Swimsuit Season...the hottest for 2012

Swimsuit weather has approached us! Unless you are Gisele Bundchen, bathing suit season is one that most women do not look forward to. It can be so frustrating to find a style that looks cute, fits well on the top and on the bottom, and is affordable.

Most of us have our “go-to” bathing suit that we know we look good in and feel comfortable in. However, if you want to add some spice into your bathing suit collection, here are some of the hottest bathing suit styles for this season and best of all they are so affordable that you may have to try a couple of options!

Dresses that flatter the good and hide the bad

All of us have a body part, or two, or three that we wish was a little different. Whether it is having sculpted arms, a smaller waist, or defined legs, each of us have that area that we are always working on or wish was a little different. I guess as women we are always striving to perfect something about ourselves, but why not give yourself a break and let your clothes do the perfecting for you.

It is so amazing how the shape of a dress can completely change the look of a woman’s body type. Sure, you may think a dress is a dress but buying the right style of dress for your body type can make a world of difference on how you look and best of all how you feel.

For the women who wish that had more of a waist, who would like more of a bust, who have a thicker mid section, who are curvier all around, who have larger hips, or who have heavier arms, here are a list of dresses that will flatter your particular figure, rather than focus on the areas that are not your favorite.

Items that can be worn by any woman, any age, any shape

As exciting as the season’s hottest trends are, they can be equally as frustrating. Many times the styles, looks, even colors don’t always appeal to every woman’s body type, stage in their life, or even age.  Time and time again I hear women say how much they would love to wear some of the hottest trends at the time, but do not feel comfortable because of their shape or even their age.

Spring 2012 has undoubtedly offered a variety of styles and looks. Some of the bright colors and silhouettes can be intimidating. For the women of all ages, shapes, sizes, for the moms, for the working women, and for the trendsetters- here are some of the hottest trends for spring that  look appropriate and good on anyone.

Carefree, Comfortable, and Stylish in one!

There really cannot be anything better than looking absolutely fabulous and being absolutely comfortable. The two do not always go hand in hand. However, with this season's hottest styles including flowy long skirts, maxi dresses, soft lace tops, and cute wedges and flat sandals, this is definitely possible. These comfortable and cute styles are definite staple items and can be mixed and matched with anything. Take a look at some of these cute options below.
