To get you feeling summertime fine, here are 8 swimsuit trends taking over the poolside patios and sandy beaches this summer!
#1. Sporty Spice… or at least sort of!
These suits are active wear inspired. Some maybe not-so-practical and are built strictly for style, others are perfect for getting outside and active! Lululemon just dropped their first swimsuit and surf line this summer. Taking it a step further, buckles and harnesses are adding an extra element of adventurist style to this year’s suits!

The Yacht Week was one heck of an adventure. From fab food, to many bottles of booze, to one broken toe, to the regatta where team SPORTS ran the show, to many sunsets and sunrises on the water, to sailing back in stormy waters, to nonstop singing and a boat full of dancing crazies, to wipe out courses in Bol, and the best gelato I’ve ever devoured, to the many memories made, and the Bird Watchers I won’t ever forget: cheers! TYW2018 is officially in the books and my article on my Croatian sailing adventure is live on the @HOLRMagazine site now!
#2. Straps & Sass:
Straps on straps on straps! Get wet and wild with this super sexy trend. Although maybe not ideal for tanning, these strap-y suits are perfect for hitting up poolside patios, adding an little extra sultriness in the summer.
#3. All about those shoulders:
Whether one-shoulder strapped or off the shoulders completely, this summer we’re saying yes to showing off those sexy shoulders and collar bones. Bieber’s babe, Hailey Baldwin, is “ready for summer” in her cutesy off-the shoulders bikini.
#4. Tie-Front Tops
Whether tied in a knot or tied in a bow, in a bandeau style, cropped top, or tanker suit, Tie-Front tops are taking over the beaches giving off a flirty fun and fabulous feel. Kendall Jenner is seen here in her Kendall & Kylie swimsuit.
#5. Textured Materials:
From Crochet to Velvet, swimsuit companies are playing with different textures to bring you beautiful bathers. Popular Bali-based brand, Andi Bagus, brings you sexy crocheted pieces perfect for sunny paradises.
#6. Vintage Vibes:
Feeling Nostalgic? We’re going back to those classic patterns and giving off a French riviera vibe as stripes, polka dots, and gingham patterns are making their way back IN! Olivia Culpo does it perfectly in this frilly and flirty number, pairing it with white vintage styled sunnies.
#7. High Waist, High Cut, & High Class:
This year is all about accentuating the curves and high waist bikini bottoms are the perfect way to do so. This flattering swimsuit style is both sexy and typically provides a little more coverage, hugging your body in all the right places.
To further show off those curves, high-cut bottoms are seen everywhere thanks to popular swimwear and lingerie brand Gooseberry Seaside. This style elongates the legs and looks oh-so chic!
Kourtney Kardashian has been flooding our feeds in fabulous swimsuits while on her Italy retreat! Here she is rocking this trend and adding some side-boob into the mix. Also, can we take a second to appreciate her adorable daughter in a matching white two-piece – what a cute duo!
#8. Mix it up!
Don’t be afraid to mix and match trends like our girl Shay Mitchell, playing with stripes, high waist bottoms, and a front-tie top. Remember confidence is key when rocking your swimsuit so find your style and ROCK IT your way!
