Belted swimsuits are set to be one of this summer’s hottest trends at the beach, after sweeping Instagram.
Cult brands including Hunza G and Solid and Striped are among those championing the flattering retro-inspired swimsuit at the moment.
Hunza G’s £135 Solitaire embellished seersucker swimsuit features a flattering fabric belt, along with a chic tortoiseshell buckle.
Meanwhile, Solid and Striped’s one-pieces, which cost between £145 and £165, have a statement belt that nips in the waist.

Instagram stars have been quick to champion the belted swimwear look as they hit the beach this season, including model and singer Caroline Vreeland.
Speaking about the new trend, celebrity stylist Rochelle White told FEMAIL: ‘I feel that swimwear is really becoming more than just beach and pool side worthy and becoming more fashion driven.
‘A lot of the swimsuits are really reminding me of old school glamour with the details and style.
‘It is great that is is both fashionable and functional while on holiday.’

It comes after an unusual new ‘V-bar’ bikini trend was spotted on a number of Instagram stars earlier this year.
Australian label Bamba was one of the first designers to showcase the trend, with their AUD$79 (£43) Vino top.
Other brands have now followed suit with their own versions of the V-bar design, including British retailer Missguided.
Speaking about the ‘V-bar’ design, Rochelle previously told FEMAIL: ‘Not only does it create a flattering shape to the bust area it adds a nice amount of cleavage, without looking too in your face.’
