When swimwear designers showcased their latest Cruise ’15 collections in July in Miami Beach, several key trends stood out. Look for everything from laser-cut details, activewear silhouettes and edgy leather to color trends such as yellow, gray, and pastel shades of pink and blue.
Cruise Watch: Sports-Minded
Swim designers have added plenty of sporty silhouettes such as track jackets, shorts, leggings and drawstring pants to complement the swimsuits.
Cruise Watch: Neutral Zone
Designers turn to neutral shades of tan, khaki, ochre and sand to set off bright prints, ditsy florals and pops of contrast trim.
Cruise Watch: Looks Like Leather
Leather looks add a sexy edginess to bikinis, monokinis and maillots.
Cruise Watch: Mad About Saffron
Swim designers are mad about shades of yellow to add a warm, sunny touch to bikinis, one-pieces and coverups.
Cruise Watch: Pretty Pastels
The palette may be pale, but the suits are high-impact as swim designers reach for the candy-colored shades.
Cruise Watch: Fringe & Feathers
Look for fringed styles and feather detailing to add a touch of the exotic to swim styles.
Cruise Watch: Laser-Cut Details
From lacy looks to modern geometrics, laser-cut details add a sexy surface interest to swimwear.
Cruise Watch: Shades of Gray
Designers offer plenty of sophisticated gray shades from metallic silvers to pale smoky shades to deep charcoals.
