Get Beach-Ready With Our Latest Shop-a-Matic

Clockwise from left: One-Shoulder Bandeau Bikini by Maaji, Number One by Karen Walker, Test Pattern Shades, Belle Fille Low Back One-Piece by Seventh Wonderland, and Woodshed Board Shorts by D.C.

After months of never-ending snow — followed by the past few weeks of torrential rain — it's been hard to fully embrace a rather tepid spring, despite how warm it is outside. But the inevitable influx of fancy-schamncy invites and press releases about the Hamptons remind us that, finally, Memorial Day weekend is upon us! Our latest Shop-a-Matic has all the shades and swimsuits you'll need for a hot and hazy summer filled with coconut-scented sunscreen and sandy toes. Skimpy bikinis are perennially popular, but designers are also delving into sexy one-piece suits as well. And while some call for shorter swim trunks, we found 42 styles ranging from the newer and more revealing suits to the more traditional knee-grazers.

One-Shoulder Bandeau Bikini by Maaji
Price: Top and bottom, each $59.
Why We Like It: A one-shoulder bikini is just as sexy as a teeny-tiny string bikini, with less fear of indecent exposure.

Number One by Karen Walker
Price: $180
Why We Like It: Neon appeared everywhere — from eyes to lips to dresses — on the spring runways. If head-to-toe electric yellow is too overwhelming, a pair of tipped shades adds the right amount of pop to any spring look.

Test Pattern Shades
Price: $24
Why We Like It: These inexpensive striped frames have a retro feel, as if they were unearthed in an obscure thrift shop. Pair with a vintage-inspired high-waisted bikini for a updated take on the sixties beach babe.

Belle Fille Low Back One-Piece by Seventh Wonderland
Price: $225
Why We Like It: After seeing loads of one-piece suits tucked into cut-off denim shorts at Coachella, the style is making a comeback. This patterned one features a demure front with a revealing, low-cut, crisscross back.

Woodshed Board Shorts by D.C.
Price: $59
Why We Like It: For the thigh-flashing-averse man, these trompe l'oeil board shorts have a safe, laid-back, surfer vibe.
