A new year of gorgeous swimwear is available and there are definitely some major trends among the bikini brands. High waisted bikinis, fringe, and tassels are so last year as 2015 shows off new styles of crop top swimsuits and intricate tribal print bikinis! Every major swim brand is hitting on the two themes so expect to see it everywhere! Considering how cute they are, we aren’t complaining! Fresh styles of cropped bikini tops with high neck lines are taking swimwear fashion to another level for Summer! Delicate macramé, crochet, and mesh are featured on the high neck bikini top styles alongside bright flashes of color. These must-have bikini tops are definitely worth getting the crazy tan lines! Mix and match them with Brazilian bikinis for a stunning look. The other biggest trend is the widespread use of tribal prints. Zigzag lines and dots, geometric designs, and ethnic patterns are all coming to the party in this tribal print bathing suit trend. We particularly love the way each swimwear brand has chosen a bright or pastel colour palette for their tribal print styles!
High Waisted Pin Up Bikinis with Cut Outs
The retro style combined with the chic modern flair creates the ultimate swimwear style piece. But now these designers are taking it one step further and adding side cut outs to the high waisted bottoms. It creates a very sexy trend when the hips are exposed, and we all know that when it comes to swimwear, sometimes showing the more skin the better.
Ethnic Print Swimwear
This up-and-coming trend is wildly showcased. Ethnic print swimwear uses tribal designs and primitive patterns to take that style up a notch. This year ethnic printed swimwear, which when combined with bright colors and shiny embellishments, really put on quite the swimwear spectacle.
Strappy Bottoms or Caged Bikini Tops
Caged Bikini Tops are one of the hottest trends that we’ve been talking about for months now. Caged bikini tops offer an amazing benefit of covering up a little more of the rib drift, resulting in an elongated torso. This gives the illusion of a thinner, more-toned core, which is something every woman wants to highlight!
Fluttery Flounce Tops
If you’re a gal looking to add volume to the look of your bust, look no further than the trendy “flutter” top. The sweetly ruffled detail will add a cup size or more, and you don’t even need padding! You can find this romantic style on triangle tops, bandeaus, and even one-pieces. The Target swimwear department has loads of this style.
Crop Top Bikinis
This style is extremely cute, comfortable, and flattering for most body shapes. A wide variety of sporty bra tops that offer maximum support for larger busts, criss-cross straps for optimal control during high-intensity sports, and thicker fashion straps for a boho and chic “cami look” that is trending for 2015. Leave the fear of your swimsuit falling off behind or the annoying pain at your neck from a string-bikini knot!
The beauty of mesh, or crochet bikinis lies in that adding crochet detail can result in truly original and couture fashion. Even in ever so subtle measures, crochet swimsuits have an incredible appeal. Crochet appliques in swimsuits and bikinis give the item an extra kick and fashionable flair. Even pairing two crochet swimsuits of the same style side by side will yield different results.
