A new year brings fresh new trends and brand new beachwear collections land at Coco Bay. We’re taking a look at 5 key holiday trends we are loving for 2018.
From romantic floral blooms on your one-piece swimsuit to botanical print on your bikini, these 5 top beachwear trends are all you need to get set for holidays this year. Whether you are heading off for some Winter sun, a European weekend beach break or a long haul hide-away, we have the perfect beachwear look for you.
1. Feel the Romance
Inspired by the “romantic blooms of a coastal garden in Summer”, the romance trend sees a palette of soft peach complimented by a statement floral print. Complete this pretty style by adding fresh, white accessories like this Seafolly Fedora Sun hat with it’s pretty braided detail, and a pair of classic white Havaianas Flip Flops.
The one-piece swimsuit has been enjoying a moment which isn’t showing any signs of stopping in 2018. The Seafolly Modern Love Swimsuit perfectly channels the romantic look and manages to combine feminine charm with a truly sophisticated style. The bikini features a range of mix and match separates including the new Longline triangle top style featured below, plus the ever popular twist front bandeau.
Keep your nails feminine and classic with either a subtle nude or a beautiful bright red. For the ultimate in hardwearing, beach proof nail varnish, we can personally vouch for Beach Toes being the best on the market. Don’t forget to finish with the Jelly Fish Supercoat or Salt Spray top coat for a truly chip resistant finish that will last for weeks.
2. Taste of Teal
A bright and bold colour block bikini is the perfect place to start when compiling a fail safe holiday packing list. This beautiful Teal bikini by designer swimwear brand, Moontide is a versatile choice and would be perfect for a paler complexion whilst still showing off a darker sun kissed skin. We know you love this flattering and easy to wear bikini as it quickly sold out after first going on sale. We are now very pleased to have it back in stock, but be quick, we have a feeling it won’t be around for long.
Compliment this stunning Teal bikini with bright white accessories such as this Paper Braid Straw Sun Hat by new brand Sun N Sand, coordinating nail varnish and a fun, striped beach bag.
3. Sahara Style
The print on this stand-out swimwear collection by Seafolly takes it’s inspiration from the intricate textile design of the Bedouin nomadic people. The Sahara Nights swimwear collection features an extensive mix of swimwear styles including the Seafolly classic bandeau, triangle bikini top, two different D+ cup size options plus a choice of one-piece swimsuits and tankinis. We know this collection offers something for everything and is one of our best selling prints of 2018 so far.
The Sahara Nights collection presets the perfect mix and match opportunity and going back to a Seafolly plain black pant (formerly known as the Seafolly Goddess collection).
Combine this stunning Sahara nights swimwear print with a beautiful aqua kaftan, some trusty Havaianas flip flops plus the ultimate in beachwear chic, a Hipanema bracelet.
4. Boho Beach
The Boho Beachwear trend is one that never goes out of style. Think long, dreamy barefoot days, followed by balmy nights relaxing by the bonfire on the beach.
We can’t get enough of Miami based beachwear brand Skemo and their beautifully crafted, bohemian range of beach dresses, ruffle tops and beach trousers. We are always on the look out for new and inspiring beachwear brands that offer something a little different and we were thrilled to discover Skemo on our latest visit to the Miami beachwear show. Coco Bay are now proud to be the only UK stockist of Skemo beachwear and our customers response to the products has been incredible. Skemo are without a doubt a brand not to be missed.
Complete your boho beachwear look with an oversized slouchy beach bag and some boho blue beach toes.
Now for the best news, no need to wash the salty water from your hair after a swim in sea, tussled beachy locks are key to achieving the ultimate boho beach babe vibe.
5. Botanical Bliss
The Botanical trend is showing no signs of going anywhere in 2018, and where better to showcase an on-trend tropical print than all over your fabulous bikini. We are in love with this Banana Moon Paraiso Palm Print bikini which comes in the ever popular twist front bandeau style with detachable straps for maximum tanning potential, plus a medium coverage pant with a flattering banded waistband and ties at the side.
Inspired by the image of paradise and taking a walk down a sun drenched beach, the print features bright bird of paradise flowers which compliment the green palms.
Compete your botanical holiday look with a crisp white kaftan and neutral accessories. Make sure not to over do it and let this statement from Banana Moon print do the talking.
