The Swimwear Trends of Summer 2021 You'll See Everywhere

Like the little black bikini 2.0.

swimwear trends 2021

Setting our sight on seasons ahead is what we do best at Marie Claire —and that means getting a jump on the spring/summer 2021 trends. For now, we don't know what summer will hold, but finding new ways to stay cute and cool in your yard or atop your roof will likely come down to a few things: grabbing a swimsuit, some shades, and a can-do attitude. While we hope that the warm weather season is filled with beach trips and poolside BBQs, we know that fantasizing about what kind of swimsuits we'll be summering in is basically half the fun. Ahead, we've got the swim trends you'll be eager to weave into your swimwear arsenal in the months ahead.

The Little Black Bikini

Investing in a sophisticated black two-piece is the beach and poolside equivalent of a little black dress. This spring, designers are presenting even more options for the black bikini, with a major focus on a high-waisted silhouette.
