FASHION SHOWS: Miami Fashion Week Swimwear 2011

Miami Fashion Week Swimwear fashion showsWhile we are talking about swimwear, Real Style Network wanted to bring you the latest in fashion shows from Mercedes-Benz Miami Fashion Week Swim 2011. Miami Fashion Week brings together the hottest swimwear designers to show off next year’s collections and swimwear fashion trendsSwimwear designers including Beach Bunny, Ed Hardy, True Religion and Mara Hoffman all held fashion shows this week. Here are some of the trends we are seeing from the Miami Fashion Week swimwear fashion shows:

The colour palette is across the board. The only real rule is to keep it bright and bold. Patterns of all sorts are popular in swimwear. If you can’t have a print on your bathing suit, get it in your cover up. Coverups being shown are loose and flowing. Tribal and retro prints on maxi dresses and tunics were the style of choice in the fashion shows.

Swimwear trends are still the smaller the better. Many of the suits shown in the fashion shows had plunging necklines and cutouts. Some swimwear designers chose to add more delicate details like lace, ruffles and intricate cutouts.

The accessory of choice in the fashion shows is gold. Whether your swimsuit has gold hardwear or you accessorize with gold jewelry, gold is the colour of next season.

Here are some fashion show videos of the stand out shows:
