With summer upon us, we've put together the best looks, caught you up on the latest trends, found out what is inspiring designers, and put it all together into your Summer 2015 summer shopping picks.

Is there such a thing as the perfect bathing suit? Maybe. But in the meantime, we've kept in mind support, adjustability, padding, and coverage for both the ladies and gentlemen.

Go from sultry to playful.


Make a sultry statement with a fierce one-piece or an itsy-bitsy-teenie-weenie crochet bikini from Diane’s Beachwear. Opt for a more playful look with Trina Turk’s dynamic prints and colorful fabrics.

Polka dots are in.


Celebrate Palm Springs’ heyday in a one- or two-piece swimsuit and pour on the old-fashioned charm. Channel your inner pinup and choose from among feminine polka-dot bikinis with modest skirt overlays or sassy floral maillots.

Dress cool, feel elegant.


Lounge, lunch, or lie poolside in gorgeous loose and breezy tunics, caftans, and shirts whose patterns, silks, and soft cottons are quintessential desert chic. These versatile cover-ups also make for an elegant look at patio parties and evening soirées.

Be bright, be colorful.


Trunks in bright, graphic, and nautical colors — white, navy, sky blue, and red — sail onto the pool deck. Plain fronts give way to side-pocket seams, and some pieces feature a waterproof, handy back-pocket zipper to store notions.
