Sustainable Swimwear That’s On-Trend For 2023
Whether you’re planning a getaway now or looking forward to summer, it’s time to start thinking through your 2023 swimwear options and shopping sustainably should be top of mind. While many of your old suits will probably still be fashionable, it’s always nice to freshen up your swim wardrobe with a new suit, especially since suits–even well-made ones–wear out over time. So what’s trending for 2023? Look for suits that are playful and offer whatever level of coverage matches your mood. High-waist suits with a vintage aesthetic are on-trend as well as string bikinis with extra strings. Bold solid colors and fun prints are all fair game as well as the always classy black or striped suits. The following swimsuits are on-trend for 2023 and sustainably-made for bonus points.
