Vin­tage in­spired, high waisted swimwear.

If you are sick of wear­ing your string bikini to the beach, it is time to opt for a high waist swim­suit. As the run­ways have shown, de­sign­ers have looked to retro styles for in­spi­ra­tion and the same goes for the ‘It’ swim­suit of the sea­son. The high waisted sil­hou­ette em­pha­sizes and flat­ters each and ev­ery beau­ti­ful curve. This makes this style of swim­suit the most fem­i­nine suit on the mar­ket.

Mara Hoff­man, In­vista, Sirenes De Soleil, Zim­mer­mann and Michael Kors swimwear all have a rather retro in­spired style about their pieces, while main­tain­ing a mod­ern take. Michael Kors S/S 2017 run­way show left view­ers and fash­ion­istas alike smil­ing and up­lifted. Kors through peppy mu­sic, col­or­ful and breezy pieces made you feel like you were on va­ca­tion. This was made even more so by the swimwear he sent down the run­way. His swim­suits were high-waisted with a retro ‘It’ girl vibe about them. Some were belted, some were paired with a bikini top, and some were matched with a long sleeve top. Paired with a match­ing bag, you could eas­ily see your­self wear­ing it with an over­sized knit once the evening hit.

High waisted swim­suits do not have to be all ma­te­rial. If you’re look­ing for some­thing a lit­tle more edgy or sexy, look to a bot­tom with cut-outs or with lac­ing up the side. This style of swim­suit is classier and you’re still able to show some skin while main­tain­ing shape and beauty. This style adds def­i­ni­tion at the waist and helps cre­ate the ap­pear­ance of curves at the hips.

Choos­ing a style with hor­i­zon­tal stripes will also add to this ‘hour­glass’ ef­fect. To keep high waist bot­toms feel­ing mod­ern, wear them with a sim­ple tri­an­gle top. How­ever, to em­brace the vin­tage feel, go for a struc­tured or hal­ter neck style, a flat­ter­ing and fresh style that you can def­i­nitely make your own. Don’t be afraid of pat­tern ei­ther, or go for muted color block­ing for a more so­phis­ti­cated feel.
