Get ready for summer because the swimsuit just got an upgrade. It’s safe to safe last year was a major bummer which means your previous swimsuit might need new life as 2021 adapts to our new sensibilities.
Maybe it’s because we were stuck in the house for way too long, but 2021s swimsuit offerings are to die for. Designers pulled out all the stops for summer, and the variety of styles available deserve a space in your closet.
From super-soft fabrics to tasteful cutouts and wild prints, it’s time to step up your swimsuit game before you hit the beach or the poolside—enough chit-chat. Let’s get into the eight swimsuit trends that are worth your time and coins in 2021.
The era of the side cutouts is over. Now, keyhole cutouts are here to take over 2021. The design of the cutouts is subtle, and the detail is super flattering to all body types and adds instant style to any piece.
Animal prints have toned down for a more minimalist feel. Like most swimsuits on this list, minimalism as a concept is now the go-to design. Therefore, expect less loud versions of the classic animal print.
Little Black Bikini
If there’s a little black dress, a little black bikini is the next best thing. The color will never do you dirty, no matter the design. However, designers are focusing on creating a higher cut silhouette, so expect some high waited action from your bikini to your one-pieces.
Designers were also quick to add feminine aesthetics into the 2021s swimsuit trends. Think bright and fresh with a hint of the ethereal. Find ruffles making an appearance on necklines, busts, waistlines, and even shoulders into every style and print.
High cuts might be here to stay for the foreseeable future. The 80s trend is facing a revival of sorts, but the cut varies in severity. You can show more skin with a super high cut with less coverage on your booty cheeks or choose one with more coverage. The choice is yours.
A super-soft fabric like our loungewear is kind of hard to get out of, but what would you say to swimwear that is just as comfortable? Take the comfort of your home to the beach in soft textures from your classic bikini, one-piece, or bandeau.
Asymmetry adds instant chic to anything from hair to clothes. Thus it’s not surprising that asymmetrical trends have adapted the style for their collections. These body-hugging pieces will accentuate curves and will make a statement beside any poolside or beachy getaway.
Sculpted swimsuits are here to enhance your figure. Underwire cups in swimsuits are now available and are bound to make your tatas look more flattering. They look incredible due to the dynamic designs that are more pin-up in nature than bra-like.
