The hotness continues in Miami, and I don't just mean the weather. To every bikini lover's delight, the swim shows prevail. In this batch are two particularly awesome designers: Vix and Custo Barcelona. Vix is perfect for the modern gal who loves a sexy cut and graphic prints. Custo is now on my radar for Missoni-like caftans and patchwork bikinis. And Red Carter reminds us of the fabulousness a sun hat brings.
It's prime bikini time. Miami knows this as it is housing the Miami 2008 Swim shows right now. I always like to scope out the newest bathing suit styles and discover new swim designers — and I just ignore the perfectly toned bodies of the swimsuit models. It's really about the design of the clothes, I swear. Here's a batch of sizzlin' suits where prints, bold cuts and cover ups steal the show. I gotta get me one of these flowing tie dye skirts from the Cia Maritima runway — perfect for partying it up in Punta del Este.
