Waterside Chic: The Best Swimwear & Beachwear for 2019

You’ll surely make a statement with a pick from this edit, whether you’re planning to tan poolside or are invited to a soirée by the beach.

Summer hasn’t officially begun unless you have some new swimwear in your drawer. The delicate chore of choosing swimsuits can be tricky, however if there’s one golden rule to remember it’s to pick something that flatters your body type and moves attention away from problem areas. If you want to make some waves in a one-piece, whether it’s with a vibrant tropical print, fun tassels or in a chic one-shoulder style, there’s something for you if you are athletically built, pear shaped or have an hourglass figure. Plus, there’s a retro-inspired gingham bikini, as well as a few bikini tops and bottoms to mix and match.

If you’re looking for a fashionable way to protect your face from the sun, an eye-catching beach bag or practical yet ultra cool footwear, it’s all here as well. In addition to the beach accessories you’re sure to fall in love with, there’s some outerwear that’s perfect for that poolside lunch, including flowy shorts and a gorgeous caftan. And we’ve even got you covered when it’s that magical time for some waterside sundowners.
