Gretta's Got It: Swimwear
Summer is almost here, and that means swimsuit shopping is right around the corner, but, don't worry, our style reporter Gretta Monahan shows us the latest looks in Gretta's Got It!
WSVN -- Buying a bathing suit makes me feel like I'm in my birthday suit, so we are going to go see my friend Eduardo, and he's going to show us what's hot.
Gretta Monahan: "Hey, Eduardo. How are you?"
Eduardo: "Good to see you."
Gretta: "What are you going to see on the beach and on the celebs?"
Eduardo: "OK, let me show you."
Gretta: "All right, show me."
Eduardo: "Well, as you know, brown is the new black."
Gretta: "Sure is."
Eduardo: "And, as you can see right here, this is a style that Queen Latifah got."
Gretta: "What if I want something with a little more -- you know I don't have a lot going up top as Queen Latifah, so what if I want to add a little enhancement?"
Eduardo: "You can definitely do it with this style that has a little bit of a padding."
Gretta: "Sometimes if you're running around, you're athletic, you need something that is going to hold up. Is this an ideal suit for that?"
Eduardo: "I agree. The way it's cut in the front, it still gives it that sexy bikini style."
Gretta: "Oh, I love this suit. I love the color."
M: "They did some embellishment, which actually plays a role with the bottom, as you can see the color on both sides because it's also a reversible bottom."
Gretta: "Oh, so you get two suits in one. This is so elegant, so here we have the bottom just flipped. Same bottom, new color."
Gretta: "Are bikinis still number one?"
Eduardo: "Not necessarily. A big thing today is a tankini. You can also put this with a pair of jeans and you still look sheik for South Beach."
Gretta: "I love that. I am crazy for all the metallic on the runway. You know why? Because it just goes with anything. So, can you show me what is the greatest and latest in suits?"
Eduardo: "This one has a nice shimmer. It just really compliments almost every skin tone."
Gretta: "So now, the final, single most important trend of the season."
Eduardo: "I think it's the one-piece cut-out."
Gretta: "Let's go see it."
Eduardo: "It has that one detail in the front, which covers the belly area that most women don't like to show off."
Gretta: "So you can look sexy in a one piece bathing suit?"
Eduardo: "Today they are making them skimpy enough so you can still look very chic and sophisticated."
Gretta: "Well, good. Thank you, Eduardo."
Eduardo: "Oh, you're welcome."
Gretta: "Now I know you have some saved for me."
Eduardo: "Gretta, let's take a look."
Gretta: "All right, am I ready for the beach?"
Eduardo: "You look amazing."
Gretta: "Are you sure?"
