From full-coverage maillots to string bikinis to sporty racerbacks, swimwear has gone through hundreds, if not thousands, of iterations over the last 100-plus years. As for the year 2020, however, there is one stand-out style that reigns supreme above all the rest, and luckily, it’s pretty classic: leopard print. In fact, according to a report from Pinterest, searches for “leopard print swimwear” have gone up more than 445 percent over the last year, and we expect that number will only continue to grow.
It’s not hard to see why these wild spots are so popular. The shades of beige, brown and tan are flattering on every skin tone. It’s a fun print that doesn’t feel too juvenile, nor does it fit squarely into any one style category. There are a multitude of different spotted variations, it works for literally any swimsuit style and won’t cause any unflattering distortions, like accidentally making your hips look wider (thank you kindly, horizontal stripes).
So, without further ado, here is some of the best leopard print swimwear on the internet, for any budget, body type and style.
