The fashion industry has not been able to slow down during the decade that is known as the '80s. It is true that some fashion statements were made during that time, but they were not really ground breaking. In fact, many of them were considered ridiculous and were criticized by both the public and the media. Still, that does not mean that the decade was a bad one. Instead, it simply means that the fashion did not focus on one particular item or trend.
The decade started out with the rise in popularity of the tie t-shirt. The designers were able to create a new look with this clothing. T-shirts became hip and trendy and were the style of the times. A few years later, the bikini began to become more popular. Bikinis combined elements of the two previous looks to create one new look.
After that, came other trends such as the tracksuits and thongs. These styles were flaunted by both men and women. They were available in different colors and fabrics to suit the needs of both sexes. Some were even made with the help of Lycra. Lycra was once considered a safety hazard because it is known to stretch easily when being worn, which is a danger for the swimmer. Today, however, due to developments in fabric manufacturing, Lycra is considered a good material that provides comfort and durability.
Swim skirts were not as widely worn during that time because they were too revealing. However, the designers did include them in their collections. They were not as common as the other styles. They were more popular among the younger crowd. Bikini styles were not too common during that time either. However, designers did incorporate some of the other trends into their designs, such as fish net stockings and fishnet bikinis.
When the year 2021 rolled around, there were still plenty of fashion trends that went along with the new decade. The focus then turned to swimsuits that were comfortable and elegant looking. Women's skin and stretchable fabrics became very popular options. Bikinis, one of the favorites, gained popularity, too. Many designers combined various styles and fabrics into one and produced amazing designs.
Another trend was the addition of stretchable and silky fabrics to suit more body types. It was also important for these swimsuits to look sporty and sexy. There were also a lot of new embellishments added to the garments, such as embroidered patterns and ruffles. Other options available for women included nylon straps, elastic trims and sheer panels. These embellishments made the garments look fashionable and sexy.
Another trend for the decade was for bikinis that incorporated the latest technology. Special care was taken to immerse the body into the water without showing off the body. Designs that incorporating string and mesh were introduced. Some bikinis incorporated electronics to achieve the wet-look effect and incorporated a looser fit. They also added special effects like bubble wrap and cut out areas for better coverage.
As the decade wound down and the new millennium approached, the designs and styles for swimwear changed. For one, men started to put on bikinis. Women put on some of the stretchy materials for a sleeker fit and added special effects and embellishments. In the eighties, it seemed as if all styles for women's and men's swimwear alike converged to create one style swimwear. Today, it seems as if styles have come full circle and there are still lots of great options for swimwear.
Swimsuits are not the only trend that has come and gone. Swim pants have also changed quite a bit in the last couple of decades. For starters, designers stopped making super skinny versions. Instead, they made more tapered styles and added pockets and extra material to slim the waistline. Swim skirts also became very snug to avoid chafing from rubbing against the hips and shoulders and to improve comfort.
Swim dresses also became a craze. The designs became flirty, revealing and romantic. For starters, they offered stretchable fabrics that were cut to look fuller when worn and bikinis with backless tops or straps for that halter-style look. Designs also veered toward bold prints, bright colors and feathers. With the look of the eighties, swim dresses also had to be practical – meaning no string can be seen and no underwire is required.
While many styles and trends are definitely timeless, it is still a good idea to stay updated on what's hot and in. By doing so, you ensure your own style will not get left behind and you won't feel left out when you head out to the pool this summer. Swimwear trends are often very exciting and there is no reason why you should feel left out when it comes to wearing your swimwear. Get ready for summer and jump on the current swimming band wagon!
