It’s March and we’re already dreaming about summer Fridays and weekends at the beach. It also helps that the swimsuits we’ve been eyeing this season are much more forgiving than the string bikinis of the past. From tasteful cutouts to minimalist maillots, 2016 is all about leaving a little something to the imagination.

Balconette bra cups

No sagging or slipping here. A structured top offers much more support than those flimsy, stringy tie-ons that haven’t fit since puberty. Plus, it completes the retro look with those high-waisted bottoms you’ve wanted since last summer.

Strapless One-Pieces

Keeping it retro (but not to be confused with your grandmother's water-aerobics tank), one-pieces are getting fresh makeovers these days. And one of the biggest trends in maillots is to go strapless...and preferably add a little belt.

Get the look: LOFT ($90); La Blanca ($123); Tommy Bahama ($154)

cutouts list

Tasteful cutouts

The other way one-pieces are getting a reinvention: by incorporating cutouts. A few well-placed keyholes make your swimwear sexy without being too skimpy.

High-neck tops

The ?70s resurgence has even made its way to swimwear. And the halter style is an especially opportune trend for ladies who are kinda over the whole cleavage thing.

Get the look: Old Navy ($25); L*Space ($86); MIKOH ($112)

One-shoulder styles

Like the halter, there is something so flattering about flashing the tops of your shoulders in feminine ways. Style yours with a breezy midi skirt when you come out of the water.

Get the look: Target ($40); Miraclesuit ($160); Marysia Swim ($143)

Sporty silhouettes

Thanks to the ongoing athleisure trend, our lives have just gotten so much more comfortable. Rest assured, you won?t have a wardrobe malfunction while wearing a suit that?s designed for movement.
