Hottest Upcoming Swimsuit Trends

Today I have Claire again as my guestwriter!

Even though it seemed like it will never come, spring is finally here. This means that summer is just around the corner, and if we really want to look stunning on the beach, we should slowly start preparing. Going to the gym and changing your diet will make you look amazing, but it’s also important to find the right swimsuit. This year’s trends are incredibly interesting and versatile, and if you’re hoping to wear something modern and eye-catching, here’s what you should pay attention to.

Wrap top bikinis

The trend that shyly emerged last year has now come back in full swing – sexy bikinis with tops which wrap around your chest. This design offers great support for the breasts, making them look perkier than ever. What is more, it stays firmly in place so you can swim, jump, and dive with ease – it isn’t going anywhere. Since they are so versatile, you can pair them up with sexy ripped denim shorts, light beach kaftans or casual floral shorts, and look equally stunning. Depending on how much support you need, you can choose halters or spaghetti straps.

The mini tee

Fashion is evolving and becoming bolder with every new season, so this new trend shouldn’t come as a surprise. Bikinis with tee-like tops are taking over beaches and pool parties by storm, and it looks like 2017 is going to be all about the mini tee. The bottoms can be classic or retro deep-waist ones, and the sleeves on the top can be ruffled, off-the-shoulder, full-shoulder caps, or you can even go for a full crop top. As long as you don’t mind getting dressed up for the beach a bit more than usual, you can rock this look with ease. Since the top looks like a tee already, you should pick the bottom carefully – deep waist shorts with big sunglasses will make you look like a pin-up model, while wide, flowy skirt will give you that casual boho look.

The biggest question we have to ask ourselves: “Are the tan lines worth it?” It seems like this year we won’t even have to ask that, as one-piece swimsuits are rocking more straps, strings, and sheer fabric than ever before. For those who would like to hide their stomach and emphasize the waist and legs, monokinis with mesh fabric are perfect. Girls are also falling in love with one-piece, one strap monokinis. Since they can look both modest and sexy, they are even suitable for after-beach dinner if you wrap a sarong around your waist.

The One-Piece Side Design

One-piece swimsuits are getting a fresh redesign with cut-outs becoming more and more prominent with every passing season. New focus is added to the side seams by using D-rings and laces which connect the front and back end of the swimsuit. There is a solution for those who would like to hide their midsection too: novel wrap designs are incorporated to hide the stomach. When you don’t feel like wearing a bikini because it’s too revealing, side designed one-piece is the perfect choice. Pair it with a seductive sheer beach kaftan or a sarong and you’ll look like a movie star.

Remember that you don’t have to follow current trends closely in order to look stylish and elegant. If you’re not sure how comfortable you’d feel wearing such swimsuits, no matter great they look in magazines, simply don’t wear them. You will never be able to relax and enjoy the pleasant time at the beach unless you feel confident and comfortable. Pick the right swimsuit for you, top it up with great accessories, and you’ll be ready to shine.

Thank you very much Claire! I am ready for swimsuits!

      Ha ha, which one do you like?

    I don’t wear bikini’s because I don’t like my body. My children asked why? And I couldn’t answer that question… they make fun of my choice! ‘Our mother in a badpak’… Dutch: ‘ons mam in unne baaaaadpak’!

      Ha ha, ik hoor t ze zeggen! Brabants dus? Maar jij hebt echt wel een te gek ,,body,,! Maar ik snap waar t vandaan komt. Zonde…

    What a fun post! I usually dread the idea of trying on swimsuits – it’s horrifying. But I am really tempted now to try out a wrap top bikini. They are adorable!

    I like the bikini tshirt top trend 🙂 it adds a little bit more coverage but is still on trend and doesn’t make you look “old”.

    • May 25, 2017 / 1:58 pm

      You are right! I also think that is a great solution!

  8. May 25, 2017 / 10:29 pm

    Nee, ik vind het niet worth the tan lines haha! Ik ga het liefst voor strapless, of iets waar de bandjes makkelijk van omlaag kunnen tijdens het zonnen. Wel vind ik de wrap bikini’s heel erg leuk trouwens, zeker die met de volants. Liefs, Josine

    • May 25, 2017 / 10:44 pm

      Ja die zijn mijn favoriet ook!

    The one piece has come a long way, especially this year! I love the idea of a mini tee as a suit! I also love the high waisted bottoms they’ve come out with.

      I like the wrapped ones a lot! Thank you Carrie!
