Now that the weather is starting to warm up and summer is just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about bathing suit season! I know that this isn’t always the most pleasant thought, but thankfully for those of us who don’t feel like strutting around in an itsy bitsy bikini, one-piece suits are in style this season. Check out these trends to find a suit that “suits” your style!
From home furnishings to clothing, retro pieces are showing up everywhere right now. This swimsuit by Lolli is no exception. The illusion of a high-waited separate bottom is flattering on just about any figure, and the stripes and bow top will make you feel like you’ve stepped off of a beach from the 1950’s.
Bold patterns are everywhere right now. If you want to be sure to stand out, go for a suit with vivid colors and mixed prints. Mara Hoffman’s one piece is perfect for anyone looking for some eye-catching swimwear, as it includes figure flattering designs and tons of bright colors. Plus, the tied back adds an extra flare.
Show off your boho-chic style with a crochet bathing suit this summer. Not only do they look cute poolside, but they can also be worn as a layering piece under shorts and a kimono for a laid-back style when you need a break from the sun. This suit from M&S is ultra sexy and will be sure to grab the attention of many.
On those days that your bikini body could use a little outside help, a structured swimsuit is great. Look for one with a bustier-style bra top, like this piece by Ted Baker. It will look extra slimming and allow you to channel your inner Marilyn Monroe.
Sometimes one-pieces can feel a bit too frumpy. Spice up your look with a cutout suit. These allow you to show a little bit more skin, while also flattering your body shape through added curves in the material. Agent Provocateur offers this one-piece, which takes the look to the extreme, but you can opt for a more subtle version and still be on trend.
