The beautiful days are back, as are the last swimwear. While bikinis and tankinis will always have their place, early in the season we always favor one-pieces that not only look stylish, but also put our bodies in their best light so that we can feel confident about go out.
The latest wave of one-piece swimsuits come in fresh silhouettes and a wide range of levels of coverage for so many more options than your average swimsuit: romper and looking equally cute in either ” , says Megan Puma, buyer of Bare Necessities swimwear. Support and fitness are also more common than ever.
One and done? Don’t worry if we do.
If you are already a fan of one piece swimsuits, each of them will add new interest to your collection. If you’re not, these adorable options will make you reconsider. From alluring ruffled skirts to a two-in-one reversible tropical print, a Greek goddess-inspired ruched suit to a plus size one-piece with a dramatic sleeve, these bring all the excitement of a new outfit to the beach or pool.
Who says a one-room has to be neat and clean? For the functionality of a costume that goes nowhere with the allure of slightly exposed skin, try monokinis and cutouts. They show a little something-something, but not everything. Choose the style that highlights your favorite feature to direct all the attention where you want it, whether it’s a neckline that enhances the neckline, an hourglass waist, or a taller fit to highlight those endless legs.
The same style that works wonderfully in evening wear also works great in swimming for some reason – no one ever says they can’t support their collarbones and shoulders, right? In trendy prints and rich, classic solids, this type of swimsuit draws the eye to the upper body and lends a fully dressed vibe at the same time.
“I see more and more people doing this, and I understand,” Megan says. “They’re so handy to have at a pool party, water park, sauna – occasions like this where you want a blanket and don’t want to worry about your costume. ” This style inspired by shorts and tank tops is so new that it manages to be both tech-savvy and understated, usually a tightrope that is quite difficult to walk.
And then there’s this innovative category: As flattering as they are functional, these convertible styles are basically like having a swimsuit with a built-in coverage. Depending on how you tie or gather them, you can wear a convertible swimsuit in different ways: to look like a bathrobe, a tankini, a sarong, or a traditional one-piece. One less thing to throw in the beach bag.
