The Hottest Swimwear Trends for Summer 2016
Summer is lurking around the corner and it will be no time when we immerse our feet into the hot sand and take a swim in salty water (or at least pay a visit to your nearest swimming pool). While the anticipation builds for all of the summer’s plans, the most important question remains: What do I wear? Luckily, Miami Swim Week gave as pretty much a clear picture of what this swimwear season will look like, and we must admit that we are absolutely thrilled about the upcoming trends. Some trends from the last season, such as extreme cut-outs and sporty cut-away bikinis are still on the top, while we have spotted a number of new and exciting trends.

Check out the latest trends below.
Long Sleeve Swimsuit
Lisa Marie Fernandez Farrah neoprene swimsuit, $415
Spotted on Swim Week – long sleeves are effectively taking over the scene. We have seen them on Belusso, 6 Shore Road, and Acacia, and we will continue on seeing them on the beaches this summer. No longer are the long sleeves reserved for surfers- now, ordinary beach visitors are wearing them, too.
Orlebar Brown Nyla cropped rash-guard top, $173
This look is a fresh take on swimwear fashion, and we salute the risk. Long-sleeve swimsuits can be found in different varieties, from sleek and sophisticated, to fun & playful.
Melissa Obadash Sicily metallic bikini, $220
The beginning of the year was celebrated as the season of metallic, and there are ways for everyone to wear it. Furthermore, it is the choice of the year for weddings, so that naturally transitioned into swimwear fashion. Gottex, Belusso, and Hammoc showed us how to rock this trend (in accents or full metallic). Not only it is a great way to shine, but it will also make your sun kissed skin look even more amazing.
Kore Swim Pyramid Top,
Remember last year’s and still present trend of cut-outs? Well, this one is a similar trend- only now, the cut-outs are covered with sheer material. The design is ideal if you want to combine your outgoing and bold personality with your more conservative side. The fabric designs are made in a way which is contouring the body, while enhancing your finest features.
Mott Scalloped Swim Top,
$143, & Bottoms, $136
High-neck halter is the ultimate hit of 2016. Halters can be very flattering for your back & shoulders. This year’s models come in a variety of styles – from sporty to pretty prints.
Brigitte Animal Print Bikini, $187.33
Animal prints perhaps seem a bit ‘80s, if you ask us, but there is no denying they will be just as big now as three-four decades ago. Safari-vibe is very chic right now, so earthy colors & jungle animal prints look best. They will highlight sun kissed skin. Amp up the fashion factor with an African head wrap or a simple floppy sun hat.
Maaji ‘Lakes and Rivers’ Underwire Bandeau Bikini Top & Crop Top, $74.00
If you are on the lookout for a flattering bikini that elongates your body and looks gorgeous – search no further. The upcoming season brings us the new trend of a long top – a 2016’s take on the last year’s trend of high waist. This twist on traditional bikini top is super stylish and easy to wear for different body types.
