This label is beloved by stylish ladies all over for their uber-feminine everything, from ready-to-wear to accessories and, of course, swimwear. Case in point: Emily Ratajkowski setting the ‘gram on fire in this frilly two-piece.

The Meridian Stripe Bikini ($300) is like your favorite bathing suit from childhood, reimagined for your womanly, grown-up self. Top it off with gold jewelry to add some edge.

Norma Kamali

Norma Kamali launched her iconic label in 1967 and it’s still going strong today. Her line infuses activewear influences with sexy cuts and has become a staple in the swim wardrobes of fashion girls and starlets, including Kourtney Kardashian.

High rise and low cut, the Stud Marissa ($575) is a celeb fave. Who wouldn‘t want to look this smokin’?
