Wise's punchy printed one-pieces (accented with slicked-back hair and shimmery gold lips) like this snake-print halter felt sophisticated and chic but still fun enough for an afternoon of playing in the waves.

Sleek, sporty looks have been trending at the pool and by the beach this summer, and judging by Poko Pano's latest collection, the look is still going strong for next season. Here, an acid-orange bandeau in a shiny, neoprene-like material.

Mara Hoffman's mega-hip swim collection was bursting with detail and texture. This geometric-print one-piece, for example, features a criss-crossed panel at the bodice (a recipe for weird tan lines, perhaps, but totally worth it).

If sleek is what you seek, look no further than the ultra-modern swim looks at White Sands, which featured more conservative cuts rendered in a dreamy khaki and pink palette.
