The hottest 2019 Spring Break Trends are all about statement colors, look-at-me prints and global-glam details. In short: everything you need to get ready for your escape to paradise!
The Trend: Bright Colors
When planning the ultimate spring break, feel free to go wild...with, ahem, color. Bright colors feel totally fresh right now, so plan on packing the rainbow and prepare to grab attention. Shades this strong mean you’ve got to commit to the look, so go big or go home (and we know you’re not going home).
Why We Love It: Pure, bright colors just radiate happiness, and when will you be happier than on a spring vacation, hanging out on the beach and splashing around in the surf? No one can resist smiling when they’re wearing the Pink Banana Leaf One-Piece Swimsuit. The leaf print’s cool green is set against a vivid pink background that delivers maximum chromatic impact. A monokini like the Orange Ruffled Cold Shoulder One-Piece is another brightly hued option. This ruffled one-piece features well-placed cutouts to make the bright orange color contrast against your skin color. For another of-the-moment look, mix and match multiple shades with a creative two-piece like the Green Polka Dot and Yellow High-Waist Bikini. The green bikini top is polka dotted for extra graphic punch, and the yellow bottoms will pop against a dreamy backdrop of white sand and blue sea.
The Trend: Smart Stripes
When it comes to this trend, staying inside the lines is anything but boring. On different types of bathing suits, stripes let you channel everything from understated Martha’s Vineyard chic to mellow 70s retro vibes to French Riviera-worthy glamour.
Why We Love It: For one thing, vertical stripes are crazy flattering and elongate the figure. There’s also a cool, crisp, clean-looking factor that makes the appeal of stripes hard to deny. But we’re mostly drawn in by this trend’s versatility: two-pieces like the Blue and White Stripe Bikini with Moulded Cups, with its ruched waist and twist detail at the top, can add a sophisticated touch to your beach packing list. And you’re guaranteed compliments in the Orange and White Stripe Bikini. The subtle stripes and the daring straps play off each other so well!
The Trend: Boho Vibes
Whether you’re heading to a concert on the beach or just want to embrace your free spirit while on vacation, the boho trend is perfect for you. Featuring unique prints and unique details, these swimsuit styles are “must-packs” for your big escape. Pair them with your favorite gold necklaces and chic earrings for the ultimate boho-glam beach look.
Why We Love It: Spring Break is nothing if not a week-long party, and this fun trend is ready to rock ‘n’ roll. Bohemian-inspired looks have been on our beach vacation packing list for a few seasons now, but if you want the most current update, go with styles like the Tropic Heat One-Piece Swimsuit and the Bless You Ruffled Bikini. These bathing suits dial up the drama by combining eye-catching graphic patterns with intricate accents like micro-ruffles in contrasting color or cutouts at the waist. This trend also lets you experiment with unusual textures, like the one on the Paisley Love Bikini Set. This two-piece swimsuit features a smocked top that’s perfect for pairing with cutoffs or shortalls for running to-and-fro. Another option that hits all the right notes, the Kokomo Crochet Trim One-Piece Swimsuit makes the crochet details stand out by casting it in a contrasting color on the back of this tie dye-effect maillot.
The Trend: So Extra
There’s no time like spring break to try out your most daring looks. This trend is all about celebrating the unconventional, being an original and flaunting it proudly on the beach. Why not wear your personality on your sleeve, er...strap during your vacation?
Why We Love It: Spring Break is about cutting loose, enjoying yourself and not giving any thought to the idea that you’ll be back hitting the books in a week. This trend taps into your ability to be truly free of constraints--something that rarely happens in the real world. The Oh My Love One-Piece Swimsuit is a perfect example of following your own path, even when that path is actually a boardwalk leading to the beach. Styled with a bright floral print that’s overlaid with white lace, it features a deep V-neckline and a sheer midriff. You might want to repurpose this one-piece as a bodysuit and pair it with a skirt for nighttime--it’s that much fun! Another bold and cute option that aces this trend is the Cherry Blossom Bowknot One-Piece Swimsuit. With its cutouts and knot-tied details, this charmer is all you need to pack in your beach tote to show off your singular, spectacular, superstar self.
The Trend: Sweet & Feminine
Flirty swimsuits with details like ruffles and lace look so right for spring break 2019. Plus, escaping the pressures of school to catch up with other friends on the beach deserves extra cute swimwear, don’t you think?
Why We Love It: Tuning in to our feminine side is one of our favorite ways to approach dressing for the beach. Lingerie-inspired details are particularly big this season, so get all the benefits of a bustier with the Vivid Floral and Stripe One-Piece Swimsuit Designed to be worn with or without the adjustable bra-style straps, this maillot features an ultra-romantic floral print and moulded cups for secure support. The finishing touches: striped accents and openwork details to lighten up this girly-glam look. Another favorite that’s ready for sand, sea and seduction, the Flirty Floral Lace One-Piece Swimsuit is trimmed with contrasting colored lace at the neckline for a dreamy final flourish. Do your suitcase a solid and make it work overtime as a bodysuit--this style would look just as good with a maxi skirt or skinny jeans as it would with a sarong.
The Trend: Solidly Chic
Don’t sleep on solid-color swimsuits, ladies. These pieces are the water-friendly equivalent of a Little Black Dress and always deliver impeccable seaside style. Seek out sculptural swimwear that features cutouts or special extras like ties or lace-up details. This trend is all about looking like you #WokeUpLikeThis, i.e. chic effortless style.
Why we love it: Sometimes keeping it simple is better. This is spring break after all, and school is hard enough already. Cute single-color suits like the Sweet Caramel Bikini with Ruffles don’t need any bells or whistles because the hue is so unique and beyond flattering on a range of skin tones. Bathing suits such as the Miss the Past One Shoulder Bikini make an appealing alternative to the print overload you’ll see at the beach. Scalloped edges and subtle basket-weave textured fabric make this maillot a perfect foil to your newly-achieved tan. Or try the Ruby Red Off The Shoulder Bikini, which showcases your sun-kissed collarbone and shoulders.
