What Are the Latest Fashions, Trends and Styles in Swimwear?

It’s officially swimsuit season, and you know what that means: it’s time to freshen up your beach wardrobe! It can be tough to find a suit that fits your style and needs in stores, and they can be quite expensive. That’s why we’ve put together some of the best 2016 swimsuit trends that you can create on your own at home.

Summer Swimsuit StylesFringe

Fringe is very in, when it comes to purses and swimsuits alike. If you have an old suit in your drawer that could use some updating, considering adding a layer of fringe! The selection of spandex nylon fabrics at Fabrictopia is perfect for this project. You can use an online pattern or eyeball the length you’re going for to add an updated element to last year’s suit and make it perfect for this season.

Moroccan Patterns

Patterns are in, especially the Moroccan style. This style features bold colors and intricate patterns – it’s a look that isn’t afraid to stand out! We have a great selection of Moroccan-style fabric prints for you to choose from, whether you’re creating a new suit from scratch or sewing over the fabric of an outdated one.


Cutouts are in for all kinds of clothing this season, and for the summer, swimsuits are no exception. You can create cool, unique cutout patterns in a one-piece swimsuit by using any print of fabric as the base – just make sure you’ll be covered up in the right spots!


If you’re not a fan of the super girly, patterned swimsuits, you’re in luck: the sporty style is making a comeback this summer. Sporty suits are simpler, with simple single-color patterns, and comfortable shapes that almost look like sports bras. If you’re only thinking about comfort when it comes to your suit, try using our spandex nylon fabrics to create a cute and comfy sporty-style suit.

These styles are all the rage this summer, and Fabrictopia has all the fabric you need to get started creating your own new swimsuit for the summer, whether you’re making yours from scratch or updating last year’s suits with the latest trends!
