Do you want to follow the 2017 fashion swimwear trends but don’t want to compromise on modesty? There’s good news for you!

Here are five fashion-forward swimsuit trends as well as a peak into our new swim collection for 2017.

Trend Alert #1: One Piece

There’s no getting around it. The one piece is the new two piece. Seen on the runway in every cut and color, anybody can wear it!

This season we have two one-piece suits in two colors/prints each.

Our Oceanside Cafe suit in Navy or Pink Umbrella is a stunner with its five-tiered ruffled front. The adjustable straps and full lining will keep your assets covered!

Our Sailing Sunset suit in Multi Print or Navy Dot comes with a removable halter strap.

Trend Alert #2: Ruffles

Ruffled tops are all the rage this summer so let your inner girly-girl shine!

Our Bronze Beach top with its flattering decolletage-skimming ruffle in a beautiful Mini-Flower print will leave you feeling sweet and stunning at the same time. Pair it with our Tiki Hut Bottom to complete your charming summer ensemble.  

Or, pull off two trends at once by wearing both ruffles and a one-piece! Our Oceanside Cafe suit is perfect for every swimming (or lounging) occasion.

Trend Alert #3: Polka Dots

Everyone loves a playful polka dot print. Wearing spots shows that you are feminine with a hint of fun.

Our Sailing Sunset suit comes in a delightfully sporty print of polka dots and stripes. It doesn’t get more fun than this!

Trend Alert #4: Halter Top

This year, halter is huge. The bonus? You can remain on trend while still enjoying full coverage, even when running in the sand or splashing at the pool.

With four different halter top versions for you to choose from this year, you won’t feel limited on fashionable options.

Our Sand Shore top with its tie front is not only flattering but functional. Choose from our Blue Stripe or Fanned Out prints.

Our Spring Break top comes in Pink Multi or Blue Multi so you can choose your mood. Coordinate your top half with the other half in our Spring Break bottom, also available in both colors.

Our High Dive top comes in a coral floral Multi Print and a navy Pebble Stripe.

Last but certainly not least is our Sailing Sunset suit with its on-again, off-again removable halter strap.

Trend Alert #5: Strings

The thing is, in 2017, strings are in.

Our Tiki Hut bottom features ties on both hips that offer you vast versatility in look and length. It comes in a Cameo Blue solid or a Mini Flower print.

Our High Dive bottom boasts a belt trim that laces around the waist...a fabulous find! Offered in Pink Umbrella and Navy, it can be mixed and matched with any of our tops.

Now that you know the trends, it’s time to visit our Swim Shop or any of our Utah stores to find your new swim style for 2017!
