Sizzling bikini styles from the runways of Paris

The Mode City lingerie and swimwear tradeshow is an annual Parisian fashion event and took place between September 5 and 7 this year. Take a look at the latest sexy offerings straight from the catwalks of the world's fashion capital.

We start off with this itsy-bitsy polka dotted two-piece. No, they'll never go out of style! And if you're feeling adventurous, you can team it with heart-shaped retro shades.

Flatter your figure

Choose swimwear that's suited to your body type. If you've got a slightly voluptuous bod, this cupped bikini and matching bottom is ideal. And hey, accessorise -- don't miss the pretty cardigan, straw bag and wrist cuff. They have a great overall effect.

Emerald inspiration

The unusual cut and emerald hue on this one stand out. The tie-up detail on the front adds a nice touch.

Ravishing riviera style

Going on an exotic holiday? Dig the lovely bronze colour and sheen on this bikini. It's classy, sexy and goes great with I'm-a-celebrity sunglasses and an oversized hat.

Conservative but cool

We can't stress this enough -- an all-black one-piece will always, always be in fashion. The clingy silhouette can camouflage lumps and bumps and that beret looks pretty edgy.

Sexy shorts

If you're bottom-heavy, these boy-shorts are just the thing. The overall effect is very retro and what's old is new, right?

Cinch and tie

Mauve is certainly a pretty, unique colour when it comes to swimwear. This halter bikini also stands out with its cinched upper piece and cute tie-up detailing.

Pleated and petite

While white is not a favoured beach colour thanks to its transparency, this one looks pretty safe, doesn't it? And those neat pleats make for a design that stands out from the rest.

Ruffle a few feathers

And finally here is another pale pretty two-piece, this one with feminine ruffles doing the trick. So take a page out of Parisian style and go swimsuit shopping today!
