Here comes the sun, and with it our favorite clothing season: swim season (maybe that’s why I live in Miami?). If you’re wearing the same two-piece you’ve had since that family beach trip 10 years ago, you might want to consider an upgrade to this 2017 swimwear trends. And whether there’s an upcoming sandy getaway on your calendar, or your just looking for some quality lounge chair time, the approaching season is reason enough to give those suits a refresh.
This year, women are looking for daring beach-ready styles that make a big statement. I’m referring to high-leg silhouettes that cut all the way up the hip and skin-revealing fabrics like mesh and crochet. We can probably thank some of our favorite stars for setting the tone. We’ve seen so many celebs rock thigh-high slits and risqué, sheer fabrics on the red carpet. And those style influences have trickled into swimwear.
Summer is almost here! What could possibly make us happier than booking those warm weather vacations and putting together the perfect outfits to pack for our holidays? I’m giving you a breakdown of the swimsuit trends you can expect to be big in Summer 2017. Here, you’ll find a little something from everyone, from revamps on classic silhouettes to on-trend items that’ll have you standing out from the crowd. Click on, and feel free to dive head-first into a purchase or two, because it’s only swim season for so long, Xx, C.
