It’s time to pack your swim gear for your next beach jaunt! This season it’s all about prints and vintage glamour and Tommy Bahama has you covered! Before you shop for your next swimsuit and cover up find out how to style yourself for vacation.



This season Tommy Bahama is taking a trip back into time with vintage inspired swimsuits. Now every woman can be a pin up girl this season with timeless and sexy two piece silhouettes that embrace retro chic vibes with contemporary, figure flattering suits. Look for bold graphics and punchy colors and pair them with bright colored oversized sunglasses for exaggerated glamour. Suits that have halter bust lines, side tie bottoms add interest to a demurer silhouette. Finish your glamorous look with a wide brim hat, jeweled flip flops and a vintage inspired straw tote.


Tommy Bahama is known for their rich prints and this season all of the island inspired foliage are bright and bold! Whether it’s a plunging V one-piece or a strapless bikini these prints will make you stand out on the beach. Pair your prints with solid cover-ups to let your suit do the talking.  Tommy Bahama’s printed suits also come in “fun flips” which means they are reversible! Don’t worry about being seen in the same suit while on vacation, simple reverse to kicky stripes or gingham for a new look every day!


This season there’s an updated take on an old school print.  Tommy Bahama’s fun and flirty gingham prints are featured in bold colors in styles that range from athletic to retro. Pair your gingham with solid board shorts for an evening clam bake or a bike ride on the boardwalk. Little sneakers and bucket hats make your gingham bathing suits perfect for a casual day by the pool as well. 


Swim trunks for men are still a staple at Tommy Bahama.  Every year there’s a new style and this year it’s the Naples Flamingo Coast trunk.  It’s a 6-inch trunk with embroidered pink flamingos. Or try The Cayman Hula Sunset trunk in a little longer length.  It’s a hybrid trunk that’s made like traditional shorts with belt loops and fixed waist yet made with quick-dry swim fabric.  Pair your trunks with flip flops and graphic tee to go from beach to café with ease.  All trunks come with UPF protection and practical pockets!


This season update your cover-up with quick dry dresses, oversized boyfriend shirts or robe-style wraps that can take you from cabana to cocktail hour in style.  Style your cover-up with lightweight beach jewelry and to make your cover-up dazzle add wedges, and a head scarf for glamour.  This season it’s all about the cover-up that can double as a complete outfit for those days when sitting by the pool is more exciting than getting in the pool!

Stop by Tommy Bahama for your swimsuit needs! This season remember it’s all about packing simple with printed and solid “fun flip” suits and swim trunks that double as board shorts as well as chic cover-ups that are dazzling dresses.
