It’s All About Sun, Sea & Surf!
Of all the trending topics in the fashion world, swimwear has taken the market by storm this year. This era has seen designers experimenting with bikini sets to full sleeved styles. While some styles have been repeated like ruffles, but some have been introduced such as bandeau tops.
Listing all the styles will fill pages up, so, I am just counting the ones that have taken my fancy.
The Long Sleeved Show
For many of us, swimwear is all about more of skin show and less of cloth. But, in 2016 comes the long sleeved swimsuits, which have taken many fashions giants by surprise. These long sleeved crop tops have been combined with bikini panties to give you the classy yet chic look. Repeated from 2015 trend, this year the only difference that has caught my eye is the abstract and boho prints. Also, colours have been combined together giving this type of swimwear a new look.
Back to the 1970s style, the fringe became a waning look in 2015, but is back with bang in this year’s trends. With colourful fringes added to the lower bustline to panty line, the designers have done it all. I also found some contrast colours being added to the fringes, which was a definite good idea. But, one style that grabbed my attention was the triangles hanging from the cups with sequined fringes doing a jazzy dance step on the midriff.
The Bandeau Connection
Ahhh! One of my favourites, the bandeau collection was the biggest highlights of this year’s trends. Hats off to the designer who came up with the idea of combining a strapless bandeau with bikinis! Completely without support on the shoulders from straps and twisting material, the bandeau tops have been combined in different colours and styles. White strips, blue lines, enclosures with opened ties on the sides and abstract prints are some of the main features of this style. What caught my eye? Has to be the stringy patterns on the bodice of the bandeau and bikini panty!
Well, I have tried listing some of the trends of swimsuits in 2016. So, check these while online shopping and have a blast in a beach party.
