This style of swimsuit has been all over the summer runways this season and all of our favorite celebrities have been rocking this trend. You and your little one can easily wear the scallop look, too. While Mommy rocks the double scalloped one piece from Topshop, baby can rock the scalloped tankini from Amazon. Quickly throw on a pair of matching white sun hats and you two will be ready to hit the beach… PRONTO!

Ruffles
Next up, is another hot swimwear option that is widely known and loved. That option is the Ruffled swimsuit.

You can never go wrong with ruffles and if you are on the more modest side when it comes to your chest, this ruffled bikini adds just the right amount of coverage. Its brightly colored sarong from River Island can give you extra coverage in the back while you run after your daughter in her ruffled one shoulder bikini from Children’s Place. Do we even have to mention how cute these flower glasses from Old Navy are? We didn’t think so.

Tribal Prints

The tribe has officially hit the beach!
Tribal print is not only a trend that has been around for a few seasons now, but it’s incredibly flattering because it draws the eye to the pattern and helps hide some of the flaws that swimsuits tend to enhance. Try this one piece from Oasap on yourself and this ruffled tribal one piece on baby to maximize this option. And remember, black is still the new black.

Midkini
Our fourth style of swimsuit is the Midkini.
