Old Navy Twisted Bandeau Bikini

The deep jewel tone adds an air of sophistication to this multi-tasking style. The twisted bandeau top adds shape to smaller busts (and has removable padding for those who are naturally endowed), while the ruched fold-over bottoms keep everything tucked in. Available in three colors.

To buy: Top, $20; oldnavy.com and bottoms, $17; oldnavy.com.

Aerie Cutout One-Piece Swimsuit

Don’t let the horizontal stripes deter you—the middle placement of a contrasting band of the darkest color (in this case, a cheery red) creates the illusion of an hourglass figure. Flattering for anyone, the effect is particularly well-suited to shapes without a defined waist, like straighter frames or those with a tummy.

To buy: $15, ae.com.

Target Halter Tankini Swimsuit

If you love the convenience and coverage of a tankini but feel like there aren’t many chic options out there, try this trick: Look for one with a matching print on the top and bottom—it creates a look similar to one pieces (which are very on-trend this summer), but offers mix-and-match sizing for a custom fit.

To buy: Top, $20; target.com and bottoms, $18; target.com.

Rip Curl “Sparrow” Stripe One-Piece Swimsuit

It might be hard to tear your eyes away from all the great details on the front of this suit, like the scooped neck, sweet stripes, and subtle cut-outs, but you’ll definitely want to check out the back view, which features an eye-catching crisscross of straps—the perfect way to show a little skin while wearing an otherwise modest style.

To buy: $79.50; nordstrom.com.
