Memorial Day is almost here and you've only just realized there isn’t a swimsuit to be found in your closet. To be fair, you have a bunch from seasons past, but the stretched-out spandex, faded blacks, and yellowed brights just don’t have that same je ne sais quoi that they used to. It’s time to update, and there's no better place to start than with 2020 swimsuit trends. And you deserve a little warm-weather pick-me-up. Right? Right.

As swimwear goes, though, don’t shop for just any old suit. Raise that bar and give yourself the gift of something really special to yank you out of that bleak Winter rut. As it happens, there are seven huge trends that are about to hit the beach and you’re going to want to dip your toe into at least one of them.

This Summer, there is truly something for everyone. Swimsuits run the gamut from head-turning safari prints to disco-inspired metallics, sporty surfer silhouettes to ultra-feminine ruffles. Then there are a few styles that stand the test of time, from season to season, but are just as chic, like mix-and-match bikinis, belted maillots, and more.

Ahead, find the top trends you’re about to see everywhere this summer and remember: your swimsuit totally doubles as a top, too.

If you’re looking for an extra detail to set your favorite swimsuit apart, consider extra straps and ties. If you can find a style with straps in contrasting colors, even better.

Ruching is one of the most enduring trends of the bunch. Whether you want a simple childhood throwback smocking, or a full top-to-bottom ruching, it’s a great way to add some extra texture to your preferred swimsuit style.

If you’re looking for a little extra coverage or a sportier look, reach for a surfer-style suit this Summer. It will look great while you lie on the beach, but you can rest assured it performs when you’re out on a surfboard later.
