Kim Kardashian wearing bikini

Toss boring bikinis aside — there are new, unique swimwear silhouettes that should be on your radar. More coverage and sportier cuts guarantee you won’t be sidelined this season.

Poolside or in the sand, these trendy spring swim styles have warm-weather glamour and performance in mind. Suit up like an It-Girl and mix-and-match your separates to craft buzz-worthy beach looks with just a few key pieces.

Swim Tanks

A riff on the oh-so-popular crop top, these tank swim tops channel the athletic spirit, and in thicker and tighter fabrics, do a pretty good job of keeping you supported.

Eliminate the chance for loose ties and falling tops with a longer, form fitting number that accentuates the smallest part of the waist. These styles are easy to find at mass retailers like Target and Walmart.

High-Waisted Bottoms

Forget teeny tiny bikini bottoms likely to swish off with a wave in the sea. High-waisted silhouettes keep you covered and looking like a retro beach bunny. And, bonus, these safe cuts are surprisingly flattering fit for many shapes and sizes. It may just be the best swimsuit for your body type.

You can pair a high-waisted bottom with the aforementioned tank style as well as classic tops and bandeaus.

Rashguards

No longer reserved for surfers, the rashguard top is one on-trend solution to protecting your skin from the sun — and other elements — during your time by the water. Covering the torso and arms, these sporty shirt silhouettes help tackle water adventures in standout style. They also draw the eye to your upper body, which can be useful if you don’t like to flaunt your legs.

You can find a fab selection of rashguards at SwimOutlet.com. Surf shops have them too, but the sizes tend to be teeny tiny.
