Are you a frilly pin-up girl or an in-your-face rock star? Well, whatever persona you put on, we have got the swimwear to fit! Two of our favorite designers, Betsey Johnson Swimwear and Red Carter Swimwear bring us two entirely different collections, with entirely different looks.

Betsey Johnson Swimwear is a tried and true, dream come true name in fashion. When it comes to swimwear, no one can top her. The details are lavish and exquisite. Any girl would feel like a pin-up princess in her suits.

There is not another company out there to compare in quality and the attention to detail. Her name is synonymous with fun and flirty, and it is a line that always combines the old with the new. Above all, the swimwear is just beautiful, and is made to fit every body.

Simplicity is great, but of no interest to the girl who swims and struts in Betsey. Betsey Johnson's swimwear is everything a girl could want in a swimsuit. With fabulous names like "Patty Cakes" "Petal Pusher" and "At the Hop," a feeling of retro glamour is evoked. And while vintage accents are a huge portion of the design scheme, everything is totally modern.

2010 is all about 1950's pin-up glamour. Betsey Johnson's take on the black and white look is hot. In fact, it is a dominant presence throughout the collection. Tops and bottoms are fit with a lovely detailed called "Peek-a-bows," which involve tiny keyhole cutouts and tiny bows.

Ruffles titillate on "Cheeky Peeky" bottoms that have the perfect coverage- enough to be modest, and enough to be sexy. These are details that are all so distinctly Betsey Johnson, and absolutely gorgeous.

Modern, striking, dramatic, sophisticated and simply stated are the designs of Red Carter. Based in South Beach, and sold in chic boutiques in all of fashion's hot spots- from New York to Tokyo- this is one fashion line that has earned its keep.

Knowing good taste, Red Carter swimwear has been spotlighted in such huge fashion magazines as In Style, Elle, and Glamour. Very rarely can a designer combine charm with detailed complexity and pull it off time and again.

Red Carter swimwear is finely crafted and meant to get noticed- the epitome of his South Beach style. There is a very artistic and sculptural element to his design- think Art Deco translated into swimwear. Red is also highly influenced by rock-n-roll, which is clearly evident in his dramatic designs. Everything about Red Carter Swimwear is high fashion. If clean lines and fine details are your thing, it is going to be Red Carter for you.

2010 in the land of Red Carter is a perfect fit with edgy details. The highlights of these suits are geometric prints in bold colors and black and white. Zigzag prints can be found on many different swim suits- in a whole slew of unique versions.

Solid blacks are linked with gold hardware. Beads and semi-precious stones line others. Sometimes we get a taste of the cutesy, when Red puts his fashion-forward take on ruffles and buttons- but it is executed in a very streamlined fashion.

So, whether you are looking to be a perfectly put together pin-up star on the beach, in a stellar suit by Betsey Johnson Swimwear, or a rebel rocking the waves in some hot number by Red Carter swimwear  there is a designer swim suit designed just for your fancy!
