Did swim season sneak up on you? Let me give you the CliffNotes: It’s a fashion free-for-all. I’m talking polka dots, one-shoulder, ruffles, high-waisted, stripes, belted, you name it. But the one thing we can all agree upon is the one-piece swimsuit. This classic silhouette has been making a comeback for a few seasons now, and it’s officially here to stay. The best part of all? It flatters every shape and size. So long teeny bikini.
The iconic red one-piece swimsuit was popularized by Baywatch in the 90s and received a sleek overall for 2018. The cage-front detail adds a hint of skin without revealing too much.
Cage Front One Piece, $88
Lace-up detailing dominated the ready-to-wear runways last year on everything from cage-front blouses to peekaboo footwear. Luckily, this sexy trend migrated over to swimwear.
Zara One-Piece, $172
It’s hard to remember a time when stripes weren’t a summer staple. Think of them as the new neutral, and mix-and-match with a printed cover-up or sarong.
Yasmeen Suit, $168
This black one-piece swimsuit is anything but basic; it features a high-neck with a peekaboo cutout and a lace-up in the back that’s adjustable, so you can get the coverage that’s right for you.
Alexa High Neck Maillot, $174
Finding the perfect shade of gold in a bathing suit is nearly impossible. When you see it, you just have to take the plunge — no questions asked.
Bianca Bodysuit, $182
It’s daring. It’s unapologetically sexy. And it’s got a lot to say. Sometimes you just need to let your suit do all the talking.
Rising Sun Strapless, $184
