Check out what our fashion experts discovered for the spring and summer season:
Summer is about color and this summer, we’re bringing back the 70s! The swimwear runways were popping with shades of khaki and aqua from rich, subtle neutrals, tans and nudes to vibrant, exciting turquoises, teals and seafoams.
Our three color picks for the season? Coral, khaki and lapis. Last year’s neon 80’s inspirations have been toned down, muted and revamped for a classier, more sophisticated palette. Always a classic? Black and white.
Our Pick: This Vitamin A bikini pairs two of the season’s hottest trends; bright aqua hues and a bandeau top!
In keeping with the retro aesthetic that will be popular for the upcoming spring/summer season many of the prints will reflect a 70s, boho vibe.
From Native American inspired prints, to hippie imbued designs, swimsuits and bikinis this summer will be all about the 70s bohemian movement. Look for Navajo style patterns, fringe accessories, paisley prints, soft 60s florals and earth tones!
Our Pick: Channel your inner flower child in this Native American inspired bathing suit by L*Space complete with fringe!
From frills to fringe, this season it’s all about the accents on your bathing suits. Look for fringe, wooden rings and accouterments, beaded accents on ties, ruffles and other embellishments!
Metal and wood hardware that adds a geometric or architectural touch can transform a plain bikini into a fashion forward look.
Our Picks: This L*Space bikini features two of our favorite trends architectural accents and bandeau tops! If you prefer a more avant garde look, this Luli Fama two piece swimsuit also features a bandeau top with a unique starfish design in the center.
Another popular Luli Fama bikini features a sweet heart decor in the center of the bandeau top, perfectly complimenting its wild zebra print!
Possibly the biggest trend for the season is the cutout one piece. Bringing back the glamourous 70s aesthetic, cutout pieces are a symbol of sleek, classic style.
These maillots offer the thrill of a subtle skin flash while offering you the option to remain a little more covered up. Pair with a big, floppy straw hat, some cat eye sunglasses and bangles for the ultimate lounge look.
Our Picks: Combine two of this seasons trends fringe and cutout accents — with this tan L*Space maillot. Sexy, subtle and chic! Those looking for something a little more daring will be sure to turn heads in this little black L*Space number.
If your look is less vamp and more fun-in-the-sun, we recommend this creamy Vitamin A swimsuit, featuring a sexy décolletage and gold accents, or this L*Space sport swimsuit that combines classic American sportswear style with sexy summer trends!
We know what you’re thinking — sheer? For a bathing suit? This year, it’s all about the cover ups. A light dress can take you from the beach to the bar, while a blousy top can be the perfect casual piece for a stroll on the boardwalk. This season it’s all about sheer — whether you opt for mesh, lace, breezy cotton or crochet!
Our Picks: This gorgeous, crochet poncho from Vitamin A is the perfect beach cover up! Throw it on over a bikini, strap on some platform sandals and go grab an ice cream! For something a little lacier, we chose this L Space piece — perfect with denim shorts and some huarache sandals!
