Swimsuit Trends of the Summer
With the swift approach of the hottest time of the year, the need for beach trips and pool days are inevitable. With that being said, don’t be caught poolside without some of this season’s trendy swimsuits. Luckily, we are currently in the midst of an exceedingly creative style era so it is almost impossible to veer off the path toward modern fashion.
The new black is no black. This season is all about color. Bright, neon colors that stand out in any setting make any beach outfit stylish. Forever 21 has an array of vibrant bathing suits ranging from all ends of the color wheel, for inexpensive prices.
High Waisted Swimsuit
They say fashion always comes full circle. Well, here’s the proof. The swimsuits donned by the infamous Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn are making a fierce comeback. This 50’s inspired swimsuit can be worn with a modern flair, or in a more vintage fashion. They can be seen on icons such as Beyonce and Katy Perry. Your grandmother will adore the subtle tribute to her youth.
Prints are a great way to showcase your style in a bold way. With tons of styles to choose from, it is easy to find one that is tailored to your tastes. Kendall and Kylie Jenner, who are this year’s youngest style icons, have been spotted in these eclectic ensembles on numerous occasions. This daring swimsuit trend is great for stepping out of the box without taking too much of a courageous leap.
The cut-out swimsuit is great for almost anybody. It’s a way to wear a one piece without looking or feeling like a frumpy soccer mom. It’s subtly sexy and you can proudly flaunt any part of your body you please, while concealing any parts you may want to keep hidden.
Mix and Match
The best thing about this season’s swimsuit trends is the flexibility. You can mix and match colors with prints, solids with solids, etc. Matching is a thing of the past. It’s 2014 and times are changing! Abandon your old fashion laws because they are outdated. Can’t find the cheetah bottoms that go with your favorite cheetah bikini top? No worries. Wear the stripes and turn heads while doing it.
Men Swimsuit Trends
Men have it easier; their trends tend to remain pretty stagnant. However, this year there is a slight change. According to SouthFlorida.com, men are wearing closer fitting swim trunks to establish a more tailored silhouette. Their swimwear is tighter, bolder, and brighter, much like the ladies bathing suits. So when you’re out shopping for your annual beach trip or just an afternoon at the pool, don’t stress yourself out over trends and style rules.
This year’s swimsuit trends are very relaxed and carefree. Summer is a fun season, and this year it is accompanied by some fun looks as well.
