As the summer heats up, and the blue sky shines, one question seems to be on all of our minds: What bathing suit will I purchase this season? Since the advent of Pinterest, Tumblr and Instagram, it’s no secret that swimsuits have expanded into all types of fabrics and cuts. With an array of options available for so many different shapes and sizes, investing in a new signature look may be hard to resist. From chic black one-pieces to colorful classics, this list focuses on the top 7 bathing suit trends of 2016:

Crisscross Details.

The peak-a-boo strappy style is an excellent choice for anyone who loves their photo op. It’s bold, yet sexy, so be prepared for some serious stares. While this may be the perfect way to get hearts on social media, beware! Criss Cross style swim suits' aren't exactly practical in the water.

The straps tend to not stay in place, so expect to be doing a lot of adjusting.

High-Rise Bottoms.

The High-Rise Bottoms are flourishing with retro flower prints and look great paired with solid round sunglasses.  

Cut-Out One Pieces.

Hello Bay-Watch babe! From cleavage-plunging neck lines to backless cut outs, rocking a one-piece is making a statement. It's hard to believe Paris Hilton launched her risqué Carls Jr. ad over a decade ago!

Crochet Details.

Forget a cheap looking pattern when there are beautiful embroidered Crochet tops and bottoms.  These detailed bathing suits reveal a sense of high quality fashion and flare.

High-Neck Halter.

Having a BBQ with friends?  The high-neck halter is the perfect way to say hello without saying HELLO. No need to let it all hang out. A little coverage from an already hot bikini is always a tasteful route.

Wrapped Styles.

String bikinis were so 90's.  Wrapped Styles provide great support, and come in a variety of cuts to flatter the frame.

Sportswear Inspired.

The beach bum swim wear is well known among Cali girls and surfer chicks.  They are affordable and great for #Swimming. Not to mention, the awesome selection of colors!
