Happy 4th, everyone! I consider the Fourth of July the official kickoff to beach season, so I rounded up some of my favorite swimsuits from this year’s collections. Whether you’re a one-piece girl, a sporty swimmer or a two-piece loyalist, there’s something for everyone here that will make you look and feel confident on the beach or at the pool.
(Or this TAVIK Chase one-piece)
The simple coloring is super flattering for any body shape.
I love the retro print, and the underwire makes this a good pick for anyone looking for a little extra support.
This smart suit has internal boning and padded cups—and a fresh print that puts a modern spin on gingham.
You can’t go wrong with a great color and simple cut. Bonus: The straps can be worn either straight or crossed, so you can mix it up at will.
The super-high cut will make your legs look like they go on for miles.
With a simple, but truly stunning design, this piece is a work of art, and will make you feel totally feminine.
A clean cut always looks modern.
The geometric print on this comfy bikini will definitely turn heads.
A ruffled bandeau and sleek bottom in a punchy bright print are playful and elegant at the same time.
Nothing says “summertime” like sweet strawberries—or an equally sweet high-waisted bikini.
I love this fresh take on the classic striped bikini from one of my favorite brands.
Same’s “Skin” collection looks like just that: a second skin, only better.
The surfer-girl floral print screams “Malibu cool.” (And let’s be honest, wouldn’t we all rather be in Malibu?)

The bows on this two-piece are pure romance.
This sherbert-colored, sporty suit straddles the line between bikini and one-piece.
I love that this cut showcases the top (aka more flattering!) part of the stomach.
The pretty details (bowed sash, double bands in the back) are what make this suit special.

Calling all 80s-obsessed badasses out there: This is the super-sexy cut for you.

The retro styling is inspired by the likes of Jane Birkin and Twiggy. In other words, this suit exudes confidence and glamour.
A subtle showing of skin and a racerback construction make this an ideal pick for anyone trying a cutout design for the first time.
