Swimwear Trends for the Upcoming Season
Choosing the right bikini or one-piece is often a lifelong struggle for women. On one hand, there’s all those “rules” that tell you which body type you have and which swim suit suits you best. On the other hand, there are always such amazing fashion trends that don’t exactly work for your body type. It’s a difficult process, but there is something for every body type to choose from with the range of different cuts, designs, and products.
When it comes to the design of all types of swimsuits, it is easy to forget all that you know about them or you think you know. One thing is for sure, the one-piece swimsuits will be big this year, just as they were the previous season.
Lisa Marie Fernandez: Neoprene Satin Lisa Marie Swimsuit, $385
What makes them even more interesting are the alterations to the classical one piece swimsuits, like cut-outs. Also, don’t be surprised if you see some one piece swimsuits with leg openings that reach all the way over your hips, or those with collars or G-strings.
Jean Paul Gaultier Butterfly-Print Sporty Two-Piece Tankini Swimsuit, $795
It seems that this year, the designers have attempted to reinvent the look of the swimsuits and break down all the rules. Two-piece swimsuits with long sleeves and those with many straps and ribbons will definitely leave some interesting tan lines on the beaches this year.

If you thought that the cuts will go nuts this season, you should definitely check out the colors and patterns. This season, you just cannot go wrong. The very colorful and complex patterns are a real hit this season. If they are on a two-piece swim suit they can be only on one piece while the other one can be single colored. Or it doesn’t have to be.
Cynthia Rowley Pink Embellished Floral Wetsuit, $295
There are also some really nice, simple, one piece swimsuits with bright colors that resemble those of the ‘90s and even a whole trend of entirely black swimwear that combines some interesting materials and bring some classy elegance to the beach. While this extravaganza is in this year, there is also entirely different stream in trends this year, with very simple and sporty designs which go with those bright and simple colors and straight lines.
All these conclusions about the swim suits for the year to come are taken by analyzing and watching what the designers have come up with. To name the few: Department stores had some fun experimenting with new styles. Their choices for this season include straps, straps, and more straps which make one-piece suits look like two pieces connected with interesting cuts and designs.
Mikoh Swimwear Top, $101
Besides that, they used some crochet in their designs and focused their main colors on yellow and bright pink. On the other hand, Planet Blue has taken an entirely different direction with the colors. They are all for muted, earthy and skin tones and their prints are all scenery-like. The cuts and styles put the efficiency and sporty look as a priority. Alene Too wanted to make the swimwear something that will be worn outside the beach as well. Interesting cuts that resemble tops more than swim suits can be used as regular clothes as well.

What to expect to see in stores this Spring
All these ideas that come from the designers are interesting and fun, but once you go out in search of your go-to swimwear for this year, you can expect to see brands like Victoria Secret to have more universal versions of these design ideas, along with the classical cuts from past seasons.

Therefore, this year, it is very hard to go wrong. Perhaps, the best bet is to choose the suit according to your body type but go trendy with the choice of colors and patterns. The best thing about this trend is that if you cannot decide if you want a one color or patterned swimsuit, you can choose both!
