by Hannah Rose, Copywriter

Swimwear season has arrived, and there’s no preparation needed. We’ll provide the cute styles, you just come as you are. Deal? Whether you’re an all-in-one fan or prefer to keep things separate, we’ve got shape-loving styles for every single body. Better still, we’re about to reveal the swimwear trends for 2021 to get you ahead of the game this summer. Drum roll please…

This year, those classic pieces have been taken up a notch. Expect feel-good shades, selfie-worthy prints, extra-flattering finishes, super-glam touches and more. Basically, the swimwear trends for 2021 are looking amazing just like you will be when you’re wearing them. The best part? You’ll be feeling amazing, too.

So, whether you’re prepping the patio for a sunbathing sesh, dreaming of jetting off to somewhere tropical or getting ready for a summer of staycations, these are the swimwear trends for 2021 that need to be on your radar. Oh, and remember you can never have too much swimwear…

1. Sculpted Underwire

Flattering bikini tops? Erm yes please. We’re talking about those underwired bra-like designs that sculpt your shape in seconds. No longer just a practical addition, the underwiring has become a fashion statement and we’re obsessed. Providing a more than welcome lift, the underwired bikini top is a must for your 2021 swimwear collection.

2. Mood-Boosting Brights

When it comes to 2021 swimwear trends, the brighter the better. Think sunshine yellows, sea-mimicking turquoises and Baywatch reds. Not only will they lift your mood in an instant, they’ll also have you standing out for all the right reasons. Basically, colourful silhouettes are in this season and they’re bolder (and better) than ever before.

3. Elevated Swimsuits

The one-piece is going nowhere. However, this year it comes with a little more oomph. From asymmetric designs to cut-out details, belted waists and hardware embellishments, the classic style has had a serious upgrade and we’re loving it. Plus, when swimsuits look this good, they can double up as a top, too. Perfect.

4. High-Waisted Bottoms

We’re sure it comes as no surprise that the 50s-inspired high waist is on our list of swimwear trends for 2021. Providing moderate coverage, this leg-lengthening and waist-defining style works for every figure. Whether you want to go all out in prints or keep it simple in black, there’s a thigh-high cut for everyone. Flattering and trending? We’re sold.

5. Lots Of Details

This year, swimwear has gone one step further. Think gold and silver-tone details that add a glam touch to those classic pieces. They’ll make you feel that bit fancier without you having to make any more effort, meaning they’re perfect for those times when you want to impress. Beach party anyone? Jewellery is an added bonus.
