My Favourite Swimwear Trends

Summer is nearly here and I am ready! Does the sun not just change your mood instantly? I get so motivated to just do shit and be healthy and I love it. But one thing I love most about summer is it’s swimwear season! Slowly but surely I am becoming a huge swimwear hoarder, I just love them all. Our old friend Pinterest doesn’t help either. And it usually results in 1am ASOS orders…can you blame me? The swimwear trends this year are calling my name, so here are my favourite swimwear trends for the summer!


I never thought I could pull this off. Not with my little legs and pretty non-peachy peach. But I’ve come to adore this trend. It can make a basic one piece or bikini that little bit spicier, and it’s super flattering. If you want that long legged look definitely give these a go!


I kind of love that sportier looks are coming back a bit. You can still get them with a bit of edge or detail to it, to make them fitting for the pool party. But personally I’m into a bit of classic black, thicker strapped sport style. It gives me massive Baywatch vibes. (however you won’t fine me running slow motion of a beach…I 100% would end up on the ground with sand in places I definitely do not want sand…)


Again, one style I didn’t think would be me, being a member of the itty bitty titty committee. But one that has grown on me. Maybe not one to go diving in, but perfect for a day at the beach or a pool party. The plunge elongates your torso for a really flattering look! You can also use them as bodysuits for an everyday outfit whilst on holiday.


Okay cutout swimwear trips me out every so slightly. But I do the concept. Sometimes going full out with a bikini can be daunting so a cut out is a really nice middle  ground. It’ll be super flattering and make you feel like the queen you are!

Again, not one to do any extreme water sports in. Or any water sports for that matter. But a very cute pick for the beach. So long as you don’t mind a bit of sideboob. This is more of trend from last year that I’m holding onto in this year, but for a sassy n’ spicy pick for the pool or your holidays, this is a must!

Now I just want to spend the rest of my days in swimwear by the beach eating watermelon…

But here are my top picks! What are your favourite trends this year?

    I’m not really one to wear or even have the chance to wear swimwear but I am loving the sporty’n’sleek and the plunge trend. Not sure if I could actually pull them off though ^^

      I get that, for someone who lives in the middle of nowhere in the UK where there’s barely a chance to wear swimwear (unless is in a river haha!), I own a lot of swimwear! You could definitely pull them off lovely!! xx

    I’m more of a the best coverage as possible kind of person. Tankinis offer the most flexibility for me personally

      That’s fair enough, I used to be a big tankini person too! xx

    I love bikinis and prefer them over a one piece and I like bright colours, tropical prints too.

    lots of good choices here, this year for me will be a maternity costume, which sadly doesn’t offer much variety

      Aww well congrats lovely!! That’s such a good point they should definitely offer more variety!

    Some great choices there. Only problem with the full suit is TAN LINES lol. Prefer a cheeky number for maximum tan coverage.

    Loving all the latest swimwear trends I am seeing especially now that its summer time and a holiday is long overdue. The scoop back is what I would personally order for myself.

    Oh my swimwear style is most definitely coverup! I have a lovely flabby belly and legs since having kids so cover up is for me! Wish I could pull off some of these though. They’re stunning!
