Trend Alert! The pinup look is back in style. It looks great on dresses, dressy tops, and swimwear. Which makes the underwire bikini so relevant to the trend. Reminiscent of the 50s centerfold, the style is almost synonymous with push up underwire tops.
Now that pinup swimwear has swung back to center stage, designers are creating styles that incorporate the look with ruffles, removable straps, and sexy prints. A style to look at if you’re thinking contemporary pinup is the Layer Cake Underwire by Betsey Johnson Swimwear. This delicious frosting inspired number features three of the top trends for 2010 swimwear: ruffles, underwire, and the color fuchsia.
A great thing about this bikini is that the top features a couple of look options with the double straps. The style allows a gal to wear the top as an ‘off the shoulder’ look or a more conventional strap top. The straps can stack up on top of each other to make the ruffles the emphasis on the neckline. This flirty top can be paired with any of the Layer Cake bottom options, whether the ruffle skirty or the Layer Cake string bottom. Pushing up the girls while looking fashionable and swim-ready? Gotta love that.
