Racing Streetwear Motifs Speed Into Swimwear

Posted by Bikini Owner in bikini, black, checkered, racing, stripes, style, trend, white

There's no doubt that ready-to-wear carries an urban streetwear element nowadays. We witnessed the emergence of racing motifs at Tommy Hilfiger and Fenty's Spring 2018 runway shows. Then, of course, spotted the trend at last year's Coachella with many early-trend adopters embracing oversized cargo pants, side color-blocking stripes, and high-shine leather jackets.

And now, this unexpected NASCAR flair has officially made its way into swimwear. It's a fun take on the ever-evolving athleisure category with black and white checkers, long-sleeve zippered pieces and bold yellow and red additions. Even construction details like buckles take a more racing gear approach.

White Fox Swim relaunched their swimwear collection with looks that could count as race car uniforms with patent leather thigh-high boots and black, white, and red color combos.

At Frankies Bikinis, the Tokyo Drift theme couldn't convey this trend any louder — from the runway's race car display to the mechanic-inspired glasses and the street fencing inside the venue.
