Tis the season! Swimsuit season that is. Time to pull out those bikinis, one-pieces and monokinis for the summer. Finding the perfect swim gear that is on-trend and flattering to a woman’s body can be quite the task. We’re here to help you out! The Fashion Bomb Daily team has compiled a list of the 24 on-trend swimsuits you need this season.
Let’s kick it off with yours truly… Marsha B.
Because I’m probably about 75% bikini ready, the Seychelles cut-out hip and open back swimsuit is perfect for shielding those undesirable areas.
You can’t talk swimwear without mentioning Mara Hoffman! The designer has a thing for intricate designs and patterns and I’m here for it! Make a bold statement with her colorful surfsuit.
Boudoir inspired swimwear? Yes please! Not sure if I’m brave enough to pull this off but I admire the woman who can!
Passing the baton to Esmesha…
Esmesha’s first pick comes from Boohoo.com. She states, “Never underestimate the power of a one-piece! With trendy cutouts (in strategic ares) and a sultry design, this pick is perfect for your upcoming pool soireés!”
“It looks like the Jenner clan has ventured into the realm of swimwear. Check out some of their dope designs (including this blazing animal print set) at Topshop right now!”
Esmesha’s last pick was this festive suit by Lee + Lani. “If you’re up for the splurge, this statement-making flamingo one-piece is a fun way to wow onlookers as you soak up the sun.” Love it!
Moving on to Ashley…
Ashley picked her must-have swimsuits based on her body type. She stated, “These two swimsuits were chosen because of my fitness frame. I workout and train to compete in bikini competitions which call for a defined but curvaceous figure ( think #fitThick). This also means that because of my low body fat percentage I have to find bikini options that flatter my moderately sized rack. The first option is a show-piece for the body that I’ve worked hard to build, while the second option more resembles a top I’d wear to the gym. It’s a suit that is comfortable with the sex appeal of side-boob, since I don’t have much cleavage.” Get into her choices from Asherah Swimwear and Nasty Gal.
On to Jamé!
Jamé went for something a different! “I love this swimsuit set because it sports sex appeal WHILE offering a bit of cover up. I’m not always 100% willing to show off all the goodies, so this is a great in between for those days.”
“Okay…I’m a definite high waist kind of gal. This set is super cute and the high waist feature helps for all of us with a little tummy going on. Plus this pink/lavender shade is totally cute.” I feel you Jamé, I’m a sucker for a cute high waist suit as well!
“So I’m definitely a classic woman for this. There is NOTHING I love more than a great red swimsuit. Low-cut, cut out back, sexy and covered. Who said one pieces can’t be sexy?” This is giving me, throwback Bay Watch vibes. Hot!
Up next, Danielle!
Danielle is completely into the Lace-up trend which is the reason for her choice. Definitely on trend with a hint of sexy!
Danielle’s last pick is from House of CB. Shes drawn to this suit because, “the vibrant color gives me south beach Miami vibes.”
The Missguided US Strappy Crossback bikini is a popular choice among the Fashion Bomb Staff. Both Gisselle and Danielle went for this piece with Danielle citing the subtle lace detail as her favorite part of the suit while Gisselle felt you should, “Dare to bare — just a tad!”
Speaking of Gisselle…
“Get saucy in this statement stripe swimsuit with removable straps and a deep scoop back. I’ll rock this look with a bold red pout for a full on vintage vibe. Love!” A vintage inspired suit is always great to have. You can build a whole wardrobe theme around your suit.
“White is hot all summer long! I’m all here for the sexy cut-outs and plunge front detail. Add some temporary Flash Tattoos and it’s a style wrap!” White is forever the statement color for the summer. You simply can’t go wrong!
On to Faith.
“I’m all about the one-piece! A deep v-neck, low back, and cheeky bottom are the ways I like to show skin with my swimsuits as an all-in-one is typically pretty covered. And it’s either bold color or no color: once that tan kicks in, neon looks amazing on glowing skin!” Talk about subtly sexy!
Looks like Faith has a thing for bold colors! “Another bright one-piece! You can never go wrong with styles like this because they’re simple and can last in your wardrobe forever if they’re great quality.”
“Are you sensing a trend here? The mesh on this swimsuit gives it a bit of a sporty vibe, which I love,” says Faith. You can never go wrong with a black suit and a plunging neckline!
We saved the best for last! Our Editor-in-Chic, Claire Sulmers, offers her top picks for the swimsuit season.
“I love all white in the summer and this is a super cute option!” Get yourself a white suit, you’ll be right on trend.
“You can never go wrong with Norma Kamali and this mesh option is a sexy update on a classic.” Definitely a classic and also shape-friendly to a woman with curves!
“Always know your colors! Army green is always a good choice for me and this lace up detail is on trend.” Words of wisdom. The right color will make you look 10 times better in your swimsuit.
“Mara Hoffman is always a must for swimwear. She comes out with new colors and patterns each season that are hard to pass up!”
Doesn’t it feel great to have options? We dropped some gems and gave you something for everyone. Whether you like to cover it up, or bare it all; go bold or rock a solid; off-the-shoulder, straps and lace-ups; you’ll definitely find the perfect suit just for you! Happy Shopping!
