The new swimsuits of 2014 are using inspiration from previous decades to create hot, modern looks. There’s more fabric, more color and lots to love about this season’s brand-new swimwear.
Want to look in style for this swimsuit season? Watch out for the hot trends of 2014, and let them guide you to finding your new perfect swimsuit. Many of the new styles are more flattering than the skimpy, barely-there designs of the past.
Color: There’s no limit to the colors you can wear to stay trendy this swimsuit season. But if you want to look truly fashionable, stick to multi-colored designs. Patterns are big this year, and more bikinis are detailed with intricate colors and designs. Heavily-beaded and decorated bikinis are everywhere. You’ll also see a lot of colorblock designs that use two or three colors to create a trendy look.
Cut: Tired of those stringy designs of swimsuit seasons past? You’re in luck. This year’s trends use more fabric to create retro bikini looks. Longline bikinis are huge in 2014. Inspired by the looks of the 1950s, longline bikinis give you more coverage across the hips and buttocks. High-waist bikini bottoms are also very trendy, and this style is very forgiving. They’re the perfect option if you want to hide a little extra lower belly fat.
Across the top: Bikini tops have changed, too. Instead of tiny triangles, band designs that come across the chest in a thick strip are more popular. Strapless bikini tops are big this year, and they look harder to wear than they actually are. Many of these new strapless designs also have underwire to give you added support.
What to Wear
The swimsuits of 2014 are more flattering than styles of days gone by, and more suitable to a variety of body types. If you’re less happy with your lower body, a longline bikini may be your best bet. If your belly needs extra coverage, choose a high-waisted design. Pick bright patterns and bold colors. Graphic styles with a lot of different colors are frightening because they seem to demand attention, but this is flattering because they call attention to that parts of your body that are covered instead of those that aren’t.
Get trendy this swimsuit season, and show off your best assets while hiding the ones you’re not so proud of. Retro styles are back, so enjoy it!
