3 Swimwear Trends To Try This Season


With hot weather finally upon us, we’re itching to splurge on a cute new swimsuit and set up shop by the pool. We know how difficult it can be to find the perfect suit, but if you’re in search of a new silhouette or bold colour, then you’re going to love the options available this summer. Here are a few styles that caught our eye, and how we’ll be wearing them.

The modern classic: We rocked the one-piece last year, and lucky for us, the trend is still going strong. The great thing about this cut is that it’s flattering to your torso, and makes your legs look a mile long. A little extra coverage feels fresh and different – especially in a vibrant colour – and this suit has a strappy back that adds a little flash of sexy. We love neon coral for summer, and can’t get enough of this swimsuit paired with a matching bright lip. Add a Queen Bey-worthy headscarf that’s guaranteed to get compliments.

The surfer chick: From surfing to paddle boarding to kayaking – if you never know what a typical summer day has in store, look to functional swimwear that can handle whatever activities you have planned. This trendy halter shape is flattering on every body type, and has that athleisure flair that is still trending in a big way this season. The tie-dye print keeps the top from feeling too much like a sports bra, and bracelets add a punch of extra colour. A rash guard is perfect for a little extra coverage and sun protection when you’re really getting active.

The new romantic: Pink has been the “it” colour ever since Pantone introduced us to Rose Quartz. This suit is the perfect mix of sexy and sweet, with red crochet detailing that picks up on another big fashion trend this summer. Rather than reaching for the typical cover-up, try this lacy topper that has a boho feel that’s perfect for a pool party or festival. And is anyone else obsessed with body chains right now? Together with a patterned scarf and funky sunnies, the right accessories up the flower child vibes.
