Here at Diamond Beach we live for the summer and everything that goes with it. One of the most important items in any summer lovers wardrobe is Swimwear.

The summer 2018 swimwear trends cover every possible aspect and personality that could want to make a debut. Swimwear is a notoriously personal item capable of showing off much more than skin. Personality is always evident in a person’s choice of bathing suit. Thankfully the options for the spring/ summer 2018 swimwear trends include one and two pieces with an expansion of imaginative styling. The rise of the one piece is in full force as well, and each of the designs is stunning with options to flatter everyone. From sunbathers to surfers and models to the more modest, the summer 2018 swimwear trends strategically cover it all.

ONE SHOULDER

One-shoulder swimsuits are hardly new as a concept, though as with everything that cyclically emerges as a trend, the concept is infused with a fresh new take. With Luli Fama, the one-shoulder two piece that hit the runway was lightly pink, nearly nude, with a single shouldered top that featured a short sleeve on one side and a tie on the other, technically making it a string bikini. It was cute, fun and different. Lybethras showed a one-shoulder bikini with a few straps as an accent, and For Love & Lemons showed a cute printed one-shoulder top as well.

MATCHING SWIMWEAR AND COVERUPS

Acacia ran with the concept of full look coordination for the 2018 swimsuit trends. The runway show features tons of stunning options in coordinated, eye-catching prints. The cuts ranged, allowing options for everyone with accompanying cover-ups of varying lengths and styles for multiple body types.

Our Diamond Beach bikinis feature unique and bespoke Diamond Inspired prints each bikini can be paired with the Sunny cover midi dress and the Diamond Beach scarf in matching prints.

STRING BIKINIS

String bikinis for the summer 2018 are trending with a lot more strings than before. The designs, which may make them less ideal for tanning unless intricate tan lines are your thing, are still a lot of fun. The best thing about string bikinis is the functionality of some, if the laces are real, not decoration. Need a bit of space, adjust the lace. Frankies Bikinis had plenty of options, of course. Luli Fama featured string bikinis with a plethora of designs on hips and busts, lace-up tops and even some with a little tassel on the end, covering more than one trend again!

The Isla string bikini is at the top of your beach wardrobe for summer 2018. From the classic triangle bikini style to the beautiful gold trim on the shoulder straps and hips. This piece will be a vacation essential for years to come. This bikini comes in a beautiful hot pink and coral.

TAKE THE PLUNGE

One pieces are cute, but when you want to add a touch of oomph to your suit, think plunging necklines, which are one of the best summer 2018 swimwear trends to go for!For Love & Lemons showed a white belted, plunging neckline one piece. The neckline was framed in a loose ruffle, and the bottom of the high-cut bathing suit was also intricately textured. Luli Fama showed a sheer and bright one piece with a plunging neckline as well as a turquoise, high-cut, deep-neckline one piece.

There were others, and deep necklines have become a bit of a regularity. Liliana Montoya, Lila Nikole, Frankies Bikinis, Blue Life Swimwear, Mikoh, and Goosberry each showed at least one deeply plunging neckline on their interesting one-piece swimsuits. We have some beautiful new arrivals coming soon to Diamond Beach and a one piece swimsuit to die for so watch this space.

STRIPES

Swimwear always includes patterns, and one of the most predominantly seen patterns on the summer 2018 swimwear runways was stripes. One- and two-piece options came in striped prints, some placed strategically, some covering the entirety of the swimsuit. Gottex, for example, showed gem-like colors in stripes on swimsuits and cover-ups. Hammock featured a striped top on a high-waisted two piece. Sinesia Karol manipulated the stripes to follow the shape of the strapless top and still featured them horizontally on the bottom. For a classic style that never goes out of fashion, look no further than the Lizzie bikini.
