When sophisticated silhouettes meet luxe fabrics, the result is L*Space swimwear — designer Monica Wise’s irresistible collection of bathing suits and cover-ups. Based in Orange County, California, Wise has won the Surfwear Industry Manufacturer's Association’s "swimwear designer of the year" award more than five times thanks to her bold and original halter and bandeau bikinis and one-piece swimsuits, which feature distinctive prints and details like fringe trim (Wise’s signature embellishment) or gold-embossed metal hardware. In recent years Wise has launched the modern-vintage label Maio Swim and The Collection — a line of beaded and embroidered rompers, flowing caftans and maxi dresses, and other beach essentials. Whatever your swim style, be sure to grab one of L*Space’s flattering ruched jersey tunics for when you need to cover up.

Put a sexy spin on your beach look with barely-there bikinis and plunging one-piece suits.
The bold colors and even bolder prints here mean there’s no fading into the background at the beach this summer. Standout brands like Jungle Gurl (a favorite of Rihanna), L’Space, and Zimmerman serve up a major range of cuts to flatter every shape — and mood. Take your pick of curve-hugging one-pieces with sexy plunging necklines, retro floral suits with high-waisted bottoms, and made-to-mix bikini separates, from halter bandeaus to chain-trimmed hipsters.
