Top Three Swimsuit Trends 2017

Now that it’s May, (hopefully) the season of frigid weather is long gone and 80-degree-and-ice-cream weather is in sight. No matter what your summer plans are, it will probably include hanging out on te beach or by the pool, which means you need a new swimsuit 👙  I like to add some new pieces to my collection every year, and I have never been as excited as I have been this year. High-waisted bottoms and one-pieces are only two of the top trends this year, and I love them because it hides my non-existent abs 😍  This is not a comprehensive list, but they are my favorites this season! Let’s begin.


We wear high-waisted bottoms all the time, and this year high-waisted bikini bottoms are everywhere! I love them because anything high-waisted hides my belly and elongates my legs. This one is very retro with all the polka dots and it fits me perfectly. It is from an Etsy store called First and Oxford, which sells luxury swimwear. The set is very nicely made and feels really good. It hugs me nicely because of the thick material it is made of. You can get 15% off at First and Oxford with code ‘LOVEKIMBER15‘ 😍

One-pieces are also super trendy this season! It covers up the entire belly area, so you can eat as much as you want ; ) The three types of one-pieces that are most popular are high-leg one-pieces, scoop-back one-pieces, and one-pieces with cutouts. I also see a lot of one-pieces with mesh and other interesting materials. I featured this one in a previous post as a bodysuit and am rocking it as a swimsuit here. It has the high-leg detail and a scoop back with criss-cross details. This style comes in many different colors! ASOS also has many other one-piece options and I am eyeing some of them to go on sale so I can buy them : )

Off-the-shoulder tops are also everywhere. You can’t avoid them. So are ruffles! This bikini top combines both trends. These bikini tops are definitely not the most practical, especially if you want to go swimming, but they look cute!. I paired the top with some basic black high-waisted bottoms with criss-cross details on the side. Here is a derpy photo of me with a beach ball because I do not have any other photo that showcases this mix and match set haha. ASOS has a lot of cute off-the-shoulder bikini tops and one-pieces, and the swimwear I have from ASOS are all great quality.

And this wraps up my top three swimsuit trends of 2017! I hope you enjoyed these looks!! These photos were taken during my weekend trip to Atlantic City and I definitely want to go back to relax by the pool. As always, thank you for stopping by : )

    Loving theses suits! My favorite is the cute off-the-shoulder one! I just saw at the end they were taken in AC, I was going to ask if that was Harrah’s pool!

    Gosh I love, love, LOVE the First and Oxford bikini set! So retro! Would have been great to have seen how it looks with your hair up so we can see the shoulders but I can just look at the Etsy store for that. Thanks for the mega tips 💚

      I love it so much too! My hair was covering the red halter straps that are removable, so the top can be wore strapless as well! Very versatile 😍

        That’s what I was wondering. Thanks for clearing that up for me 💚

    YAY for supporting Etsy Stores!! (I may be biased, I’m an Etsy seller myself! lol)

    Great fashions for this years swim wear. I like full costumes and the more material the better for me! Love the retro set though!

    Enjoy the journey!

    I have just purchased my first one piece bathing suit in YEARS this year, but when I saw it I feel instantly in love! So comfortable, brought it on vacation last week!
