Swimsuit season is in full swing with so many exciting new swimwear trends and styles. It’s all about cut, color and pattern play this summer in silhouettes that range classic to nouveau. From monokinis and bodychains to spins on the classic swimsuit styles, here are the top five swimwear trends of 2015.
1. High-Neck Crop Tops
Almost every swimwear line has joined the cropped top party. Following the activewear trend that’s been huge in fashion, cropped tops aren’t only stylistically different from the classic two-piece bikini, but are fantastic for those who are active on the beach or need more bust support.
2. The Sexy One-Piece
A one-piece isn’t just for mom anymore. The classic suit is upgraded with sleek silhouettes in slimming solids, standout prints and fashion-forward cutouts that is truly less is more.
3. Tribal Prints
Nothing screams summertime quite like a fun tribal print. Swimwear in colorful geometric designs and motifs are a mainstay on the runway season after season. Whether spotted on a classic bikini or a cutout one-piece, like Agua Clara (above), tribal prints are unique and expressive.
Poolside glamour always evokes images of vintage Hollywood starlets sunbathing with cat-eye sunnies and a cocktail in hand. Embrace your inner siren with the season’s retro-inspired suits in playful polka dots, flirty ruffles and high-wasted cuts.
The boardwalk is the summer runway, and swim-ready accessories that complement your new suit are hotter than ever. Try temporary flash tattoos, chunky necklaces or a simple body chain, like Rihanna above and every other supermodel photographed in a bikini.
