With the official start of summer just around the corner, we can now start shopping for swimsuits for each member of the family. Even when we’re just going to the neighborhood pool, it’s great to look the part with this season’s trendy swimsuits for parents and kids. But since each family member can potentially have very discriminating taste when it comes to fashion, we’ve selected a couple of options for each family member in two categories – sporty and stylish. Whether you seek simplicity, comfort, bright colorful patterns, or fashion-forward designs, we’ve got you covered.
Clockwise: For him – Polo Ralph Lauren Logo Embroidered Swim Shorts, Burkman Bros Waves Boardshorts. For girls – Nike Girls’ 2-Piece Tonal Static Bikini Swimsuit, Nike Girls’ One-Piece Spiderback Frequency Swimsuit. For boys – Under Armour Kids Shorebreak Boardshort, Volcom Little Boys’ Big Mon Board Shorts. For her – Zimmermann Hyper Asymmetric Bikini, Lisa Marie Fernandez The Genevieve bikini.
Sporty swimsuits provide a bit more coverage and padding than average swimsuits. The guys’ sport swimsuits tend to be longer in length for beach sports and at times have extra pockets.
Clockwise: For him – Boohoo Breton Stripe Swim Shorts, BOSS BODYWEAR Springfish Swim Shorts. For girls – Accessorize Bora Bora Placement Swimsuit, Billabong ‘To Dye For’ Two-Piece Swimsuit. For boys – Hatley Treasure Island Boys’ Swim Trunks, a&f Board Shorts. For her – Mara Hoffman Rising Palm bikini, Mara Hoffman Harvest cutout printed swimsuit.
What defines these swimsuits as stylish are mainly the detailed designs, like fringe and cutouts, as well as the tropical prints and bold patterns. These are definite stand-out swimsuits, but in a great way.
