This Season’s Biggest Trends in Swimwear

Every season it feels like swimwear designers are trying to outdo themselves, and this summer is no exception. Gone are the color-blocked, ruffled, and all-white suits of summer 2013, and in their place are some structured, innovative swimsuit trends that cater to just about any style. Cut-outs, classics, and color, oh my! Here are some of the biggest trends in swimwear this season:

The Cut-Out Suit. This summer’s cut-out swimsuit is for an adventurous gal who doesn’t mind standing out (or having strange tan lines). Forget about cut-out swimsuits that are only carved out around your sides and midsection – this summer’s cut-out trend is all about pushing the limits with silhouettes that are inventive, unique, and unexpected.

The Classic One-Piece. One-piece swimsuits do not have to be dowdy or dated, and this season’s focus on them proves it. This silhouette is called “classic” for a reason, and with modern updates such as cute prints and colors, a “classic” can still feel really fresh. This style is also really ideal for anyone who wants to embrace a retro style at the beach, while keeping it simple by avoiding separates. A great one-piece suit can even double as part of a nighttime ensemble; you might find yourself practically living in your classic one-piece before too long.

The Non-traditional Bikini. This summer, more non-traditional bikinis are kicking those string bikinis to the curb. Modern details like laces, more concealing cuts, and mesh are all what make this season’s bikini a more updated version of the typical option. Go bold with mesh detailing, or keep it more polished with a high waist and retro-inspired finishes. Either way, you’re going to love this trend in more innovative bikini silhouettes.
