Tropical swimwear makes a splash, especially when paired with the right accessories.

Whether you're packing your bags for a tropical getaway, or just preparing for your fair share of rooftop lounging at The Four Seasons Downtown, there are more than a few pieces you’ll want to invest in this season. A teeny bikini is definitely in order—especially when the print is bright or tropical. For the most fashion-forward look, don’t hesitate to mix tops and bottoms or patterns with prints. For a fun, Palm Springs-inspired edge, look to Lilly Pulitzer for classic, beach party-worthy wear. And don’t forget: the overall poolside ensemble is über styled this year—with chunky jewelry, gauzy kaftans and bubble gum-hued sandals playfully competing for a look that’s simply sizzling and little bit '80s.
