One of the most-searched topics here at Creative Fashion is the swimsuit trends. At least a season before summer, I have a whole lot of ladies dropping over for a glimpse of what swimsuit styles to rock. This year, I don´t want to disappoint. I don´t want to be late in featuring the beachwear trends for 2016 because I know how exciting it is to shop early when you´re so looking forward for your summer vacay.
So here are the top five styles of swimsuits + a cover-up that are trending this summer.
1. the classic black and white swimsuit

Step back, classic back. This year isn´t about classic minimalism but about classic black and white in stunning monochrome prints. So think black and white stripes, zigzag prints, diagonal lines and polka dots. The bolder the print, the trendier your black and white.
2. the classic print swimsuit

This trend includes anything one piece – whether it´s modest + full-covered or bandeau – featuring stunning summer prints. Your options include floral, paisley, and anything in between.
3. the sporty swimsuit

Staying fit and active is becoming the hottest trendy thing for women more than ever. If you´re not doing sports or exercising, it´s like you´re missing out on something, well, of-the-moment. But more than just conforming to the trend, what´s important is you prioritize your health and you´re spending me-time in a worthwhile manner.
If you´re into sports, or if you´re considering jumping into it, get inspired this summer by treating yourself with a nice sporty swimsuit.
4. the boho chic swimsuit

Boho is a trend that has its own world. It doesn´t matter if it´s the hottest on the runway on not, it´s not going anywhere. You either love it with all your heart or hate it, but there´s one thing you can´t deny, boho chic is always creative + expressive.
Express yourself at the beach or a pool with a never boring boho chic swimsuit.
5. the cutout swimsuit

Cutout swimsuit is not for the faint hearted. But you know what? What´s really impressive about the cutout style is its being a body-type friendly style. Whether you´re slim or voluptuous, you can definitely rock the cutout as a whole piece or two-piece.
6. the boho coverup
Kenneth Cole / MILLY / Maaji / La Blanca / O’Neill
The swimsuit cover up is something you should ignore because it has the power to level up your beach look. Think about taking a stroll around the souvenir shops already clad in your swimsuit. You´ll feel more confident and proper if you have a gorgeous cover-up dress atop your swimwear, something you can easily and quickly remove before splashing into the water.
Now tell me, ladies, which swimsuit style for 2016 are you?
