The Biggest Swimsuit Trends For Summer 2019

Aside from the fact that it means the year is halfway over, July to me marks the time when you should have definitely been in a swimsuit by now. At least once. I love swimwear, and honestly, am amazed by how much it has evolved from a practical vacation necessity to an actual sector of Fashion. We see swimwear trends change as fast as the ~real~ fashion world, and ironically swimsuits are just getting more and more expensive. Never would I ever think that spending $250 on a glorified set of boob-and-butt-covers was a normal thing, but here we are. Scroll below for the only swimwear guide you’ll be needing this summer.
