There are still plenty of days left in summer, and when it comes to shopping for swimwear, it can be quite a difficult task. Not only do you need to find something flattering but you will also want pieces that are modern as well. Whether you want to cover in a one-piece or flaunt your figure in a bikini, we rounded up five trends that are perfect for swimsuit season. Choose from retro-inspired crochet, off-the-shoulder silhouettes and edgy mesh.
Channel retro vibes in a crocheted swimsuit. You can choose from one-piece knitwear styles or turn up the sex appeal in a bikini with a high-waist. Whether you are looking for a solid hue or stripes, crochet is on trend. Models like Alessandra Ambrosio and Cara Delevingne have been photographed in crochet pieces. When it comes to new swimwear in 2017, a crochet piece will earn you plenty of compliments. Wear with a visor or cute coverup for the ultimate swimsuit look.
Add some edge to your look with a swimsuit featuring straps. Choose from a one-piece with straps running down the front, or a bikini set including a wrap top. Straps don’t only need to cover the front, but they can also be worn at the back. We also recommend a crisscrossed strap to accent your décolletage. And if you are looking to cover up, wear a lace kaftan over the look.
Gingham Print Swimsuits
Another trend that is hot for swimwear season is gingham print. The checkered pattern not only offers retro vibes, but also adds a unique touch to your beach outing. Models like Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid have been spotted wearing this trend. You can wear a gingham print with a bikini top and matching bottoms, or mix and match with one printed and solid piece.
You may have thought that the off-the-shoulder trend is only for your everyday clothing. But the bare shoulder look now can be worn on the beach or by the pool. Upgrade the classic one-piece silhouette with a ruffled off-the-shoulder accent. Or flaunt your bikini bod with a cold shoulder top and hipster bikinis. And those bikini tops can be quite diverse. Choose from bandeau, one shoulder and flounced ruffles for the ultimate bombshell look.
Another swimsuit trend that channels retro style is mesh. Although mesh became a popular material for swimsuits in the 90’s, it’s back in a major way this year. The classic bikini silhouette easily gets updated with the addition of black mesh. Or if you are looking for something a bit more colorful, rock a mesh top over a neon hued bikini. The material can also upgrade a color-blocked motif with sheer paneling.
