This youthful and free-spirited Tommy Hilfiger Spring 2016 ready-to-wear collection recalled the ‘70s bohemian Rasta style that sometimes borderlined on retro. Crochet swimwear and sundresses, bucket hats, patchwork dresses, and drawstring pants galore in a palette of rust orange, mustard yellow, and seaweed green.

Designer: Tommy Hilfiger
Year Established: 1985
Spring 2016 Inspiration: Rasta island life.
Star Pieces: The horizontally striped, floor-grazing knit dresses with side slits; the mesh cover-ups; the rainbow-colored patchwork skirts; and the multi-colored kaleidoscopic, chiffon halter dress.
The Middle Eastern Sale: There are plenty of cover-ups here that will seamlessly take you from your sunbed to your lunch seat on the boardwalk.
Drawbacks: If you want to ruin your crochet swimwear, go in the water; meanwhile the bucket hats just looked funny, not fun.
