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.

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.
The North Face, $55
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.
Orlebar Brown, $205

Playful prints are a popular choice among men, but the biggest tip this year is to pick something with small embroidery. It’s sure to add that casual charm without looking too child-like.
