Something-for-Everyone Swimsuit Guide

Whatever your summer plans may look like at the moment—sprawling out by the pool, pedaling your beach cruiser to the nearest body of water, sipping citrusy Campari spritzes on your balcony/fire escape/rooftop, book in hand—a good swimsuit (or two) is a must. Below, twenty-five of our favorites, from modern maillots to skimpy, strap-happy bikinis.


Did the cool-weather seasons technically claim jewel tones first? Sure. But does this crop of richly hued one-pieces—designed with curve-accentuating cuts and artful, avant-garde straps—prove that the trend holds water year-round? Absolutely.
