Selena Gomez Celebrates Her Birthday in Style

 

Selena Gomez is, quite clearly, one of our favorite up-and-comers. Much like our previous post about young starlet Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez also starred in the racy “Spring Breakers” movie. The movie seemed to be a cry to be taken seriously, maturity-wise, as the star seems to be moving further and further from her Disney days of past. We love the evolved Selena. Her style has also matured- showcasing a sophisticated side of the star that we are finally beginning to see. Most recently, the star has been celebrating her 21st birthday this past week. We would love to honor Selena’s birthday by featuring some of our favorite trends we’ve spotted on her and in turn, show you how to get the look using your luxury swimwear.

 

 

Within the last four months or so, Selena has been spotted in one trend almost weekly- the black and white trend. Black and white color-blocking has been huge, as we spotted at the Cannes Film Festival on stars such as Jennifer Lawrence, the MTV Movie Awards, and much more. Selena is a big fan of this trend based on the amount of times she’s spotted in it. We wanted to narrow down the field just a bit, and feature her glam all-white look. It’s simple, yet remains fashionable with the gold hardware featured on her top. Best of all, the star’s golden tan seems to radiate off of the white color. Much like Selena’s outfit, the Truly, Madly, Deeply bikini in white from Lady Lux features glam gold hardware to balance out what would otherwise be a more basic white suit.

 

 

We’re starting to feel as though we talk about chevron A LOT. Well, there’s obviously as reason, as star’s are wearing the trend left and right for summer! We saw this look of Selena’s and fell in love with the boho spin she put on her chevron print. Similarly, Call On Me and Crazy For You are both great bikinis with a bit of some boho inspiration, while maintaining the great designer swimwear qualities like the detailed hardware.

 

 

Our last look of Selena’s is a great option if you’re looking for a youthful bikini to stand out in. Tie-dye is not just for hippies anymore, as proven by not only Selena, but also by this great swimsuit from Lady Lux. The Still The One bikini features bright colors, unlike Selena, which not only brightens up the look, but adds to the youthful appeal that the suit has.

 

Overall, Selena has blossomed into a hot, young star and we can’t wait to see how not only her style will keep evolving, but also her music and movies!

Vanessa Hudgens Stuns in Swimwear

 

Vanessa Hudgens is another one of those young Hollywood starlets that’s slowly making the transformation from teenie-bopper to A-lister. Most recently, she starred in the hit movie “Spring Breakers” alongside other Hollywood A-listers such as James Franco, Ashley Benson, and Selena Gomez. While it’s true the movie was controversial and not entirely well-received, it broke the starlet through from teen-actress to mature, adult star. The starlet spends nearly the entire movie in a bikini and we think it’s pretty safe to say; her body is to die for. We’ve re-capped a few of her best beach looks and show you how to get the look with your own designer swimwear.

 

 

As we’ve mentioned before, super-feminine floral bikinis are definitely in for this season. Vanessa looks super cute in this pink and black number. The underwire adds an extra touch of femininity that the basic triangle bikini might not offer. A similar feminine option from Lady Lux would be More Than A Feeling. It too features an underwire which can add much needed support if you’re larger chested, as well as add some extra padding to those of you who are smaller chested. The feminine lace that runs along the top bust is an added factor as far as femininity, as well as the cute bows on both the top and bottom.

 

 

Vanessa definitely has a very bohemian sense of style in her day-to-day clothes and that look is obviously transferred over to her luxury swimwear, as seen here. She’s spotted here in a bohemian, geometric print. Our only wish? We wish she would have popped just a little more color into her look here. Lady Lux offers two great bohemian graphic prints for bikinis that are also colorful- Crazy For You and Call On Me. Both make great options if you’re looking to head to a local music festival, or if you just want to catch some rays out by the pool.

 

 

Nautical suits were, by far, one of the biggest trends of the season. With multiple “patriotic” holidays, it seemed girls couldn’t get enough of the stars and stripes when it came down to their swimwear- Vanessa included. The best part about your nautical swimwear? It doesn’t have to be reserved for holidays! Nautical looks are great year-round and are classics, so they never fall out of style. Ready Or Naut is a great option for a nautical bikini- and it touches back on the femininity that was also so popular this season. The ruffles and bows make this the perfect “girly girl” bikini. Best of all? The V-cut bottoms are super flattering!

Celebrity Monokini Madness

 

Monokini’s have been around and popular for years. It seems that lately, however, they have really exploded onto the scene with a vast popularity that we haven’t seen yet from them. Celebrities have been spotted around the world in the popular cut, so we decided to show you how to get a few of their looks using your own luxury swimwear.

 

 

Reality star Audrina Patridge was recently spotted in Vegas in a sexy, basic monokini. What we love from her look? The sexy cutouts, the plunging V-neck, and the glamorous hardware on the swimwear. For a similar look, opt for Love Bound. The fun black/khaki print remains a basic, without being too basic. As far as a plunging V-neck, Love Bound also has you covered with an even deeper cut. Hardware is featured in between the bust and at the hips- a black bamboo piece, which adds a sense of glam to this designer swimwear.

