Best Swimwear for Your Tropical Escape This Winter

Let’s be honest, choosing a new swimsuit can really put us in a good mood during the winter gloom, reminding us that an escape is just around the corner. But the world of women’s swimwear can be quite a quantum universe that is just as confusing to navigate. There is, however, a wormhole for you with a list of swimwear picks for your tropical getaway this winter.

Deciding which style to go with is a choice that should be based on personal aesthetic, function, comfort, and body type. Choose a swimsuit style that flatters your body type so you can feel amazing and confident all day long. Function is also to be kept in mind when choosing your new swimsuit. If you plan on spending your tropical holiday sunbathing, then go for a skimpy bikini. If you will be doing a lot of swimming or water sports, a modest one-piece swimsuit or tankini may be your best bet. These top picks for tropical-inspired swimwear marries function and fashion to find the perfect suit for you.

1. Crochet Bikinis

Crochet bikinis are sassy, versatile and absolutely adorable. Just thinking about crochet bikinis can transport you to exotic faraway places like Bali and Jamaica, where women in crochet bikinis wrapped in colorful sarongs are lounging around in hammocks sipping coconuts. Good news: You can be one of these women, too! Crochet bikinis are about a boho-chic as you can get.

Crochet bikinis are also versatile. You can wear one as a swimsuit or wear the bikini top as a top on its own or flashing from beneath that backless, plunging beach dress. Throw on a sheer kaftan cover-up to flaunt your goods yet still be appropriately dressed at the beach bar. You could also pair it with a high-waisted skirt and a cotton cardigan for an elegant, down-to-earth flair.

2. Prints, Prints, and More Prints

Few swimwear styles help you blend into the tropical vibes as well as printed swimsuits. Regardless of cut, printed swimwear looks fabulous on just about anyone. Prints have been appearing on all styles of swimwear for men, women, and children as a top trend for this season. A popular tropical print for this season is the banana leaf. Shop this style in multiple colors and all in shapes and sizes—just add water and you’ll feel like your own tropical island before you even arrive at your destination!

3. Slimming Classic One-Piece

One-pieces emit both an elegance and grace that reminds us of Hollywood classics like Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor. They are glamorous in style while still being functional, making them a great choice for swimming, surfing, water sports, or even just rolling around in the sand. Try a timeless color like black worn with a black maxi skirt for a monochromatic look. You’ll look incredible while lounging under palm trees and sipping mojitos at the bar. One-pieces offer coverage as well as offer a seamless, chic look whether you're lounging poolside or catching waves. Investing in slimming swimwear gives you a go-to piece any time of the year. Women love both the freedom and modesty a suit like this brings.

If you love one-pieces but want the freedom of a bikini, try a monokini. You can have the practicality of the one-piece while still being able to flash some skin and tan your tummy. If you want a playful option, then the monokini is for you.

5. High-Waisted Bottoms

High-waisted swimsuits have made a comeback and quickly become a favorite for ladies everywhere. High-waisted bottoms give you the freedom of a two-piece without showing more skin than you’re comfortable with. They also have the power to accentuate your curves and hug your hips. High-waisted bottoms are practical as they actually stay on while swimming or surfing. Wear with a patterned tankini top for more coverage while maintaining the feeling of a two-piece. Pair with a bandeau bikini top for a chic retro look that will keep you feeling fabulous and sun-kissed for your tropical getaway this winter.

There is a swimsuit for every woman! Try one of these great swimwear styles that are sure to enhance your tropical escape this winter.
