These bathing suits are classic but definitely not basic.
It seems swimwear has gotten more extravagant and trendier as the years go on. Of course, making a fashion statement on the beach is always welcome, but wasting time trying to figure out how to get into some swimsuits is not. Classic styles and simple prints can go a long way and are timeless. There is nothing more satisfying than finding a bathing suit that looks good and will remain on rotation year after year. In fact, repeating looks has never been more on trend and accepted than it is today.
SI Swimsuit star Camille Kostek incorporates much of this approach of avoiding patterns and keeping bathing suit styles sleek in her own collection with Swimsuits For All. After all, a solid-colored one piece is as functional as it is sexy. A high-cut suit or a bandeau bikini top with a high-waisted bottom gives off an effortless vibe to beachwear. Keep scrolling for a wide range of styles that are practical but never boring.
