Submitted by on June 1, 2010 – 9:47 am3 Comments

Swimwear seems to take more and more cues from current apparel trends. Summer 2010 is full of fresh bikini’s and one-pieces that reflect popular looks, from fringe to stud details.

We’ve counted down the 10 top women’s swimwear trends for the season — see below:

10. Wild Animal Prints

The animals themselves may not be sexy, but when their spots and stripes are placed on a sweet bikini like this, you better watch out!

9.  Bold Florals

We’re not talking those boring lifeless florals on your grandma’s sun dress. Opt for large, bright colored prints for an edgier look.

8.  Striking Neon

Neons remain a hit this summer.  Go on girl, electrify that beach.

7. Rock Chic

Black Silver Stud and Chain Swimsuit by Hot Topic

Studs, chains, spikes—bring it on. The popular rock-star look has been translated into swimwear, and it looks lovely.

6. Fringe Fun

Fringe Benefits Stardust by L* Space

We’ve seen fringe detail surface on everything from shoes to handbags to apparel.  The trend works nicely on swimwear, too, as you can see.

5. Flashy Metallics

Shiny Zipper Front Body Suit by American Apparel

After metallic leggings were all the rage, the look has been adapted into swimwear. This look will ensure your a*s doesn’t go unnoticed.

4. Feminine Ruffles

Electric Floral Ruffled Bikini by Shoshanna

No longer is this cute detail limited to little girls’ swimwear. Ruffles add a flirty flair to your grown and sexy one- and two-pieces.

3. Trippy Tie Dye

Tie-dye prints are emerging all over the place this summer, so why leave your swimsuit out?

2. Vibrant Tribal Prints

Tribal Affair Cut Out One Piece by Guess

We’ve seen sharp tribal prints in leggings, tees and more. By the looks of it, these eye-catching shapes are not going anywhere anytime soon.

1. The Sexy Cut-Out One Piece

And the number one place goes to this flattering and expanding breed of swimsuits—the cut-out one piece. The beauty is that this type of piece often works for women who are not comfortable rocking two pieces. The cut-out one piece often covers all the right areas, leaving just enough skin showing. The peek-a-boo look is super sexy, and the designs that brands are coming out with are cool alternatives to the traditional mallot.
