Top Swimwear Trends You Should Try This Summer!

It’s time to prepare your clothes for pool parties and trips to the beach! This year, there are many exciting new styles of swimsuits, ranging from eye-catching to understated and from fashionable to functional.  Read on for a helpful guide to assist you in navigating the current swimwear trends, so you can select the perfect swimsuit to wear this summer.

Ruffled Tops and Ruched Bottoms 

Swimsuits with ruched bottoms are both adorable and have a slimming effect. They’re in fashion at the moment, especially high-waisted ones, and they’re great for modest swimwear that looks stylish and flatters any body shape.

Ruffled tops are also trendy right now. These tops go perfectly with your ruched bottoms. They provide more coverage while keeping your beachy look fashionable and up-to-date.

Neon Solids and Bright Colors

Imagine vibrant oranges and glowing pinks. The more vibrant, the better. Summer has always been about lively and vivid colors, but this year takes it to the next level with radiant neon shades. Warm and bright colors are trendy this season, especially in swimwear.

Embrace boldness this summer by mixing and matching this flattering, enjoyable, and positive trend. For instance, you can opt for a tankini with a high neckline in a solid pink or fuchsia shade and pair it with chic eyeglasses by Gucci. Bright and bold colors show confidence and grab attention.

Crocheted Bikinis

This summer, unconventional textures are popular in swimwear, and one of the favorites is the crochet bikini top. The crochet trend isn’t new, but it has made a big comeback this year, especially with a boho style. 

Crochet swimsuits may not be the most practical for swimming, but they are cute for relaxing and getting sun. Crochet tops are also versatile and can be worn day to night by adding a wrap skirt and chunky sandals.

Matching Cover-Ups

Getting matching sets of swimsuits and cover-ups is a popular summer trend for swimwear. It’s both enjoyable and valuable. Having a matching cover-up and swimsuit set eliminates the need to figure out a complete look for your beach day or poolside style while on your summer vacation.

Animal Prints

Another exciting and fashionable swimsuit style is animal print. Animal prints have neutral colors but bold patterns. We adore a natural cheetah or leopard print swimsuit with a vibrant red accent piece like a wrap-around cover-up for the beach.

Animal prints vary in patterns and colors, but the most popular choices are leopard, zebra, and cheetah prints. These prints mostly come in earthy and neutral tones, allowing you to quickly enhance or tone down the pattern with accessories. Animal prints are timeless and trendy, making them versatile to dress up or down and incorporate into your style.

With so many fantastic new styles in fashion this year, it isn’t easy to choose just one. We hope this style guide helps you decide or gather them all!
