However you feel about shopping for a bathing suit, it’s about time to face it. It doesn’t have to be a chore though, especially since so many swim lines are embracing bold patterns, colorful prints, and unique takes on graphics. For the classicist, there are stripes mixed with solids. For girly gals, there are florals and delicate ikats. But there’s everything in-between, too. We’ve picked a few of our favorite one-piece bathing suits — all the better to show off that bold pattern right? — that’ll turn heads when you turn up at the pool or the beach.
