Summer is approaching quickly and that means that soon it will be time to head for the beach. It also means that you will have to get new swimwear. Like every other year there are new trends in the world of swimwear this summer, there are also some old ones that have remained in style. If you are going to get swimwear that looks good this summer you are going to have to know what those trends are.
The main trend in swimwear for this year is a mix of colours, bright colours in particular. Swimwear that is one solid colour has gone out of style instead the trend is towards things like floral patterns or animal prints. Prints that have an eclectic mix of colours are the most popular ones. That being said at the same time there is also a trend towards a basic white swimsuit. Other colours are considered out of style but white is in right now.
The other big trend in swimwear this summer is a retro look. Most of the top swimwear makers have introduced lines this year that were clearly inspired by the swimwear of the past. It is of course updated for the modern world but the retro influence is pretty strong. Part of that retro look is that bikinis this year tend to cover up more than they have in recent years. There is not nearly as much skin shown with these retro suits as there has been in the last few years.
The trend to cover up more and show less skin has also resulted in the one piece suit regaining a lot of popularity. That being said the one piece suits that are currently in style do tend to show quite a bit of skin, almost as much as the current line of bikinis. There are actually quite a few different styles of one piece suits on the market right now so you will be able to find the perfect one to suit your body type.
One last trend that has been around for a few years now but which remains popular is swimwear that has been inspired by lingerie. This is something that you will see in both one piece and two piece swimwear and the influence is pretty obvious. This is a trend that has been developing in fashion in general over the last few years so it should not come as a huge surprise that it has become popular in swimwear.
This summer there are several different trends when it comes to swimwear, some of which seem to be complete opposites. That means that no matter what your choice of style or your body type you will be able to find something that you like and that looks good on you but which is still in style.
