Swimwear Trends for Spring and Summer 2015

Swimwear is definitely considered rave appropriate gear during the sweltering summer months.

What with all of the music festivals, camping trips and pool parties, there will be ample time to rock a bikini or one piece. Even though it’s basically a tiny strip of cloth that barely covers your unmentionables, bathing suits can be notoriously difficult to shop for. We’ve scoped out four current trend in swimwear for the spring and summer of 2015.

All Black

The all black look extends to swimwear in warm weather months. Since black tends to make skin look paler, make sure you have either a tan or some red tinted lip balm.
