2018 Swimwear Trends

The options this season are endless and include one shoulder, belts, scoop backs, high cut legs, polka dots, smocking, leopard prints, and bright colors.  The swimsuits I highlighted below are worth a look.

Mara Hoffman is my go-to swimwear designer.  She is known for her use of color and patterns. If you don’t want to wear a tiny bikini or a tankini, you may like Mara Hoffman. Her styles feel modern without letting it all hang out.

The spicy color palette this season feels fresh and updated. This Solid and Striped belted suit in a pretty rust color hits the mark.

Want to feel like Julia Roberts circa Pretty Woman? This Sideway suit is called “stomp the divots!” Polka dots are the “it” pattern this season.

This surf suit has a high cut leg and open back, making it not feel so covered up.
