Summer is so close we can almost taste it, which means it’s time to dust off your swimsuits and get ready for the warmer weather that lies ahead. Now, before you get too excited and end up spending all your money on the first cute swimsuit you see, let me share with you one of the only swimsuit trends I think you need to know this season: retro florals. I touched on it briefly here, but after some further research, I am officially convinced that if you’re going to be seen in one swimsuit trend this summer, make it retro florals—period.
Retro florals entail any floral print that looks like it came straight out of the ’60s, ’70s, or ’80s. The nostalgia these funky prints bring is what makes this swim trend feel fresh and different compared to your average floral-printed suit. To further sell you on this trend (in case my championing of it up above wasn’t enough), I have shopped out my favorite takes on the retro floral swim trend below, featuring a smattering of some of my favorite swim brands. From Frankies Bikinis to Reina Olga, I can assure you there’s no shortage of stunning suits below, so get your wallet ready because you’re about to do some serious summer shopping.
