Trend Watch: Stripes!


Our vision’s got us seeing stripes in a big way. And we couldn’t be more stoked about it.

When it comes to fashion, the possibilities are endless.

Fashion can be a form of self-expression. It’s a way of showing off your personality, making your body look its best, and letting your unique sense of style take center stage.

Fashion can also give you a chance to take some risks. It allows you to push the limits, make bold choices, and demand attention.

Then again, fashion can also be nostalgic. Certain pieces evoke memories of the past, of classic beauties and timeless style.

But the most fashionable pieces? They manage to do all of those things at once.

That’s part of what makes striped swimwear feel so effortlessly cool, year after year.

Stripes are so wearable, versatile, and classic. There’s truly a striped style for everyone, whether you’re looking for timeless nautical charm, bright youthful vibes, bohemian style, or even classic old Hollywood glamour. Striped swimwear is a trend everyone can find a way to rock all year long.

No matter what type of striped swimsuit you’re after, Sixoneosix’s got you covered. Here are a few of our favorite striped swimsuits that can fit every taste, body type, and style.


Sweet & Slimming: Vertical Pinstripes

Why it works:
There’s a reason pinstripes are such a classic. A simple, light pinstripe pattern always looks breezy and fresh. Plus, thin vertical lines do wonders for your figure. They accentuate your curves and make your torso look longer, all while slimming out your midsection.


What to look for:
A traditional pinstripe pattern features a white background with very thin navy or black stripes. If you’re looking to keep your look totally classic, that’s what you’ll want to keep an eye out for. But a bit of color can add a fresh twist! Look for a one-piece if you want a slimming effect.

Our picks:

Simple, yet stunning. The Stay Young Stripe One-piece Swimsuit effortlessly does it all. Its vertical stripes are so flattering on any body type. Its classic pinstripe pattern feels totally timeless and trendy at the same time. And it looks absolutely stunning against sun-kissed skin.

This swimsuit gives a bit of a makeover to a classic. The Blue and White Stripe Ruffled One-Piece Swimsuit features flattering vertical stripes, with contrasting horizontal stripes at the waist to cinch the waist even more. Its light blue stripes and ruffled neckline add a touch of sweetness.

Super sexy AND slimming? Count us in! The Stripy V-Neck Plus Size One Piece Swimsuit adds a sultry air to classic pinstripes. Its lace-trimmed plunging neckline shows off your killer curves while its horizontal pinstripes flatter your figure. What’s not to love? (Not plus-size? It’s also available in smaller sizes here!)



Beautifully Bohemian: Patterned Stripes

Why it works:

Stripes don’t always have to be classic or predictable. If you’re looking for a suit that’s more free-spirited, offbeat, and beachy, rocking multicolored and multipatterned stripes can totally work for you, all while staying completely on-trend.

What to look for:

Look for different colors, geometric patterns, and varying thicknesses. Keep an eye out for stylish cutouts, bandeau styles, and strappy details. Boho stripes tend to work best when they’re vertical.

Our picks:

We’re obsessed with this bohemian striped monokini. The Boho Stripe Halter Cutout One-Piece Swimsuit proves that there isn’t just one way to wear stripes. Its blue, navy, and offwhite colors feel very traditionally beachy, while its geometric pattern adds a trendy touch. Plus, we love the sexy cutouts and the self-tie halter. Pair it with oversized sunnies and a straw hat and you’ll easily look like the coolest one at the beach.

It’s no secret why this cool bikini is a Sixoneosix bestseller. The Burgundy Boho Print High-Waisted Bikini perfectly mixes a retro silhouette with a cool bohemian pattern. We love how the intricate burgundy stripes pop against its crisp white background and clean cut.




Pretty & Playful: Pattern Mixing

Why it works:

Mixing patterns in unexpected ways always feels so fresh and stylish. It gives any swimsuit a more youthful, carefree look.

What to look for:

When it comes to pattern mixing, the possibilities really are endless. With the right color scheme, stripes can go with just about any pattern, from florals to gingham to polka dots. Since pattern mixing is always a bit of a statement on its own, look for more muted, coordinating colors to keep your entire look grounded.

Our picks:

Sixoneosix customers love this trend! The Miss U Poppy Print One-Piece Swimsuit is a top-rated bestseller. We love how the green and white stripes go perfectly with the watercolor-style poppy print bottoms. Plus, the horizontal stripe print and contrasting waist tie are so incredibly flattering. (Another big perk of stripes!)

This adorable bikini has us convinced: stripes and florals were totally made for each other. The Yellow Stripe and Floral Bikini gives more of a retro vibe to the pattern mixing style. We love the striped details on the high-waisted bottoms and bustier top



Simply Chic: Mixing B&W Stripes

Why it works:

Black and white stripes always add an air of sophistication to any ensemble. But mixing stripes adds a whole other element of style. You’ll look like you just stepped out of a magazine with this trend.

What to look for:

Keep your color scheme simple, with black and white on the top and bottom. Look for suits that use both white stripes on a black background and black stripes on a white background. This trend works best with separates!

Our picks:

The chicest of the chic. In the Pinstripe Bandeau Bikini, you’ll look totally stylish without even trying. We love how crisp and clean this suit looks with white on top and navy on the bottom.

Mix your stripes and your trends in the Navy and White Stripe Strappy Lace-Up Bikini. This suit features classic black and white contrasting vertical stripes. The bottoms are reversible, so you can switch up your look to either match or contrast. With a totally customizable fit, it’s a great bikini for any body type.


Nice & Nautical: Thick Stripes

Why it works:
Ahoy, cutie! These striped suits will make you want to set sail into the great unknown. (Or at least flirt it up with a handsome sailor on the beach.) Thick stripes are such a summer classic. You’ll exude confidence and retro vibes.

What to look for:
Look for bold, contrasting white and colored stripes. For a really classically nautical look, go with navy and white horizontal stripes. Otherwise, go with your favorite! We love how this trend looks on a one-piece swimsuit.

Our picks:

Come sail away in this summery suit. The Colorful Striped Bandeau Bikini is effortlessly stylish. Its ruffled straps add a little something special. Pair it with an oversized floppy sun hat, then go sail into the sunset!

The Green and White Stripe One-Piece Swimsuit is the perfect blend of trendy and retro. Its horizontal thick green and white stripes are so flattering on any body type and skin tone. Plus, its deep V neck and back add an element of sexiness appeal. Pair it with a bold red lip to really play up the retro vibes!

Be on trend with these trendy striped swimsuit that embodies your personality and makes you feel beautiful.
