Would You Wear… an Animal Graphic Swimsuit?

If there’s one swimwear trend that’s having its moment right now, it’s the graphic-print swimsuit. Combine that with a gigantic animal face and you have a whirlwind of a summer micro-trend that has taken over pool parties and beaches across the globe. As weird as it sounds, swimsuits adorned with¬†animal face graphics are a really hot trend this summer.

One-pieces are the most common version of this swimwear craze, but two-pieces are also in abundant supply. If you’re willing to jump on board with this wild-kingdom-inspired style, we’ve created a beach-ready look for inspiration, featuring trendy pieces like denim cutoffs, geometric prints, and feather-embellished jewelry:

    Eh, not for me. Animal print is cool, but I don’t like having actual faces on my clothing. It weirds me out, especially considering the placement of the eyes on the clothing, haha.

    I think it’s kind of cool, except when the eyes are right on the boobs…kinda awkward.

    PacSun was selling this leotard with a photograph of kittens printed on it. My friend who works there says that people actually bought it every so often. I am very, very interested to meet these people and see how they style it.

    omg I want to wear that Urban Outfitter piece with some skinny jeans and funky heels. I know it’s a swimsuit, but it’s killer.

    Not for me! Agree with the above comments – the placement of the eyes on the clothing is just too weird. Not a fan of wearing an animal face!

    Nope. Never. Forgive me, but the graphic designs of the eyes on the tatas and the faces on the stomachs is extremely unflattering. That’s just my opinion, though. Kudos to those brave and talented enough to pull this trend off. :)

    I’m not really into this trend for the same reasons given by people above. That being said, I really like the tiger one above, but only because I really really love tigers.

    Girl: “Hey, my eyes are up here.”

    Boy: “I can’t help it! Your swimsuit is staring at me!”‘

    Haha, yeah not for me. However I do like the general idea of a photo print on a swimsuit.
