As the end of January creeps up on us, we can鈥檛 help but notice that the days are getting just a litttttllleee bit longer. (Of course, no judgement if you gave in to Blue Monday and booked a last-minute tropical vacation!) But just because warmer weather might still be a few months away, there鈥檚 nothing to stop you from daydreaming about your new life as a mermaid swimming coach. (Yes, it鈥檚 a thing!)

You鈥檒l need a bathing suit to rock whether you鈥檙e on or off the job, however, so if you鈥檙e also already thinking about what style you鈥檙e gonna rock this year, there鈥檚 a trend you just might want to keep your cursor on 鈥 nudity, baby. Okay, okay, not actual nudity (though do you if that鈥檚 your thing!), but 鈥渇lesh-toned鈥 suits. According to Racked, searches for nude bathing suits are up 145 percent since this time last year 鈥 wowza!

The trend is thanks in no small part to Kanye West鈥檚 Yeezy Season 4 looks from last September, and the inevitable adoption by the Kardashian/Jenner sisters of the sandy, neutral tone.

We鈥檝e also seen the nude trend popping up in footwear and manicures, as well as pretty much *everything* in Oak + Fort鈥檚 new lines (which we鈥檙e drooling over nonstop).

Of course, 鈥渘ude鈥 and 鈥渇lesh toned鈥 mean a lot of different things for a lot of different people, and we鈥檙e hopeful that as this trend continues to take off, swimwear will adopt the same inclusive approach as Naja lingerie did with a beautiful line of nudes for every skin tone, or like Kahmune is doing with its new shoe line.

That being said, we just might have to give this nude swimwear thing a try!

Will you wear the 鈥渘ude鈥 suit trend? Let us know over @BritandCo!
