We’re aware that most people buy just one or two new swimsuits per season (unless you live right next to the beach or have a pool—lucky you). Thus, deciding which one you’re going to invest in for this year requires careful research. Like everything else in fashion, every season you’ll find designers releasing new bikinis and one pieces, likely around a certain theme. For spring/summer 2019, animal print reigns supreme, from your leopard spots to tiger stripes, though we’ve uncovered four other trends you’re sure to see lining the lounge chairs this summer too. (You don’t need another little basic black bikini!).
See which trend speaks to you, ahead, add said suit to your cart, then get ready to wear it in three to five business days. Don’t forget SPF!
This season’s animal print selections run the gamut, from your classic leopard to variations on zebra and tiger stripes—even python! You’ll find these designs splashed onto one-pieces and bikinis in a variety of colors from neon pinks to a more subdue white-and-black combination. While animal prints are generally associated with that “look-at-me” vibe, anyone can rock them. The fierce print serves as a little reminder that we’re all feeling more powerful and bold this year, so don’t be afraid to own it.
Blink and you might miss this subtle but sweet detail. Tiny bows are popping up on swimsuits, whether on the shoulders or on the side of your bikini bottoms. Some designers like Mara Hoffman even made them the focal point on swimsuits, placing them front and center for the world to see.
