VAIL, Colorado –No matter what your fashion m.o. is, there’s a trend for every Vail Valley resident at the beach this summer.

For those of you who adore old Hollywood glamour, don a retro chic two-piece. Colorful graphic patterns and paisley prints are perfect for you hippies. For the daring, bold cutouts will suit you best.

If you’re active, sport some big stripes. Of course, there’s always black, which is anything but basic this year with rope straps and ring details.

Out of the water, short shorts or a floaty frock are cover-up favorites.
