The Swimsuit Trend That's Already Taking Over 2018

As we pointed out last year, one of the up-and-coming trends in swimwear is adding a belt to your beach-ready look. We first noticed the look thanks to Shea Marie–designed line Same’s black-and-white striped belt, which you can purchase separately and wear with a variety of bikinis or one-piece suits. Fast-forward a couple months, and we’re seeing more brands, such as Solid & Striped, including belts in their designs. (I’m currently wondering why I haven’t already added a belt to my swimwear collection considering I’ve been eyeing the trend for months now.) Whether you’re looking for a new suit for your upcoming vacation for an early start on swim season shopping, be sure to add a belted swimsuit to the top of your list.
