This summer, it is all about showing skin. One-pieces and bikinis both feature asymmetrical, cut-out detailing. While this trend can certainly be daring, we are seeing all sorts of alternatives for different levels of modesty. Whether you want a large, bold waist cutout or a simple asymmetrical neckline, this trend will make you feel fabulous! Make your swimsuit in a bold print, or try a neon shade for a super eye-catching look.
Pamela Anderson’s Baywatch swimsuit is iconic for a reason, and this year, runways seem to be paying homage to the sporty, beach-babe look. If you prefer a simpler silhouette, you’ll love this trend! Solid colors are matched with effortless details, including contrast piping and exposed zippers. Thanks to the versatile base, you can easily dress up these swimsuits with large shades, free-spirited flower crowns, or statement tote bags.
Glitter & Mesh Cover-Ups
Just because you’re going swimming doesn’t mean you can’t look glamorous! Runways are highlighting sheer coverups accented with glitter or a bold open netting. Keep garment silhouettes simple and let the fabric do all the talking. This breezy, beautiful trend is perfect for sashaying your way to a beachside bar or yacht club!
