Wild Prints

Leopard print is out. This season’s swimsuits are all about geometric shapes, bright florals, and tribal-inspired prints. Small prints or prints in only two colors are classic and understated while bright, multi-colored prints attract attention. Dress up either style with ruffles, cut-outs, lace, or other embellishments.

Tasselled Swimsuits

Part your grandmother’s doily and part cowboy-themed getup, tasseled swimsuits add an ornamental theme to an otherwise basic swimsuit in 2017. Full-coverage options can include tassels on the back or hips to add style. If you prefer sexier swimsuits, choose a bikini with tassels on the top to draw eyes up. Tasseled suits are casual enough for a daytime pool party but flirty enough to wear to an evening on the beach.
