Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim
by Carmen Ondonez
Last week, Miami took center stage for the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim. I got an up-close and personal look at some of latest trends we’ll be seeing for 2013–high-waisted bottoms, sexy cutouts and embellished bikini tops. But for those of us not wanting to wait until next year to rock these trends, here’s how you can take these runway looks from the beach to everyday wear.
Black and white was all over the runway from designers such as Dorit to Red Carter. There’s something just so elegant and chic about this color combo. This David’s Bridal strapless bodice dress is the perfect way to get this trend without the 100-degree weather.
It wouldn’t be swim week in Miami without some glitz and glamour–and the swimwear from White Sands Australia definitely brought it. If you’re looking to add some shine to your next get together, then check out this all-over sequin blouson dress—it’s oh so fab!
Embellished necklines were all the rage at swim week, like this one from Cote d’Or. To recreate the look, opt for this one-shouldered number from David’s Bridal. It’s sophisticated, yet sexy and the best part is you don’t have to worry about accessorizing.
I’m a big fan of this turquoise one-shoulder bathing suit from ANK. It definitely makes any tan pop. This gorgeous short sleeve taffeta gown is a great way to get the trend from the beach to your next event.
