~with the latest bikini trends~

Because life's too short to wear last year's styles

The fashion world constantly changes to the point that it's hard to stay on top of the latest fashions and trends, especially in the bikini department. As we live on an island where it's summer all year round, we women need to stay on top of our bikini game. Here are the latest bikini trends from the experts – and by experts, we mean Vogue.

Bohemian

Show your inner hippy by wearing any bikini with fringes or ethnic prints to rock this category; style points if you accessorize a flower crown.

Wild cat prints

Not sure this style ever left, but show your catty side with a jungle cat print. Lions, leopards, cheetahs, tigers... you name it; they're cool.

Mixing patterns

Thanks for sending us mixed signals, designers. What used to be a fashion faux pas, mixing patterns for tops and bottoms, are now all the rage. This style is great because you can recycle last year's styles while still being trendy.

Multiple straps

Bring on the straps! Apparently inspired by the "Bondage" scene in Fifty Shades of Grey, designers want you to feel super sexy, and possibly secure with more straps than needed.

Zip-ups

Now making bikinis and one-piece bathing suits even tighter, zip-ups are tight, and easy to get in and out of; not to mention extremely tempting.

Statement bathing suits

Make a statement with these awesome bathing suits. Call yourself a Barbie, Wild thing or Total Babe? Say it loud by wearing it on your swim suit.

High-waisted

These are still in style – thanks a lot, Taylor Swift! Either way, they are a great choice if you want to hide those darn stretched marks and C-sections scars but still look too hot to handle.

Mesh or crochet

Show more, but still be modest with mesh and crochet bathing suits. Have the important bits covered when you're working on your tan.

Crop top

The crop top trend has spread to the bikini world. Embrace it! Hide even more pesky stretch marks while still being fashionable and irresistible; style points if you can find a zip-up crop top with a funky print.

While style is important, so is your self-image. Don't buy a bikini unless it fits you well, and makes you feel like the queen of the bikini world.
