Suit yourself in these on-trend styles for early 2017.
It’s winter getaway time—and it coincides with the kickoff of a new swimsuit season. Trending features include graphic cutouts, simple patterns, athletic details, and even playful sequins. Whether you prefer to get sporty or glam on the sands, take a more subdued attitude to color, eschewing old-school brights “to look more modern," advises New York City-based stylist Garth Condit. Here’s a preview of beach-bound styles with decidedly flattering exposure.
Fella Louis Triangle Bikini Top, $120, and Gregy Briefs, $100
