Fashion stylist Rachael Wang recently weighed in about all of the cool pieces she can’t wait to wear this summer and the sustainable brands she always wears—and I highly recommend giving them a read if you haven’t already. Now, the NYC-based stylist is returning to discuss all things swimwear as we head into summer. Curious to get her take on the coolest styles to know about for the months ahead, I asked Wang to share the best swimsuit trends to invest in now that get a stylist’s stamp of approval.
Her picks range from cool textures like ribbing that add some extra dimension to any silhouette to pretty patchwork bikinis to pieces that are designed with a wide range of body types and gender expressions in mind. One thing is for certain—all of Wang’s selects have me ready to slip into a swimsuit this season. Ahead, see the 5 best swimsuit trends from a stylist that she predicts will define summer style.
