3 Hot Swimwear Trends 2016
3 hot swimwear trends in 2016 are: 1) high waisted bikinis, 2) maillots and 3) swim shirts.
High-waisted bikinis are here to stay! These silhouettes have the 50’s and 60’s retro vibes. They are feminine, enhance your curves, are super flattering and provide more coverage when you don’t want to bare it all. High-waisted bikinis give you confidence when playing volley ball or romping on the beach. There are a number of options to choose from such as cut-out styles, florals, stripes and styles with strappy ties. You can also style them under sheer skirts for an edgy look.
Maillots are one piece swimsuits that are sophisticated and stylish. The one piece bathing suit is easy to wear and flattering on most women. Maillots come in many styles from classic tanks, pretzel, ruched or strappy / cutout styles. Some styles have high necklines, plunging necklines and they can have long sleeves. Many one-piece bathing suit styles give more body coverage than two-piece styles but can be sexy with cut-outs and plunging necklines. Style your maillot with jeans, shorts or crop pants to shop or meet a girl friend for lunch. Dark color maillots such as black or navy are very slimming.
Swim shirts are sun protective shirts. Most are made from spandex, nylon or polyester and block harmful UV rays. They can be worn swimming or paired with casual clothing to run errands, go hiking or take a walk. For swimming pair a swim shirt with a bikini bottom or wear one with casual clothing such as shorts, pants or jeans. Swim shirts with a UPF rating of 50+ block out over 98% of the sun’s harmful rays, protecting your skin from the damaging effects from the sun. Sun shirt styles vary from slim fitting to fuller with a more relaxed fit and come in solid colors or fashionable prints. Now is the time to stock up for the summer.
