Last year, I was invited to take part in #RevolveSummer at Cuixmala in Mexico. With the promise of beautiful beachscapes to photograph, I sensed a fresh crop of swim field research was imminent. Swim destination? Check. A group of the world’s most influential women on Instagram? Check.
Last time I looked, Revolve offers almost 4000 different styles in the swimwear section of its site, so you better believe I was interested in which trends these women were adding to their carts. To prepare for the 2019 trip, attendees got to browse the e-commerce site and have their shopping-cart picks sent to them in advance (for outfit planning, naturally). Despite such a vast selection to pick from, some clear trends emerged among the group. Scroll down to see which styles gained favor (and a whole lot of likes), and shop the updated 2020 looks for yourself.

1. Apron-Top Bikini
The apron-cut top and dress are '90s-era trends that are back in full force at the moment. We love how the look translates to swimwear.
We called this trend at the top of swim season in April 2019, and it's only gaining popularity as we head into summer 2020. Equal parts style and support, this bra-inspired bikini top is a smart summer investment.
