You know how you’re sure you know what swimwear looks best on you? Well, live a little and add some ruffles to your wet wear. The trend comes in everything from bikinis to majorly statement one-pieces, and they’re as sharp-looking as a smart blouse.
Ruffles Are the Major Swimwear Trend That’s Crazy Flattering
Pair this with a pair of statement earrings and the coordinating beach skirt and you’re ready to turn heads at cocktail hour.
Lisa Marie Fernandez ($465)
Who says swimwear has to be teeny-weeny to be sexy? This spaghetti-strap number accentuates your bust line and minimizes the great down-there. Pair it with a sarong tied into a three-quarter skirt and slay with a mimosa at brunch.
Adriana Degreas ($370)
One-shoulder Tankini Top
The long body gives you more coverage than the usual teensy bikini top, and is très chic over high-waisted shorts. (Use your sarong as a shoulder wrap to add a little rich hippie vibe.)
This festive little number pairs well with a floaty cotton skirt. And the obligatory wide-brim straw hat, natch.
Lauren Ralph Lauren ($112)
This style is just waiting for a mariachi band to walk by and offer her a margarita. We’re seeing it with a breezy kimono and white jeans.
Trina Turk ($128)
If the Winged Victory at Samothrace were a swimsuit, it would be this dramatic number. Turn this statement swimsuit into eye-catching event wear by slipping into some silky pajama bottoms and flat sandals.
