Summer 2021 costumes: between trends and diversity


We know that the historical moment we are experiencing does not leave much room for lightheartedness, and although this year can undoubtedly be defined as an atypical summer, time does not stop: the summer is upon us. We will soon abandon heavier clothing and it is therefore impossible not to think about the summer wardrobe and the costumes that we will wear in summer 2021.

We all deserve a pinch of lightness. For this reason, continuing to keep our feet firmly on the ground, let’s take a look at the costumes and trends of this year, let’s do it without fear and with confidence towards the nearest future.

A costume for each of us

Between evergreen and innovation, we find some cornerstones of the costumes, such as the black bikini, the floral and animal prints, the high waist, the strapless bands but not only: the watchwords are inclusion, sustainability and diversity.

The most famous brands strive to embrace all types of physique without judgment, offering a wide choice. On the wave of body positivity more and more brands specialized in beachwear have chosen to enhance the body regardless of gender, size or shape, among these there are brands such as Reina Olga, Asri Swim and Chromat.

And again Rubies, a line of costumes dedicated to transgender people.

After years of absence from the beachwear sector, the US brand also returns in 2021 Victoria’s Secret who tries again with a line of costumes that speaks precisely of inclusiveness, offering sizes suitable for everyone.

Summer 2021 costumes: increasingly sustainable

The fashion industry is also increasingly attentive to the environment and is constantly looking for sustainable production processes and recycled materials.

For example Yamamay has decided to launch its first collection with natural organic fibers, bamboo and recycled fibers. While Tezenis has chosen to start helping the planet by using waste materials to produce recycled lace.

One-piece swimsuits: sporty ones and models that become part of the outfit

Designed to withstand even the wildest waves, i whole costumes they are designed in technical fabrics and sporty cuts to dress not only on the water’s edge but also during the sport in water.
