Pool Party Style

As summer heats up and you start prepping to jump in the nearest pool, check out our overview of the latest trends in bathing suit style for girls and guys!

Plaid is Rad + Check It

All year long, two of the major fashion trends have been plaid – a pattern of criss-crossing stripes in different colors – and square checks, so it only makes sense that these looks have crossed over into pool-appropriate apparel. Check out this cool checked cami swimset from Roxy for girls, and these awesome plaid shorts (they come in a two-pack) from Surf Zone:

Polka Dot Hot

Seems like the polka dot will never go out of style! This classic pattern hits the spot, even when that spot is underwater! For girls, we love Mystic Apparel’s sweet polka-dot two piece; for guys, we’re not sure anything can beat these Quiksilver board shorts:

Rainbow Bright

A splash of color is always a good thing, especially when you’re splashing around in the pool. Rainbow is a big hit this year in swim style, and both boys and girls can sport this multi-toned look. Here are two of our fave rainbow swim statements: a tie-dye number from Xhilaration (girls) and shorts from Billabong (guys):

Plus, take a peek at these cute rainbow board shorts from Aeropostale for girls:

Flower Power

Who says flowers are just for girls (although Roxy makes the prettiest flowered bikini ever!)? Big, bold petals can look just as swimming pool cool on guys; here’s a pair of Hawaiian-flower-inspired trunks from Quiksilver to prove it:

Skull-o-Rama

Skulls on a swimsuit? You know it! Both girls and boys can rock this style while they’re swimming, thanks to Old Navy (girls’ one piece with rainbow-colored skulls) and Mossimo (boys’ skull-and-crossbones swim short):
