Calling It: Ballerina Swimsuits Will Be Everywhere This Summer

The ballerina trend is officially everywhere right now, from your leggings to your trainers to your jeans, so it's not surprising that it's also officially coming for our swimsuit collections. It's actually quite natural that ballerina-inspired swimwear would be a trend, given that many swimsuits resemble a ballerina's leotard as is.

And this season, it seems that swimwear brands are making a point to incorporate balletic details more than ever, with ruffles, blush pink hues, wrap bodices, romantic lace-up details and bows in abundance. To add to our confidence that ballerina swimwear is a trend in the making, leading it are a few majorly influential brands—Marysia, Solid & Striped and J.Crew. And if you're in the market for something a bit more budget-friendly, we found a lovely option at H&M.
