Nike One-Piece Swimsuit

You can't go wrong with the classic one-piece for your next swim meet, but this fast-back option by Nike takes the look to the next level. Its cut-out design and thick straps are specifically constructed to add high style to the suit while enhancing your speed and overall comfort. We love that black is easy to match with other stylish swim accessories like cover-ups and caps, but the suit is also available in three other colors. ($50, was $66; dickssportinggoods.com)

Freestyle Bikini

It's no secret that camo has been a popular print this season, so why not add it to your swimsuit collection? This stylish bikini is even made with stretchy, recycled swim fabric so you can feel good about your purchase. Plus, it's quick-drying to ensure you'll be comfortable all day no matter what activity you're participating in. Wear it for swimming laps at the pool, training for a triathlon, or just a casual day at the beach with friends. Note: The top and matching bottoms are sold separately, so make sure to add both to your cart. ($59 each; athleta.com)

Kalleigh Wetsuit

Whether you're a pro at surfing or preparing for your first lesson, this wetsuit from Free People is a must. It has a compression fit that moves with you and never constricts, and the long-sleeve design doubles as a rashguard. Not only is the color block pattern super stylish, but it can also improve your safety by making you more noticeable to others in the water—including boaters. And, thanks to the SPF 50+ fabric, you'll have an extra layer of protection from the sun, too. ($265; freepeople.com)

Marbella Crop Rashguard

If you've been searching for a competition swimsuit that'll protect you from abrasions but looks just as sexy as a bikini, this top might be your new go-to. Its ultra-resilient, stretchy fabric makes it a great option for all types of water sports, whether they're low or high intensity. We love this versatile suit because it's easy to mix and match with other pieces you already have, but you can never go wrong with the matching bottoms to create a cohesive look—especially when they're both on major sale.
