Diane Von Furstenburg vinatage two-piece. The first big swimwear trend of 2011 is vintage pin-up. This DVF ones totally reminds me of the orginal Barbie from 1959! A '50s-style swimsuit flatters a curvy figure.
Barbie in 1959. She even has beach accessories, I love it!
Christian Dior sunglasses. Cat-eye frames are the perfect compliment to a vintage beach look.

Elizabeth Taylor in a ruffled bikini. Tres chic!
The other big trend for beachwear that I LOVE is a very glamorous rich-lady look. Michael Kors did this best. This look often features leather trimmings, gold hardward, animal prints (espeically snakeskin, if you want to be bang-on trend for 2011) and of course, huge sunglasses.
Michael Kors spring 2011 print ad. Love the leather detailing on the one-piece.
Python, one of the biggest trend for spring, carrying through into fall, is an easy way to look super-glam. One shoulder maillot by Michael Kors.
Michael Kors does the bikini version. Love this!
Vix leopard print bikini. I own this one, and it comes with a detachable halter strap. I love the ruffles on the top and the turqouise detail.
A glam beach look requires a big hat. This striped Prada hat does the trick.
