1 - Juan D Dios – Pacifico Top & White Blue Palms - Ivory
Want to stick with the tropical floral style? If so, this two-piece is a solid choice. You get the cute long ties to knot the top and the high-waist look without delving too far into the skimpy side. The blue and white color scheme, accented by orange flowers, works great for just about any occasion.

2 - Reina Olga – Exotica Swimsuit
Some women try to stay away from pink, but this swimsuit is to die for if you're a pink lover! You get the base pink color scheme, but you also get flashes of violet, green, yellow, and just a touch of black. Fit-wise, you're looking at a cut-out one-piece with an adorable criss-cross action across the bust. At a glance, you'd almost think it's a two-piece until you see the back.
3 - Beach Riot – Sariah Top & Phoebe Bottom – Fiery Plumeria
The Sariah Top & Phoebe Bottom by designer Beach Riot captures everything a floral two-piece should be: comfortable, stylish, and unique. You get pretty much the same color scheme as the Exotica Swimsuit by Reina Olga but with a black background, making the floral print stand out. But check out the ruching/knot in the top's centerline and the textured, ribbed straps. The bottoms have the same feature too, which brings everything together.
4 - SIR the label – Rei String Brief – Citrus Lilium Print
Up to this point, we haven't featured anything too dramatic and bold – but that's about to change! Have you ever seen a floral print with earth tones instead of the fluorescents we're all used to seeing? If not, you're in for a treat with this swimsuit. Think more along the lines of Tarzan’s Jane of the Jungle than Kate Bosworth in the film Blue Crush.

5 - Tropic of C – Equator Top in Mystic Parallelo
The only thing simple about this top is the classic triangle cut with thin straps. Other than that, this swimsuit is one of the wildest florals we’ve seen so far this season! The Mystic Parallelo pattern almost looks like an animal print, but the dark colors nicely bring it back into the floral sphere.

6 - Tanya Taylor – Kelly Wrap One Piece – Chalk Floral Print
Now that we've seen something far out let's dial it down a few notches and throw it back to the mid-20th century. Check out how this one-piece keeps things down-to-earth, but it's far from boring! You still get the long straps to knot along the side with a criss-cross action under the bust. You don't usually see that kind of thing in a one-piece, so this swimsuit is genuinely unique.
7 - Peony Swimwear – Daisy String Bikini
Keeping with our foray into the classics, we come to the Daisy String Tri and Daisy String Pant two-piece by Peony Swimwear. Today's fashionable elements are there: the longer side ties high on the hips, piping details, and a cute floral print of flowers and gingham. It's a safe choice when you're not sure if you're ready to be bold.
8 - Norma Kamali – Halter Low Back Mio – Rose Garden
Subtle florals are fantastic, but what about a swimsuit showing your groovy side? The Rose Garden print in the Halter Low Back Mio by Norma Kamali does exactly that. Note the deep plunging neckline for a one-piece, a feature that's in style right now. You also get the high waist look and plenty of coverage, but the far-out rose pattern is the star of the show.
9 - Miaou – Bambi Top & Bottom – Parisian Flower Rouge
This swimsuit is similar to the Sariah Top & Phoebe Bottom by Beach Riot but with less emphasis on the ribbed textures. You still get the textured piping in both pieces but with more ruching, which we’re seeing more of as designers release their spring 2022 lineups. The difference is that this print is more on the fluorescent side.
10 - Mikoh – Ischia Top & Skye Bottom
If none of those styles appeal to you, check out the Ischia Top and Skye Bottom by designer Mikoh. It’s yet another simple, down-to-earth design with the same trendy long side ties high on the hips and strappy halter top. Best of all, it’s made from recycled nylon for those who want to do their part to keep the environment clean and safe.
11 - LoveShackFancy – Zanda Bikini Set
OK, we know that most people know the song "Love Shack" by The B-52s, so hum along while you check out this two-piece swimsuit. The top ties in the front for a bolder look, but it also stays within this year's top trends. If you didn't notice, this style is totally a quasi 70s throwback but with modern touches.
12 - Marysia – Broadway in Meadow Flower Print
Keeping with the 70s throwback look, designer Marysia's Broadway in Meadow Flower Print is another far-out two-piece. You still get the floral pattern without going too neon and tropical, but this design features a hand-cut scalloped trim in both pieces. Why rely on colors and prints to showcase a floral scheme when the cut can accentuate the floral look too?
13 - Bareminimale – Santa Cruz
OK, now that we’ve covered the 70s, let’s jump to the 80s throwbacks and highlight the Santa Cruz by designer Bareminimale. You get the neon color scheme that screams for attention and the down-to-earth triangle top, but the bottom is where things tail back into the modern era with its high leg cuts resting high on the hips.
14 - Montce – Dainty Bikini Top & Tamarindo Ruffle Bikini Bottom – Janeane Floral
If you never thought that ruffles could go with swimwear, prepare to be amazed because the geniuses at designer Montce have made it work well. Color-wise, you get a different type of floral that doesn’t play on a tropical theme. Instead, the design features peonies, daisies, and sunflowers, the “long peddle” kind of flowers. But the start of this show is the ruffled bikini bottom because you just don't see that very often.
15 - Heavy Manners – Triangle Front-Tie Top & Full High-Cut “You Can't Get Pregnant From Kissing” Bottoms
The last two-piece we'll feature goes all-in with the high-waisted look on the bottoms but adds a little bit of flair to the top. The front ties keep things contemporary, and you get subtle detailing, too, on the top. Just watch out because Heavy Manners named this one the "you can't get pregnant from kissing" swimsuit for a reason! It's one of the sexiest swimsuits we've seen this season.
Ultimately, no matter which styles you choose, you can’t go wrong with any of these world-class designers.
