The two biggest trends I have noticed for swimsuits in 2021 is psychedelic and colorful patterns and then three piece sets. I’m always someone who loves some fun patterns and colors so I love that this trend is moving it’s way into our swimwear.
Since there is such a lack of clothing when it comes to swimwear, we have to find new ways to spice it up. Cover-ups are a great way of doing so and matching your cover-ups to your bathing suit are an even better way of doing so. That is one of the biggest trends for this summer when it comes to bathing suits and I love it.
The next big trend this summer is crazy patterns. This trend is everywhere this Spring but specifically will be found on bathing suits and pants. Anything trippy patterned is such a statement and can stay in your closet forever because it is such a statement piece.
Now onto the more important things: where I buy my swimsuits. This is thus far my whole list of brands I buy my bathing suits from. They all range in prices and styles but whenever I am summer shopping, this is my go-to list. I will continue to add to this list overtime so I hope this helps you in your swimsuit searches.
