It’s really tempting to reach for a red, white, and blue bathing suit right about now—or something in a patriotic stars-and-stripes pattern. But if you’re looking for a suit that’s festive, yet unexpected—go for gingham. A leading trend for the season, the print is timeless and comes with vintage appeal, rendered in both retro silhouettes and modern shapes alike.

“Gingham prints make people nostalgic for family picnics and the Fourth of July,” says Roopal Patel, Saks Fifth Avenue’s SVP fashion director. “We’ve seen a return of checks and plaids on the runway and these fabrications translated into swimwear are fresh and fun for summer.”

Modern iterations come bold, feminine, and minimal from splashy two-tone sets to pastel one-pieces and flutter-sleeve bikinis to suit myriad tastes. Below are a dozen iterations we’d gladly rock this holiday weekend.

If you’re not in to print, opt for a monochromatic one-piece in a holiday hue (read: red, white, or blue). Or, buck tradition and go for a bold statement in a bright yellow bathing suit
