Best-dressed at the beach.
We’ve been calling this season the summer of swim, and as all of us ease back into our normal routines (safely and socially distanced, of course), it’s important to find warm-weather pieces that help you exude that big summer energy. Ahead, these four swimsuit trends will make you feel luxurious—no matter your budget.
You’ve probably already been seeing this metallic fabric everywhere—if not, you’ll certainly want to be the first to sport the lurex trend. With up-and-coming brands like Oséree dedicating entire collections to it, this stretchy fabric shines bright for a standout swimsuit.

Expect to see a lot of knit, terry, towel, ribbing, and jacquard textures on the beach this season. This is one of the biggest microtrends of the season, and you’ll see it sneaking into both designer and fast-fashion brands at lightning speed. The buzzy brand to look out for is Hunza G, a favorite of the Kardashians.
If you’ve been wearing a lot of strappy sandals, you’re going to rejoice in discovering that this trend has now entered the swimwear arena. It turns out flossing isn’t just for your pearly whites. This bare-all swimsuit trend wraps or tightens around your body like a hug—and its triangle shape and extra ties are highly flattering.

One of the biggest colors this season is a deep shade of chocolate brown. A neutral color palette has always had a luxurious feel, but this hue offers more depth, as it’s softer than black, yet just as classic. There was a time when fashion lovers wouldn’t dare to wear this color, but now many are diving in feet first, using it to inspire many monochrome looks. It turns out, it’s all just about choosing the correct tones. The result: a beautiful swimsuit that is flattering on every skin tone.
