woman-918532_640Do you have a winter sun vacation booked for the family? Is everyone looking forward to going away and escaping the often dull, bleak, and cold winter at home? With a sun vacation comes the need for a swimsuit, which is why we’ve got you covered with a look at all hottest trends for the 2016/2017 season. There are trends for every member of the family, even the kids. We’ll take a look at designer swimsuits, and the lower budget suits in this article.

Bold Bright Prints
Here’s a trending style that the whole family can take part in. Bold bright prints are showing up everywhere when it comes to swimsuit fashion. Think bright colors such as royal blue, purple, hot pink, coral, turquoise, and orange. What’s fun about the bold bright prints is that they also help to give you that sun-kissed glow by brightening up the appearance of your skin.

As far as what kind of print to pick, there seems to be a large selection this season and you can’t go wrong with any of them. Some of the hottest prints are florals, geometric prints, stripes and polka dots. Check out these Anne Cole swimsuits for ideas.

One Shoulder Suits
This is another trend that is proving to be hot for 2016/2017. This is a style both mom and daughter can wear. For moms, look for a suit that has a strap on just one shoulder leaving the other one bare. Typically, the side with the strap features a very wide strap to give that extra support and comfort. For little girls, the trend is to have to straps with one side being much thicker. It gives the illusion of a one-shoulder swimsuit without having to worry about it slipping down as they play.

A Touch of Frill
Also for mom and daughter, look for swimsuits that have a touch of frill or ruffle to them. It could be around the bust or waist. This is a fun whimsical look that works on all ages, including suits for babies. One thing to note about this style is that if you tend to be a bit busty, you probably won’t want added bulk by means of ruffles through the bust area.

Boarding Shorts
While this style isn’t exactly new it does prove to be fun and trendy each and every year. Board shorts are a great option for men, young boys, women, and young girls. Board shorts are shorts that sit a bit longer, usually just below the knee. These are not only stylish but they are excellent for playing in and doing water activities in. Just throw a t-shirt or tank on and you can go straight from the beach or poolside at your resort right to the buffet for a casual meal.

Don’t forget to incorporate the other hot trend, bright colors and prints, into your board shorts!

Halter Style Swimsuits
The halter style swimsuit has long been a favorite among women of all shapes and sizes. It offers excellent support, is stylish, and can make a suit look extremely luxurious or super sporty. Both women and young girls can wear this style and you’ll find both one-piece and two-piece options.

Swimsuits with SPF Protection
While this isn’t exactly a style of bathing suit, it is popular and trendy. Many bathing suits today have built in SPF protection so you won’t have to worry about the sun’s rays getting through the material. This is especially great when it comes to bathing suits for young kids. They tend to have extremely sensitive skin and can burn easy, so it gives parents peace of mind knowing they are covered.

These swimsuits also work well for anyone who will be engaged in water sports. Getting a sunburn is easy while you play in the water, so at least this way you know the parts that are covered in material truly are protected from the sun.

Beach Cover-Ups
Now before you grab your swimsuits and call it a day, be sure to pick up a great cover-up to wear with the suit. Women and girls have all kinds of stylish options ranging from loose fitting sun dresses, to wraps, to jumpers.

You’re Ready for the Water
Picking up a trendy and stylish swimsuit for each member of the family will be a breeze thanks to this guide. You will all look and feel great while you enjoy the sand, the surf, and the sun.
