Ditch that old two-piece for something fresh.
Brand: Sea Salt & Vinegar
BK says: Long-sleeve swimsuits are making waves this summer, and we can totally see why. Not only do they offer you extra sun protection, but they’re also super versatile—you can easily wear it as a bodysuit with your favorite jeans and culottes as a casual weekend outfit or glam it up by pairing it with a pleated skirt and strappy heels. Sea Salt & Vinegar really nailed this trend with its chic tropical prints, which comes in a variety of styles from boat necks to one-shoulders.

BK says: We’re not surprised that the retro swimsuit trend continually makes comebacks. With its modest but tasteful silhouettes, from maillots one-piece swimsuits and cute peek-a-boo cutouts to high-waist bottoms and classy peplums, there is something about putting on a retro swimsuit that makes us feel extra special. If you too have a soft spot for this style of swimwear, then Aprilpoolday’s ‘80s-inspired white trim one-piece and collared halter-top should tickle your fancy.

Brand: The Summer Project Bangkok
BK says: The Summer Project Bangkok’s offering of this popular trend is giving us major casual-elegant resort wear vibes, which you can easily rock the piece as a bodysuit or on its own with cat-eye sunglasses to match. Need we say more? Stripes never die, y’all.

Longline tops and high-waisted bottoms
Brand: Bikie Swimwear
BK says: A longline top paired with a high-waisted bottom is perfect for those who want to show some skin, but not too much skin. Choose the right fitting and the top will help make your waist look slimmer, while the high-waisted bikini bottom will accentuate your curves and, most importantly, provide full-coverage. We’re all for Bikie Swimwear’s offerings, which come in vibrant colors and stylish prints.
Price: B1,150 for their Pandle Pop and Magic Leaves collections
Brand: Maillot Co. Swimwear
BK says: This year is all about the color “living coral,” so don’t be surprised if you’re seeing this color popping up everywhere from top designer labels, high-street brands and swimwear boutiques. It’s a great color to add a bit of sass to your swimsuit collection, but if you don’t feel bold enough or unsure on how to rock the trend, opt for a minimal style like this one from Maillot Co. Swimwear.—you can’t go wrong with a one-piece swimsuit.
