With summer quickly drawing to a close (yes, we are devastated too), we wanted to take the time to look back on our favorite celebrity swimwear moments. Whether they were on a romantic tropical vacation with their significant other or simply spending a lazy day on the beach with friends, it seems like celebrities definitely took advantage of these summer months to flaunt their hot bikini bods in the season’s most popular designer swimwear trends. From beaded detailing and florals to pin-up bikinis and tribal prints, we couldn’t get enough of the swimwear looks that were trending poolside and by the sandy shores. Better yet, most of their looks are totally re-creatable, so you too can feel like a celebrity when you hit the beach in these last weeks of summer. With all of these amazing styles, we can’t wait to see what our favorite pop stars, Oscar-winning actresses, and reality divas alike will have in store for the swimwear 2014 season!

Here’s a re-cap of our favorite Celebrity Swimwear looks from 2013:

(1) Crazy for the Kardashians

What’s a celebrity swimwear hit-list without mentioning our favorite reality queens, the Kardashians! It seems like the three sisters were loving sexy one pieces for their tropical getaways this year. Even though two of them have hit motherhood, this hasn’t stopped Kourtney or new-mom Kim from flaunting their famous curves on beach. Khloe was also looking fabulous this season in flattering styles that showed off her toned physique.
