Swimwear season is here! And we know you’ve got one-piece suits and bikinis on the brain. If you’re getting married in the spring or summer, you might be jetting off to a warm-weather destination for your honeymoon, in which case, you’ll definitely be in need of a few killer swimsuits for sipping cocktails poolside, relaxing on the beach, or for water-based activities like kayaking, parasailing, or hey, maybe yachting! You’re a newlywed after all, treat yourself!
Since a robust swimwear wardrobe is the ideal, affordable versions are the way to go—you can maximize your options without racking up a serious credit card balance (you’ve got plenty of other expenses to worry about leading up to your wedding).
To start, we strongly urge a bridal white swimsuit to keep the wedding theme going on your honeymoon—you're a newlywed and should show it! Then, we suggest dipping your toe in the pool of trends—so many fresh and fun looks abound this season.
For those drawn to splashy colors and bold prints, tie-dye, unique color-blocking, and rainbow stripes are on deck. Vivid hues and pastel shades are likewise major if you prefer solid tones—a single color suit with multicolored trim is a punchy midway point. Polka dots and gingham prints are classic prints that are big, too, often coming in retro silhouettes for a figure-flattering fit. Due to their timeless nature, you’ll get lots of wear out of beyond a single season.
A feminine and romantic way to do color and print on your honeymoon is with a floral print swimsuit with ruffled accents or a solid color with scalloped edging. Twist detailing is another big trend, seen on straps and ties or just as a distinctive accent. This knotted detail adds a fleck of interest to simple suits in a spectrum of shades.
If you’re the minimalist type, ultra-high cuts á la the 80s and 90s are the It silhouette. While it can feel unnerving to rock so much leg (and hip!)—and feels so very “Let's Get Physical”—the look is actually a great hack for elongating your gams whether you go for a basic black one-piece or fire engine red bikini.
Whatever trend tickles your fancy, we’ve put together an edit of 32 super-stylish and affordable swimsuits, ahead. Each one rings in under $100, including two-piece sets, so scoop up a few and start soaking up the sun.
