Although there’s nothing quite like an itty bitty or vintage-inspired high-waisted bikini for lounging by the pool, we have to admit that one-piece swimsuits are giving them all a run for their money. After years of far too few one-pieces available, both luxury and mass retailers alike have swung to the opposite side of the pendulum, and chic one-piece options are everywhere—so much so, that we’ve had no trouble at all saying goodbye to our triangle two-pieces. Even those who have sworn they’ll never abandon your favorite bikini will have a hard time resisting these gorgeous swimsuits this season.
And while it used to be difficult to find one-pieces in styles that didn’t look like you were about to run a swim meet, they’re now available in spades. Even better, you don’t have to settle for two or three interchangeable and largely unflattering silhouettes. If you have any preconceived notions about one-piece swimsuits, throw them all out the window. Cut-out styles, fun and funky prints, on-trend colors—they’re all ready to worn as you hang out by the water.
Brands like Mara Hoffman and Beach Riot offer animal print styles that could easily double as an off-duty bodysuit, and both Aerie and H&M have swimsuits that are minimalist but statement-making. Plus, the color-blocked versions from Summersalt are just begging to be worn with a pair of oversized sunglasses. The possibilities are endless, folks.
So whether you prefer to keep swimsuits strictly poolside or want multiple ways to wear your one-piece (Try pairing your favorite with some cut-off denim shorts this summer for a seriously cool look!), you should definitely stock up on a few. After all, the one-piece swimsuit isn’t just for showing less skin or making it easier to play an impromptu game of beach volleyball—it’s majorly chic, too. And, of course, we found 15 styles we’re dying to add to cart. You can shop them all (and you really will want to shop them ALL) below. It’s been real, bikinis.
Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.
