In honor of the impending three-day weekend, we narrowed down the hottest and newest swimwear offerings in hopes that you're headed out of town for a beach-y getaway (while we're in the midst of a brutally cold New York Fashion Week).

Even if you don't have waterfront plans for Presidents' Day weekend, now is one of the best times to shop for swimwear. Fresh collections are just starting to hit stores and it's those collections that tend to be the strongest (read: you'll be bummed when they sell out just as warmer temps settle in). One of the most captivating cool-girl brands that has recently made wave all over Instagram is Kiini. The brand creates unique crochet swimsuits with boho yet modern vibes—styles that will have you looking just as cool as the beloved Samantha Jones in the first (and best) Sex in the City movie (pictured, above).

Keep scrolling to shop the Kiini (pictured below, center), plus other must-have bikinis, sexy colorblock one-pieces, and more chic beach essentials.
