You bet we're fully prepared for swim season each year, a time when we're finally enjoying the warmer weather, sipping on our morning coffee, and scrolling through Instagram when it hits us - every celebrity is taking selfies poolside someplace warmer or chicer. Not that we mind seeing other people test out the merchandise from some of our favorite swim labels before we get our hands on the new-season product. It can be nice to see how some of these fresh trends - from the tankini to the shirred, smocked triangle two-piece - look in real life. Or, we mean, against crystal-clear blue waters somewhere deep in the Caribbean.
The good news is, most of the must-have styles we've spotted so far and curated here are relatively affordable, picked up from brands such as Frankies Bikinis, Blackbough Swim, Mikoh, Triangl, and I.Am.Gia. Scroll to see the bikinigrams that are still worth shopping before summer's end, and make a purchase if you find a gap in your swim collection that simply must be filled.
