With spring/summer being in full swing, it’s time to squeeze your booty into a sexy piece of swimwear.
With so many trends, cuts and colours out there, it’s hard to pick which one will really suit you. The best thing to do is to try a few different styles and colours and pick the ones that best suit your body shape and make you feel confident.
When it comes to your bikini or swimsuit, you should always go for something bold and bright or something that really creates a statement. This season has some amazing bikinis, with a mix of fabrics and prints and cuts and colours.
Check out our favourite top 6 trends that you will absolutely love!
Trend #1 – Sporty Chic
Moschino – Logo-Print Bandeau Bikini Set: £90.00
Bringing back the nautical trend, this Moschino bikini set combines 3 different trends in one. The sporty cuts and style will keep you up to date with the latest trends and the cute pastel colours on the back will keep your bikini looking cool and chic. Moschino is definitely the designer for you if you are looking for something different that really creates a statement.
Elastic bikinis are definitely the one if you are after the sporty chic look. This bikini from Hot!MeSS will really create a statement and you will no doubt stand out at all of those pool parties! The mix of colours is perfect for the SS15 look and it is effortlessly funky.
Trend #2 – Cut Out/Tie Up
Agent Provocateur – Mazzy Popstar Cutout Swimsuit: £225
Agent Provocateur’s bandage-style mazzy swimsuit is bold but flattering – the neon-pink, orange and turquoise cutouts frame your waist and hips. Boned sides ensure it is supportive, too. Match it up with some elegant accessories to really get the most out of this gorgeous cutout swimsuit.
Tie up bikinis are definitely on the SS15 hot list and these printed lace-up bottoms from StaySick are amazing. The best thing about StaySick is that you can match up different tops and bottoms (or even swimsuits) and get them customised in the print and colour you prefer. So, if you’re looking for funky custom swimwear, then you really don’t need to look any further! (The printed lace-up bottoms also have a matching printed lace-up top)
Trend #3 – Prints and Patterns
Triangl – Poppy Blue Crush: $89.00
Neoprene bikinis are all the range this summer, and I don’t think there is a single fashion conscious person out there that hasn’t heard of Triangl bikinis. They look great and really do create a statement. This Poppy bikini in blue crush is bold and electric and features one of SS15’s favourite swimwear colours – neon yellow.
This diamond Aztec bikini from ASOS features a rugged and bold take on the standard bikini. The Aztec print creates a statement all on its own, and mixed with the added strap detail on the top and the bottoms, this bikini will stand out no matter where you go.
Trend #4 – Classic Bandeau and Triangle
Eres – Paint Show Bandeau Bikini: £270
Eres’ paint show bikini has a brush stroked paint effect and looks effortlessly elegant. If you’re not comfortable enough to experiment with really bright colours or cuts, then this bikini is perfect for you. It’s a great classic that can be worn time and time again.
If you’re confused about what style of bikini to go for, then it is always safe to stick to the classic triangle bikini. The triangle cut has always been in style and it is something that you can wear over and over again. This mint green bikini from H&M matches both simplicity and style in one, perfect for that hot holiday abroad.
Trend #5 – High Neck/High Waist
Mara Hoffman – Reversible Printed Racerback Bikini: £210
If you’re looking for something bold, bright and funky, then look no further. This stunning bikini from Mara Hoffman combines edgy prints and daring cuts. Be a little brave and go for something that will definitely create a statement on your next holiday.
Nothing says chic like a high waisted bikini set. If you want to add some glam to your poolside look but don’t want to wear a swimsuit, then a pair of high waisted bikini bottoms are perfect for you. This River Island floral bikini screams summer and the floral print compliments the cut of the bikini perfectly.
Trend #6 – Sophisticated Style
Tory Burch – Lipsi Colour-Block Swimsuit: £200
If you’re trying to add a little glam to your poolside outfit, then this colour block swimsuit from Tory Burch will be the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe. Be sure to match it up with some bold gold accessories for the perfect sophisticated look.
White is definitely the colour to go for this summer, because it pairs up perfect with bright accessories. You will be the centre of attention in this gorgeous fishnet swimsuit. It features detachable halterneck straps, meaning you can create two totally different looks with it.
No matter what kind of colour, cut or style of bikini you go for, make sure you feel comfortable in what you wear and make sure you bring sexy to the poolside!
