This Bikini Trend Is Suddenly Dying

We've already highlighted the coolest new swim trends for this year and the swimsuits that are out, and ahead I'm breaking down the styles A-listers are getting behind—aka the most popular celebrity bikini trends this year—and the one trend that celebs are notably skipping.

Looking to celeb beach outfits, barely-there bikinis are being embraced in a huge way. String bikinis and triangle tops are being endorsed by celebs like Bella Hadid and the always photogenic J. Lo. On the other end of the spectrum, we're seeing celebs like Kylie Jenner and Emily Ratajkowski wearing inventive one-pieces that range from belted swimsuits to styles with cutouts.

The one style we're not seeing celebrities wear right now? High-waisted bikinis. The silhouette has been hugely popular in the last few years, but now celebrities seem to be shying away from the style. Go on to see the swimsuits the celebrity bikini and one-piece trends they're wearing instead that are already huge and shop pieces to get their looks.

Instead of high-waisted bikinis, celebrities are gravitating toward low-cut styles. We're seeing a huge uptick in string bikinis and silhouettes that have an early '00s feel.
