Sure, bikinis are a swimwear staple and may have previously been the go-to style, but today’s one-piece swimwear selection is chicer and more flattering than ever before. Whether you prefer a more modest silhouette and prefer to avoid showing off too much skin in public or want a fit that’s practical for swimming or beach volleyball (read: one that will stay put and not end up in a wardrobe malfunction) or maybe you simply prefer the design just because.
Sure, a decade or so ago, you’d be hard-pressed to find a style-forward one-piece that didn’t resemble a lifeguard uniform or something from your grandmother’s closet, but now one-pieces are undeniably on-trend, hugging your curves in all the right places and sporting avant-garde and apparel-inspired cuts and designs. In fact, cute one-piece swimwear pieces are literally everywhere at the moment—so much so, that you’ll probably have no trouble at all bidding farewell to your once-beloved triangle two-pieces. From color-blocked designs to styles with frills, ruffles, and flirty cut-out details, there’s certainly no shortage of fashionable one-pieces to choose from.
STYLECASTER’s mantra is ‘Style To The People’— and our mission is to be an accessible, inclusive, ahead-of-the-trend destination for millennial and Gen Z women who want to live with style and substance. Our fashion, beauty and lifestyle coverage is equal parts informative and inspiring, and at once aspirational yet attainable.
