The weather has been great lately and as we ease into summer, now is the time we start taking trips to the beach. As I examine my drawer exploding with bikinis, I wonder which I should choose. The thought of wearing that lonesome one piece at the back of the cupboard hasn’t even crossed my mind. So I gingerly chose a nice blue one with white poka dots, draped over the side and tangled in a mess of other bikinis. I spend a happy day at the beach, studying for exams and soaking up the sun. However, I don’t feel the same way I do when I normally dress. I don’t feel as confident because there are a hundred other malibu barbies strutting around in poka dot bikinis. I realized that maybe if I had worn that one piece, I would have felt more confident, more unique.
That is a mistake I don’t want anyone else to make. The problem with swim suits is that they all look so similar. And there’s only so much you can do with a bikini. One pieces/monokinis are unique because there are so many different styles and ways to wear them whether they have cute cut outs, a jaw dropping color scheme or just use an interesting fabric. Not only are they super fresh, they also flatter your figure and is a good alternative if you have a bit of a tummy. This summer, one pieces are back in.

A lot of the swimsuits shown have strong geometric patterns, making them look bold and modern. The ruffles are a good compliment as well because they look flirty and fun - perfect for summer. So get out, enjoy the sun and work that one piece!
