1. Off the Shoulder One-Piece

Cold shoulder and off-the-shoulder styles are really hot right now in everything from dresses to tops, and swimwear is no exception. To rock this look, simply pair with your favorite shorts or skirt. You can dress it up even more by pairing with a pareo or lightweight cover-up. Bonus styling: wide, off-the-shoulder straps and an under-bust keyhole.

2. Metallic Details

Jewelry can be hard to wear to the beach or pool, instead try metallic details to achieve a similar “goddess” look. Metallic details are also great when transitioning from pool to party. This swimsuit offers a plunging neckline complemented by a metallic macramé knotting detail. Pair with shorts, a skirt, or use in place of a bodysuit under a sheer maxi cover-up.

3. See-Through Mesh

In swimwear, see-through mesh can be a sexy way to flaunt your curves without baring all. To easily move from “day at the beach” to “night on the boardwalk,” wear this Anne Cole one-piece under a long sheer maxi skirt, or layer under a blazer and with your favorite denim. The beach to bar options are endless.

4. High-Neck Tankini

Tankinis offer great ways to maximize your summer wardrobe as they can easily double as tank tops. Look for swimsuits, like this one, that offer eye-catching ready-to-wear details such as latticing, macramé knotting or cutouts. This style can easily be paired with shorts, a skirt or denim. High-neck swimsuits also offer extra support for larger busts.

5. Fit and Flare Tankini

Peplums are great to define your waistline and highlight your curves. Fit and flare swimsuits create a similar peplum look that slims and cinches your midsection. This suit combines a hint of metallic—one of the must-have details in a beach to bar swimsuit. Pair this tankini with your favorite high-waist shorts or pant to maximize curves in all the right places.
