Ready or not, it’s swimsuit season. Stop thinking about your cellulite and start getting excited for some fun new trends that will have you feeling fabulous. Trust us, these three new looks will bring a smile to your face, which is the perfect accessory to a bathing suit. 

Tribal Prints

Mara Hoffman is one of the hottest swimwear designers now. Luckily for us, her collections are sold in many boutiques in the area — including Petticoat Lane and Everything But Water. Her graphic prints make a bold statement, and cool unexpected cutouts bring some added flair to your typical bikini or one piece. Pair a swimsuit with a fabulous cover up in the same print and you’ll no doubt be the hippest sunbather on the beach.

One piece cut-outs

The one piece is no longer just the no-nonsense basic option for your conservative Lands End grandmothers or Speedo high school swimmers out there. This year the tank has stepped out from behind the shadow of the bikini to be the hottest choice for swimwear. Bold cut-outs and necklines that dive to the navel make the one piece the choice for ladies looking to flaunt it, not cover it up.

Rash Guards

Since the one piece has gone the way of the bikini, with all its flesh baring accents, conservative beach goers and athletic types can get on board with the biggest trend of all — the rash guard. Whether you’re a surfer chic, or just want to look like one, the rash guard has you covered. The days of logos and tacky Hawaiian prints are long gone. Rash guards these days look so chic you’ll be tempted to wear them off the beach.

Get suited up in the best styles at our favorite local swim shops. After all, fit is key for swimwear so a helpful hand and a full size mirror are musts in your quest for the chicest and most flattering swimsuit. But if you prefer to shop in private, we recommend J.Crew for fun, preppy looks and Calavera for stylish bikinis that perform well if you decide to get up from the beach towel and hit the waves.
