Rihanna Flaunts Summer’s Hottest Swimsuit Trend – Fringe Bandeaus! Be Inspired by the Latest in Beachwear!

Close your eyes and feel…the temperature instantly dropping to 20 degrees below zero! Frigid!

A simple flash to the not so distant future makes it a lot easier to appreciate the broiling heat right now, and even work up the nerve to shimmy in a new swimsuit while you can!

Swimwear options this year are far more exotic and playful than ever before. You’ll see a variety of fringe details, ethnic prints, kaleidoscopic shades, sequins, beading, geometric patterns, a shift toward three pieces, and figure flattering innovations.

And whether you’re a petite princess, curvy countess or elevated empress you’ll find the perfect style to ‘suit’ your swimwear fancies just like Rihanna!  And just a heads up, the caribbean starlet will be launching a full capsule collection with London based River Island in 2013 so you can get a piece of her universal style!
