Whether you’re a bikini girl or one-piece wonder, check out these top trends for summer swimwear.



  1. Think citrus This summer is all about zesty orange shades. If you can’t face full-on zing, opt for softer tangerine or peach. Hate orange? Turquoise is your next go-to colour.
  2. Less is more Cut-outs and slashes – from missing sides, slashed tops and deep Vs – are everywhere. Alternatively go for bondage-style multi-straps, snaking in a criss-cross across your body.
  3. Big pants Vintage style is right on trend and high-waisted bikini bottoms de rigueur.
  4. Sport sporty Emphasise your fitness credentials with a sleek athletic look.
  5. Deep dive Plunging necklines feature heavily on one-pieces, often with lace-up detailing at the front. Lace-up sides are popular too.
  6. Flower power If florals are your thing, look out for some delicious darker colour mixes out there this season.
  7. Swish factor Shimmer and shake with fringes and ruffles, either on your cossie or your cover-up. They’ll make you feel flirty and feminine.
  8. Stripes This perennial favourite never really goes away, and this year you can pick from high-contrast black and navy or subtle white and tan.
  9. One-piece wows Yep, they’re swimsuits, and in a single colour too, but not as you know them. This summer, the shape’s the story with interesting necklines, ultra-high legs and cut-away tums.
  10. Surprise style For a totally different vibe, consider long-sleeved swimwear – a trend several fashion houses are following. Or be even more dramatic in ultra-thin leather. Mix it with mesh or other fabrics to get heads turning!
