10 Swimsuit Trends to Try This Summer!

Summer is in full swing and I don’t know about you, but I have been living in my swimsuits lately! There is nothing I love more than a cute suit and I love trying all of the hot swim trends! Today I am rounding up my favorite 10 swimsuit trends of the summer! You may notice that many of these trends overlap, and I know it may be a little late in the summer to share, but this is the best time to snag new suits because many are on sale!

To shop any piece, click the product images below each photo!


Polka dots are such a fun and whimsy print! I am still looking for my “itsy bitsy teensy weensy yellow polka dot bikini”, but for now, this fun red and pink option will do! It also comes in a one piece! Shop it below!



A cute suit is always better with a touch of ruffles! I picked this one up for my trip to Mexico this spring and it continues to be one of my favorites because of those fun ruffles!



Plunging scoopback one pieces are everywhere lately! It’s a great way to show off a little skin without showing off too much! I also love that I can pair it with shorts and it looks like a fab bodysuit!



A cute palm print suit will always be my fave! This one is AMAZING! Only $14, but amazing quality, with adjustable straps and padding!



This is such a cute trend! I’ve been knotting all the hems of my tops, so why shouldn’t my kini tops be knotted too! From one pieces to two piece swimmies, this is one of my favorite newest trends!



 A one shoulder suit is so flattering! I especially love the one shoulder one pieces with the cutout middle (like pictured above). It’s a great way to try out a one piece as it gives the illusion of a two piece!



I purchased a few smocked tops this year! I love that a smocked top doesn’t need padding because the smocking hides everything!



My favorite trend of the year, you might have noticed that many of these suits shared are off the shoulder! This trend has been around for a few years, but has seemed more popular than ever! I’ve gotten questions on alot of my off the shoulder tops on how to avoid weird tan lines. I always take the shoulder straps off and tuck them into the top and voile! A strapless suit to avoid weird tan lines!



This “trend” has been around for a few years now and I would say it’s here to stay! One of the most flattering fits, this is a great option if you feel uncomfortable in a two piece suit! Most of the suits I take on vacation with me are high waisted. This way I can eat allll the tacos on the beach I want, without feeling like I’m walking around showing off my taco baby afterwards!



Stripes, stripes and more stripes…give me all the striped swimmies! I feel like the options of striped swimmies are endless this year! So many cute stripes! The ones I am loving the most? Bright rainbow stripes!


Last but not least, you can’t forget a cute pool float!

My newest hobby? Collecting pool floats. I’m not sure when the obsession began, but I just can’t say no to a cute float! Check out my faves below…some of which I own and some I will probably own before the end of summer…

These heart sunnies are so fun and it looks like you agree! These shades come in a variety of colors and are perfect for making a fun summer statement! Plus, they are just $10!

9. Smocked Romper

This romper is comfy and cute and one of my current favorite colors (see how I styled it here). This romper is an effortless piece for throwing on during the summer! The color also transitions into fall…just pair it with a denim jacket or cardi and some booties!

8. Layered Necklace

This necklace is one of my go to’s! It completes any outfit and I love how easy it makes the layering aspect as this trio is just one necklace!

7. Striped Tie Top

It’s no wonder this tie top was a top seller last month! Cute and comfy? Yes, please! While there is currently limited stock available of this top, there are a bunch of different prints of this style available here.

6. Raw Cut Sweatshirt

This sweatshirt is one of my most worn pieces. I own it in not one, not two, but THREE colors! It’s the ultimate light weight sweatshirt for throwing on over your swimmie after a day at the beach or wearing on a chilly summer night. This sweatshirt is under $25!!!

5. Burnout Tee

I re-posted this tee from last year when I found it on sale. I actually ended up ordering it in white too because I love this tee so much. I really like the unique neckline and how comfortable it is. You can pair it with denim for a night out or wear it with leggings while lounging around the house!

4. Peplum Tee

I own this peplum tee in a few colors and wear it frequently. It is definitely one of my closet staples. The yellow is currently on sale (under $25!) with a few other seasonal colors, but get the neutrals any time at under $40!

3. Cutoff Denim Shorts

I love a good pair of distressed denim cutoffs and was excited to discover these. They do run a bit small…I ended up ordering 1 size up, and even read reviews of others ordering 2 sizes up, so know this before shopping! But for $50, you can’t beat these! A great light-wash and just the right amount of distressing makes these your new fave summer shorts!

2. One Shoulder One Piece Swimsuit and 1. Palm Print Kimono

The number 1 and 2 top sellers go hand in hand. This suit, or the 2nd top seller of the month, is SO flattering on! While there are very limited sizes available in this print, this style comes in a few different colors and is currently on sale for just $20! The number 1 seller is this amazing palm printed kimono! At under $20, this kimono is a total steal! Great quality and a price tag that can’t be beat! Wear it over your favorite denim cutoffs and tee or as a swimsuit cover up!

Smocked Romper

Happy first day of summer!

It wouldn’t be summer without a great romper. Rompers are the most effortless pieces to throw on and go when it’s hot outside. They are easy to style, make great coverups for lake days and if you pick the right one, can be extremely comfortable! I snagged this one for our trip to San Diego. I love the smocked top, the ditsy floral print and the under $50 price tag! This option is SUPER comfortable and I love the flowy bottom. This one is also easy to layer up if it gets chilly and would transition perfectly into the fall by pairing it with a denim jacket or a cardi and a pair of booties.
