Haven't enjoyed enough sunny days this summer? Not to worry, we still have a month left and Feb is set to be a hot one. Plus, finding new ways to stay cute and look cool in your yard or at the beach is always fun to do no matter the weather.
Enter: this season's must have swimwear trends. Think daring cutouts, retro styles, and bold tropical prints - all the vibes that'll at least make you feel like you're on an international getaway.
And while when it comes to swimsuits, there is a wide range of new silhouettes, colours, and approaches to getting dressed for the hot weather, we've enlisted the help of Anna Maria who is the name behind Aussie brand Sommer Swim, worn by the likes of Kourtney Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Miley Cyrus and Kaia Gerber, to give us some insight in what's to come.
The upside down bikini look
"With the rest of the world upside down, why not experiment with your bikinis too ala Kourtney Kardashian. Bikinis that can be worn various different ways is the best way to ensure long time use and versatility (not to mention no bikini tans)"
A nod to 70’s halter neck styles
"The halter top is making waves in a big way. The vintage inspired gold ring nods to the 70s LA lifestyle where swimwear and daywear effortlessly intersect. "
Keyhole cut outs
"While one-pieces are eternally on trend, we’ve seen a lean towards cut outs coming back into the fore. Our Maxim one piece has front and back cut outs with adjustable coverage and is a great one piece option for small busted girls looking to flatter their curves."
Bikini Bottoms with design details such as gold hardware finishings, frills, ruching
"At Sommer, we make sure our bikini bottoms get as much attention to detail as the bikini tops. From gold hardware to ruching Brazilian bottoms with a twist are on trend for 2021."
Mix and match sets
"We’re big fans of mix and matching tops and bottoms, creating your own looks and colour palettes from our different lustrous quality bikinis. I just recommend making sure the sets are made from the same fabric to ensure they mix and match with ease. "
