The Miami Swim Week 2018 came with a bustle of new fashion trends in the swimwear department. After watching the designs roll out one after the other, it is not difficult to predict which swimwear trends we are going to see on the beaches this year. It is a lot about razzle-dazzle and bedazzles. From frills to tie-ups, from old-school high waist hipsters to minimal string bikinis. Everything is a part of this year’s swim fest.
Swimwear Trends for 2018
- Front tied swimsuits
These are all the rage this summer. Front tied bikinis, monokinis, and traditional swimsuits are all around embracing the hottest bods this summer. The strappy front-tied lacey tops are the showstopper this year.
- Asymmetric swimsuits
Asymmetry is everywhere in design. One-shouldered swimsuits have grabbed the limelight at several shows of leading fashion designers like Luli Fama and For Love & Lemons. They do not shun the cute prints, and that is the best part about them.
- Mismatched pairing
Imagine if you could walk on the beach wearing a white bikini top with a red-white striped bottom. Well, stop imagining and start looking for your dream swimsuit. Mismatched bikinis are the hottest swimwear trend among all ages. From kids to their moms, everyone is going crazy for this retro style.
- Suits with tassels
There is no better way to usher in a 70s vibe this summer! Turn the heat up a notch with tasseled bandeau tops and bikini tops. The right color combination of the fabric and tassel can work for monokinis as well. They have indeed given a new breath of life to the otherwise monotonous plus size swimwear collections.
- Plunging necklines
Plunging necklines are now back in the swimsuit zone with a bang. They have dialed up the heat in the plus size sections as well. Loose ruffles along the teasing neckline add sensuousness and grace. High-cut, low-plunge necklines and a generous dash of tassels will make you want to step into the water, even if you weren’t planning for a beach holiday.
- Activewear swimsuits
Swimming is indeed a sport, and there is no reason popular activewear fashion should elude swimwear. Expect fun sporty bracelets, high waist hipsters with panels, racer-backbralets, and paneled bikinis. The choices are plenty in the swim-activewear section. If you are worried about the few pounds you have picked up in the last couple of weeks, these athletic designs will successfully help you hide the trims away.
- Oolala! Shimmer and shine
Everything is about bling these days. It is impossible to look at a Met Gala shoot or the Cannes photoshoot without spotting an all-gold, all-silver or all-rose gold gown. Why should swimwear fashion trail behind? 2018 is going to be the trailblazing year of the shimmery swimsuit. Having trouble imagining?

Beachwear trends come and wash over us faster than the surfs of the summer ocean. It is crucial to look trendy when you forego your regular wear and step into the beach-minimalism.
