Pull out the suitcase, summer is here, and it’s time to use up those well-earned vacation days to drive, fly, sail, or commute in whichever way gets you to a sunny location near the water. Stay tuned to find out which swimwear you need to make, that’s easy to grab summer after summer.
Triangle Bikini Top
What is there more to say? The triangle bikini top is a summer staple thanks to its simplicity and versatility. Recently, Tiktok gave the triangle bikini top new life with innovative ways to tie and style it, something I never thought of. If I’m honest, all the little strings kinda terrify me (for security purposes), but this top is a quintessential part of a bikini collection. Luckily, any triangle-style bikini top will do, so if you’re like me and prefer an actual closure, the Milla Bralette is exactly what you need. This is the perfect bikini top to pair with an oversized shirt for a quick bite, water activities, or more casual poolside lounging, unlike some more trendy swimwear that includes a bit more fuss.
Is it possible to have a more versatile swim piece than the classic triangle bikini top? The cropped tank is vying for that first place spot. Season after season, it’s easy to spot the basics that we all circle back around to. A simple cropped tank is a wardrobe must, so why not make it into a swimsuit top using the Bay Swimsuit Free Sewing Pattern for a supportive and full coverage look that won’t leave you hanging—literally.
The perfect swim bottom fits your needs. For some, a cheeky, barely-there bottom is exactly what the doctor ordered for a day spent tanning, but for everyone else, a little variety is what they need. High waist, bikini style, or boy short type swimwear is more functional and made for a wide variety of needs ranging from comfort to practicality. While I’m an advocate for wearing what makes you happy, I don’t love constantly adjusting my bottoms to cover the essential bits—which is exactly what I need my swim bottoms to do.
Classic One Piece
Okay, so this isn’t exactly all about the classic. Well, it is, but with a twist. Mood’s swim patterns gravitate to the one-piece, and for good reason. Find a one-piece for every mindset, body type, and preference. For the sun-conscious or water sport babe, the Abelia swimsuit features all the bells and whistles to keep you safe and secure. Cutouts are trendy, so why not keep them stylish even by the pool (the Speedwell Swimsuit can help). Who knew a one-piece was so versatile?
There’s a lot to love about the round-up of this year’s swim trends. The emphasis is shifting from style to comfort, and that’s a refreshing concept. Find the swimwear that fits your needs and run with it. What swimwear are you reaching for on repeat this summer? Leave a comment below!
