We know what you’re thinking. Tankinis, really? Yes, really, but these ones have a more modern look to them. Bella Hadid was one of the firsts this summer to break out her vintage tankini while spending some seaside time with friends recently, and we’re sure this is just the start. While the trend may be as polarizing as the comeback of low-rise jeans (those are sadly making a comeback as well), we couldn’t help but love the tankini trend for its nostalgic and wearable factors. You can get away with wearing your swimsuit top as a regular top and style it with shorts or a skirt. We’re totally here for the versatility.
While plenty of people have always loved the tankini style for its coverage and versatility, the new iteration we’re seeing now all have a fresh feel to them. Brands like Mikoh, Frankies Bikinis, and Ookioh have also released tankinis in bright colors and prints. Plus, the tops come in a shorter length which makes them more flattering. While the consensus is still up on the skinny jeans debate, we’re predicting this swimsuit rend is going to take over in 2021. Read on to shop some of our favorite selects ahead.
