Bikini trends | My Bikini MusthavesWhen I was in Miami last year during Swimweek (read how it went down here) I was introduced by beautiful collections, new brands and of course the best bikini trends for this year. I was overwhelmed by the amazing designs I saw on the runways and I couldn’t wait to share this with you all. A lot of these trends are personal favorites of mine as well so I felt like a little girl in a candy store!

Check out these bikini trends!

1) Velvet
Try something different and go for a velvet bikini! Yes you’ve read that well, VELVET! Brands like Triangl and Andi Bagus already understand this trend very well and are offering beautiful designs. Turn some heads in a bold color!


2) Lingerie-style
If you are a fan of For Love And Lemons then I know you’ll love this trend. This season we see a lot of swimwear brands incorporate lingerie-style details in their designs. Think lace, translucent material and thin straps. Lee + Lani designed a ‘from bed to pool’ collection called Je t’aime, and yes I love it!

After the ruffle and the fringe bikini trends it’s now time for pompoms. We see pompoms everywhere! It’s such a cute detail to add to your bikini and you can match it with your sandals, bag, hat and I’ve seen even sunglasses with pompoms!

4) Lace-up ties
Front, back or side, laces are everywhere! It’s a good way to show some extra cleavage in front. Often seen in one pieces but this season you will see them in bikinis too. Lace-up swimsuits are quite versatile and can easily be worn to a festival. Coachella anyone?


5) Earthy tones
The Vix and Tori Praver runway shows were filled with beautiful earthy tones like blueberry and cranberry. Very stylish, and perfect for almost every skin tone. I love to combine my earth tone bikinis with beautiful long beach kaftans or gold accessories.

6) High-cut swimsuits
Ready to show off those super long legs? The tie-high cuts were a big trend in one pieces already and now also bikini bottoms bring that ’90 feeling back. Make sure to wax that bikini line because this trend is super sexy!

Definitely one of my favorite bikini trends for this year! We all know that the choker trend is big in fashion and fortunately this has crossed over to swimwear. Chokers highlight your collarbone and are best paired with bandeau or off the shoulder tops.


8) Off-shoulder tops
Another big trend from the fashion industry: off-shoulder tops. Maybe not ideal for tanning but at least you’re totally on-trend. From ruffles to cut-outs, choose your favorite style.


So I would love to know, which trend is your favorite? Tell me in the comment section below!
