Take the High Road
High-waisted retro-style suits are still big for 2018, after becoming one of the top trends last year. It’s for good reason that these styles are still big—it accentuates your waist, providing a flattering look, no matter what your size.

Take a Dip
Plunging isn’t just for pools—one-piece swimwear with a deep plunge is one of the top trends for this season. The coverage of the one-piece is modest, while the deep V makes it just a little risqué.

The Stripe is Right
Marylanders aren’t strangers to a good striped pattern! Thankfully, suits with stripes are hot this season, including some of our favorite navy blue, red, and white nautical patterns.
Criss Cross one piece, $140, Salty
Look beyond the standard cover-up this season. Instead, don a pair of lightweight beach pants for a stylish yet smart swim accessory.
