1. Swimsuit Trend: One-Piece Fever

Brand we are obsessing over: Wolven Threads

We are loving the vibrant, colorful patterns of the swimwear by Wolven Threads, based in California. These quick-drying suits are perfect for Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) and are made from recycled bottles (they are 80% OEKO-Tex certified Recycled P.E.T., to be exact). All designs from Wolven Threads are inspired by nature and sacred geometry. This conscious brand also donates 5% of their profits to bringing yoga to at-risk youth.
Our favorite Wolven Threads one-piece suit, the Redflower One Piece, offers great coverage, a plunging neckline, and a mesmerizing mandala design that’s trending in the swimsuit and yoga world.

2. Swimsuit Trend: Boho Floral

Brand we are obsessing over: Maaji Swimwwear

The Colombian brand Maaji is worn by #RealMermaids. These maajical suits are everything you’d ever want for a colorful boho life underwater. This earth-conscious company is also planting an ocean of trees (90,000 trees and growing) through their Earth Warriors movement.
Shapeshift into a mermaid with this boho floral Batik Dancer strapless corset top. This vibrant floral print look is all the rage this season, and the colorways will have you falling in love every time you put it on!

3. Swimsuit Trend: Crochet Everythang

Brand we are obsessing over: Frankie’s Bikinis


As they take Instagram by storm, Frankie’s Bikinis is a brand to watch! Inspired in Malibu and made in LA and Bali, these suits are rising to fame for their dreamy fabric and cheeky bottoms. These swimsuits are a celebrity favorite, worn by Ireland Baldwin and Kylie Jenner.
Embrace your inner hippie chick with this Poppy One-Piece. We love this adorable crochet trend – from a crochet mandala center one-piece to itty-bitty crochet bikinis, we just can’t get enough!

4. Swimsuit Trend: Get Cheeky

Brand we are obsessing over: Coulbourne


Coulbourne swimwear is perfect for those “suns out, buns out” days. Known for their barely-there bottoms, this hot brand makes beautiful, minimal bathing suits – to inspire your inner adventurer and build your confidence.
We love these cheeky bottoms in white, paired with this gorgeous corset crop top. With luxurious fabric that stays in place, you’ll look and feel damn good in this bikini.


5. Swimsuit Trend: Strap-tastic

Brand we are obsessing over: Free People

We already love Free People for their timeless looks and trendy styles. And their line of swimwear is certainly no exception. They’ve got us drooling over their summer swim 2017 styles, but their strappy suites have us saying more straps please !
For all the strappy glam, we’re lovin’ on Free People’s strappy Jessi bikini top. Pair it with the cute and simple matching bikini bottoms for a sexy yet subtle strappy look.

6. Swimsuit Trend: Desert Prints

Brand we are obsessing over: Gabi Fresh for Swimsuits for All

For all the voluptuous vixens, check out the new line by Gabi Fresh for Swimsuits for All. Designed with fit in mind (and offered in sizes 8-34), you will love the luxe fabric and flirty details of these suits. From the “Queen of Bikinis” herself, Gabi’s message is to love yourself now, book that vacay, and buy that dream bikini.
Cacti and desert prints are all the rage right now – and we love this Gabi Fresh bikini featuring colorful cacti and a sexy underwire halter top.

7. Swimsuit Trend: Versatile Minimalist

Brand we are obsessing over: Bongani Swimwear

All the way from South Africa, Bongani Swimwear takes beach sexy to another level. Their beachwear designs are innovative yet simple, and versatile for the minimalist beach babes out there. Bongani Swimwear donates 10% of profits to United Through Sport in South Africa.
Take this gorgeous Two-Way One piece suit trend from beach to brunch and back to the beach. The top of this suit is convertible – and when paired with a skirt or flowing pants – you can even take this gem to dinner or out on the town.

8. Swimsuit Trend: Hawaiian Floral Print

Brand we are obsessing over: Kaikini

Hailing from Hawaii, KaiKini is a badass brand for the active beach babe. KaiKini’s Brazilian fit will have you turning heads. Bring the booty and the good vibes in these cheeky suits. KaiKini is a green company and their suits are sweatshop-free, so you can sleep easy after a day in the water.
The popular Hawaiian floral pattern of this Wild Wahine bikini has us dreaming of a surf retreat in Kauai – and cocktails on the beach.

9. Swimsuit Trend: 90s Surfer Chic

Brand we are obsessing over: Riot Swim

If you want to start a beach bonfire with that booty, Riot Swim is the brand for you. Straight outta Los Angeles and featured in Harper’s Bazaar, these sexy suits will reveal some underboob or butt cheek. As Riot Swim says, “Relax, it’s just ass.”
We are ready to live in the totally trendy surfer top. Pair it with the mason suspender bottoms to complete the oh-so-stylish 90s surfer chic swimsuit trend. Baywatch just got a makeover!

10. Swimsuit Trend: Go Nude

Brand we are obsessing over: Beach Riot

Not to be confused with Riot Swim (above), Beach Riot swimwear is perfect for the boss babe. With designs that are edgy, modern, and bold – and designed in Newport Beach, CA – these suits bring that flirty California cool with a twist of Vegas, baby! What happens on the beach, stays on the beach.
Talk about sexy?! This delicate nude one piece trend only leaves a little to the imagination. But with the gorgeous snakeskin texture and gold detail, it’s just enough, letting you wear nude without actually looking nude.
Wherever summer takes you – from festivals to sleepy beach towns to kiddie pools in the backyard – celebrate under the sun in your trendy new swimsuit. We hope our list of this summer’s hottest swimsuit trends helped you find your new favorite swimsuit style. Dear inner water goddess, we salute you!
