Suited For Summer

Growing up in Surf City USA {literally- my elementary and high schools were yards from the beach}, I felt there was always a stigma with one-piece swimsuits: They were for kids and moms, and no one in between. Sure, the tankini had its moment somewhere in middle school, but never the one-piece.

As I get older though, with expanded horizons, I have come to really appreciate the one-piece. In keeping with a more-is-more mentality, I have discovered such a subtle sexiness about leaving a little more to the imagination, that a bikinis do not. This is not to say I am making a full conversion this summer, because bikinis do make for great tanning {sans awkward lines}, but I will definitely be investing in more onesies for taking dips.  Here are some of my favorites, left to right:

One-Pieces: Oscar de la Renta Striped Twist-Front One-Piece Swimsuit {how great would this suit be with a red sarong for Fourth of July} >  Gottex Bandeau One-Piece  >  Marc by Marc Jacobs Hayley Stripe Cutout Maillot  >  Thayer Halter One-Piece *Little Black Suit

Bikinis: Mara Hoffman Pow Wow Bikini {comes with straps if you need extra support}  >  Isabel Marant Waikiki Reversible Printed Bikini
