8 Swimwear Trends to Dive Into

3 years ago

We’re right around the corner from lolling-about-in-the-sun-season, AKA summer. If you’ve been looking to update your swimwear and want to be on trend this season, you’ve got a lot to choose from, stylewise.

Yes, the swimwear designer gods realized that women like variety, so I've found eight trends to fall in love with and wear at the pool or beach—whether you're plus size or not, whether you prefer one-piece or two. What are they? There’s retro (thank you, Mad Men!), surfer, tropical floral print, stripes, dots, nautical, color block, and graphic prints.

If you like to buy separate tops and bottoms, you can even combine two styles: Mix and match dots and stripes, or tropical floral and stripes, or nautical and stripes or dots. The secret to combining prints is to stay in the same color family.
