It’s too hot for clothes. What are Austin’s summer swim wear trends for 2010? [PICTURES]

2010 June 23

So when its too hot in Austin to wear clothes, what do you do to stay cool?

Hidden jewel of a location on the greenbelt

Some friends and I headed to the Greenbelt this past weekend to soak up some rays and while we were there I was  impressed with some of the swim styles -

Are leopard prints on steroids making a come back this season?

Swim trunk alternative, the jort

Spots, spots everywhere!

While fashion magazines are touting one-pieces with interesting cutouts and lots of floral designs with embelishments, from what I’ve seen Austinites like to keep it simple - wearing as little as possible.

Notice the matching bandana and bathing suit, coincidence? I think not

Child of the 80s, are bold prints coming back?

Lots of strapless tops, bright colors, fun shapes and vintage cuts were out this weekend and that includes guys and girls!

One girl I talked with even mentioned that she has a separate style depending on if she is boating or hitting up the lake,  do you do the same thing?

So what’s your favorite summer swimsuit style when your feelin’ frisky and tired of the heat?

    Great post, Linsey!

    I do have a couple different bathing suits and it all depends on whether or not I’m going to the lake, greenbelt, pool or boating.
