The Trendiest Floral Swimsuits This Summer Are Less Dainty And More Tropical

Nothing says summer like choosing a new swimsuit to ring in the sunny season. Of course, everyone knows the best part of selecting swimwear is picking out your favorite prints. Whether you're a fan of board shorts or barely-there bikinis, it's easy to spend hours flipping through the latest designs. Swimsuit connoisseurs know some styles never change, like flashy leopard spots or classic polka dots. But one print in particular seems to be getting a major makeover this season: florals.

Forget about the ditsy floral prints or muted bouquets of yesteryear — this season's flowery swimwear emphasizes bold, exotic designs. Think psychedelic poppies, tropical blooms, and beachy color palettes that would make Florida fashion legend Lilly Pulitzer proud. Want to get in on this trendy summer look? There are dozens of ways to do so, but we've hand-picked the best floral swimsuit looks around to give you some inspiration first. So, grab your favorite sunglasses, pack your pool float, and let's take a look at what this year's floral swimwear has to offer.

A floral rash guard swimsuit

Even if you're not a professional surfer, you can look the part with a colorful floral rashguard and matching bottoms. Best of all, this outfit is more than just a pretty look — its long sleeves also offer added sun protection. Top it off with a high bun similar to the one seen here, or wear a headband in a coordinating color to match your sweet suit.

Technicolor daisy two-piece

Instead of the same old white and yellow daisies, why not try something a little different, like this technicolor look? A two-piece suit in a retro floral print never goes out of style, and we love the way these funky colors complement one another. For a true throwback vibe, pair it with your best oversized sunglasses and a gauzy shawl.

Tropical bloom swim dress

When you grow tired of bandeaus and tankini tops, consider trying on a swim dress instead. This elegant swimwear solution protects against wardrobe malfunctions and flatters a range of body types. Plus, its bright, flowery print sets it apart from other suits at the beach. All that's left to do is find a summery straw hat to complete this laid-back look.

Dreamy orange swim set

We can't get over this striking orange swim set. The suit and flowing beach pants feature a retro floral print that could easily pass for a vintage design, perfect for long trips along the boardwalk. Accessorize with a floppy pink beach hat like the style shown here or a pair of thick-rimmed sunnies to match the blushing blooms found in its print.

Multicolor floral coverup

If your goal is to turn heads this summer, look no further than this dazzling floral coverup. Its beautiful midnight blue color is the perfect canvas for a showy garden print, and its matching bikini is equally impressive. Add some color with a coordinating rainbow manicure, or slip on a sparkling gold chain necklace to take things to the next level.

Hot pink hibiscus halter

What's better than the color pink? Hot pink, naturally. This beachy two-piece incorporates two shades of neon pink for a stunning optical effect. The surfer girl charm doesn't end there, however; it also has an adorable halter top to boot. Throw on a pink scrunchie for a casual touch or a flowered hair clip if you're feeling fancy.

Marigold three-piece swim set

Orange you glad to see this unique three-piece on our list? The giant marigold print is a surefire conversation-starter and looks fabulous when worn with yellowy accessories. Try sporting a yolky tote as shown, or drape some amber sea glass jewelry around your neck and wrists. Either way, you'll be the center of attention in this cheerful beachwear.

Blue lagoon one-piece swimsuit

It doesn't matter if your plans take you to the ocean or just the hotel pool this summer — we've found the perfect floral one-piece for all your swimwear needs. This elegant suit features a tropical-inspired print replete with flowers and palm fronds, as well as a sultry center cut-out. Once you've selected the perfect accessories, grab your ideal summer beach read and get ready to unwind.
