Terry Cloth

Striped Terry Pullover Bikini Top


We first got a taste of this beachwear trend when Hailey Bieber wore a terry cloth set from Frankie’s Bikinis. Now, the early-aughts vibe has moved over to *actual* swimsuits. Prep your closet for super-soft bikinis and one-pieces. 

Checker Print

Ingrid Crochet Bikini Top

Frankies Bikinis

Behold: my exact vibe. Mostly thanks to Olivia Rodrigo, the early-’00s emo trends are back in a big way, with checker print taking center stage. This bright green design combines the punky vibe with the color of the moment.


Lumiere 90s Balconette Bikini Set


There is nothing hotter than a lil bustier moment—I will not be taking questions. This trend has moved from lingerie to the prom scene and now it’s popping up allll over swimwear. Hot Girl Summer, amiright?!

Groovy Wave Prints

Plus Wave Print Frill Edge Bikini


Wanna know what Paraiso Miami Beach Swim Week looked like this year? It was pretty much just this exact print on every possible variation of swimsuit. Yep, this wavy, ’70s-inspired print is the absolute *hottest* of Hot Girl trends in 2021. 


Recycled Nylon Bella Bikini Top

Princess Polly

This trend has been, and will continue to be, the vibe. Strappy details give the wearer a nice little waist-cinch, which is probably why they’re stocked on basically every swimwear website rn. 

Sheer Cover-Ups

In the Shade Sheer Beach Maxi Dress

Oh Polly

See-through cover-ups are coming in *hot* in 2k21. Shop them in cool patterns and sexy details, like thigh-slits, ruching, and cropped sets.   

Keyhole Tops

Alana Top


To anyone who follows Tana Mongeau, this is not new information. The keyhole trend has been saturating your FYP for months. You can shop the super-popular trend for real or just wear your favorite string bikini top upside down. 

Puff Sleeves

Reign Top x Reign Bottom


Puff sleeve bikini tops look crazy chic, but also give the benefit of extra shoulder coverage (bye, burns!), while still allowing you to serve bodyyy.
