SWIMWEAR 2020 SILHOUETTE TREND REPORT
Let’s start with the 2020 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 2020? Bikini, tankini, monokini or classic swimsuit? Neither yet all of these! The most fashionable swimwear silhouette for summer 2020 is a retro hybrid.
Go through the 2020 swimwear silhouette report to see what I mean.
BIKINI or SWIMSUIT?
This question pops up every single year. Is 2020 a year of bikini or a swimsuit? Is bikini more fashionable than a swimsuit in summer 2020? 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 2020 the most fashionable swimwear is again a swimsuit. Yet not the classic one. The most stylish swimsuits of 2020 come with cut-outs, one-side shoulder strap, high cut legs. Yet the most stylish swimsuit in 2020 is a surfer’s suit.
Whatsoever, a bikini is still in style for 2020.
IS TANKINI IN STYLE FOR 2020?
Same as the tankini. Yes, tankini is back on trend for 2020. 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 2020. But I did find these chic cut swim tops.
ROMANTIC or SPORTY?
Nevertheless, romantic, retro silhouettes are, as said, back 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, 2020 is all about structured swimwear, underwired bikini bras, belts and details. Ps. More about details in the report at the end.
Nonetheless, 80s style simple swimsuit with thin stripes is stylish for summer 2020 too. Nevertheless, this swimsuit is an exception. All the other stylish 2020 swimwear is structured and not of a simple shape.

NEW SWIMWEAR TREND 2020 – THE PUSH-UP BIKINI BRA
Well, a padded push-up bikini bra is not really new. Although it feels new, doesn’t it? It has been ages since padded bikini bras were last time in fashion. Anyway, the push-up bikini bra is . Ps. I have already purchased all these padded bikini bras and I can assure you that they give the best lift. And yes, you can still go diving in these push-up bras. Still, you should know that it might be more difficult for you to get out of the swimming pool. I do have problems climbing up the leather every time I wear one of these padded bras.

HALTER TOP or ONE SIDE SHOULDER?
Although truth to be told, I bet you won’t be able to resist any of these one-side 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 2020. 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?
BOYSHORTS or BRAZILIANS?
HIGH WAIST BIKINI BOTTOMS
THE V 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. Even so, I bet you don’t have a V-cut bikini top yet.
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 2020. 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.
Another new swimwear silhouette for summer 2020 is a floss bikini. Wondering WTF* is a floss bikini? A floss bikini is a bikini top with extended straps that you can wrap around the waist. See and shop below.
Now that you know what shape your swimwear should be in summer 2020, 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!
CHOCOLATE BROWN SWIMWEAR
Chocolate brown is the most fashionable colour for swimwear in summer of 2020. Here are some of my favourite chocolate brown bikinis and chocolate brown swimsuits.
BEACHWEAR IN PASTEL COLOURS
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 2020.
BLACK AND WHITE SWIMWEAR
Can’t decide between white and black swimwear? Then better chose one of these swimsuits and bikinis below. As a matter of fact, a black and white swimwear is more fashionable than solid black or solid white swimwear this season.
METALLIC SHINE AND GLITTER
Yes, metallic swimwear is still in style for summer 2020. And it looks even better than last year. Shop these!
Find all these stylish colours, boring and monochrome swimwear too plain for you? It’s OK. Swim in florals or animal print instead. Yes, the animal print is still in style for swimwear.
SWIMWEAR IN ANIMAL PRINTS
Even though clothes and shoes in animal prints are out of style for summer 2020, that isn’t true for swimwear. Animal prints are on trend for 2020 swimwear. As a matter of fact, animal print is the most fashionable print for swimwear this season.
OMBRE AND TIE-DYE SWIMWEAR
The legit tie-dye, not the one that happened after you left your swimsuit dry without washing it before.
SWIMWEAR IN FLORAL PRINTS
Small floral prints to be exact. No, that big flower heads aren’t in style for summer 2020. But small daisies and other small flowers are.
SWIMWEAR IN PAISLEY PRINT
SWIMWEAR IN TROPICAL PRINTS
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.
SMALL GINGHAM SWIMWEAR
Gingham is back in style for summer 2020. So, yes, if you have a drawer full of swimwear in small gingham print, then you have a drawer full of fashionable swimwear. Ps. The gingham print should be small this year.
POLKA DOT SWIMWEAR
Another swim print that I love this summer. Isn’t that polka-dotted swimsuit just fabulous?
YOU WON’T BELIEVE WHAT IS THE MOST STYLISH 2020 SWIMWEAR MADE OF THIS SEASON
There are many new materials on the beach in 2020. While the most popular swim material remains nylon and lurex, you can also find swimwear made from recycled fishing nets, , and vegan leather now. Yes, . I told you leather is .
By the way, lace, terry and knits are also fashionable in summer 2020.
DETAILS TO LOOK FOR ON THE SWIMWEAR IN 2020
Forget all these 2020 swimwear trends. Your swimwear needs only one thing to be fashionable in 2020. It needs a belt. Or a rope – something that you tie around your waist.
Finally, the most stylish swimwear in summer of 2020 is ribbed and ruched. You know, the 60s vibes.
