The Best Swimsuits of Summer 2016
From retro-inspired one pieces to sporty cut-away bikinis, here are 13 suits that are destined to make a big splash in summer 2016.
Solid & Striped Anne Marie
Perfect for: Pool parties in St. Tropez.
The lowdown: High-cut, ‘80s-style one pieces are back, and we can’t get enough of these gorgeous candy-striped suits from New York-based label, Solid & Striped. *Cue Baywatch theme song.*
Marysia Swim Mott Bikini
Perfect for: Sun-worshipping in Bodrum.
The lowdown: Nothing shows off a tan quite like a nude swimsuit, and this scalloped bikini is the ultimate complement to an all-over bronze glow. Pair it with lace-up gladiators and denim cutoffs for a stylish off-the-beach look.
Zimmerman Alchemy Bonded Flutter
Perfect for: Yacht-hopping in St. Barts.
The lowdown: Olivia Wilde, Kate Middleton and Kendall Jenner are among fans of red-hot swimwear label Zimmerman. We’re currently obsessed with this tasseled suit from the brand's Resort Swim 2016 collection.
Onia Kelly One-Piece
Perfect for: Snorkeling in Lanai.
The lowdown: With hidden seams, an unfussy design and quick-dry properties, this one-piece is our go-to suit for hitting the beach. After toweling off, go from beach-y to boho-chic by wearing it like a bodysuit under overalls.
Lisa Marie Fernandez Mira Ruffled Denim Bandeau Bikini
Perfect for: Sailing the Greek Isles.
The lowdown: Off-the-shoulder silhouettes dominated the runway this season. Take the romantic look from land to sea with this flouncey denim suit from cult swim and resortwear designer Lisa Marie Fernandez.
Lenny Niemeyer Appliquéd One Piece
Perfect for: Water ballet in South Beach.
The lowdown: This flirty swimsuit from Brazilian designer Lenny Niemeyer features 3D floral appliqué and a pin up-inspired shape. It's so pretty, we almost don't want to get it wet.
Onia Laura Choker Bandeau
Perfect for: Poolside posing in LA.
The lowdown: It'll probably leave behind a hell of a tan line, but this bandeau-style bikini is so on-trend, we're going to rock it anyway. Take the look from the pool to dinner by throwing a midi-skirt on top.
Mara Hoffman Criss Cross Triangle Bikini
Acacia Ehukai Full Piece
Perfect for: Riding the swells in Montauk.
The lowdown: East Coasters know that the summer months don’t necessarily usher in warm water temps. But slip into this fashionable rash guard from surfer-fave Acacia Swimwear, and you won't have to sacrifice style for comfort.
Chaser Palm Trees One Piece
Perfect for: Coachella Valley pool parties.
The lowdown: When you're ready to take the plunge, this deep V-neck suit will get you more than a few double takes. Just remember: fashion tape isn't just for the catwalks.
Perfect for: Rooftop tanning in NYC.
The lowdown: Having been featured countless times in the pages of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, MIKOH is the preferred swimwear brand of supermodels like Irina Shayk and Kate Upton. But the brand's sexy suits aren't just for A-listers. Known for their flattering cuts, supportive straps and full-coverage bottoms, this sports luxe label tailors to us regular-folk, too. We're eyeing this metallic bikini with creative cutouts and a shimmery rubberized finish.
Acacia Driftwood Mesh
Perfect for: Beach strolls in Maine.
The lowdown: Proving that neutrals are anything but boring, this blush-colored two piece is eye-catching in its own right. We dig its retro, high-waisted shape and perforated jersey detailing.
Basta Surf Bondi Reversible Bikini
The lowdown: Beach volleyball in Melbourne.
Why we love it: Get two looks for the price of one with this cheery bikini from Aussie swimwear brand, Basta Surf. (More money for poolside drinks!)
