The days are starting to get longer, and warmer weather looks like it is just around the corner. Yes – spring and summer and coming up thick and fast so it is now time to start thinking about updating your swimwear collection. We’ve seen a lot of different styles hit the runway in summer 2023 collections, so let’s take a look at some of our favourites:
Bikini trends 2023
High Waisted Bottoms
High-waisted bikini bottoms have been the height of fashion at various points throughout history – and 2023 is no different. Not only are these designs fashionable but they are also extremely flattering – pulling you in at the waist and hiding any lumps and bumps that you may feel a little self-conscious about. Additionally, the high waist design elongates your legs, making you look taller and slender. Why not have some fun with your high-waisted bottoms and look for designs that stand out from the crowd – with cut-out or ruffle designs.
Asymmetric Designs are increasing in popularity and one-shoulder bikinis are a great way to harness this trend. With a one-shouldered design, you can elevate a simple plain bikini – giving it a classy and elegant look. On the other hand, if you are looking for a more glamorous and over-the-top look, choose a one-shoulder design that has multiple straps, fringe, or ruffle designs.
Sleek, Simple Lines
If you are looking for a chic and simple design – the classic bandeau bikini is back. This is perfect for those with a more petite frame but may not be the best option for those with a fuller bust where straps would be better for support. Bandeau bikini tops are perfect if you are looking to get an even tan without any strap marks. Try mix-and-match bikinis by pairing a plain bandeau top with a number of different print bottoms for multiple looks in one.
Bright and Vibrant Shades
It’s summer – the sun is shining; flowers are in bloom and the world feels alive. That is why bright colours are always popular at this time of year. In 2023, bright colours are taken even further with the return of neon shades. Bright greens, vibrant oranges, lively yellows, and energetic pinks are hot on the runway right now and swimwear is a really fun way to incorporate these shades.
Accessories To Pair With Your Swimwear
We couldn’t mention swimwear without discussing the fabulous accessories that you can pair alongside it. One of the best ways to elevate a bikini look, especially if you are in the hot sun is to add a hat. Think wide-brimmed, neutral-toned hats that flop gracefully over your face in the sun – protecting your skin while looking stylish at the same time.
This can also be paired with some delicate, minimalist jewelry pieces such as thin gold chains or delicate small gold hoops. Gold is a classic metal which will stay on trend for years to come – perfect for jewelry which is an investment. Avoid chunky or heavy jewely as this will weigh you down and could lead to some pretty unfortunate tan lines!
