Great Looking Swimsuit
Look in the mirror in just your underwear and assess yourself frankly. Which of these describe you best?

Shoulders, hips and waist about the same size. Not much of a waist -- boyish figure

Narrow shoulders wide hips -- pear shaped

Wide shoulders with medium or large breasts, wide hips, small waist -- hourglass

Wide shoulders, narrow hips -- top heavy

Large breasts, narrow hips -- busty and top heavy

Large breasts, ample hips and a tummy -- curvy

You can only wear clothes sized XL or larger -- plus sized

Once you know which category you are in, pick the swimwear that flatters that body type and you'll look your best during swimsuit season.

Boyish figure
If you are concerned about looking like a boy in your swimsuit, go all out feminine with frills and pretty prints. Ruffles add volume. Worn along your bust and at your hips, they give the illusion of curves. Pretty things up with string bikinis and girly prints. If you've got a cleavage, show it off with a plunging neckline. You'd look less like a boy if you show enough cleavage. Avoid bandeau tops and boy shorts.

Pear shaped body
So you've got hips.. Too large hips for your liking. Actually, curvy hips and thighs are in. You can show them off, or if you are still self conscious, you can minimize them. String bikini bottoms, tie sides or details at the sides of your bikini bottoms would make the most of your shapely bottom. If you want to draw attention away from your bottom, then dark bikini thongs would do the trick. Or you could wear a one piece swimsuit with a plunging front to draw attention upwards to your face and cleavage and away from your hips. Avoid boyshorts or very high cut bottoms as these would not flatter you. If you are wearing a bikini, pick a light top and a dark bottom to balance your figure.

Hourglass figure
An hourglass figure? You don't really need help with swimwear with a figure like yours. Still, you can mess up your look if you wear ill-fitting swimwear or a bikini top or swimwear top that doesn't provide enough support for your breasts if yours are heavy. As long as you get enough support and the fit is right, swimsuit season is your season. Wear a bright bikini or a black maillot or a really teeny printed bikini. These are classics that you can get away with.

Top heavy swimsuits
If you're busty, show off your cleavage in a one piece swimsuit with a plunging neckline. The ideal bikini for you would be one with a halter top. More than anything, you need support. Here's more about how to pick busty swimwear that flatter your body shape best.
You can widen your hips with boy shorts or a colorful bottom.

Curvy figures and plus sizes
If your tummy is a problem, wear a one-piece swimsuit that has a very high lycra content. Miraclesuits are your friend. Wear those swimsuits to take 10lb off visually. They'd hold in your tummy. If your tummy is not an issue, then go for a bikini. Just make sure the bikini top supports you well with wide enough straps or underwire support and go for the lower-rise bottoms.

Things on Strings

Things on Strings –Fasionrat
A lot of the time we think fashion is only what goes on in shops. However, a great deal of what ends up as cool really starts with a handful of random tripperkids discovering something fun.
Fashion rarely begins in a marketing meeting. Fashion just happens. It’s fun. It’s silly. And that spirit of irreverence and experimentation (as opposed to the simple excess of the great marketing machine) is what makes Things on Strings so appealing. IT is as it sounds; Take a thing, add string; wear. Done

Spring Trends 2010

Hot pants & boy shorts
If ever there was a time to hit the gym, it's this Spring. Hemlines have crept up to shorter than short; in fact reaching the negative. Hot pants, boy shorts, and tap pants are all variations on this shorter-than-short style, which in many cases reveal more than just one's legs. Click to read more about the hot pants trend.

In a culture as simultaneously ancient and modern as Japan’s, it is not entirely surprising to see people amid the suited throngs of business folk wearing the traditional yukuta whilst surrounded by modern Tokyo’s intense neon glow. Yukata have been donned for thousands of years in Japan, getting their start as an after-bath wrap for members of the aristocracy and eventually evolving into a comfortable summer-worn style, as suitable for a day perusing the markets as a casual night on the town. The more widely familiar term kimono refers to the style preferable in winter.

New York City’s reputation as the fashion capital of North America rests on more than world-class shopping. New York is, and always has been, the working centre of the fashion industry in North America—the place where next year’s fashions are created and reported on by fashion pros inside the city’s design studios and fashion magazines. Now some of those fashion insiders are sharing their unique access to the inner workings of the fashion industry with select shoppers

Over the next few weeks I will be posting guides on where to shop around the world so come back and see whats new.

Looking for a one-stop shop for an authentic suede-fringe vest that shimmied to the strains of Santana during the Summer of Love, an asymmetrical Halston original that glittered on the dance floor at Studio 54, or a one-of-a-kind flapper dress from the Roaring ‘20s? In Miami, you need look no further than C. Madeleine’s, a 10,000-square foot high-end vintage clothing emporium where not only movie, TV, and music superstars, but also the professionals who are paid to dress them, shop for well-preserved fashions from as far back as the late 1800s and as recent as only a couple of seasons ago
