When it comes to shopping for new bathing suits each summer, it’s always fun to experiment with some of the latest fashion trends. For a while, off-the-shoulder swimsuits were all the rage, now there’s a new swimwear style that’s taking over.

According to Swim Week in Florida, the most popular trend right now is velvet bathing suits! As seen from designers like Triangl, Solid and Striped, Seafolly, Olga Reina and more, these unique suits are the next best thing.

We have to admit, velvet would not have been our first choice of fabric for swimwear, but we love who chic this summer trend looks. What could be more high fashion than velvet bikinis?

If you’re all about giving this new swimsuit trend a try, we found 17 velvet bathing suits of a variety of styles.
