The cut outs

We already talked about this trend in the article Spring 2021 fashion trends!

The cut-out being one of the coolest trends of the season, it was expected to see it carried over to swimsuits and bikinis.

Minimal tan lines

The Brazilian staple invited itself to our beaches! If you hesitated last year between a bikini thong and a classic brief, this year you have no excuse! Sexy yes, but practical as well with minimal tan lines!

It looks like the animal prints are here to stay! Extremely popular on clothes, shoes, and accessories (read our article here), they’re invading our beachwear this summer 2021. The funkier, the better!

Original and flattering, the textured fabrics (which comes in so many varieties) are the best way to modernize a swimsuit and add a glam touch, without changing a shape that already suits you.

Summer is not here yet, but even if you already made a purchase, I’m sure you can find a perfectly valid reason to add an extra swimsuit or bikini that flatters your silhouette.
