Summer Prints You Need

     We’re letting you in on this season’s favorite prints that everyone can’t get enough of. Loud colors, retro vibes and bright maximalist patterns are all the rage this season, where this summer’s swimwear trends are heavily influenced by everything groovy and bright. 

We took a deep dive into what’s totally in and incorporated them into our latest collections so that lucky for you, you’re just a checkout away from getting on trend. 

Floral Funk

Spring has ended and made way for Hot Girl Summer, but looks like fashion has absolutely no plans of letting go of florals. But, these aren’t your soft, dainty prints - they’ve gotten a complete makeover. While we love delicate prints, this summer is all about going bold and groovy with retro florals that bring us back to the 70s and the 90s. We’re talking about wavy edges, pops of color, and large flowers. Our retro floral bets are the bold Floral Punch, Wavy Paisleys, hibiscus printed swimsuits of our Aloha Collection and, of course, the green daisies in the Buttercup Baby (a certified bestseller). 

Ombre Away

These suits are definitely here to add a splash of color to the season by brightening up the beach, pool, and social feeds everywhere. From make-up trends to fashion prints, the ombre trend is easily spotted everywhere. Looks like it’s the new tie-dye, but with a softer color gradient that’s easier on the eyes! The Solstice print is our hot take, and we recommend you get it in the spicy strappy bikinis in the Chloe Set for maximum heat. 

Great Abstraction

Another blast from the past comes to light in the form of the abstract side of things. Psychedelic patterns like wavy shapes, linear designs, blobs of color, and distorted prints remind us of the lava lamps that were in every cool kid’s bedroom decades back. Get on the psychedelic trend with our Drippy graphic printed bikinis that you need in your closet and feed.

One in a Melon

One of the best things about summer is all the tropical fruits that are in season. We love all these seasonal treats and the 60s fashion trend so we just had to make it a print! The Tutti Frutti collection is the juicy and sweet fruit printed bikini you need for your next tropical vacay - it’s sure to refresh your collection. 

We’re all about being free to slay outside this summer, so make sure you’re rocking the trendiest pieces yet!
