Here are some of the swimwear trends to keep in mind when shopping for your swimsuit collection:
Criss-Cross: Some people may not understand why criss-cross straps are on bathing suits, considering they don’t make for the best tan lines. However, similar to cutouts, they give a very sexy look to your swimsuit.
High-waisted bottoms: These kinds of suits were very popular in the 1950’s, and are making a comeback – just like the trend of high-waisted shorts.
Triangl: Triangl tops are perfect for those of us girls with a little extra cushion in the front. They give great coverage from top to bottom, and come in all kinds of patterns and colors.
Middle-Slit: Bandeau tops were also popular last season, but this season they are coming back a little different. Some bandeau tops come with a cut out in the middle, or even a zipper, to add a little extra pizzazz to your swim top.
Crochet/Mesh: These types of tops and bottoms give a comfortable and classy look to your suit. The mesh is very sexy, and the crochet material provides the perfect beach look.
High-neck tops: If you’re not a fan of getting your cleavage sunburned, this is the perfect top for you. It is similar to a halter top that comes all the way up to you’re neck. Again, also perfect for those with a larger chest.
There are also some of last year’s trends continuing into this season, such as aztec print, neon colors, fringe and cutouts.
Aztec print: Makes for a fun bathing suit print without being too loud. These prints can come in just about any color scheme and bring a fun side to your swimsuit.
Neon: Neon colors are perfect for showing off your tan skin. Not only do they make you look tanner, but the way the sun reflects off the suit makes your sun-kissed skin appear healthier and glowing.
Fringe: Fringe bathing suits are a great way to bring an edgy and fun side to your swimsuit. Depending on how how long your fringe tassels are, they can offer a little coverage, as well.
Cutouts: Cutouts in your swimsuit give off a sexy vibe without being too revealing. Perfect for when you want to show off just enough.
