2019’s Top 5 Swimsuit Trends

Summer is here! With it comes lazy days by the pool or on the beach. Here are some of the top swimsuit trends of 2019 to help you find the perfect swimwear this season! Don’t forget, Eucalan can keep it looking great and smelling fresh and clean every time.

Stripes

Whether it’s a gorgeous rainbow of colour you’re after or slightly more neutral tones, stripes are hot for 2019. Go rainbow fun with the High Leg One Piece Swimsuit from Gap! Or try a more modern look with the Chroma Bandeau Top and Bottom from Athleta. For a classic look, we love Sassy Striped One Piece Suit from Lingerie Diva.

Textures

Ribbing, smocking, ruching – it’s all about texture this summer! If you’re up for some colour, try this Violeta Ribbed Bikini by Mango. Looking for ruching? Try the flattering Elegant Dance Solid One Piece by Cupshe. For a sweeter look, we love this Tory Burch Costa Printed One Piece by Shopbop.

Prints

As with mainstream fashion in 2019, prints are in! Make a statement with animal pieces, go for bold geometrics, or keep it sweet and demure with wallpaper florals. We love the Beach Floral Keyhole One Piece Swimsuit by LOFT and the Beach Riot Julia One-Piece Swimsuit by Anthropologie for fun summer prints. For something a bit racier, try this Zebra Print Swimsuit by Mango.

Cutouts

Cutouts are another design trend for the season: think plunging necklines, high cut bottoms or snips in unexpected places. Try a daring neckline with the Adriana Strappy Monikini by Lingerie Diva. Stick to stripes and (mostly) classic shapes with the Solid & Striped Louise Swimsuit by Shopbop. Or try a few fun cutouts in this floral Mia Printed One Piece Swimsuit by Free People.

Details

It’s all in the details! Belts, hoops, laces, ruffles and more; all the extra details are where it’s at this year. We love the lacing in this Magical Mauve Bikini by Lingerie Diva. Or try elegant braiding as a bust detail with the Empreinte Curl One Piece Swimsuit (Modeled and reviewed by Wen of Comics Girls Need Bras). Or stick to a more classic look with this Ruffle Neck Plus-Sized Swimsuit from Old Navy.

We hope we’ve given you some fun ideas for being pool and beach-ready this summer!
