10 Beach-Ready Swimsuits for Every Personality
Bathing suits and bikinis that say something about you.
Summer, AKA that time of the year when you simply want to soak up the sun by the ocean every day, is approaching sooner than you think. We’ve all had that dilemma of not knowing what swimwear style to buy with a sea of options available out there. To help you get ready for the beach season, we’ve picked out 10 bathing suits and bikinis that suit different moods ranging from sultry to playful. Whether you’re an athleisure kind of girl or a minimalist, you’ll be able to find your perfect match.
In addition to Emily Ratajkowski‘s swimwear brand Inamorata, those who’re a lover at heart may also consider this floral one-piece ($510 USD) by Virgil Abloh‘s cult-favorite label, Off-White™. Featuring a scoop-neck collar and a racerback design, this style is essentially timeless. For a more whimsical alternative, look to Lazy Oaf‘s All My Heart bikini set. The short-sleeved top ($41 USD) is completed with a cute, lace-up back detail, while the bottoms ($35 USD) see a low-rise cut. You can even style the two pieces separately with other items in your swim wardrobe.
The Old Soul
Who doesn’t love a good old one-piece? If you’re a sucker for vintage-inspired designs, then you’ll probably fall for this retro Gucci swimsuit ($490 USD). Available in red as well as a bright orange shade, the V-neck silhouette is emblazoned with the Italian brand’s logo crest, and is finished off by slim, criss-crossing shoulder straps. In case this exceeds your budget, check out Tommy Hilfiger‘s equally chic Tommy flag swimsuit ($125 USD). Dipped in the brand’s iconic red, white and blue hues, this style is an absolute ’90s stunner.
If you can’t wait to show off those abs you’ve been working hard on for months, check out Nike Swim‘s Nylon Core two-piece ($58 USD). Coming in three different colors (our favorite is this azure blue), the sleek performance swimwear is equal parts athletic and stylish. Both the top and the bottoms are stamped with Nike’s Swoosh logo, of course. Stussy Women has also debuted its own sports-inspired Ari bikini ($110 USD), which arrives in neon yellow, coral red and black.
Some swimsuits are much bolder than the others, like Vetements’ double logo one-piece ($550 USD). Staying true to his off-kilter aesthetics, designer Demna Gvasalia has dreamed up this head-turning style with unique blue and navy trim at the bust, completed with a small hook fastening ALYX‘s white, off-shoulder swimsuit ($345 USD) also gives off a similar vibe, designed with the brand’s signature rollercoaster buckle at the back.
Finally, something for those who believe in the idea of “less is more.” When it comes to minimalist swimwear, emerging label OOKIOH has some of the best styles to offer. The tangerine-colored Seattle Top and Cayman Bottom (both $49 USD), for example, is just what you need to kick off the summer season. Another clean, pool-ready silhouette we love comes from Hunza G. Well-loved by celebrities like Hailey Baldwin, the brand has released a black, scoop back seersucker swimsuit called the Solitaire ($172 USD) that’s effortlessly chic. With a tortoisehell belt to boot, this one-piece is an instant classic.
