Summer is finally here, and with heatwaves soaring beyond average temperatures across the globe, there’s no better time to jump on board with the stylish beach trends emerging. From the white sandy beaches of the Caribbean to the high-fashion seas of Los Angeles, there are plenty of trends making a statement this year. Here’s a look at the hottest trends for 2018:
One of the biggest trends to hit beaches this summer is the contemporary cut-out swimsuit style. It features a cut in the fabric to make it a half-swimsuit/half-bikini fusion. Mostly worn by Instagram influencers lounging by the pool, this trend is sure to make a splash this year due to plenty of brands manufacturing their own take. Though it may be stylish, you could be left with one interesting tan line!
So-called “tiny glasses” have come straight from the catwalks to our wardrobes. Worn by celebrities and fashion guru’s, though a little obscure, this trend is not to be ignored. There’s a variety of shapes and sizes, from the classic round style to more modern diamond cuts, something to suit every face shape. Pair with a big straw beach hat and flowing kimono for the ultimate beach babe vibe.
The feeling of floating on a cloud on the beach wearing a kaftan has not been left behind in 2018. In fact, its been taken up a notch with more intricate patterned designs and diamanté additions to classic styles. Whether you prefer a shorter cover up for poolside days or a longer style for your dinner attire, there’s something for everyone. Kimonos and Kaftans have long been popular as beachwear so it’s no surprise they’re as prevalent as ever this year, perfect for slipping on for your evening beach stroll.
Bring a little flair to the beach this summer in some printed women’s designer swimwear. Animal, floral and emoji prints have all made the cut with swimsuit designs this summer. So leave your favourite all-black two-piece at home, it’s time to switch up your summer style with fun printed beachwear.
There’s no better way to try out this year’s beach trends than with some dazzling jewellery and accessories. Body chains rose to fame last year, with many brands rushing to meet demand. This year is no exception, so why not pair your favourite chain with a simple swimsuit to really make it stand out? Gold metallic tattoos are also popular accessories this summer, just make sure they’re waterproof!
