With summer just around the corner, it’s finally time to talk swimsuits.
Once considered a bikini’s conservative counterpart, the swimsuit has never looked more chic.
The cut out one piece is like the hybrid of two; it offers more coverage than a bikini, yet shows a little more skin than a swimsuit. The perfect middle ground, if you ask me.
We’ve already done a deep dive into the cut out dress and their rise in popularity recently, and the cut out swimsuit is no different.
The trend is already all over our feeds this summer, so now is your time get shopping before all the good ones are sold out.
Designer labels set the cut out trend in their swimwear collections, and as expected this has trickled down to the high street. With styles featuring pastel colours, bold prints and a high leg cut, if you’re in the market for one swimsuit this season, make it the cut out swimsuit.
While these once pieces are in high demand this season, they’ve been in the limelight for a few seasons now, proving they have real staying power. This year we’re seeing cool keyhole cut-outs at the chest, giving the classic swimsuit a fresh new look.
What’s great about these swimsuits is their versatility. They can easily be incorporated with the rest of your wardrobe, doubling as a bodysuit and styled with high waist trousers or shorts for an easy day to night look.
Ready to give the trend a whirl but don’t know where to start?
Don’t worry, we’ve done the hard part for you. Keep scrolling for our edit of the coolest cut out swimsuits to get excited about this summer.
