Things are getting hot out there. The temps are up, the ice cream trucks are out, and you’re ready to set sail on a new adventure. We’re thrilled to show you the swimwear trends you can rock at the beach, the pool, or the yacht (read: pontoon boat).
They’re spicy. They’re cute. They’re sporty. Trends hitting LA, Miami, (and Athens, Georgia!) are making waves worldwide. What’s better than picking out new boutique swimwear once summer rolls around? OK, maybe the ice cream truck. Fine, fresh oysters rock too. But if it’s fashion you’re after, we’ve got the goods.
EYES UP HERE: HIGH NECK CUT
We can’t get enough of this trend. There’s something so comfortable about wearing a high neck suit. You can catch a frisbee in it, you can bend over without your goodies falling out, and you can hold any conversation without worrying about wandering eyes.
This cut gives you a modest look with a lot of flair, a tricky feat to master. Take in the summer with a high-neck halter that leaves you feeling sassy but sweet.
THE SANDS OF TIME: HOURGLASS CUT
Your figure doesn’t need any help, but the drama of hourglass cut swimsuits makes a va-va-voom vixen out of everyone they touch. What’s most cool about this cut? Its versatility. It can either reveal a lot of skin or utilize transparent mesh for a more modest approach.
We love that this trend brings a bit of old Hollywood glamour poolside. Can’t you just see Golden Age movie stars swooning over these suits?
DEEP AS THE OCEAN: PLUNGING NECKLINE
You can’t blame people for staring. They want to look away, but just can’t. The plunging neckline is the most striking swimsuit trend we’ve seen in a long time. Take the plunge deep – and even deeper – to create a sexy, bold look that takes brings any one-piece to the next level.
Like suits with side cut-outs, this style can be made with mesh for a modest look with a little mystery. But if you’re feeling fearless, you won’t let anything get in the way of your plunge.
LOOK AT THOSE PINS: HIGH LEG CUT
The one true bathing suit essential: a sexy black one piece. This suit works anywhere and has a timeless feel, all while flaunting one of the most popular trends of this season.
The high leg cut isn’t one for the faint of heart. You wear it loud and proud and strut down the beach without looking back. If you’ve got the goods, this suit – and the glory – is yours.
DO WE CALL THEM BRIEFS?: HIGH-WAIST CUT
Thank goodness for Taylor Swift, rumored to have started the high-waisted swimsuit trend. On a day when you feel less like showing off and more like retreating under the umbrella, high-waisted bikini bottoms solve every ill. The full coverage feels great and still leaves a stylish impression. Style conscious + body conscious? A perfect pairing.
BLOOMING STYLE: FLORAL PATTERNS
Floral never goes out of style. And it always looks fresh. How? While other prints took center stage in years past, florals waited patiently until this season. Now they’re blooming off the racks everywhere we look! Florals, you never let us down.
Consider getting a suit with fun Hawaiian flowers, blooms big or small. A botanical-themed suit might be just the thing to help bring the sunshine to your summer.
YOU DO YOU: SWIM EDITION
We don’t want your indecision to get the best of you. Go on. Get your fave new suits and make this a summer where style meets fun. Fun, after all, is summer’s main objective.
