Whether it's the Mediterranean sea, brilliant blue plunge pools or freshwater lakes you're diving into, we've got just the thing.

Fact checked

Now that we can finally leave our homes and visit somewhere new and exciting (cue a holiday), it’s probably about time you started thinking about summer swimwear options.

With triangle, high-waisted, high-leg, halter neck, push-up and bandage designs, it can be tricky to navigate through all that choice. That’s why we’ve summed up the sexiest swimwear trends this season.

Don’t forget to check our promos and discount codes to see if you can shave money off your purchase!

Tie-dye has been back in fashion for a while now, but since we all started hanging out at home because of COVID-19, the hippy design has had a bit of a refresh. The brighter shades and pastel hues work like a dream on swimwear to create the illusion of a deeper tan. Who could say no to that?

Halter neck

Thanks to designer experimentation, the halter neck is back in action. Will it be the new cross-over collar bikini style for you, or the OG one piece? You’re spoiled for choice among these stores. What’s great about halter neck swimsuits is that they can even double as a top for your evenings, in the same way a bodysuit would. Happy packing.

High-waisted bottoms

The high-waist bikini bottom has had a revamp this year, too. From high-legs and ’90s Miami knickers, to Brazilian briefs and belted shorts, these styles are perfect for elongating legs and toning that tum of yours. Need we say more?

Animal print

No surprises, huh? Animal print has presented itself as part of a key trend in every season, whether it’s footwear, clothes or accessories. And now, animal print of all kinds is creeping more and more into swimwear, from leopard-print bikinis to zebra-striped one pieces.

One-shoulder swimsuits

Another key favourite this season is the one-shoulder style. Although this piece has been popular for a while, new designers are coming through with a fresh take. Our favourites are those pulling in at the hips for a desirable high-leg cut.
