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. The Sydney Sweeney x Frankies Bikinis collaboration is the perfect example of this trend, with a bold red and white cherry pattern gracing many of the pieces.

Stylish Structure

While lingerie-inspired bikinis may seem a bit risqué for some more modest-leaning beach-goers, underwire bikinis are on-trend in 2023. Even though these looks are reminiscent of classic lingerie styles, that doesn’t necessarily mean less coverage. Structured bikini tops inspired by the look of a corset or bustier tend to offer great support and full coverage. Plus, it’s an easy look to throw on a flowy skirt with and grab a bite to eat after a beach trip.

Tame and Timeless

While bold patterns and lingerie-inspired pieces may be some of the top swimwear trends in 2023, there’s always room for something timeless and classic. High-waisted swimsuit bottoms provide a bit more coverage while still being stylish and trendy. With a bold pattern, cute color choice or fun cutouts, this look can be unique and trendy while still maintaining its timelessness.

Trendy Textures

From ribbed fabrics and shimmer to knit and crochet pieces, texture is an easy way to elevate your swimwear look. Whether you want intricate stitching, patterns and colors or a minimal and sporty look, this is the swimwear trend for you. Knit and crochet swimwear gives an effortless and bohemian feel, while ribbed designs are modern and minimal. A shimmered fabric catches the light for a stunning and eye-catching look.
