17 Must-Have Bathing Suits for Beach Season

July is just around the corner, which means bikini season is in full swing. We’ve (naturally) done quite a bit of online perusing in the swimwear category lately and can’t get enough of these 2014 swim trends! Here are our four favorites, so you can shop along with us: 

High-Waisted Perfection

Our favorite part about the high-waisted bikini is that it flatters any body type! These bottoms accentuate your shape in all the right places, define your waistline, and tighten any tummy. Consider this style the LBD of bikinis. 

Cheap Frills

Any gal can look stunning in a little ruffled number. Whether you prefer a one-piece or a bikini, choose a suit that has ruffles strategically placed to show off your favorite assets. For example, want to highlight your collarbone? Opt for a ruffled top! Getting a bit cheeky? Go with frilly bottoms instead. 

You’re a Sweetheart

A fashion staple that never goes out of style? The sweetheart top. Perfect for any cup size, particularly for those that need a little extra support. Hint: it pairs well with high-waisted bottoms and looks equally chic as a one-piece. (Like that color-blocked black and white one above? Us too. Swoon.) 

Going Graphic

Saving our favorite for last, we won’t tire of graphic prints this season, especially the tropical ones! If coffee was a bathing suit, it would be a graphic bikini because we’re seriously addicted.
