The "Naked" Swimsuit Trend Starts With These 10 Pieces

These bikinis and one-pieces speak to your risqué side.

naked swimsuit trends 2020

Just like the barely-there sandals that were on everyone's wishlist last summer, the barely-there concept is ringing true for swimsuits this season. Let me clarify: Details like super slender straps that look like they're about to break off, and swimwear with skin tone-like hues give you that almost "naked" look when you slip into them, are in this summer. And, when it comes down to it: less is more. Plus, the minimalist swimsuits are a totalnod to the '90s. Of course, this barely-there design is on the more risqué side for beach outings and pool parties, and they're not for everyone. However, if you're ready to embrace swimsuits that offer little coverage (and thus less prominent tan lines), we've found the best "naked" bikinis and one-pieces for you ahead.
