As you prepare for swim season, taking stock of trends is key for a stylish look. For those who tend bold, a vivacious print is on the docket. You may be surprised by one retro type that's back in the spotlight: tie-dye.

"To me, it feels less crunchy hippie and more 1992 Lithuanian All-Star basketball, which obviously coincides with the current '90s obsession," says stylist Rachael Wang, whose editorial work includes styling athleisure fashion maven Kendall Jenner.

"Tie-dye was all over the Spring ‘18 runways from luxury heavy hitters like Burberry, Chanel, and Loewe to cult streetwear brand Gosha Rubchinskiy," she continues. "Even purveyors of minimalism Lemaire departed from their usual solid neutrals to test out watercolors."

Variegated suits—from marbled pastels to saturated swirls—are fresh for spring and summer and rendered chic in one-piece silhouettes and bikinis alike. Dip your toe in to the trend with these styles below.
