ready to go swimming?

hot bikini girl....

As the weather warms up, we begin to dream of fun spring and summer plans. Though poolside barbecues and weekend jaunts to the beach are exciting to think about, it means swimsuit shopping inevitably is in the near future.

For most of us, this is not a shopping trip we look forward to, but this trend report should calm some nerves: Itty-bitty bikinis and barely-there monokinis have fallen to the wayside. The classic one-piece has never been so chic and flattering.

Look for maillots that have been stylishly updated with feminine ruffles, glamorous one-strap silhouettes and sleek, plunging necklines. Here are a few of our favorite looks of the season.

Slimming secret

Color-block patterns are on trend for the season, but they're also visually slimming.

Eyes are drawn to lighter colors, so a suit like this is ideal for camouflaging hips - attention is directed upward and away from the darker lower half.

Gottex "Harmony" bandeau swimsuit (with removable straps), $148 at Dillard's, and thread-wrapped bangles, $3 each at Estilo.

TIP: You can count on a sweetheart-shaped neckline to create or enhance curves.
