The second the sun starts to crawl out from behind the clouds and hits our vitamin D–deprived skin, swimsuits are an article of clothing that instantly come to mind. Considering the fact that most of our swimwear hasn’t seen the light of day for many months, chances are a few of the suits you once loved might now feel a tad outdated once you pull them out from storage. In case you are due for a little spring cleaning—we all are, to be honest—we’re here to fill you in on the swimsuits you can safely toss should you want to make room for some new swim trends on the block.
With the guidance of some of the biggest swimsuit brands on the market, including Onia, Marysia, and Solid & Striped, we are here to present to you the old and the new swimwear trends of 2019. Now, just because these designers are claiming certain swimsuit trends are “out” doesn’t mean you need to immediately throw them away; they are simply stating which sartorial swim trends are gaining steam for the summer season ahead. Or, if you’re like me and you have way too many swimsuits for your own good, this list of what’s in and out for the year will be your saving grace for making room for even more swim goodness.
