Memorial Day Weekend is now just days away, and that means one thing: Swim season is officially here.
This year’s resort collections have brought on a number of new swimwear trends, from velvety textures to polka dots, belts, and even smocking. Our current favorite? All of the ruffled accents taking over summer 2018's newest silhouettes.
Why do we love them so much? Well, not only are ruffly accents flouncy, but they're flattering for all. They also add an extra flair that makes your swimsuits feel less utilitarian. Considering how much we’ll be beach-, pool-, and BBQ-hopping this weekend, we definitely need a suit that can take us from the pool to wherever else we want to go.
We rounded up our 13 favorites of the season, below. Pair ‘em with your favorite cutoffs or underneath a sheer blouse and voilà—you have a look that will transition you from the beach to backyard barbecue.
