Chances are you’ve worn your same old swimsuit for years—that classic black maillot or adorable polka-dot bikini. While those styles will always be, well, in style, couldn’t your beach ensemble use an upgrade? If you’re not quite sure want type of suit to invest, we’re helping you out by breaking down five of the best runway trends of the season to give your summer look that quick and easy refresh.
Lessons In Lingerie
No longer content to just stay in the bedroom, lingerie details are making their way out in public. Sheer panels, pretty Swiss dots, lace edging, and sweet scalloping are now bona fide swimwear trends. Just make sure that the materials aren’t as delicate as lingerie; you don’t want your suit melting as soon as it hits the water.
Definitely our favorite! Boho style swimsuits are absolutely for sophisticated women who prefer playful color and prints. So, what are you waiting for? Now, you just have to pick a place for your next summer destination.
If you’re a minimalist when it comes to swimsuits, the one-shouldered style is a bold trend that won’t make you feel weird, but will still make a big impact.
90’s trend is back in style. Retro swimsuits are definitely a huge trend for this summer, so if you are a stylish woman who prefer 90’s trends than this is definitely your choice for the summer. High-waisted bottoms are proof that sexy doesn’t always mean more skin.
Usually, a “cutout one-piece” inspires fear in anyone who actually likes wearing a one-piece, because monokinis tend to look like a bikini held together with random strings (that only seem to be there for the purpose of pinching and puckering). These cutouts follow the natural curve of a woman’s body and are on the more subtle side. Bonus: These suits won’t shift when you’re splashing around, so you don’t have to hold onto your bottom when you finally execute that cannonball you’ve been plotting.
