The trend with mens' swimwear is swim-to-street versatility and design. Instead of elastic bands and baggy cuts, swim trunks now have slimmer silhouettes, belt loops, zip flies, and darts (much like tailored trousers). These retro-inspired plaids and two-tone wayfarers are "Mad Men" cool.

Baby's look:
Toweling poncho and swim bottom, $25.50 and $14.96, bodenusa.com
Havianas "Baby Top" sandals, $14, piperlime.com
Cabana Life reversible hat, $20, cabanalife.com

This terry cloth hooded poncho is perfect for quick dry-offs in and out of water, and the swim bottom is specially designed for diaper wearers.

Curvy bodies

Strategically-placed color-blocking not only slims your waistline, but is a big trend down the runway in both swim and ready-to-wear. This look also happens to be environmentally-conscious.

Sand will just slide right off!
