When days grow longer, temperatures warm and snow gives way to grass and flowers once again, it can only mean one thing. Summer is on its way! Unfortunately, if you are like most women this can mean one of the most dreaded tasks of all is near at hand…that of picking a new summer swimsuit or beachwear outfit. Don’t worry, we have you covered. This year, you won’t have to stress or fret, because the following will tell you all you need to know in order to look amazing when visiting the beach, the neighborhood pool or even your own backyard this year:
2018 Swimsuit Trends Via Travel & Leisure
1. Frills and Ruffles
This retro-inspired look was big last year but has made another great showing in this year’s trending swimsuits. Think ultra feminine, 1950s pinup girl look to get an idea of what this is about. These aren’t tiny bikinis but swimwear with substance made for women with real bodies and voluptuous curves.
2. Graphic Neons
Likely also inspired by times gone by, these swimsuits are another example of taking something we loved from the past and making it better. The styles featured on these suits have a noticeably 90s feel but with a modern twist. You will certainly stand out on the beach when sporting any of these suits.
3. Geometric Inspiration
These suits are geometrically interesting and look almost like a piece of art draped across your body. They might make for some interesting tan lines, though so make sure you coat yourself extra good with sunscreen.
Bonus Content: Don’t Forget to Accessorize
It isn’t only swimwear you need to think about when putting together a beach-ready look. You also have to accessorize well, with the following pieces according to Elle:
A great pair of sandals can make your look. Try a sandal with a little flash and dazzle, such as fake pearls for a beach look that transitions well into the cocktail hour.
You can also try the non-shoe sandal for the beach itself.
Another accessory you must remember is a great pair of earrings. Don’t lose them in the pool or ocean though! Take them off before taking a dip.
A great look that goes from beach to bar is a wrap around skirt and knotted crop top.
Incorporate the above trends into your summer attire to ensure you look amazing at the beach this year.
