Living in a beach town usually means you are up to date with the latest bikini trends since the beach is basically a sandy runway with different models every week.
It’s no surprise that Miami is one of the sexiest cities EVER [to quote Will Smith: party in the city where the heat is on…it’s ALWAYS on]. One of my favorite things about Miami is that it’s a hub for cultures and people of all types, it’s always sunny, and the beach seems to be calling your name every day no matter who you are.
So whats hot in the world of swimwear this year?
I know, this one surprised me too. But I have to admit I am OBSESSED now, and shockingly enough they do hold up well in the ocean water and don’t lose their texture after a beach or pool day – plus you feel like a real-life mermaid.
HIGH WAISTED BOTTOMS
We are HERE for high waisted bottoms. I feel like I am a 90’s model AND it hides my burger belly if I went a little too crazy at Five Guys that weekend (happens more often than you think..). Finish your look off with a bandana, tie your boyfriends white button up, and maybe a fanny pack (if your feeling very trendy) and you have the classic 90’s look. #TRENDING
HIGH CUT ONE PIECES
Just when we thought the one piece bathing suits were on their way out the door, the fashion gods found a way to make them even sexier. High cut one-piece suits are EVERYWHERE right now (and super easy to accessorize). Big, small, curvy, skinny, athletic- no matter what body size you are it’s virtually impossible to not feel like a million bucks in one of these. #BAEwatch
ANYTHING GOES COVERUPS
I read about this in January (Yes, I’ve been waiting that long to write this article because I wanted to make sure the trends were backed up by the trendy beach bums) and this is the craziest and more fun trends of the year so far. At first, I thought it was just the crazy spring breakers rocking anything goes cover-ups (yes, this month has been rough for Miami Locals) but the coverups at all the Pool Parties for Winter Music Conference in Miami last week were OUT THERE and in the best way. Basically, if you love to be extra – this is the trend for you! Just make sure to put it all on Instagram so we can get inspired.
