The Sexiest Swimwear Trend: Crochets And Knits

Knit It Right

Knits in summer seems like a contradiction, but when seventies boho meets sexy swimwear in crocheted one and two pieces, it’s just right. Our favourite trend right now in swimsuits is feminine and fun, with lace, knit and crochet making their way onto your figure flattering suits in ethereal white and chic black.

The Best Suit For You

A white crochet-textured string bikini from Ralph Lauren will add curves to a boyish frame, while the more covered up Free People one-piece is perfect to mask a tummy trouble spot. Go a little nautical in this Lisa Maree striped crocheted suit- we love the price and would throw on some gold-framed aviators and a flowing tan maxi skirt with this in a heartbeat. For pear-shapes and hourglass girls, the retro high-waist bottoms and bandeau top of this black Laura Urbanati suit will get you instantly beach ready.

Girlish Charm

Texture is key to an ultra-feminine look, and there is just something about the ethereal goddess quality of a crocheted, lace or knit suit we can’t get enough of. Pair with shimmering gladiator flats, pretty aqua-lacquered nails and retro round-frame sunnies, and pile on the bracelets and baubles for one unforgettable summer look. Will you dip into the knit beachwear trend this summer?
