Swimwear Looks You'll See Everywhere In 2021

With the number of vaccinated people on the rise, things are slowly headed back to pre-pandemic times (via The New York Times). While things aren't quite back to normal, yet, it's likely that you'll be able to spend some time at the beach or poolside this summer where you'll will see a variety of swimwear. However, there are certain swimwear looks that will stand out.

Even if you're already familiar with the fashion trends that are taking over in 2021, you may not know what swimwear trends will look like this year. The beach-ready looks that are mentioned down below will be seen everywhere in 2021. Already, they are popping up on runways, in magazines, and via social media, reminding everyone of their style and popularity.

They can also be found on shopping websites and in stores, allowing people like you to get in on the season's most fashionable finds. So see which swimwear elements are currently "in," and feel free to use this as an excuse to do some retail therapy!

High cuts, florals, smocking, and lace-up details are in for swimwear this year

PopSugar points out that high cuts up the thigh, which were seen during the 1990s, have made a comeback on bottoms and one-piece suits in 2021.

The throwback vibe continues with floral prints. Florals will be seen everywhere this summer, with variations ranging from cute and flirty buds to bright and retro daisies.

When it comes to material, smocked swimwear is trending in 2021. This style adds an extra layer of depth and texture to an outfit that can be worn while tanning by the pool or while splashing in the waves. Another detail that will give swimsuits further interest this year is embellishments like lace-up bows, ties, and strings.

Swimsuits will feature asymmetry, pastels, and cutouts in 2021

When reporting on the year's hottest swimwear, experts at Who What Wear predicted that asymmetry, pastels, and cutouts will be seen on summer swimsuits in 2021. Asymmetrical options may include details such as bows or cutouts on one side but not the other, as well as one-shoulder suits.

Pastels that look good enough to eat will be featured on bikini tops, coverups, and beyond, so look for baby blues, pretty pinks, and pale purples.

Additionally, cutouts like keyholes and peekaboos of skin are popular in 2021. This gives people the chance to show off their amazing assets in a fun and funky way!

Summer swimwear will show off animal print and ruching

Marie Claire reminds readers of two more swimwear trends of 2021 — which means two more excuses to do some shopping — in order to get in on the latest styles and designs.

First up is animal print. Already, this trend has been seen on hats, pants, and nail art this year, so get ready for nods to leopards, cows, dalmatians, snakes, zebras, and cheetahs while at the pool and/or beach.

Something else everyone can expect to see and wear this summer is ruching, notes Marie Claire. Just like smocking, lace-up details, and cutouts, this technique will elevate swimsuits, making them even more interesting to see, feel, and rock. Swimsuits have changed a lot over the years, and 2021 may have some of the cutest swimwear looks yet!
