The athleisure trend from last year is making waves in the swimwear world. And for those looking for a new beach look, a one-piece with cut-outs looks so much more modern than the basic triangle bikini—and it's more comfortable, too. But that's not the only athletic silhouette to be on the lookout for. This summer, dive into these sportier styles that are as functional as they are chic.
