The Best Trends From Miami Swim Week

Posted by Bikini Owner in Miami, Swim, swimsuit, swimwear, trends, Week

Now that Miami Swim Week is sadly over, we take a look at the latest macro to micro-trends coming straight out of PARAISO Fashion Fair and events. Here's a sneak peek at what to expect from swimwear designers in Resort and Spring 2019!  

Can't wait to shop for these trends? Head over to our shop to pre-order Resort 2019 collections from Lee + Lani, Amaio, Rove Swim, Rosa Cha and MGS

This summer's best-selling high-waist, high-cut bikini bottom gets a new twist, literally. A tie-knot belted detail makes all the difference and updates the cult-fave silhouette, making it the go-to bottom for beach babes — especially those who seek a figure-flattering suit. It elongates your legs and cinches your waist — what more could you want from a bikini bottom?

By now you know the '90s influences are in full swing — and it's only gaining momentum. Saved By The BellBaywatch, and Clueless all have a special place in our bikini wardrobes. High-cut one-piece swimsuits and two-pieces, barely-there monokinis, and styling with belts, bags, scrunchies, and small-framed shades are the references winning big.

Adjustable bikini tops have always been life but now with the '90s revival making a splash, bottoms have this slide-to-adjust feature, too. Cheeky to modest convertible coverage is that two-for-one deal we've been wondering why we didn't see earlier. Can we get a "heck yes" for minimal tan lines?

Expect 2019 to get wild. Animal prints of all shades and sizes come to the forefront as the key patterns to own. Zebra, leopard, and snake prints are the bold, alternative statement to stripes and florals.

Belts, belts, belts — we can't get enough. In swimwear, inspiration taken from James Bond to Studio 54 becomes a look to covet. Functionality doesn't come into play here; take it as an accessory that deserves all the stylish attention. And as trends move forward, with bottoms replacing high-waist silhouettes, belts will continue to accent a suit. In short, invest in a belted suit — it's not a short fad.

If you're like us, you follow bikini trends and know lingerie-inspired suits are a big hit right now. Going forward, corset details and lace-up ties are the way to carry this evolving boudoir-to-beach look.

Swimwear designers take outerwear cues and introduce for the first time three-piece suit sets and matching swim jackets. Talk about an elegant upgrade that works for all ages and multiple occasion. Transitioning from the beach to the boardwalk has never looked this chic.

We welcome back the era of mix and matching — something we definitely have not admired in seasons. A carefree and playful flair with pattern is encouraged, especially when stripes and florals sit together. Don't be afraid to pair solids, prints, and geo patterns together — an easy and uber-versatile trend to pick up.

It's time to treat stripes as a neutral, or a basic that pops. Retro edges in washed hues is the way to incorporate the slimming print into your 2019 bikini buys.

We can't miss rings — not the kind that accent your hand but rather your 'kinis. Metal hardware is introduced in the form of gromments of all shapes.

The overwhelming embrace of ruffles and peplums prove romanticism isn't dead. Fun and flirty continues to be one of the biggest themes in seasons to come, so get ready to showcase your feminine side more than ever.

Move over, seamless suits — intricate seam details are taking over. From laser-cut trims to contrast stitching, novelty edging is the latest way to accent a minimalist swimsuit.

With ruffles and peplums, swim skirts highlight the feminine side of swim. If you're into coverage, this is the season for you! Skirts are the new way to cover without appearing matronly.

Whoever said there's only so much one can do to a bikini design is completely wrong. Designers discover a way to play with sleeves, and we don't mind it. It's innovation at its finest with cap to long sleeves and everything in between.

One-piece swimsuits reign with strapless silhouettes coming in at the very top. This high-cut bodice is making a big statement in Resort.

It's an exposed underwire alert. Push up and draw focus to cleavage, sans the coverage seen on the typical underwire bustier tops.

Say "yes" to the V-shaped thong! Don't be shy to give it a try, this silhouette is uber-flattering — it elongates legs and lifts the behind.

Florals in spring are a no-brainer but with a vintage feel, it looks suitable for the new season. It complements the washed-out stripe trend and romantic theme seen on so many runways.

White is on! Aside from bold red and prints, this colorless hue is making a statement worth noting.
