Forget the notion that one-piece bathing suits are boring, or should only be worn by your mom. This summer, the one-piece is making major fashion waves with sexy cutouts, plunging necklines and flattering cuts. SHOP six stylish options right here.
Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj have proven cute one-piece bathing suits are not just a myth in their new “Feeling Myself” music video. The duo are just the latest among the style-savvy to get on board with the one-piece swimsuit trend for summer 2015. See our top picks to find your perfect one-piece for summer, pair it with some major attitude and hit the beach (or the inflatable pool if you’re hanging with Bey and Nicki) in style.
Cute One-Piece Bathing Suits — Meet Your Match For Summer 2015
Celeb affinity for the one-piece aside, we’re loving the look because it’s an unexpected swimsuit option with endless cut, pattern and styling options. You can go bold with a color and cutout combo, or keep it classic with a monochromatic look and simple cut. Throw on a pair of shorts, and you’ve quickly transitioned your outfit from beach to backyard barbeque.
For a super sexy look, Mara Hoffman Lattice Maillot, $253, is a cool tribal printed suit with lattice cutouts along the front and back with criss-cross straps.
For another cutout option that isn’t quite as revealing, Jessica Simpson Starburst Cutout One-Piece, $112, still gives you a bright tribal print, but shows a little less skin.
Rock two patterns at once with OP Retro Key Largo Twist Monokini, $19.96, which combines a horizontal stripe bottom with a tropical printed cutout top. The bandeau style comes with a removable strap, for a halter top option as well.
Seriously Stylish One-Piece Bathing Suits
But if cutouts aren’t your thing, you can still make a major statement in your one-piece. American Apparel The Gloria-V One-Piece Bathing Suit, which retails for $50, will definitely turn heads with its plunging, sheer paneled neckline.
If you’re looking for a fun, summery print, Nanette Lepore Havana Tropical-Seductress, $148, combines a multi-colored tropical print with a geometric cut and black trim. Plus, it comes with a removable strap, so you can wear it as a halter for more support.
For a more high-fashion look, Victoria’s Secret Forever Sexy Belted Asymmetric One-Piece, $78.50, brings a sexy feel to sophistication with a one-shoulder cut and fitted skinny belt across the waist.
