La Blanca, $295



Retro-inspired one pieces with sleek little cutouts are making a splash this year. This option is both a figure flattering and stylish addition to your summer wardrobe.

Aerie, $64


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.

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.

Staying true to your go-to neutrals is the easiest way to get the most bang for your buck and pair easily with the rest of your wardrobe.
