Back in the old days, there was a time when swim suits were just swim suits. One piece, plain, basic colors or black, and round neck are some of the adjectives to describe them. Then somehow designers became aware that women still need to be fashionable when going to the beach. After all, people spend more time lurking, hanging out, or enjoying themselves by the shore than in the water (right?). Thus, the multitude of fabulous prints and cuts were born. In recent years, one piece yet sexy swim suits boomed. It was also matched with exotic and metallic colors. This year, Vogue tells us that flirty swim suits are HOOOOT!!! Check these out.
