Swimsuit season 2013

Sadly, swimsuit season is nearing its end for the year (for those of us in New England at least) as we quickly approach back-to-school and winding down vacations. ┬áThis doesn’t meant we still can’t enjoy the new styles and silhouettes of bathing suits for 2013.

Jason Wu bring basic blocking up to a sexy neckline with crisscrossed straps in his Resort 2014 line.

Herve Leger, as usual, takes strappy sexing to a new level with his steel grey cut-out bandage swimsuit that would look lovely by the swank pool but rather inefficient for an actual swim.

MKL Collective, available on Karmaloop, goes modern retro with a zip bustier and high waist bottom 50’s style bikini.

Finally, check out Maaji swimwear for daring and delicate prints of feminine florals juxtaposed with intricate byzantine patterning in two-piece, maillot and cut-out styles.
