2016 Swimsuit Styles: 10 Trends Making a Splash This Summer

Strappy Swimwear

Sexy, strappy swimwear is all the rage right now because it is very attention-grabbing. If you wear a suit like this to the beach, all eyes will definitely be on you! Strappy tops are best paired with high-waisted bottoms so each piece balances out the other for a cohesive look.

Little Black Swimsuits

The LBD is a staple in most women’s closets, and this trend is making its way into the swimsuit world as well. Many women are sporting a little black swimsuit because it’s simple and effortlessly flattering, and you can pair it with virtually any accessories for a classy, put-together look.

High-Necked Bikinis

One of the most popular bikini styles this season is the high-necked bikini, and this modest style is perfect for activities like surfing, which require a little extra coverage. This bikini will provide all the support you need (especially if you have a larger chest) while still being sexy and modern.

Athleisure Swimwear

Athleisure is one of the hottest new springtime trends, so it’s no surprise that sportswear-inspired styles are making their way onto the beach. Some of these styles include sports bra-esque tops, rashguards, and full-coverage bottoms that are both functional and stylish for all activities.

High-Waisted Bikinis

The high-waisted trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, so you should hop on the high-waisted bikini trend for summer! The higher waist provides a bit more tummy control and accentuates your curves, so you can’t go wrong with this trend.

Faux Leather Bikinis

Faux leather doesn’t seem like the obvious option for a swim suit, but this material is actually quite flattering as a bathing suit! This style may not be the best for rigorous white water rafting, but if your summer plans include drinking cocktails by the pool, this could be a great option for you.

Cutout One-Piece Swimsuits

One-piece bathing suits are making a huge comeback this year, and one of the primary reasons is the sexy cutouts that are appearing all over these swimsuits. Cutouts, sometimes covered in mesh, show just the right amount of skin to keep it classy and a little sultry.

Longline Bikinis

Longline bikinis are making a splash this season because they greatly resemble crop tops, another 2016 spring trend! These suits provide a little extra coverage and plenty of fun options, including sexy cutouts, straps, and an ample amount of support.

Floral Prints

Floral is undoubtedly the most popular print of the year because it works for all seasons and goes with a variety of other prints, including stripes and polka dots. Throw a lightweight, striped kimono over a floral bikini, and you will be right on trend this summer.

Orange Hues

The hit Netflix show is right: Orange really is the new black! Many celebrities are rocking bathing suits in a variety of citrus colors because these hues compliment your tan to give you that perfect summer glow. You can find bikinis in every shade from peach to blood orange, so you’ll be sure to find one that matches your skin tone.
