The Swimwear Trend Guide

by Ashley Ng, Fashion News Correspondent

With summer just around the corner, the search for the best swimwear is on. Though we’re headed straight for finals season, that doesn’t stop us from searching for new, stylish clothes and swimwear for our impending vacations. Priorities, right? Getting your hands on the ultimate beach-worthy suit is sometimes overwhelming, but you’ll find that this season’s swimwear is a re-christened version of your favorite warm-weather trends. Make that effortless transition from wet to dry by embracing the overlapping styles in swimwear and spring attire.

Lace-Up

Lace-up tops are everywhere. With their chic and sexy appearance, it’s no surprise everyone is wearing them. Avoid blending in by selecting vibrant spring colors like light blue and coral. This gorgeous scoop-top swimsuit from Victoria’s Secret plays with fun patterns and it’s reversible! This coral shirt complements the bikini with its matching tassels and pairs effortlessly with white shorts.

High Neck, High Waist

The high-waist trend has been around for a couple of years, but its return this season proves that it’s here to stay. This high-neck, high-waist duo from Aerie is perfect for anyone looking for a sporty vibe. Though the front may appear simple, the eye-catching crisscrossed back adds flair to its minimalistic design. For a fun night out, switch over to this burgundy floral crop top and a pair of hip-hugging leather shorts.

Tropical Prints

There’s nothing more satisfying than having an outfit that matches your destination. In these tropical prints, you’ll be sure to stand out regardless of whether you’re on the beach or exploring the town. This swimsuit’s deep v-neck and open back counter the conservative narrative of one-pieces. For an equally bold outfit, try this two-piece floral suit by Zara; dropped shoulders and floral patterns always add a feminine touch to loose pants.

Crochet

These may not be your grandma’s knit blankets, but you’ll still want to show them off. The intricate details that go into crafting each pattern make these pieces especially unique. Plus, the texture is perfect for warmer weather. There’s no doubt these romantic looks will make the awkward tan lines completely worth it!

Tie-Dye

Sun and tie-dye are the best reminders that summer is right around the corner. This cobalt bikini has a simple structure, but its smocked design adds a playful touch to the tie-dye pattern. An equally lovable symmetric two-piece is the perfect swap for evening strolls on the beach.
