Agent Provacateur
Lingerie label Agent Provacateur screams sexy cowgirl style with its “Stacey” bikini, a red and white gingham number with black piping. Its removable bullhead charm on the front of the top, and the sexy lace up detail on the bottom are perfect tongue-in-cheek touches. (Padded underwire top, $190 and brief bottom, $140 at Agent Provacateur)
Brooklyn-based indie designer Samantha Pleet plays with polka dots for this retro-inspired, ruffle-skirted ‘Siren’ swimsuit. Ties at each side help nip in the waist for a curvier silhouette. ($196 at Bonadrag)
American Rag
Quiksilver’s ‘Boyish Grin’ bikini with colorful zig zag pattern and black trim has a triangle top and low rise bottom with a three strand detail on each side. ($88 atnAmerican Rag)
For sophisticated sun-worshippers not interested in crazy colors and shocking prints, we suggest this über-shirred bikini by Saha. It offers enough coverage and support for those also shunning skimpier styles with a wide halter strap and side panels, plus plenty of ruching. (Top, $68; bottom, $68 at Anthropologie)
You can still make a statement in a one piece. Pull on Pez D’Or’s ‘Color-Pop’ maillot one-piece suit, with figure flattering ruching and hundreds of color-drenched stripes. ($158 at Anthropologie)
New York designer Mara Hoffman brings her global boho vibe to this Aztec-print bikini, which has a ruffled, balconette, padded top with underwire, and optional halterneck straps. ($220 at Net-a-Porter)
I Don't Like Mondays
Cheap Monday’s well-priced, black and white ‘Oksana’ swimsuit gets playful with front bustier detail over each breast. Tattoos not included. ($55 at I Don’t Like Mondays)
Opening Ceremony
Known for its cacophony of prints, Suno dips into slanty tie dye for the summer with this gently frilled bandeau bikini. (Ruffle bandeau top , $115 and bikini bottom, $115 at Opening Ceremony).
Creatures of Comfort
Italian designer Laura Urbinati manages to make even an up-to-there belly hiding bottom seem sexy. The two-tone color blocked diagonal design plays pleasing tricks on the eye. ($235 at Creatures of Comfort)
The silhouette of J. Crew’s one-shoulder tank draws inspiration from a Greek goddess, but the ruching hides flaws in case you’re not a total goddess. Made from jersey Lomellina, it’s satiny, silky, and absolutely comfy. ($150 at J.Crew)
The green ‘Twiggs’ pattern on this Diane von Furstenberg ‘Deianira’ bikini is a re-issued print from the designer’s ‘70s collections. The sexy string bikini style is also reminiscent of the era. (Top, $98; bottom, $90 at DVF)
Juicy Couture
For a floral that’s channels “groovy artist” more than “little girl,” Juicy Couture’s ‘Poppy’ print is a great find. The bandeau halter top has a touch of ruffle; the bottoms are a classic cut. (Top, $85; bottom, $76 at Juicy Couture)
Australian label Lover’s got a definite thing for lace this season. This pointelle lace knit bikini top with contrast lining won’t let you down, with its underwire top and wide band shoulder straps. And, the lace is a nice alternative to basic black. ($230 at La Garçonne)
Madewell’s well-priced ‘Wild Woodblock’ bikini is splattered with an inky Japanese-inspired print that has earthy and graphic appeal. (Top, $46; bottom, $44 at Madewell)
The Mink Pink ‘Sky Diver’ one piece print is inspired by moody cloud formations. The simple shape is modest and even more flattering thanks to the gentle ruching in front. And, the removable strap ensures it won’t slip down if you catch a wave. ($104.99 at Modcloth)
American Eagle Outfitters
American Eagle’s navy leaf print ruffle bandeau bikini with pale yellow tie is summery combo of nautical femme. (Top, $24.50; bottom, $24.50 at American Eagle Outfitters)
Creatures of Comfort
Even if you haven’t booked ferry tickets to Nantucket, you can still go native. APC’s cotton plaid Madras bikini with boned halter top and elastic gathered brief bottom is a cute and casual example of New England island style. ($90 at Creatures of Comfort)
Trina Turk turns paisley prep into pure glamour with the 'French Riviera' bikini. The punchy print triangle top features a gold medallion at center and wide band bottom for optimal comfort and fit, even for the bigger busted. Top, $91 and side tie bottom, $75 at Nordstrom)
With its excellent price point and zippy ‘Black Lightning’ print this simple string bikini bikini is likely to sell out fast. ($55 at Topshop)
Opening Ceremony
True to form, Jean Paul Gaultier puts a playful spin on an otherwise classic style. The triangle top and bikini bottom are both adorned with gentle ruffles; the bottom is just shy of a take on a skirted number. The stripe is part zebra, part nautical, broadcasting a designer chic sensibility. ($315 at Opening Ceremony)
Surfer Alexandra Cassaniti's sporty red neoprene one piece has a back pouch pocket with a great big zipper, and can be worn reverse. And, it’s locally made in California. ($198 atnalwaysnever)
Tory Burch
Tory Burch may be the princess of patterning but this white bandeau one piece is a supremely sophisticated example of swimwear. Pair it with a tan. ($210 at Tory Burch)
It’s not summer without a full-on nautical design. We like Marc by Marc Jacobs take. The clean, wide stripes and bow and button details add whimsy to this fuller-cut suit that will hold in curvier ladies in all the right places. Halter top, $94 and hipster bikini bottom, $85 at Shopbop)
Rag & Bone’s ‘Elizabeth’ one piece is a patchwork-print created from images lifted from the designer’s island vacation snapshots. If you love it, try the Tribeca dress for off-beach occasions too. ($370 at Ssense)
Phillip Lim applies his edgy but elegant aesthetic to swimwear with this subtly striped black and white bandeau top and basic brief bottom bikini. The top has boning at the sides and a drawstring halter tie; the bottom also has knotted drawstrings on either side, and a self-tie fastening at back. ($250 at Ssense)
