One trend popular for summer is the incorporating of underwire in swimwear silhouettes. This adds an extra lift and offers extra support while showing off the female form. Whether you are small chested or big-chested, this is a swimwear trend that works for all body types.
Ruffles are a flirty addition to classic silhouettes we are seeing this summer. They are being added to seams and shoulder straps for a subtle update to make suits feel a little trendier. Whether you are looking for a romantic vibe or a retro vibe, ruffles make a fun addition to any summer swimsuit.
Every summer we see a new batch of prints ushered in. The theme for this summer? Light and playful. We are seeing lots of micro florals, polka dots, blooms, jungle prints, leopard, and tie-dye, so there’s definitely a print for everyone. These playful prints offer a new twist on modern silhouettes for summer.
If minimal swimsuits are more of your thing, you will also see a plethora of clean, simple, and classic silhouettes this summer. Timeless bikinis, one-pieces, and one-shoulder necklines will all be major looks. If you want to try out a more pared-back silhouette, consider trying it in a new color or interesting fabrication like trendy tangerine or sparkly lurex.
Beyond the Beach
Summer 2020’s swimwear is designed to take you way beyond the beach. The new pieces will be able to be utilized in more than just a day in the sun. Think one-pieces that double as bodysuits and swimsuit tops that make instant outfits when paired with bottoms. Embellishments, unique finishes, puffy sleeves, and built-in belts are all perfect to rock an apres-beach look. Add jeans to your one-piece swimsuit, a bikini top with a skirt, or a sheer dress over your high-waisted bottoms. Top it off with oversized sunglasses and fun jewelry.
Belts & O-Ring Details
As part of the beyond the beach trend, we are seeing more and more swimsuits with built-in belts and o-ring details. An added belt can make your one-piece feel already styled, not to mention it’s waist flattering abilities. Interesting details like belts in pearl finishes, tortoise acetate, and natural bamboo make this trend feel ultra-modern.
Whether you’re able to take your new swimsuit to the beach or just your backyard, there are a ton of trendy suits to shop for this summer. From girly details to playful prints to sleek silhouettes, there is something for everybody in this swimwear haul.
