1 - Haight – Bruna Swimsuit Black & White Zebra Print

The up-and-coming designer Haight released this swimsuit in its summer lineup, featuring a straight neckline in the front with a U-neckline in the back. But notice how the Zebra stripes are larger than usual, which really brings out the nuances of the cut and design. Try this one if you want to go full throttle with the animal print look.

2 - Gooseberry – Good Vibes – Triangle Bikini and Side-Tie Bottom

By now, we've all noticed that side ties are getting longer each season, and this two-piece by Gooseberry is a great example. But see that there's only a single tie on one side! It's a unique touch. The side tie is lengthy and strappy while still maintaining an elegant look. You get the cheeky bottom cut, too, that's adjustable depending on how comfortable you want to be. Pair it with the matching top to round out the fit.

3 - The Attico – Zebra-Printed Bikini

This zebra-printed bikini by The Attico would go great for those with an adventurous personality that’s not afraid to stand out. Notice the unique crossed neckline that rises to a strappy, thin halter. It’s a cute cut you don’t usually find, and the double side ties on the bottom match it perfectly.

4 - Melissa Simone – Zara One-Piece in Cheetah

A one-piece animal print swimsuit can be just as fierce as a two-piece with the right cut-outs, and the Zara One-Piece in Cheetah is a perfect example of what’s trending this summer. Check out the one-shoulder, zig-zag cut-out. It’s definitely a head turner because you can’t tell whether or not it’s a one-piece at a glance until you see the whole fit.

5 - Zimmermann – Moonshine Waterfall Frill One-Piece

The Moonshine Waterfall Frill One-piece comes with a deep V-neck that plunges into a knotted cut-out, but the star of the show is the puffy ruffles that climb up the shoulder. It looks pretty far out in snake print, and that’s what we love about it! It’s stunning.

6 - Miaou – Kauai Bikini Cow

Want to go vintage this summer? If so, this Kauai Bikini by Miaou is perfect for the look. The classic string triangle bikini top can be tied in a variety of ways to create a sleek and sexy look. The Kauai Bikini Bottom completes the set with a flirty touch. The Cow print adds a vintage flavor for for an iconic summer moment.

7 - Rat & Boa – Ribeiro Bikini

Not really feeling cheetah, leopard, or zebra print? Well, how about a groovy, psychedelic butterfly print from Rat & Boa instead? This one gives you the best of both worlds if you tend to lean more towards the floral side. The top works as a bandeau (totally in style right now, by the way), or it works as a front-tie top.

8 - JMP The Label – Vegas Top and Rio Bottom Tortuga

The Rio Bottom in Tortuga print, high-cut and cheeky, has become a JMP the Label best seller in no time. Why? It sticks with the Vegas bandeau-top trend but adds a couple of front cut-outs. The side ruching is also a cute, subtle touch the designer added.

9 - Reina Olga – Showpony Swimsuit Leopardo

The Showpony Swimsuit by designer Reina Olga is a show stopper. You get the fierce leopard print with a crisscrossing halter neckline. Once again, we come across a designer swimsuit that’s technically a one-piece but genuinely resembles a cute two-piece. The top actually connects to the bottom in the small of the back.

10 - Bikini Lovers – Gina

If you’re addicted to strappy two-piece bikinis, you’re about to get your fix with Bikin Lovers’ Gina swimsuit. You get the triangle top with a circular brass ring in the center, which matches the two rings on the bottom. The rings are actually where you knot the side ties, making them easier to wear. Color-wise it's a mix of jungle animal print with floral-like pallets, a real head-turner on any beach.

11 - Beach Riot – Camilla Top and Vanessa Bottom Desert Snake

If you're tired of jungle prints and clever butterfly designs, why not go for something with a sultry, mysterious edge instead? This classically cut two-piece swimsuit by Beach Riot comes in an eye-catching desert snake pattern. Design-wise, it doesn't try to do too much and keeps things modest, except for the fierce snakeskin-like print, that is!

12 - Norma Kamali – Marissa Pantera One-Piece

This one piece by famed designer Norma Kamali features a deeply scooped neckline and side cuts that rise high up the hips, even more so than usual. But this swimsuit offers more cover in the back instead of accentuating cheekiness. The result is a chic, one-of-a-kind fit, so pair with an airy, flowing cover to complement the look.

13 - Cult Gaia – Estella Bikini Dusty Dye

Sometimes, it pays to stick with what you know, and the same is true when picking out a two-piece designer swimsuit. This one is a classic yet still absolutely gorgeous swimsuit bottom with the usual type of side ties, high on the hips with a cheek-flattering cut. Pair it with the matching top, which is just as soft-spoken and down-to-earth.

14 - Inamorata Woman – Beacon’s Butterfly

Who says you can't mix tropical patterns with animal prints? This sassy cut-out one-piece by Inamorata Woman pulls it off beautifully with a crisscrossing, wrap-around halter top, including the trendy high-waist cut and cheeky bottoms that we’re seeing in almost every swimsuit this summer.

15 - Bamba Swim - Vino Top and Vixen Bottom Tiger

Does Bamba swim ever release anything bad? If so, we must have missed it because this exclusive original print features one of the most original patterns we've seen in a long time! The top piece has a V-wire in the center, supporting the bust while still making a fashion statement. Bamba Swim also offers matching bottoms to complete the fit, but the cute top is the star of the show.
