Top Bathing Suit TrendsJun 23, 2017
It seems every summer arrives without warning, and without enough prep time to get everything you need to enjoy its long, lazy days. When it comes to a bathing suit, you could just pull out your old standard black bikini that you've had since 1997, but that's boring! Try one of the exciting new trends in swimwear, and liven up your beach and poolside wardrobe.
Top swimwear trends for 2017:
Halters - You know you used to rock a halter top eons ago. Well, the same flattering cut gets a swimwear makeover. The high neck on a halter bikini is universally flattering, not to mention supportive, which is a godsend for the larger gals among us. The increased coverage also ensures that nothing will accidentally pop out when you're leaning over, or playing with your kids.
Tassels - Ole! At least that's what you'll be saying when you sport one of these festive bikinis that feature colorful tassels that dangle anywhere from the bikini top to the daring bottom. Consider them a party in a bathing suit. Caution: We recommend this style only for the daring among us.
Cut-outs - One-pieces with generous side cut-outs were all the rage during Miami Swim Week 2017. While we may not recommend this style if you're self-conscious about your waist, if you've been cranking out those crunches, wear this style with pride!
Straps to the max - Found everywhere from one-pieces to bikinis and everything in between, this summer, you'll find straps galore. Multiple straps adorn hips, chests, abs, and even legs. The trickiest part is getting into a scrappy suit, but once you're in, lay back and enjoy the attention.
Pick one or more of these bathing suit trends and get ready to attract admiring glances. And if you're not as body confident as you'd like to be, just throw on an sarong or coverup. Tell us, what are your favorite bathing suit styles?
