The particular breed of pressure that accompanies selecting the perfect swimsuit for a pool party, a day at the beach, or simply a good Instagram moment is beyond daunting, especially taking into consideration LA's obsession with fitness and teeny-tiny bikinis (we see you, Swifty). But now that temps are steadily rising and your social calendar is swiftly filling up with wet and wild festivities, it's time to buckle down and select your skin-bearing look. Why not do as the celebrities do?
From Kylie's bold sequined look to Bella Hadid's demure one-piece, you're sure to find a pool or beach-ready piece that represents your personality and highlights what you want to show off while subtly covering what you don't. Check out our roundup of what famous names are wearing to the beach these days, ranging from surprisingly affordable picks from Aerie to expensive investment pieces from Eres.
