Bikini Trends: From the Runway to the Beach

As the days grow longer and the weather grows warmer, swimwear trends are slowly edging their way to the forefront of the fashion scene. Like any other in-vogue fashion trend, popular swimsuit design changes from year to year. You can root through your closet for last year’s classic style, but if you want to fill your summer wardrobe with eye-catching bikinis and chic one-pieces, you have to keep up with the current cuts and styles.

Thankfully, swimwear fashion debuts early. In fact, Miami Swim Week premiered some of the top runway trends in swimsuit fashion that will be all over the beach this year. Here are some of the best styles you should be looking out for, inspired by runway designs.

High-Cut Legs

Although high-cut legs are not a new trend in swimwear fashion, they are a particularly flattering one. Falling higher on the hips, this style elongates your legs and lengthens your entire figure. They can appear in high-waisted or low-rise bottoms, but either way, they are particularly complimentary on almost any body type.

This season, high-cut legs will become especially prominent. You’ll see them paired with a high-rise waistband and a skimpy cut, creating a look that extends your figure while simultaneously drawing attention to your backside. 

Retro

Trends are nothing if not cyclical, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that retro styles continuously work their way in and out of popular fashion. This season, retro is back again, primarily featuring styles that evoke 80’s and 90’s fashion. Sporty tankinis, ruching along the bodice, and vivid prints and neon colours will be prominent by the seaside. Polka dots and zippered details will be especially popular, along with suits that feature a little more coverage. Accessorized correctly, you could even pull off many of these timeless styles as a trendy streetwear outfit., you could even pull off many of these timeless styles as a trendy streetwear outfit.

Animal Print

Animal prints have been bringing their wild but neutral look to the runway for several seasons, and it doesn’t appear that they’ll be stopping any time soon. At the same time, animal rights are of the utmost importance in the current climate, so faux fabrics are the new norm. Thankfully, genuine animal skin isn’t a concern when it comes to your swimwear, allowing you to embrace this stylish look without a hint of guilt.

Classic leopard print and sleek snake print will be popular choices for trendy bikinis and one-pieces as a way of bringing flashy, animalistic flair to your day at the beach. A printed top or bottom can be paired with an article in a solid colour for a wholly sophisticated look.

Knotted Details

Basic women’s designer swimwear doesn’t cut it anymore this season. While a sleek, no-frills look used to the height of fashion, swimwear trends are moving towards more intricate designs. Knotted details and elaborate ties are taking over the swimwear scene. Minimalism is out, embellishments that allow the suit to double as a top are in.

Stringy ties that wrap around your body multiple times are a particularly popular way to embrace this trend. If you still veer towards a simpler style, knotted waistbands and decorative ties can also allow you to add this style to your wardrobe. Either way, this season’s trends are moving towards showy adornments, rather than the austere style that was so prevalent in the past.

Mothers Day Gift Selection

Mothering Sunday in the UK is observed on the fourth Sunday of Lent. Traditionally, it was a day when children who had left home to work were given a day off to visit their home town or village, and spend some time with their family.

Centuries ago, in a very religious United Kingdom, it was considered important for people to return to their home or 'mother' church once a year. So each year everyone would visit the main church or cathedral of the area where they were born or brought up. For this reason, most historians think that it was the return to the 'Mother' church which led to the tradition of children, particularly those working as domestic servants and apprentices and living away from home, being given the day off to visit their mother and family. It became usual to pick wild flowers along their journey to present to their mother, or at the church.

These old religious ideas have contributed to our current tradition of spending time with, and giving gifts to mothers, grandmothers, aunts and sisters – those who have had a caring role in our lives as we have grown up.

As is common at every gift giving time of year, the question of what to buy is uppermost in everyone’s minds – and not least here at Fashions Finest Headquarters! As usual we have searched for some beautiful, creative and interesting gifts and ideas for Mothers and care givers everywhere to enjoy and cherish.
