It’s that time of the year again: bikini season! Well, not only bikinis – you can also choose from maillots, tankinis, swimdresses and rashguards for your swimwear. Apart from the cut, choices are also endless for embellishments, fabrics and prints. This season is seeing a lot of vintage-inspired designs like belted, ribbed and polka-dotted versions, which make swimwear cuter than ever. Get ready to hit the beach in style!
In some of the latest designs, lace-ups and grommets go hand-in-hand on the bosom to show off the cleavage. You can also look for other cute accents like belts, buttons, drawcords, lace trim, knots and ties. Between all these, belted versions should really be on your radar. Get a maillot with a fabric belt fully equipped with a buckle and grommets, and you’re a winner at the beach!
Polka dots never go out of style. Use the pattern wisely to balance your proportions. Go for a bright dotted top and plain black bottoms if you’re pear-shaped and vice versa. A dotted bustier top matched with high-waist bottoms, pin-up style, is both fun and figure-flattering.
The world still hasn’t gotten over the off-shoulder trend. When fused with on-trend elements like ruffles, smocking and puff sleeves, the off-shoulder neckline creates a truly sweet and feminine silhouette.
One-shoulder designs are another retro inspiration, and more demure and figure-friendly than the off-shoulder. The asymmetric cut is suitable for almost any body shape. When combined with strategic cutouts and knotting, it can alter your shape dramatically.
Woven fabrics are a major trend for this season’s swimwear. Go retro with a rib-knit, smocked, seersucker or a crocheted swimsuit.
Scalloping ups the sweetness of your swimwear easily without sacrificing comfort. Like ruffles, it helps add volume wherever your body needs it.
These necklines are for those eager to show off their gifted bodies and all the work they put in at the gym. The plunging neckline helps streamline the body to create an hourglass figure.
