Trending Swimwear 2017 — You’ve Seen This Before

Hey Fashionista! The Budget Fashionista uses cookies and affiliate links. By using this site, you agree to our privacy policy.

Acid wash and mom jeans aren’t the only ’80s trends making a comeback. Take a good scroll on Instagram, and you’ll see famous faces donning poolside silhouettes that cause a flashback or two. That’s right, it’s the high thigh cutout that’s trending in swimwear once again. We’re seeing one-pieces and bikinis with the Baywatch treatment, as bottoms and waistlines creep up higher and higher.

Since they fit over and atop the widest part of the hips, these long, high-cut silhouettes can have a slimming effect on the waistline. This season, we expect to see them making some serious impact, either paired with underwire, bra-style bikini sets or as part of thin-strapped one-pieces.

Whether you like to stay on the pulse of swim trends or simply love nostalgia, there’s never been a better time to hit your local suit shop and get it in on the fun. Our only suggestion? Maybe skip the two-tone neon Maui & Sons styling and choose a color that’ll flatter your skin tone — as not all trends are worthy of a comeback.

5 Trending Swimwear Picks

Hoping for something a bit more luxurious in the high-cut trend this time around? Way ahead of you. Choose a sleek suit, in black naturally, that gets a chic boost from glimmering metallic hardware.

2. Bandeau Beauty

If standard bikini tops aren’t your style, a cool bandeau option can suit high-waist and high-cut bottoms for a trendy take on the ’80s redux.

3. The Simple Scoop

Bring your simple high-cut, one-piece into modern times with a cheeky, blocked-font motto scrawled across the front. This piece also has a lovely, soft coral color that takes a bit of edge off of the high-cut thigh design.
