Ps. I promise to make this swimwear trend report for summer 2019 as short as possible as I know you are already dying for going to the beach and jumping into the water. At least I am.
In fact, I’m already putting on my new swimsuit as you read this swimwear trend report. And yes, it is wired, cut and has a one side shoulder.
WHAT SWIMWEAR IS IN FASHION FOR SUMMER 2019
Anyway, let’s focus on swimwear that is in fashion for summer 2019 now. One-piece swimsuit with sassy cut-outs and one-side shoulder that I’m wearing as you are reading this fashion report is not the only fashionable swimwear this season. No, there are many more.
Yet, the same as last year, there are many trends that you can find in one single piece. Like in my swimsuit. But also in a bikini.
Whatsoever, here is the list of all 2019 swimwear trends you must know before grabbing a towel, your pool float and heading off to the beach or pool.
Well, lists of 2019 swim trends actually, since I divided all the summer 2019 swimwear trends into 5 different swimwear trend reports. You know just to make sure you get the whole picture and know exactly what to look for when buying a new swimwear for 2019.

A link will take you to the store where I found each of these swim pieces. Now tell me, isn’t this the easiest and the fastest way to shop for 2019 swimwear? I think it is!
Anyway, now that you know how to shop and how not to forget about all these swimwear trends let’s all scroll down to the 2019 swim reports.
SWIMWEAR 2019 SILHOUETTE TREND REPORT
Let’s start with the 2019 swimwear silhouette report, shall we? After all, we shop swimwear by silhouettes first, don’t we?
So what shape should your swimwear be for summer 2019? Bikini, tankini, monokini or classic swimsuit? Neither yet all of these! The most fashionable swimwear silhouette for summer 2019 is a retro hybrid.
Go through the 2019 swimwear silhouette report to see what I mean.
BIKINI or SWIMSUIT?
This question pops up every single year. Is 2019 a year of bikini or a swimsuit? Is bikini more fashionable than a swimsuit in summer 2019? Well, it’s not. In fact, a bikini hasn’t been more stylish than a swimsuit ever since swimwear designers came up with the cut-out swimsuit and monokini.
As you can see, in summer 2019 the most fashionable swimwear is again a swimsuit. Yet not the classic one. The most stylish 2019 swimsuit comes with thin spaghetti straps, cut-outs, one-side shoulder strap, high cut legs.
Whatsoever, a bikini is still in style for 2019.
IS TANKINI IN STYLE FOR 2019?
Same as the tankini. Yes, tankini is back for 2019. Although truth to be told, I don’t know who will wear it. Pregnant ladies perhaps. Tankini is great, stylish swimwear for those who are expecting. Apart from that, I think tankini is one of those swimwear fashion trends no one seems to care about. Not even fashion buyers since there are not many tankinis in the stores for summer 2019. But I did find these.
ROMANTIC or SPORTY?
Sporty! Chic surfer styles are back! No, your friend didn’t all the sudden became a surfer. Nor suddenly started to feel cold. She just read this swimwear report first.
Nevertheless, romantic, retro silhouettes are still in style as well.
SIMPLE OR STRUCTURED?
Well, I think we made this clear when answering the previous question already. But just to leave no doubts, 2019 is all about structured swimwear, wrap style and details. Ps. More about details in the report at the end.
Nonetheless, 80s style simple swimsuit with thin stripes is stylish for summer 2019 too. Still, this swimsuit is an exception. All the other stylish 2019 swimwear is structured and not of a simple shape.
HALTER TOP or ONE SIDE SHOULDER?
Both actually. Good to know right? You probably have a one-side shoulder swimwear already. So better shop for a halterneck swimsuit in 2019. These are my favourites.
Although truth to be told, I bet you won’t be able to resist any of these one-sided shoulder swimwear even though you might have 10 different one-side shoulder tops and swimsuits already.
BANDEAU or TUBE?
Is there even a difference? Well, I know it is, but bandeau is more fashionable than tube top in summer 2019. Still not as much as the one side shoulder tops and halterneck tops.
IS OFF-THE SHOULDER SWIMWEAR IN STYLE FOR SUMMER 2020?
SPAGHETTI STRAPS or WIDE STRAPS?
Spaghetti straps, for sure. In summer 2019 shop for swimwear with thin straps. Or ruffled straps. Yes, ruffled straps are still fashionable. Even better when the straps are ruffled. Like those on the swimwear in the gallery below.
BOYSHORTS or BRAZILIANS?
Forget the boyshorts. Brazilian briefs are the most fashionable bikini bottom.
