattooed limbs detracted rather than added beauty.   Thus, for the 40 something Forever Chic Style fashionista the only silhouettes to purchase are The One-Piece and sister of the bikini - The Two-Piece Tankini!

The Classic - The One Piece


    


I.  Old Hollywood Style - The One Piece:  Glamorous and flattering on every shape.  Take this seriously.  Women donning this number will glow under the ocean or desert sunshine.  The ruching creates a slim silhouette and the hues come in sun kissed shades.   Always order two sizes higher than normal wear.

The Retro Option

    

III. The High Waist Bottoms:  Retro cool high rise bottoms cannot be forgotten.  This trend is very hot and probably best on the self confident swim babe fashionista.

Sun Protection!

    III.  The Keep Cool Cover Up: Essential to combat the UV rays against precious skin.  This fashionista suffers from an allergy to the suns UV rays, which results in red welts on the skin.  It is a frustrating occurrence.  However, the SPF shirts helps keep the sun at bay.

  Summer Ending "We cannot direct the wind. But we can adjust the sails." Aristotle Summer is winding down as the weather cools, leaves are turning into glorious hues and breathtaking flowers are slowly wilting.  You can feel the shift in the air. Embrace the pending change with anticipation for pumpkins, colors of red, gold and yellow, falling temperatures, spider webs and the end of summertime.  Once again, we long for cozy sweaters, boots, coats, scarves and apparel designated for a fall landscape. Additionally, we are gearing up again for another roller coaster autumn.  Many events, trips, world upsets, work environments and basic daily life is shifting with uncertainty.  Of course, we cannot predict the future, yet Covid remains intact.  Hopefully more will become vaccinated, which in turn, helps end the present and immediate crisis.  The virus will become endemic with perhaps less fear and instead similar to the annual flu vaccines. To put this is perspective, the Spani
