Finding the perfect swimsuit is difficult, but knowing the trends can help you to decide what style you might want to try this year. From flirty one-pieces to barely-there bikinis, these swimsuit trends are ready to be worn in the sun—or under an umbrella, if that’s more your speed.
1. Long-Sleeved Bikini
Play with symmetry this spring and summer and try a long-sleeved swimsuit. Whether it’s a bikini or one piece, you’re sure to look cute —while also protecting your arms from harmful sun rays. It’s a win/win situation, really. Plus, you might end up looking like a cool surfer girl. And who doesn’t want that?
2. Floral trend
What’s more classically spring than florals? Let your swimsuit be the garden of your dreams with floral one-pieces, tankinis, bikinis—You name it. There are all kinds of truly groundbreaking ways to done florals this season, so go ahead and try something unexpected. It’s hard to go wrong with chic florals.
3. Itty Bitty Bottoms
If you’re itching for a truly all-over tan, you can’t go wrong with the tiny bikini bottom trend for spring and summer 2020. Try a bikini bottom that ties at the side for a fun (and easily removable) look. And remember: Every body is a bikini body!
4. High-Waisted bottoms
Back for 2020 is the classic high-waisted bikini. This is one of my personal favorites, and I’m glad it’s staying in style for the new season. This trend lets you achieve major vintage vibes—and is available in so many chic variations. You’ll be wearing these babies all summer long.
5. Orange Swimwear
Like the prettiest sunset, orange hues will rule your spring and summer. 2020 is sure to bring so many gorgeous orange swimsuits in myriad styles, so you can grab whichever ‘suits’ you and go. Just don’t be surprised if people don’t see you as you blend into the sun setting in the sky.
6. cut-out swimsuits
Bare it all this year, babes. Spring and summer 2020 is bound to be chock-full of cut-out swimsuits. Whether it’s a bikini or one-piece, you’re sure to see a lot of extra skin at the beach. This trend shows itself in so many ways, too, so the cut-out can be in the midsection, on the sides or somewhere else!
7. Animal print
Once again, bold animal prints reign. If you’ve got an animal print swimsuit from summer 2019, you can get even more use out of it in 2020. From leopard print to snake print, there are so many adorable ways to wear this trend.
8. Floss swimsuit
In a relatively unexpected twist, floss swimsuits are still thriving. Think bikinis and one-pieces that feature extra string detail—like dental floss, in case you didn’t see the connection at first—and are inherently skimpy .
9. Belted swimsuits
One of the absolute biggest trends you’ll see this summer is the belted swimsuit. You can match the belt to the swimsuit or be bold and pattern clash. Either way, it’s a seriously cute trend you must try before you hit the beaches.
