All eyes were on South Florida last week as Miami held it’s annual Swim Week. Press, bloggers, buyers and fashionistas, crowded the streets of Miami Beach as they made their ways to runway shows, trade fairs, pop-up shops and parties, that were all centered around swimsuits.
This year I got to attend fashion shows and events from Funkshion for the first time, and the island girl in me was beyond excited to see what the designers have in stores for us in 2017. Yes, these bathing suits will not hit the stores until next year. If you were following fashionayiti on Snapchat and Instagram, you already had a little preview of the fashion shows I attended which are: Beach Riot, Blue Life, Kai Lani, Ana Kosturova, Maaji, Monica Hansen Beachwear etc… to name a few.
So, recapping Miami Swim Week in general, here are 8 of the hottest trends that we will see in swimsuits next year:
- Plunging One Piece
One piece suits are here to stay and this time the more revealing the better!
- Halter Bikinis
A less conservative halter tops were a favorite on the runways. Designers added a risqué side to the halter tops with creative and sheer cuts.
- Creative Cut-Outs
Designers went the extra mile to give us more creative designs with fun and slick cut-outs on both one pieces and bikinis.
- Wrap Around Tops
This season designers played around with the basic triangle bikini top giving it a little “extra” with intricate ties and wraps on bikinis tops, bottoms, and one pieces.
- Bold Prints
Florals, tribal and ethnic prints, stripes and colors were not scarce on the runway.
This swinging and playful accent adorned some bathing suits and ever cover-ups, creating a hippie vibe for the boho girl.
Straps were everywhere on the runways evoking a playful sensation.
- Creative Coverups
Because a beach attire is never complete without a fun cover-up!
