Summer Swimsuit Trends

by

Every season, it is as if we are playing catch up, scrounging through our wardrobe for styles we can carry over from the season before. While there is an unlimited amount of clothing in this world, for the most of us, there is not an unlimited budget. That is why we love brands like Free Bella that are providing trendy, versatile styles without breaking the bank. In an effort to make your summer swimsuit search as easy as possible, we have rounded up the top styles you should be looking at this summer. From cut-outs to ruffles, these styles are pushing the envelope and reflecting some of the top trending pieces straight from the runways.

Cut-Outs
Oftentimes when one thinks of cut-outs, all we can think of is skin, skin, skin. While the usual goal of hitting the beach or lounging by the pool is to get that perfect tan, we also understand those who want a bit more coverage. That’s where cut-out swimsuits come in, and there are plenty of options to choose from. From one-pieces and high-waisted bottoms, to something a little more scandalous, this trend has all the mediums covered.

Ruffles
The ruffle or frill is taking on a new definition for swimsuits this season. While it still remains the “cute” addition on bathing suits of little girls, ruffles are definitely making a transition into women’s styles in an innovative way. Styles like the black tankini top are great slimming options for women with curvier shapes, and ruffles in general have a great way of cutting in at the right places. Whether you want to show some skin or layer them to appear as a one-piece, this style is definitely dynamic.

ASOS, Aloha Hawaiian Floaty Frill Crop Bikini Top and Print Tie Side Bikini Bottom, $32.25 and $22.65

The V Effect
Baywatch babes, here we come! The iconic red suit that the all-star cast debuted so effortlessly in 1989 is coming back for more. Whether the suit is mimicking this style showing off the hips on both sides or is taking a more modern approach with a deep V-cut down the middle, it’s exciting to see the nice play between coverage and showing some skin.

Bonus Accents
Ruffles, cut-outs and splits in unimaginable places are not the only trending styles for swimsuits this summer: fun textures and shapes are also in store! Metallic shades like this suit at ASOS and the flirty off-the-shoulder suit from Forever 21 are just some examples of swimsuits this season reimagining themselves to mimic street style. Don’t be afraid to mix and match some solid bottoms with more stylized tops, or throw a body-chain on a one-piece suit you already own.
