You guys already know I’m all about minimal, moody vibes except I’m not that moody IRL – promise! So when I started seeing minimal swimwear trends rise in the fashion world, I knew 2018 was my time to fully live out bikini season. If you pay attention to Instagram at all, I bet you’ve noticed lots of plain colors – blacks, whites, nudes, and earthy tones – and clean, geometric lines with asymmetrical portions. Yup, basically everything I love about clothes has transcended into swim and I’m not complaining.
No matter what your bikini preference is, there’s a minimalist version out there for you. The one I’m wearing above is from one of my all-time favorite brands, Mikoh. I can’t get enough of the sleek and cool but still very sexy designs that you can mix and match to perfection. From bikini separates to strong one-pieces, Mikoh is a minimalist girl’s dream come true (not sponsored!). Whoever told you black was basic couldn’t be more wrong!
Anyway, with summer in full swing and July 4 coming right up, it’s time to get your swimwear game on now. You can make a statement at the beach or by the pool in athletic-inspired pieces or sports bra-like tops. The understated simplicity makes a statement in itself and is great for pairing with your favorite summer pieces like my ruffle sleeve top. If you’re not into the whole nude palette situation, there are tons of clean options in bold colors and fun stripes. I’ve shared 6 of my personal favorite brands below that you can start shopping now. Even your most affordable brands like H&M and Topshop have you covered in the minimal swimwear department.
