1. Belted Waist Swimwear
Utilitarians rejoice -- belts and buckles are IN this swim season. The classic swim- bottom silhouette just received a make-over with the addition of a perfectly-placed belt. For those who love a body-hugging swimsuit, this little detail accentuates the waistline and creates a gorgeous hourglass shape that’s oh-so-flattering on every body type. The bonus? It adds just the right amount of edge to your swim look without being too overwhelming. They say it's all in the details and the Fleur Bottoms are no exception.

2. Coordinated Coverups
We know it’s hot out, but a gorgeous cover-up can seamlessly take you from seaside brunch to beach, all while looking très chic. The novelty swim cardigan is making waves this season as we’re seeing more women opt for a complete and deliberate swim ensemble they can wear not only to the pool, but out on the town as well. Co-ord sets are everywhere we look, from leisure-wear to power suits, and luxury bikinis are no exception. Why shouldn't your swim cover-up be perfectly co-ordinated to your swimsuit?
So ditch the towel and grab a cardigan to keep you covered during your next trip and look perfectly-put-together while sipping your rosé poolside.

3. Pleated Swimwear Styles
Swimwear is becoming gorgeously multi-dimensional, in the form of ultra-soft swim jersey pleated into perfection, adding luxurious complexity to already flattering silhouettes. If you’re looking for a classic swimsuit with a bit of glam, a pleated piece is definitely the way to go. Offering an elegant look to your vintage swimsuit, box pleats are the minimalist’s go-to feature. Did you know pleating is a designer's trick to make the garment universally flattering? That's right! No matter your bust-size, shape or curves, pleats are flattering no matter what your body type is. They ensure the piece hugs your curves in all the right ways, and that's something to celebrate.
Dive into the deep end with exceptional style in this new swimwear detail.

4. Off the Shoulder
Off-the-shoulder tops are making their mark this season. We all have swimsuits that have a halter strap, strapless, or traditional bralette...but what about off the shoulder? New to the swimwear scene, this style is seen everywhere except the beach, until now. A subtle reveal of the shoulders adds allure, while the overall look adds a fun and unique take on your luxury bikini. It's a fabulous way to liven up your swim attire while remaining sophisticated. Even better yet, a swim top like this makes it super easy to transition from the pool to a happy our (as pictured with the Juliette Top). This top makes a stunning crop top and looks adorable while paired with high-waist pants. This gorgeous silhouette will add elegance to any swimwear style, and will have you absolutely swooning!

Fairly uncommon in the swimwear space, collars are making a huge splash right now. The novelty Peter Pan collar takes swimwear from traditional to unique. Taking center stage, a collar detail adds a bit of feminine glam to your swim, while remaining utterly perennial. Swimwear is more commonly taking on designs you would only see in your day-to-day wear, making it extra fun to experiment with your style on the beach or by the pool. That's what fashion is all about right? Expressing yourself and feeling your very best. We promise this unique and adorable luxury bikini trend will be turning heads no matter where you wear it. The best part? Swim Tops like the Bella (pictured) are equally wearable and equally chic when they're worn as a swim top AND paired with a high-rise bottom from your already-established wardrobe. A top like this will ensure you remain sustainable by purchasing multi-functional pieces (avoiding fast fashion trends), and look très-chic while doing so. A head-turning detail you won’t regret!
