Everyone's favourite style.

Last Updated on March 27, 2023

When the sun starts shining brighter and the summer season comes into view (thank God), the first thing I start thinking about is bikinis.

I’ve already been browsing through swimwear from my favourite brands like & Other Stories, Arket and H&M, and I’m seeing countless high waisted bikinis. But the question remains: are they still in style?

Are high waisted bikinis still in style in 2023?

It’s a resounding yes! High waisted bikinis continue to be a popular choice as they offer a chic and stylish alternative to traditional bikinis.

In fact, many swimsuit designers have added high waisted options to their collections in recent years, further solidifying their place in our summer wardrobes.

Who should wear high waisted swimsuits?

At Wear Next, we believe you should wear whatever you want! Anyone can and should wear high waisted bikinis.

One reason they’re so popular though is that they flatter a wide range of body types. The high waistline helps to smooth out your midsection and create an hourglass shape.

Whether you have curves, a longer torso, or want to create a more proportionate silhouette, high waisted bottoms can do the trick. 

They’re not only practical, but they also have a retro look.

What are the swimsuit trends for 2023?

It’s exciting to see that high waisted bikinis are still trending, and what’s even better is that there are so many styles to choose from this year.

Black has always been a staple color for swimwear, but this year it’s hotter than ever. You’ll find endless options from black tie-side bikini bottoms to black high waisted bikini bottoms.

And let’s be honest, who doesn’t look good in black? It’s sleek, sophisticated, and a perfect way to make a statement on the beach. 

And if you’re feeling nostalgic, you’ll love the 90s-inspired trends that are making a comeback this year. 

Underwire bikini tops with high-cut bottoms are a trending silhouette that’s both stylish and comfortable. 

Cuto uts are another trend to watch out for in 2023. From side cutouts to peek-a-boo designs, adding a little skin can elevate any swimsuit.
