Make A Splash: Summer's 6 Sexiest Swimsuit Styles


Is it hot in here, or is it just us? Whether you're looking to merely start a spark this summer, or you're ready turn the heat on full blast, we've rounded up this season's most sizzle-worthy swimwear styles for your (and his) beach-going pleasure.

Free-Spirited Fringe
Great for those looking for a little enhancement (while still maintaining a good amount of coverage) up top, show off your playful side with festival-friendly fringe. This AE Fringe Bikini Top, now $19.99, offers a bold take on a bathing suit classic.

Pretty Pastels
If you're not ready to reveal your sexy side just yet, you can at least send a sweet signal with this season's wide selection of ice cream-colored creations. This Topshop Mint Scallop Bikini, $60, is scalloped for a more feminine touch.


Revealing Wraps
Prove you still have a few tricks up your sleeve (or at least behind your back) with this ASOS Cross Front Wrap Halter Swimsuit, $52.68. The toga-inspired style looks like a two-piece from the front, but is actually connected in back.


Day-Glo Brights
Looking to really heat things up this summer? Try turning up the electric with an eye-catching neon. This FULL TILT Triangle Bikini Top and Bottom, now $14.99 each, look like they should come equipped with a battery.

Peek-a-boo Straps
If you're looking to create a little mystery, call on strappy cutouts. The seemingly slippery halter top paired with this Forever 21 Cutout Bikini Bottom, $12.80, adds an extra level of danger.

Long Lines
Serving as evidence that less doesn't always mean more when it comes to sexy swimwear, more and more brands are taking their bikini top hems down a notch or two. This Victoria's Secret Very Sexy Long Line Bandeau Top, $64.50-$68.50, also boasts a beautiful tropical print.
