Thanks to the Kardashian-Jenner effect, this trend is, by the far, the most popular. A high-leg cut is perfect for those who love showing off their pins. If you want to try the look but are shy about showing off your gams, opt for a printed style. H&M, $30.


2. Cool Crochet

Choose a crochet bikini for the Coachella feelings without actually going to Coachella. If you really want to be the star of the beach, make sure you go for a nude shade — which is also a huuuuge trend this summer. Free People Farah Bandeau Bralette, $160. 


3. Mesh Magic

Summer is allllll about showing off some skin, so it’s not surprising that mesh swimsuits are super hot this season. They’re sophisticated and awesome for those who want to reveal a little skin but not a lot. Target, $42.


4. Fun Florals

A classic tankini silhouette feels fresh, feminine and fun with floral details. Choose one with ruffles for added chicness. Kohl’s, $37.


5. Haute High-Neck

A high-neck swimsuit is not only ultra flattering for all shapes and sizes, but it’s also a show-stopping suit that is sure to turn some heads at the beach — especially in a totally rad print like tye-dye. Nordstrom, $90


6. Wonderful White

A one-piece white swimsuit is one of the must-have pieces of the season. It’s chic, cool, and sophisticated — and Kardashian-approved. Choose one with unique cut-outs for the ultimate stylish statement. ASOS, $34.


7. Super Stripes

Stripes of all sorts — from seersucker to nautical — are always a classic fashion statement. Whether you’re wearing a bikini or a one-piece, a striped suit is an awesome print for the summer that easily makes an amazing impression. J. Crew, $110.


8. Mega Metallics

Choose a gorgeous metallic swimsuit for a shiny statement that is sure to make you the Gigi Hadid of the pool party. The opulent feel of the shiny fabric will make it feel as if you should be partying in the Hamptons. Forever 21, $9 (bottoms).


9. Sweet Swim Dress

You can totally make a rad fashion statement with a swim dress. A throwback from the past, it’s chic, cute yet modest. For bold statement, choose a colorful print, like tribal. Macy’s, $144.


10. Neat Neoprene

While neoprene originally stemmed from wetsuit material, the look is sporty, surfer-y and super flirty. With this trendy look, the brighter the color of the suit, the better. ASOS, $12 (top).
