When it comes to bathing suits I was always a two piece halter bikini with hipster bottoms type of a gal, but over the past few years the styles have really evolved and the options are almost endless! And while I have yet to venture out into a different style (it’s been a few seasons since I’ve purchased a new one) there are several swimsuit trends that I would like to try out! Read on to find out the 7 swimsuit styles trending for summer 2018.
Practical sporty swimsuits with more coverage are totally on trend for 2018! We are talking color blocking, razorbacks, and cute cuts that won’t have you worrying about spilling out of your suit!
Flirty and feminine suits have been everywhere lately. Everything from lace, floral and ruffles to shades of blush pink and red have been dominating the swimwear department. This Ted Baker one piece is ultra feminine combining a soft shade of pink and ruffles.
Yes, you read that right velvet is currently a new trend in swimwear! You’re probably thinking how is velvet practical for swimming and hot temperatures? To be honest, I have no idea but this style is different and these suits are so cute I might just try it to find out.
Crochet swimsuits always seem to be in style but this year they are really having a moment. You can choose from a suit that is entirely crocheted or a suit that just has a bit of crochet detailing like this one.
High cut Legs
This 80s and 90s trend are back and in full force. Chances are you have seen this all over Instagram on everyone from your favorite bloggers to style icons like the Kardashian and Jenner sisters. I do like this trend on the women that I’ve seen it on but I’m still debating wearing it myself. I mean you really have to make sure that your bikini line is on point! But it is a flattering look for shorter women as the high cut gives the illusion of longer legs. And being only 5″ tall I’ll take whatever extra hight I can get!
To be honest I was a little on the fence about this trend. I’m all for the retro vibes but I didn’t think that a high waisted bikini would be very flattering. Boy, was I wrong! There are so many options when it comes to this look that you’re bound to find something your like. There are more conservative looks like this bikini or you have options with cut out in the bottoms like this one!
Tropical prints are so on trend right now it’s crazy. I tend to shy away from swimsuits with a tropical print because they remind me of my childhood. I remember when I was younger that tropical prints with hibiscus flowers were pretty much the only options for swimsuits. Today, the prints have come a long way and are more modern and updated. Like this one piecethat features flowers and coconuts or this cut out one piece with pineapple prints.
