The annual star-studded Met Gala took place in New York City last night. From movie stars to models, everyone who was anyone seemed to make an appearance. With the theme of last night’s event being “Punk: Chaos to Couture”, we were sure to get an eyeful of some interesting ensembles. While some stars decided to tame down the “punk” theme, others went all out. Either way, we loved looking at some of the recurring trends from last night and thinking about how to carry those over to our designer swimwear.
One of our favorite looks of the night had to have been Miranda Kerr. While it’s true, Kerr looks amazing in just about anything she wears, she really pulled off her Michael Kors dress with ease and sophistication. The cutout trend seems to be huge for this current season. Whether you choose to rock that trend with a monokini like Love Bound or Drive Me Wild, you’ll be sure to nail it. Another trend Kerr is implying? The bandeau! Bandeau’s layered under cutout t-shirts or blouses are a great way to add some extra color or sparkle to your look. Fun bandeau‘s like Paradise and Heartless 2013 are great options to use when layering your look.
Another favorite of ours was Jessica Alba, who wore a gorgeous Tory Burch dress. The dress was leather and featured smaller, feminine cutouts as well as two larger, and more bold cutouts. We loved the overall effect of the pattern, similar to the Sipping Pretty bikini and monokini. Leather is also huge for this season, which is one of the many reasons we love the leather accents on luxury swimwear such as Drive Me Wild, Crazy For You, and Call On Me.
Being a punk theme, the color of choice seemed to be black (for obvious reasons). Black is a great, classic color. Jennifer Lawrence’s dress took classic to the next level. Her Christian Dior dress paid great homage to Old Hollywood starlets, while the color added to the “punk” feel. Black is always a great option, especially when it comes to your designer swimwear. Choices like Pretty Young Thing and Truly, Madly, Deeply are great staples to have in your wardrobe.
