20 Graphic Swimsuits You Need This Summer

Even for the most conservative dressers out there, it’s time to embrace the graphic swimwear trend. After all, if not on the beach, then where? This summer, we’re done playing it safe; instead, we’re diving headfirst into the boldest of waterproof wears. Whether you’re a lover of not-so-basic black (and white!) or you’re ready to fully immerse yourself in the most head-turning colors and patterns, the graphic swimsuit is about to become a must-have in your summertime wardrobe, no looking back.

With a more graphic swimsuit, consider keeping your silhouette a little more classic. Forgo the fussy ruffles in favor of tank-style maillots; swap out textured materials for clean lines and stark blocking. That’s not to say that you have to keep it simple, though. In fact, quite the contrary. While a bold striped bikini is a killer graphic option, so too is a solid-colored suit with a cutout or pattern that packs a strong punch through its shape.

In particular, we gravitate toward the contrasting stripes of Solid & Striped in classic swimsuit styles we love, but the two-tone cutout styles of Araks are amazing for those looking for a more daring silhouette. J.Crew has great polka dots for a flirtier take on the graphic swimsuit trend while Perfect Moment has sportier appeal. Whatever your personal style, there’s a bold graphic swimsuit for you.
