Pretty in Prints

The days of exclusively sleek and chic are over! Brands are bringing back bold patterns in a big way. Funky, colorful and eye-catching prints are all the rage in swimwear this season. All things ’70s-inspired are a plus, with bright colors and loud patterns at the forefront of 2024 styles.

Coastal Coquette

The “coquette” aesthetic popularized by Gen Z fashion bloggers and TikTok personalities is here to stay. The trend is characterized by sweet, romantic and playful elements that celebrate traditional femininity. Think ruffles and frills, bows, sweetheart necklines and plenty of white lace.

The trend has made its way to swimwear in the form of frilly cover dresses and bow- and lace-adorned swimwear.
