It’s almost here! Summer that is! And we all know what that means…swimsuit season is upon us! With the new season come new fashion trends and styles for you to pick from. I am here to share with you some of the hottest trends this 2014 summer season!
Long Line Bikinis
- This hot trend is a blend of the old and the new (and it 100 percent fabulous). The top is where the name comes from. It is less revealing than a standard bikini because it extends down further below the bust than a standard bikini. For those of us who prefer just a bit of modesty this swimsuit season, this is the suit for us! From crop tops to balconets, there’s a little something for everyone in this trend for 2014.
Strappy and Sporty
- This season is all about bold statements. After all isn’t that what summer is all about? The sporty look is back in this year and along with it a love of straps. Bikini tops reminiscent of sport tops and sports bras and cris-crossed and under-the-bust extra straps add an element of fun to this sporty look. Look for these suits in bold and bright colors and patterns, or with mesh and sporty zippers, and give this sporty look a try. You don’t have to be an athlete to have their style!
Cutouts in Your One-Piece
- One-piece swimsuits usually get a bad rap, but not this year. 2014 is the year of the one-piece! Cutouts are the big, bold style choice in swimwear this year. Some of us prefer to be a little bit more covered than a bikini allows us to be. This is where the one-piece comes in. But let’s face it, the one-piece can be pretty one-dimensional and boring. The trend this year combats that. Strategic cutouts allow you to reveal more skin than your standard one-piece, but let you still cover up what you don’t want shown. Large and small cutout designs are available.
- Have you always wanted to embrace your inner surfer? Well whether you actually surf or not, surf-wear is the style of the season! The long-sleeved tops (paired with adorable bikini bottoms to match of course) offer the best of both worlds. They give you more sun protection that your standard suits. And for those of us prone to sunburns, you can’t ask for much more. Plus you look like the surfer you always wanted to be! Maybe you’ll even hop on a board! And you can always strip down to the classic bikini if the mood strikes you.
These are the boldest and best swimsuit fashion trends of 2014. There is definitely something for everyone here! For those who like to make bold statements and show some skin, cutouts and strappy/sporty bikinis are the name of the game! For those who prefer to cover up a bit, we have the long line bikinis and the rash guards. So gear up for summer and enjoy! Summer 2014 is going to be stylish and awesome!
