Hottest Swimwear Trends and Where to Buy Them

Swimwear Trends 2021

Whether you have an upcoming poolside party, a beach trip planned or even a tropical getaway now that travel is open, there is one common denominator – the need for some swimsuits! Each year, there are certain emerging styles that are more sought after, as well as the timeless bathing suit looks that will remain tried and true for years to come. I wanted to focus on both of these today on the blog so you can prepare for whatever summer event you have coming up. With that said, read below to discover the hottest swimsuit trends and where to buy them.

Hottest Swimwear Trends and Where to Buy Them

String Bikini

As far as the classic swimsuit style, the string bikini has been spotted on all the celebrities and influencers this season. It is minimal, yet incredibly sexy! Plus, this micro style allows for minimal tan lines and the top can be converted to be worn multiple ways. Both solid and pattern options in the string bikini are highly coveted. If you do not mind showing off a little more skin, string bikini bottoms in a barely-there thong style are flying off shelves as we speak!

Cut Out

I have exclaimed my love for the cut out trend in clothing on the blog before and I am so happy to see this trend translates to swimwear too! This style is definitely more prominent in one-pieces but could also be seen in separates like an asymmetrical shoulder. The cut out detailing totally enhances any basic silhouette to add a more contemporary twist.

Sophisticated Animal

One of the most sought after patterns in swimwear for 2021 is animal but this has to be represented in a sophisticated way. This means more neutral based, tonal tiger, cheetah and zebra prints, rather than abstract, loud colors. This sophisticated animal can be seen in a variety of silhouettes, including bikinis, one-pieces and even coverups. Shop this trend below!


I have also noticed there has been an uptick of swimwear that has a lingerie-inspired fit. For instance, the underwire top has been a widely popular style this year! This look offers the same support and lift as a bra would, while also breathing new life into a regular old swimsuit. This elevated underwire top pairs well with any style bottom, including a regular string bottom, high-rise, or high-waisted suit.

These are definitely some of my favorite swimwear trends of 2021. Which one will you be rocking this season?
