Textured swimsuits are everywhere right now, from pretty pastel hues to classic nautical stripes. Here are 28 we love, catering to all budgets.

Just about every fashion influencer worth their salt has been spotted in a Hunza G ribbed one-piece, from Monikh Dale in her lemon sherbet style to Anna Brem-Wilson in electric lilac and chunky gold jewels. Today the brand are known best for being the OG of the ribbed seersucker swimsuit trend, but their history is part of a far bigger cultural style moment. Founded in 1984, the then Creative Director Peter Meadows was responsible for that cut-out blue and white mini dress Julia Roberts wore in Pretty Women, arguably one of film’s most iconic style scenes. Using that same sculpting but stretchy fabric cut into sexy shapes, the brand now focuses almost exclusively on swimwear and, naturally, the high street have followed.

For sporty shapes, look to ARKET where they have an array of colour-blocking pieces in minimalist shapes. Their square-neck one-piece is the perfect style to wear under an oversized white shirt on the beach or up your cost per wear and wear it as a top paired with denim cut-offs and sandals in the sun. For something a little more cutesy, & Other Stories’ button-through textured swimsuit has a nod to the ’60s about it. Style it up with cat-eye sunnies and a printed silk headscarf.

The trend looks set to stay, so if you’ve got a summer holiday booked or are holding out for another British heatwave, this is one swimsuit style you’re going to want to wear for years to come.
