6 Swimsuits Perfect for Your Summer at the Beach

6 Swimsuits Perfect for Your Summer at the Beach | Sun-Surf Realty

It's that time of year again! Some women love it. Some women hate it. It's comes as part of your Emerald Isle, NC beach vacation. Yes, we're talking about swimsuit season. The good news is that this summer season offers a lot of fashionable yet functional choices when it comes to bikinis, tankinis, one-piece swimsuits—and everything in between. And just because ruffles, the crocheted-look, deep plunging necklines, high-cut legs, high-waisted bottoms, and bandeau tops are in style this season—it doesn't mean that you can't find something that has just a hint of those trends without it being "too much" or "not you". 

We've picked just a few of the many swimsuit styles that are hot this beach season and that you'll want to take a look at before your Emerald Isle beach vacation. We are trying to stick to the basic trends here, but you can take these style ideas and use them to platform your search for the perfect swimsuit and customize the ideal look and fit for you.

You're sure to see these swimsuit style elements at a lot of different retailers, but we encourage to do a little shopping at our local Emerald Isle shops and stores to find a unique look that you won't find at the usual big-name retailers. With that being said, all of these swimsuit fashion photos are from Target's website, so if you really like what you see and just want to keep it basic, go ahead and click on the photos which are directly linked to those items.

Now, back to the swimsuit styles and trends we are loving this year. Happy swimsuit shopping! 


This strappy crocheted swimsuit with plunging neckline and high-cut legs is a great choice when you want to wear a one-piece that shows a little skin—but not too much. It's a nice balance of both flirty and totally wearable at the beach, and you feel confident in the ocean without worrying that it's going to shift or move with the ever-changing waves and tides. 


Hey there sunbathers, this is a wonderful swimsuit for you! Minimal strap lines yet enough coverage to wear on the beach without worry, this off-the-shoulder swimsuit comes with removable sleeves that won't interfere with your tan or leave you with unwanted tan lines. It's minimal but classically beautiful with style that never goes out of season.


High-waisted swimsuits are definitely trending this summer and that pairs well with the beach since you won't have to worry about your swimwear becoming untied or moving into the wrong places when you're out in the water. This high-waisted two-piece gives great coverage that won't slip and lets enough of your skin show through to be both youthful and modern. We love it!


This isn't your granny-style one piece. This elegant swimsuit has a small amount of ruffling on the sides that's just enough to be fun and a high neck with loop hole to give it a little bit of sass without being too revealing. This white-washed color is coastal and beautiful, but it would look great in any color or pattern. It's also equally suitable for the young and young-at-heart. 


In direct juxtaposition to the plunging necklines and high-cut legs we've been talking about, this square-neck top and hipster-style bikini bottom is just as flattering—but in a very different way. This streamlined look works well on a lot of varying body types, too. What we love most is the back! The thick-strapped back and bowtie paired with the cinched bottom are adorable accents that bring this swimsuit to the next level of loveliness. 


Last but not least, we can't leave out the classic triangle cut bikini top with string bikini bottom. This surfer-girl style swimsuit has a crocheted top so you're right in style, but the options are pretty limitless so you can choose the pattern, print and style you love most. Go ahead and bring a few different patterns and solids so you can mix and match, giving you several possibilities without taking up much room in your suitcase.
