Hey! I’m Karly and today I’m here to talk about girls swimsuit trends! Girls really have so many fun options, only your imagination is the limit! Now that I live in the desert and it’s quite a bit hotter than where we were before, my girls have been pretty much living in their swimsuits, so I’ve made quite a few more this year than I ever have.
There are so many fun options to choose from when making a girls swimsuit. Keyholes, flounces, colorblocking, ruffles, cutouts, etc. One trend I’ve seen growing in popularity is multiple back straps and it gives swimsuits a really fun detail.
Custom fabric companies are becoming more and more popular which gives so many more options for fabric prints too! One really popular combo has been florals with solids. Mermaid scales have been another really popular trend and I’m starting to see a lot of animal prints popping up too! Stripes I think are a classic that will never go out of style, which makes me happy too!
Another trend I’ve seen a lot this year is girls high-waisted two pieced suits. This is a great option when you want more coverage but with all the benefits of a two piece. Long sleeved cropped tops paired with high waists is another option I’ve seen but haven’t yet made up. I can definitely see why it’s popping up more though!
Lastly, long sleeved options and rash guards have been growing in popularity. These work great when you have a kid that sunburns easily and are in the sun a good chunk of time, like my Zoe. This is actually the first year I’ve made her a couple suits that aren’t long sleeved and well….we learned really quickly that that’s not really an option that works well for her, at least my Paisley will still be able to grow into them!
