Summer 2020: One-Piece At A Time

The One-Piece is the LBD of the swimsuit world. While the bikinis and tankinis of the world have songs written about them (and more than a few iconic movie scenes) it’s the One-piece that most women across the world have in their closets (by over 20% compared to their two-piece sisters). The biggest reason for this is simple. Generally speaking, the one-piece offers more comfort and ease of wear.

So does that make our intrepid heroine some boring little wallflower? OHN ladies. Designers this season are bringing the sexy, flirty and downright fun into their 2020 looks. Some are silhouettes of returning success and some are completely new trends taking on a life of their own.

Here are some of the major trends we’re seeing, coming in hot for Summer…

RETURN OF THE MONOKINI

What do you get when you cross the sexiness of a 90s high cut, with support of a full one-piece suit? Yes ladies, the Monokini is back, and trending all over this season. More daring than its side-cut cousins, a true monokini is essentially a  high leg cut bikini connected in the front either by fabric or fabric-plus-accessory (such as a metal ring or other object). The fabrics can match or the top & bottom can be completely different, thereby creating the illusion of a two-piece.

MESHING IT UP

Another fantastic trend that’s going strong is mesh. Like the Monokini concept, it’s popular in giving you a best of both worlds, specifically – sexy and secure. The amount of ‘peekaboo’ element options out there can be anywhere from modest to daring, making the choice entirely yours on how much you want to show…

DYING FOR TIE DYE

Like a colorful tidal wave, tie dye has taken 2020 by storm. It’s everywhere from shirts to dresses to jewelry, and yes, even swimwear. This fun, playful pattern lends itself naturally to a day at the beach.

ANIMAL ATTRACTION

Everyone loves a good animal print. Unlike previous seasons however, when the motto was “anything goes”, Summer 2020 is seeing two definite favorites – Tiger Print and Snakeskin.

BLACK & WHITE AND FUN ALL OVER

You can’t get more classic than black and white. This season it’s everywhere from stripes to color blocking to fun designs.

MAD FOR METALLICS

While ultra-dripping shiny gold and silvers are still around, this season’s metallics are moodier, erring towards darker jewel-tones. The results are a dark visual treat making you stand out in a crowd of brights and expected tropical prints.

NEON BRIGHTS

Following in the footsteps of ‘all things 90s’ that’s happening this year, our eyes are tearing up once again for the fluorescent fun that is Neon. Ironically this incredibly bold color palette is amazingly compatible with many skin tones, making it a much easier choice to wear than you’d expect.

ONE SHOULDER UP

We first saw this trend back in early 2019 but it’s staying power looks to be strong all year long.

  • Boston Proper, Goddess Crossover One-Piece $158
  • Catalina, Asymmetrical One-Piece $72
  • Kona Sol™, One Shoulder Flounce One-Piece $44.99
  • Nicole Miller New York, Covertible One-Piece in Cabana $24.97

THE SHORT & LONG OF IT

Last but definitely not least, this is a trend we can all get behind. Because whether you’re super active or just prefer not to expose those shoulders, healthy skin is a beautiful thing.
