We may be within the depths of the dark and cold winter months, but that doesn’t stop us dreaming about the perfect swimwear for our next vacation. The summer months just seem to be better. The weather gets warmer, the days are longer, and finally we’re able to stop yearning for the chance to shop for the ideal swimwear, and instead, actually go out and get it! Although the spring/summer swimwear range has not yet hit stores, that doesn’t mean you can’t get to know the top swimwear trends for 2017!
Lace One Piece Swimsuits
Lace one pieces seem to be at the top of every store’s wish list for the 2017 spring/ summer season. They are influenced by the idea of destination weddings, as so many couples in recent years have opted for this type of wedding. This idea perfectly combines weddings and summery swimwear, which gives an effortless honeymoon feel to the pieces. The swimwear comes in many different styles, such as both double and single swimsuits, halter tops, off the shoulder suits, and styles that will make you look either super sexy, or give you a bit more coverage if you desire. This style of swimwear is perfect for romantic getaways and simply lounging about under the sun.
Want to add a little bohemian chic to your beach days? Why not consider tasseled swimwear? These designs add intricacy and flare to the swimsuit, both in and out of the water. This style of swimwear comes mainly as a bikini, however the main designs include string bikini, halter neck and crop top. These are perfect for both beach parties back home and for vacations a little further afield.
The Crop Top
A style that has been in fashion for a couple of seasons now is the crop top bikini. This style can work for a number of people. Whether you’re thin and sporty, average or plus sized, it works for all body types and looks just as good as the next! This style of swimwear is only available as a bikini, but comes in many different styles and colors, such as nude, florescent and combat. It also can come with strategic cut outs, that complement the body shape, or sheer paneling, that gives an effortlessly sexy vibe. These bikinis are perfect for barbeques on the beach and domestic family vacations.
Low Cut Singles
These designer one piece swimsuits are perfect for that first getaway with your new partner. This swimwear is beyond sexy and a little x rated. It will excite your partner and have others dying to be with you! This is easily one of the sexiest spring/summer 2017 trends on the runway, and will certainly be a swimsuit for the more daring among you. The deep V-neck has transferred from the clothing trend to swimwear, and it’s a style that has been going strong within clothing for a while now, so will be in full bloom when the swimwear hits the shelves.
Shades of Nude
The nude shade has been one of the biggest colors in 2016 for cosmetics. Now the swimwear industry has taken it for a spin, nude swimwear was all over the runway for the spring/summer 2017 Miami swim week! This style looks best in string bikinis, deep V-necklines, high on the hip-cut one pieces, and push up style bikinis, so let your hair down and you’ll become a nature goddess. This style is especially good if you love showing skin, but still want to keep hold of a little modesty. If you like attention, definitely go for this color and you’ll have all the heads turning.
Halter Neck Bikinis
Halter neck bikinis have dominated the spring/summer 2017 runways! The halter neck style is very versatile and can be found in both bikini and one-piece swimwear. Sheer panels and crochet cutouts have enabled this style to break on through into the swimwear world. While before it was seen as a very conservative design, these changes have given this style of swimwear a more ‘risqué’ approach. This style is perfect for just lounging about by the pool or the beach!
Different Cover Ups
Usually, if you want to cover up on the beach you just grab your sarong, but now designers have come up with some cover ups that are a little more creative. Styles such as the boho chic lacy halter dress, sheer pants and open weave tops are the top players in this field!
