Hey guys! Is it just me or has swimwear been taking over your Instagram newsfeed all summer (maybe even since early spring)?! It’s everywhere—so many cute prints, new cuts and unique styles that I’ve never seen before.
Here’s my guide to navigating the new wave of swimwear that has taken over Summer 2017.
My tip — Start fresh this season and pick up a suit that falls into each of the below categories. You’ll be stocked for at least a year or two!
The One Piece
Hello comfort (not commonly associated with trendy swimwear). I cannot sing enough praises about this trend coming back around. If you’re thinking oh great, time to pull out my red Baywatch suit circa 1994, think again! The one piece has been reinvented with all styles and body types in mind.
My favorite styles are the crochet one pieces. See my favorite from Aerie above. They’re not only a little more breathable, but the crochet fabric helps minimize the harsh white tummy tan lines that most one pieces put you at risk of.
Side note — I have a newfound love for Aerie! I always thought they only had lingerie and loungewear, but who knew! Their swimwear line rocks and it’s all so comfortable!
The High-Neck Halter
Sporty, high-neck halter tops are all the rage right now! Think beach volleyball or even attempting to toss a football with your family with ease. This style allows tons of room for activity without having to sacrifice style.
Francesca’s has a lot of fun high-neck halter options that incorporate some of the floral and fruity prints that they’re known for. The suit above also has a fringe detail on the ties, which adds a bit of femininity to this sportier style.
The Scalloped Bandeau
Scalloped edges for the win. I know you’ve seen them everywhere! I love the dainty touch this hemline adds to swimwear of all varieties. My favorite look is the bandeau style above. It gives off such a classic 50’s vibe and works for women of all shapes and sizes.
Tip — Don’t skip out on sunscreen with this one. While the scalloped edges add a nice style note, they could certainly create a funky tan line if you’re trying to maintain an even glow. 😉
The Off-the-Shoulder Top
Did anyone doubt that the hottest trend of the year (and last) would make its way into the swimwear arena? No way! It’s here and it’s fab! I wouldn’t wear it for an active afternoon, but it certainly makes for a cute picture!
This top from Forever21 actually stays up pretty well! We’ve all been on the “I can’t lift my arms” train and there’s just no time for that on the beach. I also love this fresh, peach color!
I hope you took a few notes! These are the top swimsuit styles at Tanger right now and again, I’m not against you getting one of each. Tanger Gift Cards are the best way to hit all the stops for your faves, and they’re so convenient!
Let me know if you have any luck and tag @tangeroutlets on your favorite beach pics to show off your new finds!
Also, let me know if you’re looking for something in particular and I’ll do my best to scout it out for you.
