Work it, mamas-to-be! For expectant mamas heading into the Summer season, swimwear selection is always top of mind. Fifty percent of POPSUGAR Moms readers showed off their burgeoning bellies in a bikini while pregnant — and they're not alone. Take a look at some of our favorite expectant celebs who also sported two-piece bathing suits while playing in the sun.
Whether you're a denim loyalist or just on the hunt for the perfect pair of cutoffs, you've come to the right place. But as a warning, this season's play on bold prints isn't for the faint of heart, nor are the cool-girl takes on ultradistressed silhouettes. For the casual dresser, the tomboy short is ideal for the laziest days of Summer. And if you're already riding the '90s throwback wave, then why not embrace the overalls revival while you're at it? Edgier moto vests, fresh pastel skinnies, and a totally new interpretation on patchwork can only mean one thing: the denim lover will be well stocked this Summer. See — and shop — all the standout denim, or choose a key trend below.

Do you, like me, equate sun-filled May days with outdoor eating and drinking? If so, then you'll spring for this speedy, supersimple, no-cook bean salad.
Macaroni and potato salads may get most of the love, but I'd argue the unsung hero of the picnic is actually the bean salad: it's light, full of wholesome ingredients, and satisfying. This six-bean version in particular boasts a symphony of flavors; it's sweet, savory, tangy, a little bit spicy, and bright (thanks to the addition of fresh dill). Best of all, it's free of any cream or mayonnaise, so you'll never have to worry about it baking in the Summer sun.
