16 Beachy Ways To Sport A Novelty Print For Summer

You may still be sporting your big Uniqlo puffer, but warmer weather is coming. So, to get you through those times you spend gazing out your window wondering why you live in a climate where 45-degree days feel balmy, imagine a sun-filled afternoon sipping lemonade and rocking a cheeky, printed bathing suit. And, really, now's the time to get a jump-start on swimsuit shopping, so you can scoop up the chicest styles before they fly off the shelves and you're stuck searching eBay for the monokini of your dreams.
Retro, high-waisted two-pieces and low-back maillots feel fresh and current, and safari themes and fruit prints let your personality run wild. Whether you're Aruba bound next month or just plotting your grand return to summer, you'll want to put your best (fashion) face forward. And, these suits prove you don't have to sacrifice killer style to be scintillating. Flamingos? Check. Fruit? Elephants? Check. Check. Need a warm-weather version of that trusty novelty-print sweatshirt you haven't taken off in two weeks? Meet 16 beach-ready replacements!
