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.
HIGH-WAISTED BIKINIS ☀️
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 : )
