**Swimwear trends for S/S 11**

We all can't wait for the proper summer to arrive and holidays we go for. For women is not just buying the essentials but we also we want to look and feel good in what we wear. The same rule apply to swimwear! Personally, I think it's more pressure on us ladies as we always try to hide those jiggly bits we gained after winter and still look good and bang on the current trends. So to help you, here are the main swimwear trends for you to choose from when you buying a swimsuit for your holiday. Always remember to select the right style to flatter your body shape and skin tone.

Vintage style

This trend is based on 50's style - think Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield, Grace Kelly.
Designers turned this trend around into modern pieces - a high-waist here, a vintage print there - and the results can be very sexy and  will definitely show your curvy 'assets'. Those type of swimwear will be great for ladies who have a bit of belly to hide and still look great! :)

 Ruffled Bikini

Ruffled swimwear has no distinct style 'rules'. Instead we've seen it styled in a different ways for spring S/S 11. Ruffles add interesting twist to a normal plain bikini and can really flatter someone who wants to add a bit of a volume to your upper body. If you have slim/athletic body shape I would definitely go with that style!

One Shoulder Bikini

This trend been popular since 2009 but the one shoulder bikini is not the swimwear trend, but it's still a great look and definitely a way to wear it in 2011 & 2012. Ladies - it's all about the statement shoulder! For this season go with a think single shoulder strap and pick the colour contrast between the strap and the rest of the bikini. This bikini will flatter most of the body shapes (make sure you pick the right colour to complement your skin tone) and if you looking for a bold statement bikini  I would definitely go with that style.

Digital print swimwear

Digital prints are everywhere in spring / summer 2011 and this trend definitely been used by swimwear designers too. For this season, however, the style takes its queues from the sports-as-fashion street wear trend and sees the print applied to swimwear that is more functional then fashionable. It's a huge trend and if you want to look different and have an eye catching design go for this type of design. Styling tip - to lengthen the body pair a printed bikini top with a block-coloured bottom, drawing the attention upwards. Go for high cut thighs instead so as to not shorten the legs further.

**Arzu Kara - New S/S 2011 Collection**

So yes, it's been far too long since my last post and I have been told off by my very good friend so I better post something :) Well - I must say life been pretty busy recently but I would love to share some pictures from the shoot I recently had  with lovely Arzu. My last post was about me meeting the talented designer who invited me shortly after the meeting to collaborate with her on the shoot of her new S/S 2011 Collection. I was so happy! Shooting with a designer is very different to a shoot planned by yourself/photographer or a client. I saw Arzu's collection before so I was very keen on helping her with accessories and how to style her designs.
This shoot took place in April around Henley on Thames and we were so lucky with the weather - as you can see on pictures (and hey we dont get that much sun in UK - trust me!). Everything went really well and below you can see the end pictures. I had this pleasure to work with this amazing team of people:

Photographer - Mark Andrews
Designer - Arzu Kara
Make-up - Adelina Miller
Model - Roza Przeziewikowska
Styling - Justyna (Me)

All team worked so hard on the day and even though it was a long day we were all buzzing and jumping around keeping the energy level high :) Unfortunately Mark had to stay focus :) but we are so happy with the pictures and I am sure you guys will enjoy it too. Have a great week! Justyna xxx
