Not only that but we have them right at the end of your finger tips to get a kick start to re-vamp your bikini collection.

Palm Prints

One thing we saw less of was floral and more of palm prints. Profession surfer and model, Alana Blanchard is wearing the Rip Curl “Westwind” Bikini. The hipster bottoms and halter tops are comfortable for the athletic girl that you are!

Keep an eye on this swimwear trend: cut out details. Some may be skeptical with cut outs because of possible tan lines, but let me tell you they’re subtle and totally worth the compliments on your ‘kini. Hailey Baldwin, Hollywood It Girl and model rocks the Tavik “Jessi” top and “Ali Minimal” bottoms for a cheeky look.


Billabong seems to get it right when it comes to trend setting. Crochet swimwear has been seen on top models like Kendall Jenner and Candice Swanepoel which means you’ll have to check out the Billabong “Hippie Hooray” one piece or two piece ensembles.

Statement Hat
