This summer’s swimwear trends
Some might think that bathing suits, as small as they are, leave little room for design details. But if you’re a fashionista, you know otherwise. What color, how high the waistline, or how wide the straps are all choices that can dramatically alter a suit’s visual impact. Each year swimwear designers change things up to draw customers to their brand. We took a deep dive into the fashion world to see what’s fresh this year, and while the critics don’t all agree, here’s what we liked.
A belt accentuates the waistline and, if removable, adds versatility to a suit. We saw lots of belted designs for summer 2019.
Rash guards—originally worn only by surfers—are a health-savvy trend this season, providing more coverage for those who sunburn easily.
This may not be a trend (we only saw one), but it sure is clever! A reversible suit like this one from Agua Bendita could be the perfect solution when packing space is tight. Wear the print side one day and solid black the next! Who’s gonna know?
Classics are always on-trend.
Some of us would rather wear the same suit for several years rather than follow swimwear trends each season. Not to worry. The classics are still out there.
Whatever you wear this summer—whether coastside or poolside—be comfortable, be safe and have fun!
