Summer is right around the corner, so swimsuits are certainly at the top of the list when it comes to wardrobe updates. And while there are plenty of swimwear trends on deck to explore, animal print, neon, one-shoulder and metallic among them, one of the most popular looks of the season feels particularly relevant: tie dye swimsuits. With many exploring DIY and craft making from home, it makes sense that the resurgence of the '70s-inspired print would go beyond t-shirts and socks and extend to swimwear.

But if you're not game for dip-dying your own bright white bikini yourself, not to worry, designers and fast fashion brands have you covered. From black and white prints to shibori-style patterns, rainbow swirls to colorful ombre, there's no shortage of tie dye swimsuit options on the market this year. The best part is the prints are eye-catching enough that your bikini can totally double as a top, take it from Kylie Jenner. Team your tie-dye swimsuit with denim shorts, breezy white linen pants, or a mini skirt; the options are truly endless.

Ahead, find the best tie-dye swimsuits this season. Whether you prefer bikinis or maillots, you're bound to find a look that feels perfectly retro and somehow totally right now.
