The summer season calls for one thing: swimsuit shopping! But before you swipe your credit cards to suit up for an upcoming beach trip with your BFFs, sit down and check out what we learned from celebrity stylist Perry Tabora about the hottest trends in swimwear. Besides, if celebs like Liza Soberano and Sofia Andres listen to this fashion genius, you can be sure that we’re all ears, too!
Belted Midsection Bikinis
“A belted midsection bikini is a swim style we’ll be seeing a lot of this year,” Perry shared. Aside from being on-trend, it’s a great way to look dressy on the beach, too! Perfect for your beach shots to up your IG game.

Smocked Bikini Tops and Bottoms
According to Perry, smocked bikini tops and bottoms are it! “Smocked sundresses and tops are quintessential summer staples and [they have] made [their] way into the swim category.” That's so '90s!

This season, polka dots are the new stripes, Perry predicted. “It’s a timeless design that never goes out of style.” Plus, it’s a great print if you’re gunning for that classic pin-up look.

Scrap the off-shoulder look. Not only is a one-shoulder cut elegant, Perry said that if there’s anything worth an awkward tan line after a beach trip, a one-shoulder suit is it.

“Bright rainbow hues are making a splash in swimwear this year.” One thing’s for sure if you want to stand out in a sea of people: A rainbow printed suit is the way to go.
