High-Leg Swimwear is High Fashion
Want to look your confident best this holiday season without showing off lots of skin? The latest swimwear trend will be right up your alley. High-leg swimwear is back in fashion and cooler than ever. Stay demure and covered-up on top while svelte and seductive down below. From classic black to luscious leafy prints and even daring red, these swimsuits show us that showing just a hint of skin can be the sexiest fashion statement this season.
Singer and actress Vanessa Hudgens is no stranger to provocative style. Her latest Instagram shots from her holiday in Turks and Caicos is giving us serious FOMO, not just for the beautiful surroundings but more so for her simple yet super-sexy swimsuit. The high-leg design is this summer’s most flattering design which she wears with effortless aplomb.
A Taste of the Tropics
YouTube beauty guru Genelle Seldon shows off this tropical-hued one-piece with the simple caption “Palming you off”. The tri-colored design comes courtesy of Nasty Gal and ties in perfectly with the high leg, high fashion trend. The bikini line of this one sits particularly high on the hip bone making this one suited to the truly adventurous out there!
A striped swimsuit will never let you down. It’s the one pattern guaranteed to be a perennial style winner season after season. This black and white style from Missguided is especially striking against tanned skin, as seen here on Portuguese fashionista Bárbara Inês. The 22-year-old Lisbon native often shows off bright bikini options on her social media feed, but this simple two-toned number is tops in our books.
What sets American Eagle’s Aerie swimwear line apart from others of its kind is a commitment by the brand against any retouching of its swimwear shots. What’s more – social media users who share their own unaltered swimwear pictures using their #AerieREAL hashtag will have $1 donated to NEDA or The National Eating Disorders Association on their behalf. Actress Gabrielle Union is doing her bit for the cause looking every bit the stylish star in the process. She wears a black and white spotted one-piece monokini featuring a slight high-leg cut.
Ruffled Just Right
How about a swimsuit that doubles as a stylish piece of eveningwear with the right bottom added on top? This River Island one-piece swimsuit is the ultimate wear-anywhere summer essential. Casey Carlson of the blog Officially Quigley wears the high-leg design with some summer sass plus a few quirky accessories to really make the look come alive.
Here is a style that perfectly straddles the line between conservative and sassy. Manchester-born label Boohoo brings us this striking red swimsuit, as modeled here on Instagram star Oanna Popa. Featuring broad shoulder straps and a straight neckline, the trim shape is demure on top. Move downwards though and a high bikini line adds an unexpected sexy touch. The brand cheekily captions this picture “Leave ’em on RED” and, quite frankly, we couldn’t agree more!
