Hello summer, we have missed you! (you are somewhere!) We’re running around like headless chickens trying to get bikini ready. But while we concentrate on that, we almost forget about what to wear on the beach this season! Thank god we have an expert on swimwear just a call away. Gala from MyBikiniMusthaves knows exactly what’s hot on the beach this season and she’s going to tip all the hottest swimwear just for Wander-Lust!
In recent years I’ve seen more and more one pieces with less fabric: cut-out swimsuits rose quickly to popularity! But this year I think the cut-out bikinis will take over from the one pieces. What I love about cut-outs is that you can completely decide yourself how much skin you want to show and to which point you feel comfortable. A new variant of the cut-out trend is the Butterfly: a row of horizontal cut-outs on the back of your bathing suit. This is your go-to style for this summer!
2. Crochet 2.0
I know what you think, crochet swimwear isn’t a 2016 trend because we’ve seen them already for a couple of years. And it’s true! But let’s be honest, we still love them, don’t we? But I’ve seen a couple of fashion updates in the more classic crochet styles as we know them. Brands like BECCA, Emilio Pucci and Missoni know how to work this trend and show us a fashionable twist in swimwear. Crochet bikini top with neoprene fabric anyone? Love it!
3. Strapless one pieces
Readers of my blog mybikinimusthaves.com already know that strapless one pieces were a hot topic a couple of weeks ago and it wasn’t without reason. These type of one pieces are not only for new moms or curvy ladies, lord no! They look amazing on tall, slim bodies too. Take notes from Bella Hadid and Sports Illustrated model Hannah Davis. And if you have bigger breast, just make sure to wear a one piece with underwire to keep everything in place 😉
4. Wrap bikini tops
Wrap bikini tops definitely belong to the swimwear trends for 2016! And also with this trend you have several variations. Like the front cross wrap, shown in black below, and of course the thinner and wider wraps in the tops. I always advise to wear the thinner straps if you have smaller breasts and the wider straps are perfect if you’re privileged with a fuller cup size. But either way, the attention will be drawn to your lady parts anyway 😉
5. Crop tops
My personal favourite trend for 2016! Not very ideal for a good tan-session, I know, but you can really show your own personal style with crop top bikinis. Some people think crop tops are only available in sportive styles but that’s not true! The great thing with bikini crop tops is that you can also wear them outside the beach too. It’s a very popular style at festivals! Oh and one more tip, if you go for a crop top halter style bikini make sure you choose low rise bottom otherwise your torso will look very short.
