Look, nobody loves to go swimsuit shopping. It can be anxiety inducing for everyone! But every body is a beach body, and why stress yourself out over something that should be fun? Whether you’re relying on a minimal one-piece in a flattering navy or black, or really going for it in brightly colored, tropical vacation vibes swimsuits, it’s time to rock whatever you feel the most comfortable in. And you can’t forget a cute coverup! Welcome to our summer swim edit.
Just because you’re going the colorful route doesn’t mean you can’t keep it minimal. This square-necked Everything But The Water one-piece in a hot Barbie pink is sleek and classic. J.Crew’s ruched one-shoulder in a pretty orange sherbet shade gives off goddess vibes.
Florals are all the rage this season, so dip your toe into the trend with this watercolor Tommy Bahama one-piece or this cloud-y floral J.Crew piece. The swim dress is a best-seller, and one of my favorites, especially in sky blue or a hot chili red. It’s flattering, it’s comfortable, what else could you want?
Black is universally flattering, and you always want a swimsuit to be flattering. This MiracleSuit with draped panels and mesh insets help emphasize your waist for an hourglass figure. Get a dose of Old Hollywood glamour with this Lauren Ralph Lauren black and white ruched one-piece. I always say leopard is a neutral, so why should that be any different when it comes to swimwear? This one-piece with thick straps is retro inspired and flattering. There’s even a matching beach shirt!
There’s no reason you can’t bring your a-game to the pool. Turn that concrete into a cat walk! Especially with a fashion-forward, fun printed sarong like this Farm Rio piece that you can wear out for drinks with t-shirt. Anthropologie’s collab with the Brazilian brand has a ton of cool options but I’m partial to this rainbow-and-chevron maxi dress.
Of course, you can’t go wrong with a bright white option, like this Everything But Water shirtdress or this Peixoto embroidered white tiered dress.
