Five Top Swimwear Trends for 2020
The weather is heating up! And the only thing hotter than the summer sun is a sizzling swimsuit featuring one of the season’s top trends. So, what are the looks you need to get your hands on? Read on to find out what your favorite influencers, street style stars and celebrities are wearing…and exactly what you will look amazing in, too!
Trend 1 : Belts
An unconventional design for swimwear, high-style belted looks bring to mind the powerful ensemble of badass Bond girls. Who can forget that classic white swimsuit…and decades later, Halle Berry slaying it in an orange string bikini with a belt—to hold her sword, of course.
Detailing high-rise bottoms or the center of a sleek one-piece, this trim, attached accessory not only adds a stylish touch but creates a slimming effect by highlighting the waist and carving an hourglass shape. Choose a swimsuit with a posh buckled band or try one with a self-tie sash.
Trend 2 : Ruffles
A huge runway hit trending on a variety of fashions, ruffles are also a winning element of summer 2019 swimwear. Pile on the frills for a flirty, feminine touch that enhances two-piece or one-piece swimsuits.
We love the peplum ruffle detail on our seersucker suit and the sweet popover flounce on our off-the-shoulder bikini. When in doubt for what to pack for vacation with your beau, remember: ruffles equal instant beach glamour.
Trend 3 : Sporty Details
Nearly 20 years after the Spice Girls breakup, the girls are back on a reunion tour…and the Sporty Spice look lives on! Channel her active girl aesthetic with athleisure-style swimsuits featuring zip-neck crop tops, fuller-coverage bralettes, rashguards, colorblocking detail and more.
Perfect for beachgoers looking to show off (check out the sexy Brazilian cut on some of the styles we offer!), these swimsuits hit a sweet spot between fashion-forward and coolly casual.
Anyone up for a game of beach volleyball?
Trend 4 : Crochet
This is not your grandmother’s crochet! These lacy, peek-a-boo styles are sexy with a capital S. Beautifully made and richly textured, crafty crochet makes a bikini or bathing suit anything but basic.
If you’re feeling daring, try a barely-there sheer style that shows off your confidence. Otherwise, opt for a pretty design that’s fully lined to maintain some mystery. Step up the style with beachy embellishments—see our styles with tropical puka shell trim.
Trend 5 : High-Waisted
More of a silhouette than a design detail, retro-inspired high-waist bikinis are enjoying the spotlight. Not only evoking the pretty pin-up look, we adore how high-rise styles effortlessly flatten our tummies and provide more coverage with the advantages of a two-piece.
And it’s easy to double up on trends with this one. Try the high bikini bottoms in an adorable picnic print like our 50s-chic gingham bikini or pick a pair with edgy cutout sides or grommet studs.
Can’t decide on just one look? Well there are 93 days of summer, and we plan on spending about half of those at the beach. Grab one suit that fits each trend for the perfect rotation that includes a look that’s sophisticated, flirty, sporty, chic and playful.
