Women around the world love beachwear. There is something special about these pieces of clothing that always reminds us of sunny weather, beautiful beaches, exotic destinations, and relaxing spas. Thus, it is no wonder we love our bikinis and one-pieces. Additionally, with the wide variety of swimwear choices we currently have, every woman can find plenty of stunning pieces that are not only stylish but also flattering for her body type. Therefore, if you have trouble deciding which swimsuit to go for from this large variety, we bring you some of the latest swimsuit trends and ideas on how to style them.
Lots of colors
An all-black bikini is truly a timeless swimwear option, but why not spice up things a bit with some color? Go for colorful bikini bottoms, preferably high-waisted ones and combine the bold bikini pants with a matching bandeau bikini top. Colorful swimwear is great for accentuating your gorgeous skin and especially colors such as pastel blue or bright orange that will make your bronze tan pop up. In case this feels a bit overwhelming to you, you can always tone down the look with a white or black triangle top. This kind of color combination and color blocking will draw attention to your waist and your curves and put less focus on the upper part of your body.
Animal prints are all over fashion runways at the moment and we couldn’t be happier about it. Leopard, snake, zebra, or any other print is a great option for a swimsuit. You can go for a classic bikini set or opt for an interesting one-piece that can even serve as a bodysuit. Another great thing about these amazing prints is that you can serve a full trendsetter look at the beach, by simply combining a printed swimsuit with a white cover-up, straw hat, and a pair of gold hoops. Moreover, what we also loved seeing in this year’s beachwear campaigns is a lot of body inclusivity. Thus, animal prints are no longer presented as something suitable only for girls of one size. Nowadays, we can see gorgeous curvy girls, rocking with confidence some breathtaking, bold swimsuits.
An interesting take on our usual view of beachwear is most certainly long-sleeved swimsuits. Whether you go for a sophisticated one-piece or a chic off-the-shoulder bikini top, you are definitely going to achieve a trendy and classy beach look. Moreover, this kind of swimsuits is excellent if you want to get a bit more protection from those harmful UV rays. You can go for neon colors, animal or floral prints, and even match long-sleeved swimwear with a timeless pair of high-waisted denim shorts to get a cool daytime look.
Flowers on fashion pieces are not reserved only for spring; you can wear them on your beachwear all year round. What is more, floral swimsuits are quite on trend this year, as we could see during the Miami Fashion Week. Once more, this kind of print proves to be suitable and lovely-looking on women of all shapes and sizes. We can spot an encouraging tendency toward the positive body image not only in the area of swimwear but also in lingerie. This is best seen in the example of Victoria’s Secret, which is experiencing some troubling times at the moment, one of the reasons being the brand’s lack of body inclusivity. In contrast, many other fashion brands opt to include curvier girls, and girls of all sizes, in their campaigns. Thus, there is no reason not to go for a cheerful floral patterned swimsuit, some comfy slides and a pair of funky sunglasses, and rock this look on a beach, by the pool, or even when heading off to a spa.
Whether they are on the bikini bottoms or bikini tops, micro straps are the beachwear trend to follow. Combine a thin-strapped bikini in a colorful red or classic black and accessorize it with some silver earrings and a few stacked rings in the same tone to get a chic and fancy beach look. You can even opt for tiny straps on an elegant one-piece, and get a full glam look by adding a pair of deep-black, oversized sunglasses.
In the end, don’t forget to treat yourself with at least one of the above-mentioned swimsuits. You will love wearing them, as you will feel comfortable and ready to take a dip in the ocean, but you will also look incredibly stylish.
