Whether you’re hitting the beach or lounging by the pool, dive into this summers hottest swimwear trend: the one piece. The much-touted two-piece trend has gotten far too hackneyed for my liking. Fortunately, the tides are turning, with the one piece and monokini making their way back on the runway. The wonderful thing about the one piece is its versatility, which can range anywhere from modern and sophisticated to romantic and feminine, giving one a plethora of ways to style it.

Personally, I would style this trend in two different ways. If you’re a fish in the sea like I am, you would want to focus on functionality and style it minimally. Some wide-framed sunglasses, a big tote, and the perfect beach waves will suffice in making you look glamorous in the water. However, the ladies who love to make a statement at the summer pool party would want to pay attention to detail and accessories. The answer is always to pair this look with an assortment of jewelry, including body chains, layered chunky bracelets and a floppy hat. The one piece is frequently underrated in our modern times, so if you’re feeling adventuresome I would give this look a shot.
