Aerie, $64

Florals

Year after year, floral prints make a return to bikinis adding a colourful twist to your lounge chair essentials. The main focus this year is on wallpaper florals which delivers an elegant yet light, summery feel.

Dolce & Gabbana, $600

Animal Print

Bring out your wild side with a tasteful print as designers are making zebra, leopard, and tiger prints. This proves to be a timeless trend, so if you’re looking to refresh your bikini game, you can trust this will stay in style for years to come.

The North Face, $55

 

Sporty

The must-have board shorts this year include pairs that have stretch, pockets, quick-dry fabric, and adjustable waistbands. Practical meets style by doubling up as your workout short, keeping you cool and comfy on those hot, sunny days.
