Swimwear season is fast approaching. Now is the time to get a jump the hot trends in swimsuits. One of these trends are the stylish and fun animal prints of the season. So if you love animal prints, then this is your season. So ladies get wet and wild this summer with animal print swimwear.
Get Trendy in Wild Feline Prints
Feline prints are in abundance this season. A lot of jungle-inspired swimwear features a mix of jungle flora and these prints. Which jungle cat prints do you look best in? Are you ready to rock a cheetah print swimsuit? What about tiger stripes? Perhaps a snow leopard's marking are more your style? Whatever you choose you will be on-trend poolside and at the beach.
Reptilian Prints are Dangerously Sexy
Reptilian prints are hot in swimwear for summer. The most popular is snakeskin. While some more expensive suits may actually use authentic snakeskin, many swimsuits will use a simulated print. Some of the sexiest snakeskin prints come in a metallic finish that look great when worn with a pair of jeans and matching snakeskin pumps.
Zebra Prints are Fun and Flirty
Those black and white stripes turn ordinary swimsuits into stylish swimwear. I am fond of the zebra print tankinis I've spotted lately. There equally attractive bikini and one-piece swimsuits in this print as well.
Mixed Prints and Bright Colors
Animal prints in swimwear have upped the style ante for summer 2012. Animal prints are being mixed with tribal, floral and graphic prints in swimwear. Also be on the look out for brightly colored animal prints. There are a lot of zebra and snakeskin prints that come vibrant shades of purple, blue and red along with the more traditional colors.
