Summer has arrived, which means you’ll be spending days lounging at the beach or by the pool. But before you head off on vacation, the staff at Lovely Lady Lumps Swimwear New York says to check out this year’s top trending bathing suit styles that will surely have you making a splash this summer.
7 Top Bathing Suit Trends For 2016
1. One-Piece Bathing Suits
Not just for those looking to cover up, one-piece bathing suits are making a come-back. Single-piece swimwear options now come in a variety of colors, cuts, and styles, and complement a variety of body types. Spice up your one-piece swimsuit with flirty mesh and retro details.
2. Strapless Bandeau Tops
Bandeau tops are a popular trend this summer, and they’re a flirty alternative to the traditional bra top or triangle halter.
3. High-Waist Bikini Bottoms
The high waist is making its way back from the ‘90s and women love the cut for bikini bottoms. Whether paired with a flirty bandeau top or a more conservative halter, high-waist bikini bottoms are all the rave on the beach this summer.
4. Wild Prints
To make the ultimate statement with your bathing suit this season, throw out your boring, solid bikini and opt for one with a wild, colorful print. Put a modern spin on delicate paisley with metallic-tone accents—or strut a leopard-print suit with attitude.
Taking it back to the ‘70s, fringe on bathing suits is in. From tassels on bikini tops, bottoms, and even on one-piece bathing suit necklines, you’re sure to see this trend at the beach this summer.
6. Creative Cut-Outs
As if a bikini didn’t show enough skin already, 2016 is marking the year for creative cut-outs in bathing suits. You’ll find lots of different ways to wear this style, from slit cut-outs in bikini bottoms to large feature pieces in one-piece suits.
The sporty, chic look in swimwear made its appearance in 2015 and it’s sticking around for another year. From sports-bra inspired bikini tops to bold, neon colors you’d see on classic ‘80s athletic wear, sporty swimsuits are in for 2016.
