I never thought I'd say this, but I've been craving 80-degree weather. I know that might sound torturous to some, but temperatures that high usually mean I should be lying on a beach soaking up the sun. Most of the time, this is merely a daydream. But this time, I'm making it a reality. I'm finally going on a tropical vacation to Miami for the weekend. Words truly can't describe how badly I've wanted to sit beneath a cluster of palm trees in a cute swimsuit. The only way to accurately express how happy I am to catch this flight is to show you everything I've been eyeing ahead of my trip.

I see vacation as an opportunity to experiment with my style and test new trends. I tend to wear a lot more color and try out fabrics and patterns that you wouldn't typically find in my closet. It's officially swimsuit season, and we all need a little bit of inspo, so I've been perusing the Calzedonia site for all things vacation-related. And I'm not exaggerating when I say that the brand has tapped into just about every swimsuit trend. Crotchet, color-blocking, colorful prints, and embellished styles are all over my browser and social media feeds, and thanks to Calzedonia, they're also in my suitcase. Since I'll be spending four full days rotating between the beach and the pool, I've decided that there's no limit to how many swimsuits I'll be packing. But I know that I won't be leaving NYC without these five swimwear trends. If you're ready to start preparing your summer wardrobe, take a look at the swimsuit 'fits below.

Crotchet is coming back in a variety of colorways and styles. Your favorite celebs have been spotted wearing this fabric in the form of bags, tops, and sweaters, but the bikini trend is just heating up. The mix of cool tones here adds a nice flare and even taps into the rise of pastels. This look is perfect for a beach day followed by dinner on the water.

Terry cloth surged in 2021 and isn't losing any momentum this year. This is a head-to-toe terry cloth look that focuses on prints and pops of color. The beach bag brings out some of the hues in the string bikini and ties everything together. I would wear this to a summer pool party for a fun, relaxed vibe.

One-piece swimsuits often feel like a second choice, but I'm here to debunk the myth and show you how chic they can be. This silhouette is simple, but the teal color adds some flare. Paired with a brightly colored sarong and a sun hat, this is the ultimate resortwear look. It gets bonus points because it can easily be worn as a bodysuit, too.

Printed Bikini for Summer

I like to think of this look as the most transitional of them all. If you're the type of person who goes to the beach or pool without any intention of getting into the water, this one is for you. The printed bikini top doubles as a crop top that looks chic and effortless when paired with a maxi skirt and a pair of slip-on sandals.

There's something so classic about an all-black look on vacation, and this is exactly how you keep it neutral with a little bit of glam. The rhinestone details add so much to an otherwise simple outfit. The black linen cover-up both dresses down the look and gives it that put-together element.
