Not unlike underwear, swimwear is something that's very personal. Shopping for a new suit isn't always as simple as picking a one-piece over two. There are fit concerns to keep in mind, new brands to look into, and of course, trends to consider.
This year's biggest swim trends are all about making a statement poolside or on the beach (or with your regular clothes, because why not?): floral prints closer to wallpaper than actual nature, geometric cutouts on slick one-pieces, rainbow-grade stripes, ribbed fabrics, ruffled or otherwise accented statement shoulders, and sleeved suits. And you can find takes on each of them at different budgets, from affordable brands like Swimsuits for All and Aerie to designer favorites like Solid and Striped and Chromat.
