If you’re looking for something creative and fun, Emma Pake’s designs are mostly inspired by her love of the decadent and architectural lines of the Roaring ‘20s and tropical Art Deco styles that can be found in the sunny city of Miami. The swimsuits and bikinis in her collection reflect her eye for balance and symmetry, resulting in strong, structural shapes and geometry as the running theme. W emmapake.com
Whether you’re looking for form-flattering high-waisted bottoms or illustrative designs, Reformation’s swimwear offerings will allow you to feel just that one step closer to nature thanks to its sustainability commitment. They’re fashioned out of a lightweight and flexible blend of 78% ECONYL Regenerated Nylon and 22% elastene. The former is a material that’s made out of 100% nylon waste that’s salvaged from oceans and landfills, such as fishing nets, carpet fluff, and fabric scraps. W thereformation.com
If you’re missing memories of soaking up the sun and scents of the Mediterranean, Rouje easily makes up for it with their typical French Girl-style swimwear collection. You can find timeless vintage styles in gingham and floral prints. Even the look of them evokes images of sun-kissed skin and Aperol Spritz – the only thing you’ll need to complete the look is a wide, floppy straw hat. W rouje.com
