7 Summer 2019 Bikini Trends To Make A Serious Splash In

By now, you might've scoped out a handful of swimsuits that you want to add to your wardrobe come the first day of beach-appropriate weather. Before you take the plunge and snag them, review the below summer 2019 bikini trends to make sure you've selected at least one style that's set to be huge this season. Swimwear is cooler, brighter, and more intricate than ever before, so it's time to ditch that plain monochromatic triangle bikini I know you have in your cart and opt for something a bit more gutsy. We're in a sartorial time when more is more (you only need to look to the recent Met Gala for proof), so go ahead and get a little extra.

If brands' current offerings aren't already indicative enough of what's trending, just know that blinding brights, seriously wild prints, and metallic gleams will be dominating bikinis in terms of colors and finishes. Structurally, this season's got a few extra sexy surprises up its sleeves in the forms of lingerie-inspired tops and lots of unexpected cutouts. Check out the seven biggest biggest bikini trends for this summer below and peruse a few ace picks for each of them — you'll be glad you went for something bold.
