It's been a long time since I've actually looked forward to swimsuit season. I've been taking 4 CYC classes a week during their Spring Into Change Challenge (see my interview on their blog here) and it's fun to see hard work starting to pay off. Bring on the stand up paddleboarding on the lake! I'm no model, but I've been working really hard to feel more fit!
It seems like for the first time in a while there are some really fun new swim silhouettes beyond the ordinary triangle string bikini. I'm sharing my favorite swim picks and three of my favorite trends to help you channel your inner beach babe! The halter bikini, rashguard & bustier bikini borrow from fashion runways and classic surf culture and are all huge trends for this summer.
Top 3 Swimwear Trends for the Beach Babe
Halter Bikini Top: This high neck style is a bit more of a sporty silhouette than a string bikini. It's perfect for smaller chested ladies & a great way to show off fun patterns.
Rashguards: This surfing inspired trend can be equal parts functional and fashionable. It offers extra sun protection during water sports, but also comes in fashion forward print options!
Bustier Bikini Top: This balconette style offers some additional support with undirewires and a corset-like structure. Perfect for bustier girls looking for a swimsuit style!
1. Hawaiian Print Bustier Top | 2. Embroidered Bustier Top | 3. Desert Bloom Bikini | 4. Let Go Deco Bikini
Other swimwear trends I'm loving are high waisted bottoms, cutout one pieces & floaty kimono jacket cover-ups.
