"The Early Show" is taking in the sand and surf in Miami -- and also the swimsuits!
Style expert Katrina Szish, editor in chief of PinkMemo.com, showcased some of the latest styles heating up the runways. To model the suits, "The Early Show" enlisted cheerleaders from the teams in the Super Bowl, the Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints.
As they took to "The Early Show" runway, Szish gave her take on some of the season's hot trends:
Bold Color: This season, the brighter the better -- whether you opt for an electric color combination like a one-piece or a neon bikini, blinding colors are the go-to. Up the ante with a unique silhouette. These bright colors look best with simple accessories and neutral metallic shoes.
Nautical: Stripes, anchors and shades of navy, red and white make this preppy staple an essential.
Retro Chic: The retro-suit made an appearance on many designer runways, even bringing back the high-waisted bottoms of the days of the Pin-up girl. You can also get the look with a one-piece suit with a skirt detail.
Asymmetrical: Swimwear is taking a cue from the red carpet with asymmetrical offerings, specifically with one-shoulder detailing.
Ruffles: Straight from the runway to the beach, this feminine detail is showing up on both tops and bottoms.
Graphic Patterns: Pop art and op art prints and oversized patterns are making it onto even the smallest of swimsuits.
Floral: Oversized, colorful floral prints -- nothing small and delicate here.
Cut-outs: Dramatic cut-out patterns create optical illusions and expose skin that doesn't usually get its day in the sun (apply sunscreen carefully or you will have very unique tan lines!)
