This summer, it’s all about bold prints and big statements. What does that mean for beachwear? Color-blocked bikinis all the way! Make a statement with pastels on black, bust out some large stripes, or even just go for classic, crisp black and white – no matter your style, there’s a way to rock this look. And of course, no beach look is complete without the perfect pair of sunglasses from Zenni Optical. Whether you’re looking for a high-contrast look or want something perfectly matched, you’re in the right place. Read on for our favorite style picks to flaunt with a color-blocked bikini.

What’s a better match for a halter top bikini than colorful acetate frames? Look ready for the tropics and oh-so-vibrant in a color blocked bikini and our matte translucent cat-eye frames. A high waisted bottom and halter cut top give you a retro pin-up silhouette, and cat-eye sunnies add the perfect finishing touch. The best part? Matching your shades to your suit, of course.

TRY: island-ready hibiscus pink cat-eyes to add some warmth to your look, and to match the accents on your bikini.

OR: some vibrant turquoise cat-eye frames if you like a cooler color palette that contrasts with your swimwear.

For a look that never goes out of style, you can’t go wrong with no-nonsense black and white. Dramatic, eye-catching, and iconic, this combo is perfect for anyone looking to make a chic statement on the beach. Throw in some thin frame black cat-eyes and you might just have the perfect look. Our favorite frame for a black-and-white bikini? Our oversized cat-eye sunglasses with a hint of translucent lace pattern for a sexy and feminine edge.

If tropical hues are more your style, you’ll love a sea mist and vivid orange color-combo. Try a color-blocked balconette bikini with these hues and some bold black detailing and pair them with our round and playful Pico sunglasses for an art-deco inspired look that’s definitely ready for a Caribbean getaway (and perfectly matches this suit!). Just throw on an oversized hat and you’re ready to turn heads wherever you rock this look.
