Whether you're looking for a traditional one-piece, a two piece with mix and match styles, or a rash vest to cover up from the sun, there's plenty to choose from this summer if you're looking for new swimwear. 

Here are some of the best options around:

Long sleeved suits and rash vests

Rash vests and long sleeved one pieces are a great way to stay sun safe. They're ideal if you're in and out of the water surfing, kayaking or swimming, as they keep the sun off your skin, as well as being comfortable to move in. 

This tropical print Roxy PT Beach Classics Long Sleeve Surfsuit, $109.99, is a great option. It has a high neck and a zip at the back so it's easy to get on and off. If you're not keen on high necks, the Roxy Sunset Boogie Long Sleeve Surfsuit, $89.99, has a round neck and offers UVB50+ protection.

The Roxy Sunset Haze Short Sleeve Rash Vest, $39.99, has a round neck, and is short sleeved if you're after something a bit cooler.
