Earlier this season we saw pink and other bright hues make its way onto runway shows, in other words onto the eyes, cheeks and lips of models creating princess feel that has now made its way amongst celebs who have been rocking pink all over the red carpets lately.
Soft pink and shimmery rose shades are being used as blush, eye shadow and even on the lips that throws us back to that Californian teenager look.
Draping, replacing the ever popular contouring technique, has made a comeback in the beauty world and is being used for a more intense or avant-garde look by wearing your blush all the way up on the corner of your cheeks and to the side of your eyes.
All eyes were on South Florida last week as Miami held it’s annual Swim Week. Press, bloggers, buyers and fashionistas, crowded the streets of Miami Beach as they made their ways to runway shows, trade fairs, pop-up shops and parties, that were all centered around swimsuits.
This year I got to attend fashion shows and events from Funkshion for the first time, and the island girl in me was beyond excited to see what the designers have in stores for us in 2017. Yes, these bathing suits will not hit the stores until next year. If you were following fashionayiti on Snapchat and Instagram, you already had a little preview of the fashion shows I attended which are: Beach Riot, Blue Life, Kai Lani, Ana Kosturova, Maaji, Monica Hansen Beachwear etc… to name a few.
So, recapping Miami Swim Week in general, here are 8 of the hottest trends that we will see in swimsuits next year:
Plunging One Piece
One piece suits are here to stay and this time the more revealing the better!
A less conservative halter tops were a favorite on the runways. Designers added a risqué side to the halter tops with creative and sheer cuts.
Designers went the extra mile to give us more creative designs with fun and slick cut-outs on both one pieces and bikinis.
Wrap Around Tops
This season designers played around with the basic triangle bikini top giving it a little “extra” with intricate ties and wraps on bikinis tops, bottoms, and one pieces.
Florals, tribal and ethnic prints, stripes and colors were not scarce on the runway.
This swinging and playful accent adorned some bathing suits and ever cover-ups, creating a hippie vibe for the boho girl.
Straps were everywhere on the runways evoking a playful sensation.
Because a beach attire is never complete without a fun cover-up!

Forget less is more. This summer, when it comes to accessories more is more and bigger is better with House of Emmanuele jewelry.
Scrolling through my Instagram feed, I can’t help but stop and stare at how glamorous and regal the jewelry looks. House of Emmanuele evokes a story of pure fantasy and mythology with it’s glamazonian necklaces, gladiator crystal gloves and footcuffs, chokers, earcuffs, head and body jewelry. Handmade in Australia, they are designed with precision and elaboration with oversized Swarovski crystals.

Pom-poms seem to be everywhere this year and are the perfect add-on quirkiness to most accessories: keychains, totes, wallets, backpacks etc.. This summer, we are seeing these playful pom-poms on Sandals, both heels and flats, and are the perfect complement to a summer’s outfit.
From sandals, to heels, to even lace ups, it is no wonder that this vacation-ready trend is one of the hottest this summer.

70’s The groovy and retro style of the 70’s are back more than ever this Spring. From Studio 54’s jumpsuits, to the hippie chic artsy vibe of boho glam, to yes even bell bottoms, the 1970’s nostalgia dominated most runways.
The print for this Spring is the “grown-up” gingham, with a fresh spin to the classic picnic pattern. From Altuzarra’s sweet baby blue, to Oscar De La Renta’s oversize prints, designers stayed in check.
Kimono literally means “thing to wear”. The Japanese inspired dress is as comfy as it is chic. Dresses, jackets, tops, the built-in judo belt is everywhere this season.
If you thought Denim season was over, well you were wrong! The American favorite textileis still present and now more than ever, in pants, dresses and jumpsuits!
