Similarly, the Capri Bikini, the Zara Bikini Top, will bring out your summer glow and match perfectly with any pair of chic beach pants to create the ideal beach, lounge look.

Now, if you’re going for a more sporty 70’s look, the Curacao Bikini Top with its cutouts and zig-zag, colorful print, may be your best bet (even our favorite Bikini beach babe, Tash Oakley had to have it!). The Fleur Bikini top also gives off the vibrant look with the gold fabric surrounded with colorful  “it” crochet. Because the crochet bikini look is a very 70’s fad, why not combine another trend of the time, the halter top. The Dream Catcher Halter is a blush color with intricate floral knit detail.

Suit up for Summer in Marysia Swimwear from Shop Splash

Spring break may be behind us, but summer is quickly approaching, which means it’s time to take stock of your swimsuit collection. Whether your old favorites are worn out or just not trendy anymore, our Shop Splash designer Marysia Swim has released some fantastic new one-pieces and bikinis you’ll want to wear all summer long.

The Palm Springs bikini offers lots of coverage with its bralette top and high-waisted bottoms. Both in a delicate cream color, the top is made of a stretchy textured fabric that hugs your curves in all the right places. It has a banded hem and Marysia Swim’s signature scalloped neckline. This ties up in the front and has gold grommets.

The bottoms are also textured and scalloped. With boy shorts coverage, these belly-button-skimming bottoms have crisscrossing side ties that are totally chic.

The appropriately-named Spring bikini top and Broadway bottoms make a great set as well. This triangle bikini has a delicate yet appealing texture. Its blush pink color is beautiful. It features a back clasp and scalloped edging. The seamless bottoms are somewhat cheeky, but you’ll still feel covered up.

Why not a one-piece this summer? The Broadway maillot in metallic brown is an ideal choice. The texture and shine of this swimsuit gives off a unique metal look. It has princess seams for a flattering fit and ties up around your neck halter style. The front is punctuated with pink crisscrossing ties with matching metal grommets.

The Antibes strapless top and matching bottoms are also metallic, but the effect is subtler since this set is creamy white. The bikini top has a center front tie with grommets. It closes via a metal clasp in the back. The scalloped edging here looks especially pretty. The bottoms are seamless and designed for moderate coverage.

Another covetable one-piece is the Mott cutout maillot in Marysia Swim’s lovely rose pink. This has a huge cutout in the back but still offers moderate rear coverage. It closes via the same metal back closures featured on some of the designer’s other swimsuits. The side cutouts in the front are totally darling. Your chest will stay covered for all that other exposed skin.

When Marysia Swim delves into patterns, the results are astounding. Take the Antibes maillot in black hibiscus, for example. Although it’s like the Mott maillot, with the black and white floral pattern, it looks like a totally different swimsuit. The straps are thin on purpose and are removeable. The bandeau cutouts are quite stylish, too.

Lastly, we have the Newport maillot, another one-piece winner. This black swimsuit has a thick belt that adds visual interest. If you want to take the belt off though, you can. Otherwise, this swimsuit boasts a deep V-cut in the front and back and a peplum waist. You can only find these great Marysia Swim looks at Shop Splash!
