2014 Fashion Swimwear Trends

2014 Jun | By

The five-day countdown to summer has officially begun. With that in mind, we’ve tucked away our parkas (for now) and we’re packing up our beach bags. Although we love our tech suits and goggles, we can’t help but share the fashion forecast for the 2014 summer season. Here are the styles that you can expect to see under the sun this year…

Tie the Knot with Style - Straps, chic crochet, nautical knots and macramé masterpieces are tying up the swimwear trends for 2014. It’s time to cut your ties with boring swimwear and add an exciting edge with layers and textures. The Mara Hoffman Ganesh Basket Weave Top is a dynamic duo with it’s conservative front, and strappy back. If bold colors aren’t your thing, we also love the subtle detail of the Lolli Amante Crochet Bow Bottom paired with the Lolli Novia Ruffle Bandeau Top.

Posh Prints - Whether you want to look fashionable in fruits or feminine in floral, you can't go wrong with prints in 2014. Photorealism allows you to unravel a world of fashion adventure with photographic prints and scenic designs. Take the heat up a notch in the Seafolly Desert Springs Tank Maillot—trust us, this isn’t just a mirage. 

If you’d rather keep things sweet and simple, we’ve got endless novelty prints that are taking the runway by storm. Varying in themes and trends—from foxy felines to boho paisleys—novelties add a unique imprint on the summer sol (and soul). If you’re looking to spice up your swimwear with pretty patterns, we love anything and everything from Maaji.

Printed Rashies - Daring and darling rashguards are defying the damaging sunrays this season. Poolside princesses and wave-riding warriors across the world are slipping into their favorite whimsical design for an ultra-chic sun protection in 2014. 

Cutting Edge Cut Outs - Chic cut outs are slicing their way through the sunny days, from modern meshes to flirty laces, you'll see right through this fashion (literally). Feeling edgy? We suggest you mix and mesh (pun intended) with the Athena Moon Glow High Neck Bra Top. If you would rather splash around in something sweet, lace overlays and laser-cut designs will do the trick. Check out the Roxy Gypsy Moon Flutter Top and Brazilian String Bottom.

Contemporary Tops - A modern twist on a classic top, the bra inspired bustier remains dominant on this year's runways. Although different from the bustier, flattering flutter tops are also holding their own, staying a fashion favorite in 2014. They say opposites attract, right? Frolic on the sand in a classic L Space flutter one day, and take your bikini to new lengths in a revolutionary midkini top and high-waisted bottom the next day. Regardless of which style you choose (or maybe you’re like us and have to have both), these silhouettes will radiate vogue vibes all season long.

Sporty Spice - Sporty, spice and everything nice; these athletic inspired swimsuits are sure to turn heads whether you’re playing a pick-up game of beach volleyball or catching waves in the salty sea. Designed for the fierce and adventurous fashionista, you’ll be able to chase your endless summer in active swimwear like the Seea Riviera Seaglass One Piece.
