Welcome to a little thing I like to call the swimwear scaries. Your holiday is around the corner and just when you’re mentally packing for your trip you realize last year’s bikinis and swimsuits are just, well, so last year. Don’t panic. Lucky for us, Instagram influencers have tested the waters before we have to. It's no longer just about the high-cut bikini bottoms. From leopard print bikini’s to retro white bathing suits, we’ve rounded up 6 swimwear trends you can steal with just a few clicks.
Feel like a retro goddess in white swimwear
Ok, so ever since the photos of celebrities rocking classic white swimsuits came out I’ve been obsessing over a creamy off-white bikini and the classic swimwear they seem to love. It’s classy. It’s sexy. It’s packed with retro confidence. Gimmie all of that! Luckily for us, brands are more than aware that white swimwear will make us feel like the classiest thing on the beach so there are plenty of options out there like elegant white bathing suits and basic triangle bikinis.
Splash out on classic swimwear
So in my opinion, this is where you can really splash out on luxury swimwear. Classic swimwear simply never goes out of style, so going for a bikini or bathing suit that is more on the luxury side will let you enjoy it for many summers and holidays to come. We’re not surprised here that Acne is acing my favorite of the swimwear trends with their signature minimalist Scandinavian style.
Switch things up with a one-shoulder bathing suit
A one-shoulder bathing suit is just the right amount of daring to switch things up from classic swimwear. As a little fashion bonus: this type of asymmetrical bathing suit doubles as a going-out top if you match it with a pair of cool boyfriend jeans or a leather skirt. Meaning you can go from the beach straight to the club. Ok, no one actually does that, you can go home to shower in between.
Slip into a leopard-print swimsuit
It feels like everyone is getting their paws on leopard print clothing, seriously, try counting how many leopard print midi skirts you see in a day. And it turns out this animal print crept into swimwear trends as well. Let the print grab all the attention and keep the fit simple, or if you’re feeling more risqué go for a high-cut bikini bottom.
Make a statement in Stripes
I like how these striped details are bringing a new design element to more simple styles of bikinis and swimsuits. It feels retro and elegant and stands out from just a basic triangle bikini or simple bathing suit without overdoing it.
