A special trend that is present on the red carpet this year and flawlessly transfers onto swimwear fashion is the romantic ruffle look. The flowy, airy characteristic of a ruffle gives your swimsuit 2010 a sweet-yet-sexy flair. Oscar-nominated actress Vera Farmiga (“Up in the Air”) shows the essence of this romantic trend with her red carpet gown.
Farmiga’s stunning Marchesa gown captures the essence of high fashion with an abundance of ruffles flowing diagonally down the dress. For a not so dramatic yet ruffle-themed look, we recommend the Liberty Bandeau bikini by Vix Swimwear. With a row of ruffles along the trim of the underwire swimsuit top, this piece exemplifies sophisticated chic. To top off the ruffle look, the skirted bottom shortens the layer to keep the style on trend. Also recommended if you are into the fuchsia color is the Layer Cake Tankini by Betsey Johnson Swimwear. With its parade of ruffles down the torso line this designer tankini (which can also be worn as a top) mirrors Farmiga’s look.