 

 

Sophia Vergara is, no doubt, one of the Hollywood queens of sex appeal. The Latin actress looks drop dead gorgeous in just about everything she puts on- and most of the time she chooses ultra-sexy slinky dresses. Her swimwear is no different. Here, Sophia is spotted in a super-sexy black monokini. Lady Luxs version of her sexy monokini would be Sipping Pretty- our most popular (as well as our sexiest) monokini. Similarly to Sophia’s, there’s glamorous hardware along the center stomach, as well as some added hardware to the hips. This swimsuit will push everything up to where it needs to be, making you look your absolute best when you hit the beach.

 

 

Our last monokini look is a more youthful, brighter option for those of you who aren’t willing to commit to the ultra-sexy looks. Rihanna chose to wear her monokini in a bright aqua color. Still complete with sexy cutouts as well as a plunging V-neck, her suit still has interest while remaining more youthful. For a bright option from Lady Lux, you could try the Heaven Can’t Wait monokini. The fun lavender color is not only perfect for summer, it will also bounce off your golden tan perfectly. While Rihanna’s suit has a trendy fringe as interest on the monokini, the fun animal print on the Lady Lux version is an added interest as well. Complete with the basic white hardware at the hips and shoulders, you’ll be all ready to stop traffic at the pool!

Miami Swim Week- Going Strong

 

As we head into the 3rd official day of Miami Swim Week, things could not be going better! We are loving showing off the new line of designer swimwear and can’t wait to share it with all of our valued customers and fans! Best of all, the city of Miami Beach could not be a more beautiful location- especially for showing off our luxury swimwear. The city is inspiring us to put together some swimwear looks for those of you out there who are visiting Miami, live in Miami, or just want a Miami-inspired look!

 

 

As we mentioned before, color-blocking is huge right now. We figured we would take another new spin on the trend with the Melt Away bikini. The bikini is along the more casual side of looks, but still chic- so we paired it with a breezy turquoise maxi dress. The dress is sheer enough to still get a glimpse of the gorgeous swimwear you’ve layered underneath. Pair the turquoise maxi with coral accessories like the bright coral wedges (perfect for the beach), earrings, and belt. When it comes to your makeup- keep it simple in order to not distract from your beautiful outfit. Breezy, long beach curls and a nude gloss polish up your look. Don’t forget the coral nail polish for that extra special finishing touch!

 

 

Another hard-to-ignore factor of Miami Beach is its beautiful people, dressed in some of the sexiest clothing around. So, our second look is definitely for those of you who want to bring out some Latin sex-appeal in your look like in the city of Miami Beach. Sipping Pretty is one of Lady Lux Swimwear‘s sexiest cuts, and also one of the most popular styles. Pair it with a white skirt (to keep it looking beach-ready) which features a sexy high-low hemline. Bring the heat with some red-hot accessories like the red wedges, red tote, and (of course) red nail polish. Keep the look glam with gold jewelry in order to match the beautiful gold hardware on the suit. As far as beauty goes- don’t be afraid to wear a little more makeup with this look. After all, this kind of girl is not one to be doing laps in the pool… So, put on some dramatic false lashes and pile on the extensions for the ultimate glam, sexy look- perfect for Miami Beach.

 

Is anyone else in Miami Beach right now? We would love to see what beach looks you’ve pulled together using your designer swimwear! Send us some pics and we’ll re-post them!

Miami Swim Show Trend Report

 

The talk of the industry this time of year is centered around one thing- the annual Miami Swim Show. A fashion trade show for everything related to swimwear, beaches, pools, and everything that falls in between those categories. It’s always fun to see what new styles luxury swimwear companies like Lady Lux come out with, but we like to predict ahead of time what we will see at the show starting Saturday, and what will make a presence at the end of the year as well as for 2014…

 

 

Youthful, bright prints have definitely started to make their mark for the summer of 2013, but we don’t see an end to this trend. Specifically speaking, striped patterns such as chevron really took off- and we’re pretty sure they’ll be sticking around for the 2014 collections due to their overwhelming popularity. In both the Call On Me as well as Crazy For You bikinis, the chevron prints have been kicked up a notch with trendy, bright colors like purple and aqua. Similarly, Ready Or Naut features a youthful striped print. With nautical inspiration, this suit was a huge hit around national holidays such as Memorial Day and Fourth of July. Is it possible nautical striped suits will be even bigger in 2014? We definitely think so!

 

 

Running along the same concept as the colorful striped prints, powerful florals also took off in late spring/early summer of this year. The ever-feminine print took a unique twist when paired with black, like in More Than A Feeling. The print turned out to be one of our best sellers! It’ll be interesting to see what other colored florals will be huge for 2014, as we’re sure this popular style print is here to stay. Other favorites from 2013 include Floral Fantasy and Secret Escape.

 

 

Last (but definitely not least), we think sexy cutout monokinis are going to be HUGE again for 2014. This style swimwear took off in 2013 with the introduction of super-sexy cuts like the Sipping Pretty monokini, one of our best selling suits. Customers seemed to like the variation of not only cuts, but colors, such as the Heaven Can’t Wait monokini, also one of our best-sellers. With options like these, the Drive Me Wild monokini, and many more- we’re sure we’ll be seeing more sexy monokinis for 2014 all around, and we can’t wait to see what fun cuts and colors will be available!

 

What designer swimwear trends were your favorite for 2013? What trends do you look forward to hopefully seeing for 2014? We hope you’re as excited as we are for the new year and new swimwear!
