One Piece Perfection – Summer Suits for 2018

East Coast Fashion Editor :

Winter has definitely hit hard this year, and we cannot wait to see some higher digits (personal editor’s note: if I never hear the words “bomb cyclone” again this year, it won’t be too soon!). So in the meantime while we wait for the mercury to rise, we’ve been plunging headfirst into this season’s swim suits. And we are so happy we did. Designers this year will have you coveting so many looks, you may just need to buy yourself a few (or three…or four…)!

A welcome return to the swimsuit roster this year is the One Piece. We like to think of it as the LBD of swim suits. Breaking down 2018, here are some of our favs.

Belted – We love the look of retro elegance, and these belted styles don’t disappoint

Shop This Look : Deep Red Self Tie Ruffles One Piece $28, Belted Halter One Piece $89, Solid and Striped The Nina Belted Ribbed Solid One Piece $178, Eres Studio Spray Belted Suit $540, Hunza G Solitaire Embellished Seersucker Swimsuit $180

Cut Outs – What started as the ‘it’ trend in dresses, shirts & skirts has made it’s way to this year’s swimwear. We love how it adds a little skin without having to go full 2-piece.

Shop This Look : One-Shoulder Yellow/White Two Tone Cut Out Suit $32, Cut Out Stripe One Piece Suit $32, Blue One Shoulder Cut Out Suit $40, Plus Size Floral Halter Suit $35