HIGH-CUT BIKINI BOTTOMS
THE DEEP PLUNGE
Almost forgot the third most important silhouette of the summer. Even though thinking better, you know the V plunge already. It was fashionable last year already.
Retro, retro, I feel retro swimwear has been in fashion for so long that it stopped feeling retro. We should call it French swimwear next year.
Yes, a swim dress is somehow stylish in 2019. No, we didn’t see this coming. At least not on Instagram. But could a swim dress become IT thing on Instagram? If I get swim dress, and you too, it sure can.
2019 SWIMWEAR COLOR REPORT
Now that you know what shape your swimwear should be in summer 2019, it’s time you pick a colour. Or a print.
So what colour should your swimsuit be then? The Fashionistas are buying swimwear in these colours!
Mellow yellow is the most fashionable colour for swimwear in summer of 2019. Don’t know what colour is this? Well, it’s yellow for a start. But mellow yellow is not just one shade. Behind this name, there are three yellow shades. All of them stylish for swimwear in 2019. You can read more about them later in the official .
All you need to know now is where to get yellow swimwear. Here are my favourite yellow bikinis and yellow swimsuits.
No, beige, camel and brown aren’t fashionable only on the streets but on the beach too. Perfect for blending in, right? Look for swimwear in Camel, Sweet Corn, Soybean, Toffee.
Obviously, the white swimwear. Ps. If you go to the beach only once in a while, like on every four years, then get yourself a white swimsuit. For sure it will be still in fashion the next time you hit to the beach.
Unlike black. Black swimwear is rarely stylish. But it is in style for summer 2019.
Yes, metallic swimwear is still in style for summer 2019. And it looks even better than last year. Shop these!
SWIMWEAR PRINT REPORT FOR SUMMER 2019
Find all these stylish colours, boring and monochrome swimwear too plain for you? It’s OK. Swim in florals or hibiscus instead. Yes, the hibiscus print is big for swimwear too.
However, the most stylish swimwear print for summer 2019 is undoubtedly the leopard print. Yes, the same print that was the most unstylish swimwear print last year.
The legit tie-dye, not the one that happened after you left your swimsuit dry without washing it before.
Striped swimwear is still in style. Luckily! I did slightly over splurged on striped swimwear last year and have too many striped swimwear now.
Therefore I am shopping swimwear in retro floral prints for summer 2019.
If you are not the type of the girl who would spend all day long laying on the beach with a romantic novel in her hand and you would rather be eaten by a shark than seen coming out of the water in the vintage floral print, then this is a botanical print for you. The jungle, tropical print. Those palm leaves do feel refreshing, don’t they? Especially if you are laying by the swimming pool in the city instead of some tropical resort.
From lemons, bananas to my favourite figs and sweet pineapple and watermelons. You know, in case you can’t eat fruit, at least you can wear it. By the way, anyone on the keto diet?
Another swim print that I love this summer. I actually like to mix the polka dotted bottom bikini with a striped bikini top. Showing you how soon. But you will need to help me pick my new polka dot swimsuit first. I like these. Which one should I get? Let me know what you think in the comments below!
THE MATERIALS ALL THE MOST STYLISH 2018 SWIMWEAR IS MADE OF THIS SEASON
There are many new materials on the beach in 2019. While the most popular swim material remains nylon and lurex, you can also find swimwear made from recycled fishing nets now.
Furthermore, a Protec Swim Jersey® fabric that provides UPF50+ protection. I know, this sounds too good to be true. But it is! See to find out more.
By the way, lace, terry and knits are also fashionable in summer 2019.
DETAILS TO LOOK FOR ON THE SWIMWEAR IN 2019
Forget all these 2019 swimwear trends. Your swimwear needs only one thing to be fashionable in 2019. It needs a belt. Or something that you tie around your waist.
TOP #5 SWIMWEAR TRENDS FOR SPRING SUMMER 2019
To recap, the list of top 5 IT summer 2019 swimwear trends.
#1 BELTED SWIMWEAR
The belt trend is huge this season. Seems like we will wear the dangling belt on the swimwear too.
#2 ONE-SIDE SHOULDER SWIMWEAR
It could be a bikini or a swimsuit. As long as it has only one strap.
#3 LEOPARD SWIMWEAR
Even though there is no animal print that isn’t fashionable for summer 2019, leopard print rules on the beach.
#4 RETRO SWIMWEAR
#5 SURFER CHIC
I love this 2019 swim trend. Not only it looks chic; you can’t get sunburnt either. Many surfer chic swimsuits are made from Protec Swim Jersey® fabric that provides UPF50+ protection.
