THE RETURN OF THE ONE-PIECE SWIMSUIT
Bold colors and inspired cuts elevate the old-school style.
It's a mainstay for Olympians and other competitive swimmers, but the one-piece is reaching new fashion heights. Combining today's technical fabrics with dramatic cutouts, of-the-minute colorations, and pretty details like scalloping, these new designs are right in step with runway trends. Here, six picks that are perfect for the pool or the beach.
ADAY FOR THE WIN SWIMSUIT
Double your options with this reversible one-piece. Trimly cut with bonded seams, its sleek shape features a scuba fabric made from recycled materials (like reclaimed plastic bottles).
SOLID AND STRIPED THE BALLERINA COLOR-BLOCK SWIMSUIT
This color-blocked style has a flattering wrapped leotard effect.
FLAGPOLE ALI ONE-SHOULDER SWIMSUIT
This suit resembles an abstract wave in contrasting pool blue tones. But it's engineered for activity too (think: beach volleyball), with a no-slip strap and four-way stretch material.
CALVIN KLEIN BEACHWEAR PRINTED SWIMSUIT
Baywatch red makes this sporty, scuba-inspired suit stand out. Plus, elastic side panels with the iconic label nod to the brand's bodycon underwear heritage.
MIKOH MAHINA ONE-PIECE
Like the little black dress, you can count on the little black swimsuit. This high-necked stunner has both revealing side cutouts and peek-a-boo details to show off a toned upper body.
MARYSIA ANTIBES MAILLOT
Ultra-feminine but thoroughly modern at the same time, this style comes in either blush or black. The delicate scallop edge and bandeau-style top give it some extra beach-going panache.
