Posted by

With summer coming just around the corner, it’s only a matter of time before we start planning for hot and sunny weather vacation destinations. Vacation planning come hand in hand with travel wardrobe planning, and while it is exciting to think about Instagram-worthy outfits for the beach, it can also be a struggle. Luckily, we’re here to help! Here are the top swimwear trends that will be making waves this summer:

High Neck


This is the perfect swimsuit choice for those who love fun beach activities but also want to achieve a high-fashion look with minimal effort! With this, you will never have worry about a wardrobe malfunction while playing beach volleyball or surfing the waves. The high neck is a great style especially for those with larger chest sizes.

Plunging One Pieces


How low can you go? Like monokini cut outs, plunging neckline one-pieces are fantastic for those who do not want to show too much skin but still want to feel sexy, all while not appearing as excessively conventional. This trend has it all.

Strappy


Adding multiple sides and bra straps are simple but very interesting and sexy changes to the everyday bikini. The strappy bikinis are even more fun when they are in bright colours or splashed with wild prints – this design is definitely a trend that will stay for more seasons to come!

White


A white swimsuit is an elegant and classy staple every gal should have in their wardrobe. A lot of people are turned off by white swimsuits because of the contrary belief of being see-through-when-wet, but not to worry – they usually come with two or more layers of lining. Nothing like a nice glow tan against a white swimsuit to stand out in the crowd.  Also perfect for brides on their honeymoons and bride-to-be’s on their stagettes.

High Cut Bottoms & One Pieces


The higher, the better! For those who worry about not being able to wear those cute high heels to accentuate your legs at the beach, high cut bottoms are the answer. High cut bottoms are very easy to wear as it compliments any body shape while slimming out the waist, making the wearer look taller, and creating the perfect curve to the body.

Mesh


Mesh details are so good when it comes to wanting to experiment with different swimsuit styles that you normally wouldn’t dare to be seen in – it offers sheer coverage that can help with uplifting one’s self-consciousness in certain areas of the body. Mesh details come with various styles, ranging from small minimal cutouts to large revealing panels. Either way, they are a great transitional piece to show and also not show some skin.

Ribbed


Inspired by minimalistic style, ribbed swimwear can be worn on its own or be layered with your everyday beachwear, such as with a baggy t-shirt and a pair of denim shorts. The unique texture makes ribbed swimwear very casual and modern, while also bringing sophistication and a sense of high fashion to the wearer – what a perfect combination!

Off-The-Shoulder Bandeaus

Off-the-shoulder bandeaus are perfect for tanning by slipping off the sleeves when basking in the sun.  What’s even better is that these tops can be paired with denim shorts or jeans for a casual beachy look or high-waisted leather leggings for an outfit to party in all night long.
