Swimsuit designs run the gamut from romantic feminine prints to bold color blocking with a stop along the way to pay respects to ‘70s-inspired crochet. Animal prints continue to stalk the fashion scene while metallic finishes are emerging. Minimalist cuts and high waisted bikinis are on trend, and, of course, teeny weeny bikinis are all the rage. Here’s what’s hot in swimsuits for Summer 2019.
